We’re back to brand-new picks


Check back next week for even more good stuff


Y’all, we’re back. Time passes differently on the trails, but I’m sure we can’t have missed much in the few days we’ve been out West. Oh, what’s that? We’ve been gone for months? I mean, that’s what it feels like, but can you blame us with a one-two punch of Broken Arrow and Western States? Anyway, let us know if you notice a bit of a trend in our picks this week…

Oh, right, duh, it’s just all going to be trail gear. Some shoes, some not-shoes, but all of it is available at Running Warehouse. No matter what we end up choosing, there’s always something to pick up. Our goal is to provide a few new selections each week, so check back real soon if you’re not into this week’s options.

If we’ve reviewed one of our picks, we’ll link it. If not, maybe just trust us. We’d buy all of this gear ourselves if we had an unlimited budget.

NOTE: We earn affiliate revenue from Running Warehouse, so anything you buy helps us keep the lights on.

Men’s Rabbit FKT 2.0 Shorts

To kick us off for the week, we have what might be my personal favorite pair of shorts of all time. People often complain that running shorts don’t have enough pockets, but they’ve clearly never tried Rabbit’s FKT 2.0. This version of the shorts goes even bigger on the storage, pairing a hip pocket that’s deep enough for a flask on each side with a smaller gel-sized pocket right behind it. On top of that, there’s a secure zipped pocket along the back of the waistband for valuables like your keys and phone.

Women’s Altra Lone Peak 8

Staying on the wild side, how could we not grab an update to one of the most popular zero-drop trail shoes of all time? That is, of course, the Altra Lone Peak, which rides on an even stack of Ego foam with an aggressive MaxTrac outsole along the bottom. Honestly, the latest Lone Peak doesn’t look too much different from its predecessor with a ripstop upper and minimal overlays, but this new version adds a StoneGuard plate for some much-appreciated protection from jagged stones and twisty roots.

Men’s Nike UTMB Energy T-shirt

We might not be tackling the year’s biggest trail races with the Swoosh on our back, but we can’t deny that Nike continues to kill it with its trail designs. I mean, this UTMB Energy design looks like it has Yeti claws grabbing onto the company’s trail logo — how cool is that? The only thing that could make it better is the fact that it comes in black, too, for the days you feel less colorful. Oh, and this one isn’t a performance fabric, so you might wanna hang onto it for post-run wear.

Women’s New Balance Fresh Foam More v5

Now, for a quick trail departure… yo dawg, I heard you like Fresh Foam, so we put some Fresh Foam on your Fresh Foam. I’m only half kidding, as the latest New Balance More has arrived, and it looks like it could be called the Fresh Foam Most. It has a lighter formulation of Fresh Foam, yet the stack looks even higher than before, so I reckon you might never feel the ground ever again in this one. We haven’t received our pairs just yet to give you our first impressions, but it’s gonna be a soft one.

Women’s Rabbit Deflector 2.0

Alright, back to the trails with a piece specifically designed to protect you from Mother Nature. The Rabbit Deflector 2.0 is all about, well, deflecting. It’s long-sleeve, hooded, and lightweight while offering a UPF rating of 50+, which is pretty darn good. We’ve reviewed the previous color of the Deflector, but this Sky Fern version just might be even better looking. Oh and how cool is it that there’s a watch window for easy access to your current pace?

Men’s Saucony Kinvara 15

And finally, we have the antidote to New Balance’s More v5 — an update to the low-stacked Saucony Kinvara. It’s hard to believe, but Thomas’s OG marathon shoe is almost old enough to drive, and it still hasn’t changed too much. The Kinvara is all about being light and quick, sticking to a slim bed of PWRRUN and strategically placed hits of rubber rather than a full coverage outsole. This year’s debut colorway is a huge improvement over the highlighter yellow launch of the Kinvara 14, too.

  3. To tell the truth, I would like to choose WOMEN’S PATAGONIA HOUDINI JACKET. The Houdini Women’s Hooded Jacket is an ultralight windbreaker for running, cycling, weekend hiking, light trekking and everyday use. The jacket is made of durable and lightweight ripstop nylon that provides wind protection. DWR water-repellent coating for added protection against moisture. The jacket can be worn over a base layer of clothing or lightweight insulations. The hood is easily adjustable with one hand by means of a retractable drawstring at the back of the hood. When secured, it fully retains peripheral vision. Sleeve cuffs with elastic insert. The bottom of the jacket is adjustable with an elastic cord with a lock. The back is rounded and slightly low, it covers the waist during bending over. One chest pocket with zipper. The jacket is very compact, it tucks away into its own chest pocket, which has a loop for hanging the jacket from a backpack. The reflective logo on the chest increases safety at night. The Houdini jacket is a comfortable, compact and lightweight full windbreaker with all the features you need.
