Trail Running Gear Online

John O'ReillyJul 8 2021, 10:44pmHi There,

New to trail running. Can anyone recommend reliable sites online to purchase gear ie. Standard race kit, Jackets, Hydration vests etc. Living in options such as The Edge, John Buckleys, 50 degrees North are available but choice can be limited.

Any tips are appreciated.

My advice on a jacket would be to buy the columbia outdry jacket, it's perfect for Irish weather and will last a long time. I think imra have some Columbia jackets available to buy too, maybe ask on imra(munster) Facebook page. When it comes to shoes there are so many choices, the best I have found are Saucony for trails and inov8 mudclaws for open mountains.
