10 Best Hiking Shoes and Boots of 2018 — CleverHiker
At CleverHiker, we almost always backpack in lightweight trail runners on our spring, summer, and fall trips. They keep our feet nimble, don’t give us blisters, dry quickly, have excellent traction, and don’t exhaust our legs over long days of hiking. They also don’t require a break in period and last for 500-700 trail miles. That said, footwear is a highly personal choice, so we recommend finding what will work best for you. Below we discuss the critical considerations for purchasing backpacking footwear and recommend our top choices for trail runners, hiking shoes, and hiking boots.

Border Route Trail
"The Border Route Trail is a 65-mile long hiking trail that crosses the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) in the far northeast corner of Minnesota (Arrowhead) and follows the international border between Minnesota and Ontario, Canada. It was the first long-distance, wilderness backpacking and hiking trail in Minnesota planned and constructed by volunteers" The Border Route Trail is a rugged wilderness hiking trail that follows ridge-lines and the top of high cliffs wherever feasible. Therefore, hiking the trail offers expansive views across the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota and Quetico Provincal Park in Canada. Even though the trail is maintained by crews of volunteers, downed trees and patches of thick brush are common obstacles on the trail. Because of its rugged and primitive nature, it provides solitude and a true wilderness experience but also requires good map and compass skills. Hiking the trail is definitely much different from hiking your local city park.

Exos Bravo Tactical Military Assault Backpack 34L - Exos Gear
With a 34L capacity per Active Standard (measured in accordance with ASTM F2153) , the five zippered compartments provide plenty of space to secure large tools and gear as well as compartments and pockets to organize small components. The rear most zippered compartment is great for carrying a water bladder as it has an output for the drink tube, or it could be used to carry a standard size 15 inch laptop instead. Built with a focus on quality and functionality, the Bravo’s outer shell material is durable 600D polyester with extra reinforcement at load bearing seams and strap connection points. Ventilated mesh padding on the shoulder straps and back area provides superior comfort and air flow. Each side has a 3” x 2” Velcro loop pad to attach any standard embroidered or PVC Velcro patch. Internally the compartments feature organizational pockets for securing and separating gear. For security, the cord pulls can be cinched together by zip tie, cord, or through the suspension straps to deter would-be pickpockets. External MOLLE webbing is stitched according to military specifications, with 1″ tall webbing and standard 1″ spacing. This webbing is compatible with MOLLE pouches and accessories, creating the ability for the user to build a fully modular pack system.
