Since the last update I have put another 60 miles on the Mountain Khakis Cruiser pants for almost 120 miles total. Amazingly, they still look almost new. Comfort remains top notch and the durability of the pants has been great. Overall, I have been really pleased with the Mountain Khakis Cruiser Pant. Click HERE for my final update.
Sunglasses are an essential part of my kit. My eyes are very sensitive to light and even in overcast conditions I wear sunglasses, or I end up squinting which leads to headaches. adidas has become a player in the performance eyewear market and I will be reviewing their Evil Eye Evo Pro glasses over the next few months.

I have been dabbling with calve compression sleeves for the past few years while running marathons and ultramarathons. I am not sure that I have empirical data, but since I started using the calve sleeves, I have had better muscle recovery and no calve cramping while racing. The only challenge was that I needed to wear a compression sleeve and running socks. Injinji has come out with a compression sock that I hope can do both. I will be reviewing the Injinji Ultra Compression OTC socks over the next few months. Read on for my initial thoughts.
