This is a really good pack when you have it packed full. It holds a bit of everything - your fluids, stuff in a jacket, extra shirt, food, gels, and headlamp. But once you consume the fluids and eat your food or put on your jacket, the extra compartment becomes a bit floppy. The Nathan HPL OO8 is much better (although it holds less). The HPL 008 holds true to your body snuggly without smothering it and doesn't flop around.

The Salomon Hawk seems like a good shoe, but it is too narrow for my just a bit wider than average foot. And, I don't care for the Salomon lacing system - it doesn't permit you to adjust the tightness in different places of the shoe. However, the shoe seems to have a grippy tread and good structure. It's also light weight for a trainer. Overall, it's probably a good shoe, but it just doesn't fit my foot.

This is a really nice shoe: very comfortable and can wear for a long run right out of the box. However, what I found is the toe box is very wide. I have a wide foot and when I laced these up, I found that the lace loops got very close to each other. I also found the material fairly stretch and so the shoe didn't provide much support when running turns. I found the shoe constructed much more like cross between a road racing flat and a road trainer. It is light, but for a trail shoe, this shoe lacks the luggy tread needed for any kind of rugged trail. It also lacks forefoot cushioning and rock plate. These shoes would be good for smooth trails such as a rails to trails trail, but not the rooty, rocky, and some muddy single track forest trails I run in the Finger Lakes upstate NY area.
