Review : Salomon Adv Skin 12

Pockets pockets and compartments compartments. Check out my review of a previous model here, or of the Adv Hydra 8 here. I’m all about pockets! This vest has lots of them! It also comes with different ways to attach your poles and an insulated bladder cover unlike the Adv Hydra 8 (but this was more…

Review : NURVV Run (follow up)

Read part 1 here! After part 1 of the review I had a weird issue. I went to charge my trackers. And nothing happened, nooo! 14 mins after sending an email to NURVV customer service, I had a very helpful reply. 17 minutes after that email I had confirmation a new charger was on the…

Review : Nurvv Run

This had tempted me for a while after I suffered a broken ankle, but I decided against it because of price. I then suffered a stress fracture on my left foot and decided to take the plunge… I was really hoping they’d help me identify why I have left sided issues, and what to do…

Review : Brooks Revel 4

Soooo I’ll be honest. I bought these because they were Christmas themed. And yes, I have only just got round to reviewing them, ha! My thought being, they will last a few years, because in December I will probably be doing ~100km a month, and I might be able to sneak a little bit of…

Review : Salomon Adv Hydra 8

The Adv Hydra 8 seemed like a relative bargain considering the brand, and the only place I can see it for sale is on Amazon, it doesn’t appear on the Salomon website. So I thought I’d give it a go. This vest comes with two bottles, and it was really great for the price I…

Review : HOKA ONE ONE Speedgoat 4

After loving my ATR 5 by HOKA ONE ONE I decided to try the Speedgoat 4 trail shoe. I usually wear a stability shoe for every day wear (the Brooks GTS that I love and would recommend in a heartbeat) but took a chance on these as a neutral shoe. THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE. That…

Review : Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20

See my review of the previous model, the 19 here. I love the GTS and my 19’s were pretty well worn out when the 20 made an appearance. Time for an upgrade! I love the 19’s a lot still, but they are completely done so I use them for cycling and bimbling around now. I…

Review : Brooks Cascadia 14 GTX

Take a look at my Cascadia 13 review here, if you’d like to see my thoughts on the previous model! After having great success with the Cascadia 13, I decided to get the Cascadia 14 GTX. This version of the shoe is the updated model, plus it has waterproofing! My first thoughts on the 14…

Review : HOKA ONE ONE Challenger ATR 5

I got a pair of these as my first HOKA ONE ONE purchase. I was amazed by a pair of shoes that claimed to be able to do road and trail… Fast and light on the trail, its midsole geometry ensures a smooth ride on the road. From the product description Interesting… Lots of my…

Review : Socks

I’ve made a whole awesome blog post about socks! They are often overlooked but they can make or break the state of your feet. Great socks = great run. Here’s what I have tried! Danish Endurance I have both the low cut and compression version of Danish Endurance socks. I really, really like them and…

Review : Zwift Running

One of the things I thought I’d try during these strange times is Zwift, as I mentioned in my at home ideas post. It seemed a brilliant way to still run with others (including my fellow running club goats), virtually! Essentially, you run on a treadmill and the app puts you on a virtual track…
