In line with her pursuit of adventure-style running, La Sportiva Mountain Running® athlete Kelly Halpin kept her gear to a minimum during her summer running trip to Greenland. Here, Halpin reviews two running kit essentials; the La Sportiva Hail Jacket and the La Sportiva Akyra GTX.
Clocking in at 9.6 ounces, the Hail Jacket is the ultimate lightweight and waterproof running shell. Underarm mesh vents offer an easy outlet for dumping heat, while the integrated stow sack makes this piece super packable. Equipped with a hood to provide protection from unexpected showers, the Hail is ready for any and all Mountain Running® objectives.
Armed with the bulletproof Trail Rocker2™ outsole, the Akyra GTX promises to deliver confidence-inspiring traction over the most demanding terrain. Combined with a breathable and waterproof Goretex lining, and wear-resistant welded TPU and AirMesh MicroLite uppers, the Akyra GTX is a workhorse Mountain Running® shoe designed to take down the burliest mountain challenges.
