4 of 5 stars
First off, they look cool and stylish. For me, they run a 1/2 size big-usually wear a 9.0 and had to re-order a 8.5 not only for the length but the width of the forefoot. I did and will use them for what I call "technicle" trailrunning-pretty rocky terrain with elevation gain/loss. They are light, traction was adequate(on wet rocks not as good as other shoes I've used), stiff supportive sole. The only (-) is they seem to kind of force my heel into pronation and I notice on a rocky down hill I take aggressively a lot of force/presure is taken by the inner part of my big toe and first metatarsal-its kind of strange. I'm going to keep using them & see how they work out, maybe I'll end up giving them a "5" rating."

This pack performed excellent! Its light and durable with a lot of different compartments. I used it for an Alpine seminar on Mt. Hood..stuffed it full(with crampons inside) for the approach to camp at twin rocks and then used it on summit day with just neccesities. It was great! The only thing is you have to cinch the top compression straps tight or the frame will "ride" too high inhibiting cervical/head extension i.e. looking up.
