New shoes and sleeping pad

Some new stuff that has dropped in lately.

The sleeping pad, a Therm-A-Rest NeoAir X-Lite looks very promising and will replace my Z-Lite and also complement it during the winter to add more comfort.

Trailroc 245

I also got a pair of new Inov-8 shoes. It’s not that I don’t like my Roclite 295’s but they’re run a little small (pun intended 😉 ). So for running around for an hour or so they’re fine but when I walk for several hours my feet get swollen and I guess that I’ll get hurt eventually. Won’t risk it on a 3+ day trip. To be on the safe side I got these Trailroc 245’s instead. I must say that I love the box that they came in! 🙂

These I got two a week or so ago. Will serve as extra grip for the Ultamid in stormy weather.

Nice touch with MSR logo on the stakes. They’re a little heavier than the others I’ve got. 9g per piece.

  1. Possible stupid question, but im new into the hiking game. Do you have to manually blow up the neoair? Does it have a pump? Thinking of getting this for my first thru hike! Cheers.
