This is just a quick note before some coming articles. The Trail Factor 50k went down yesterday in the pouring rain and deep mud. More on that to follow as soon as I can walk again. Reflection on training strategy, nutrition, and how I’m good at breaking shoes to follow.[divider_line]
Portland, OR based Northwest Alpine may be a new kid on the scene, but that’s not to say that they don’t pack years of experience into their thoughtful, durable, and American-made technical apparel.

Instead of dropping your dollars on some Chinese-made REI jacket designed by a monkey, think about investing in solid gear, made locally, with the best materials available.
