My new favorite trail runner. Sole seems like a speedcross, but lower drop and lower stack height get rid of the weight and ankle stability problems with the speedcross line. Enough padding for mid- and long-distance stuff if you're a relatively neutral/efficient runner. Fit is slightly more generous than speedcross' tight toe box, but true to Salomon size.

This is the softest shirt ever. Incredibly light, too. Definitely warmer than the equivalent weight synthetic knit/mesh fabric, but probably about the same temp as a synthetic non-mesh shirt (e.g. capilene). Quite comfortable even when sweaty with no discernible odor after a few sweaty wears. Very quick drying. For me, it's perfect for either lower-output activities above 65˚ or higher output below that.

Fit is a comfortable slim fit. At 5'10, 180# athletic build, L is comfortable and not skin tight, but also not too long. M would probably work because of stretch, but would be very form fitting.

A great boot for people who usually hike and backpack in trail runners (me) but find that a bit of a stiffer show or slightly more support would be nice when carrying heavier loads (also me).

Lots of dust and dirt will come through the mesh, but it's worth it for the breathability.

No smell, no blisters, super comfy in a broad range of temps. These are slightly thicker than Smartwool ultralight, I'd probably call them lightweight, but they're my favorite running/hiking/cycling socks. You should get them. They're great.

Very warm for its weight and packed size (on par or slightly warmer than a Patagonia R1). Super comfortable and soft. Reasonably durable so far, although I don't wash it often because it avoids odor really well. Obviously not wind-resistant at all, so it works best as a base- or mid-layer.

I'm often between a Medium and Large depending on fit and brand (5'10", 180#, wide shoulders and chest that often don't work with slim cuts). This would be pretty skin tight in Medium, which works as a tight baselayer but not as well for casual/travel wear. It's a comfortable fit in Large, not too loose or relaxed.

Not super durable (starting to pill after not-that-many washes), but it does the trick as a lightweight, odor-resistant base layer. It's not falling apart or tearing, but is obviously pilling.

True to size. Medium works as a tight-fitting baselayer for me. It fits over large cycling/running quads, which is nice.

Very comfortable, surprisingly durable for how thin the fabric is, and very odor resistant. I use this as a baselayers or light-midlayer when traveling or in the backcountry (e.g. multi-day yurt trips) when I want to be able to wear things a number of times without getting too smelly. The short sleeve and quarter zip versions are great, too.

I'm often between a Medium and Large depending on fit and brand (5'10", 180#, wide shoulders that often don't work with slim cuts). I've found that Smartwool's slim fit is pretty skin tight in Medium, which works as a tight baselayer but not as well for casual/travel wear. These are a little loose on me in a Large (a relaxed fit, perhaps), but not too big. Smartwool also makes a 150 t-shirt that's not a slim fit (the v neck, I think)—that one is too big in a Large for me.

Warmer than a thin polyester or nylon baselayer, but still comfortable in a wide range of temps. The long sleeve and quarter zip versions are great, too.

Very light, hopefully fairly protective. The webbing attachment is easy to use and pretty secure, particularly for how minimal it is. Comfortable overall. Fits the bill for a well-ventilated helmet that you can wear on the way up and the way down when touring.

My wife loved these for a hut trip in the Tetons. They fit true to size, which is a challenge for half sizes. She sized up to a 9 from a street shoe of 8.5 and found it a bit loose, but nice for lounging and fitting thick socks underneath. The tread is adequate for walking through the snow to the outhouse or chopping wood, although you wouldn't want to be post-holing in these—you'd have a bootie full of snow. There needs to be a packed-down path to be comfortable.

They seem to be relatively odor-resistant, which is nice when you want to put them on your stinky ski-boot-feet without regretting it later.

Very comfortable. The visor is handy if you're riding west after work and still want to see the trail. Lots of adjustability in the head cage and straps.

Only downside is that the visor attachment points aren't super sturdy. It won't fall off (because of the way it's attached to the straps), but it was a little disappointing given the overall quality of the helmet. That said, I'd still buy it again – very comfortable and well ventilated.
