The Zipka Plus Headlamp is strong, light, and versatile. We were especially surprised by the brightness and efficiency as the batteries lasted for a full week of trekking through the Gobi Desert. We initially felt that we would be giving up some durability with the retractable head band but it continues to work after 6 months of use. If “going light” is a goal, this is your choice.

We received many favorable comments from the seasoned ultra marathon runners who have tried all brands. These gaiters are slightly more heavy duty than most and the closure enables a sure fit. Apparently the straps on most gaiters wear out and this pair was no exceptions. In their defense, we were running through rocky stream beds for the better part of a day. After 40 miles the hook wore through my laces. Both challenges were remedied with a little duct tape.

This shoe was chosen because of the tight mesh. Generally a Gore-Tex shoe will keep out the sand and dirt but is too hot. A mesh shoe is nice and cool but fills up with sand and dirt. This shoe is a perfect happy medium. I couldn’t tell a difference from an 8 or an 8.5 so you might want to round up a half size. The toe box was an excellent fit for my average width foot but I suspect that the fit would not work well for a wide foot.
