Scarpa's Zen is pretty narrow (although a wee bit stiff to start with) and with the extensive lacing you can tighten it up further. It's been my go-to knockabout shoe for over 18 months and is still in great shape. Otherwise I'd look at inov8 or La Sportiva.
These Roc packs had better be good. I'm still mourning the demise of the Ascent series, my Ascent 38 has simply got the best carry of anything I've tried, ever. Haglofs backpacks would look to be severely underrated - based on that and my Ace M, at any rate.
Not completely sold on the whole stretch pro shell idea. We had one from TNF in the store over the winter. It wasn't a great jacket, no doubt Haglofs have done a lot better with the hood and the cut (slimmer so you might actually notice the stretch), but the real problem is that the fairly minimal stretch doesn't really justify the price, which is stratospheric.
Lizard top looks gorgeous. I want one. In the blue.
Steady on, people! I didn't mean to say that powerstretch is too warm for everyone, just that it's too warm as a baselayer for me. I do realise that lots of companies make powerstretch in baselayer fits (Arc'teryx jump to mind), and indeed I have sold it for this use, but I personally wouldn't take what feels like 150-weight fleece as a baselayer unless it was really chilly. Certainly my powerstretch feels slightly warmer than my regular 100-weight microfleece, although that may be just the added wind resistance, and I also have a powerstretch-style top from Norrona that's definitely a LOT warmer (actually, now that I mention that, I think you've got the same one, Mr Carpenter That trollveggen warm 2 thing with the the lovely collar and the deepish zip). Certainly the moisture management of the stuff is really good, my worry is that I'd be producing unnecessary moisture.
Further thoughts - also a Haglofs Azer long-sleeve, a nice synthetic with no insulation but good wicking. Solid stuff for summer running. Powerstretch is definitely too warm as a baselayer unless it was absolutely bloody freezing, -15 or colder. The pricing on icebreaker has got a bit sarcastic, so I may start looking at other merino companies like Smartwool or chocolate fish, or just take the financial pain and keep building my x-bionic collection, which certainly has good versatility, I'll give it that - the trekking pants saw indoor tennis use this week, and my tennis is pretty serious business.
