Gear Reviews

Gear that I use, or wish I was using.  In some cases, reviews of said gear.


Wishlist: I am happy with the above!  But I would like to give some Vibram FiveFingers KSO Treks a try, and any other minimalist shoes that hit the market in the future.  Preferably before they hit the market. 😉


  • Garmin Forerunner 405 – nice because I can wear all day at work, have the HR monitor, and wireless syncing
  • Garmin Forerunner 205 – nice because it has a map view for trail running, better battery life extension option for ultras with a USB charger
  • Duracell MyPocket charger – takes AA batteries and can re-charge the 205 on the run for better ultra coverage


Wishlist: better Winter gear of some sort.  Any recommendations for wind/water resistant?  Need to give Feelmax toe socks a try.  Have some Merino wool base layers that I will be testing over the winter.


Wishlist: Need to get some Outdoor Research Water Bottle Parkas so I can train for some winter ultras.


  • Succeed S! Caps – I am a huge fan of these for electrolytes, though I take them in a much lower dose than suggested.
  • Hammer HEED and Hammergels – HEED is awesome because you can drink it all day and not get sick of it.  Hammergels are my preferred gels, but I’m not crazy about gels compared to other fueling options.
  • Clif Shot Bloks – these are my preferred fuel from a manufactured source.  Much easier to get down for me than gels, more “interesting” to eat.
