Trail Essen­tials

15 Must-Have Pieces PLUS Two Ul­ti­mate Trail Watches

Canadian Running - - DEPARTMENTS -

The North Face Flight Se­ries Fuse Jacket $300

Yes, it’s pricey for what looks like a ba­sic wind­breaker. But it just works, and is feath­erlight and will last for years in the moun­tains. It’s mak­ing it worth ev­ery penny.

Smart­wool men’s PhD 5" Short $65

Merino wool next to skin is a wise move. A slightly longer short on the trails is also a smart play.

Salomon Right Nice Mid-Hoodie $150

The Swiss Army knife of mid­lay­ers. Looks great on the streets, but works even bet­ter on the trails.

Smart­wool PhD HyFi Train­ing Glove $54

Great for the shoul­der sea­sons, with sub­tle re­flec­tive hits and smart­phone-sen­si­tive fin­ger­tips.

Smart­wool PhD Racer­back Seam­less Bra $68

A se­cure four-point sys­tem and chaf-free com­fort for long trail ad­ven­tures.

MEC Fair­point Jacket $110

A sim­ple, close-fit­ting trail com­pan­ion for days that stay on the cold side. And a great value.

The North Face AK Flight Se­ries Wind Pant $TBA

Like the Flight Se­ries jacket, su­per light­weight and highly pack­able. This pant could lit­er­ally be­come a life­saver.

Salmon El­e­vate O Tight $90

Who says you can’t have an in­ter­est­ing print while out in the for­est? The cut is also great for breezy, shade-cov­ered spring runs.

Arc’teryx Calvus Cap $40

Stow it or wear it, this light­weight cap wicks sweat away quickly and dries ridicu­lously fast.

Prince­ton Tec Sync Head­lamp $40

Sim­ple, easy to use and fully fea­tured. Equipped with a flood, spot and red beam, and it can spot and flood at the same time, just in case you’re run­ning in com­plete dark­ness.
