I’ve been a big fan of Hydro Flask’s vacuum insulated hydration bottles for a while now. Their ability to keep my beverages warm or cold for an entire day is a luxury I’ve enjoyed at work, on road trips, and on many car camping weekends. Hydro Flask recently released two new products in their ‘Wine Bundle’ line, the 25 oz Wine Bottle and the 10 oz Wine Tumbler.
For the fourth year running, I have compiled a list of the trail running and lightweight hiking shoes I’m looking forward to most. Like previous years, Salomon, La Sportiva, and Altra make the list. There are also some newcomers. Here are 25 of the most exciting trail running and lightweight hiking shoes of 2018!
The KEEN Newport H2 Sandal is a popular water shoe built for hiking, walking, and travel adventures. The breathable upper uses nylon and neoprene for comfort and stability. The EVA midsole provides a stable base for all day comfort. The carbon rubber outsole handles trails and roads with ease. My son has been wearing the kid’s version of the KEEN Newport H2 for the past few months, and I’ll be sharing his experience in this review.
The TX3 is an approach shoe from La Sportiva that rides like a trail runner, yet provides the protection of a light hiker. With a breathable polyester mesh upper, a stable injected EVA midsole, and a super sticky Vibram MegaGrip outsole, there is a lot to love about the TX3.
