Merrell Agility Synthesis Flex Trail Running Shoe
Available in both men’s and women’s, this trail shoe performs well on long distance runs, scrambles up mountains, and quick jaunts, and basically everything in between. It is lightweight and protective with an aggressive traction for whatever challenge you find on the trail.
Ultimate Direction Fastpack 15 ($119.95)
This is one of our go-to packs for long days on the trail. The 15L size means you’ll have plenty of space for that puffy jacket and all your run essentials. Even with plenty of capacity, this pack still fits securely with no bounce. The front zipper design is a huge life saver when trying to find something in the pack mid-run!
Ultimate Direction FK Gaiter ($49.95)
Rock and sand in your shoes are both a waste of time and no fun! These gaiters do their job and keep the junk out so you can do your job and enjoy the trail. Major perks to these gaiters include three size options so they fit snugly and replaceable strap.
Black Diamond Distance Carbon Z Trekking Poles ($169.95)
These folding poles are incredibly lightweight and strong. We couldn’t imagine heading up a volcano without them - plus they are a lifesaver on the steep downhills too. We’ve also been known to use these to fend off viscous dogs on the trail. When you aren’t using them, fold them up and throw them on your pack.
BUFF Original Multifunctional Headwear (Starting at $20.00)
You can never have too many Buffs! For both men and women, this multifunctional headwear is a must-have item. Use it to keep your ears warm, keep the sun off your neck (UPF 50 protection), and so much more. With countless colors, patterns, and styles, the possibilities are endless.
Book: Sky Runner: Finding Strength, Happiness, And Balance In Your Running By Emelie Forsberg ($29.99)
This inspiring book by one of the world’s best trail runners, Emelie Forsberg, is honest and rounded.
LIFEPROOF NÜÜD Phone Case ($89.99-$169.99)
You never know when the rain and snow will join you on the trail. This case keeps your phone protected from the water, snow, and dirt, but makes sure you can still capture the photos of every adventure.
Feetures Elite Light Cushion Mini Crew ($17.99)
Every runner would agree, you can never have too many good socks! We love the seamless toe on Feetures, super soft feel, and of course the lifetime guarantee. (Available in men’s and women’s styles)
Squirrel's Nut Butter SNB Stick ($12.95)
Squirrel's Nut Butter is a perfect stocking stuffer! Save the nipples! (And feet, crotch, underarms and more!) No one likes chafing and this anti-chafe salve is all natural with simple ingredients. If we are going to be rubbing something all over our body, it better be ingredients we can pronounce!
