I bet you haven't yet considered the AfterShokz open-ear headphones. We have written a review on our blog site that will give you the info required. But in essence they do not go into your ear and use crazy bone conduction / military grade technology. There is even a wireless model using Bluetooth. Worth a look:

Please please please conside the Suunto Ambit2 S or the Polar RC3. They are absolutely mint watches and probably better than the Garmins!

VFF - Too good to be true?

I am in doubt that the site first mentioned is a Chinese counterfeit site but it makes it tough for real retailers of the product to hold up the actual prices which is why we have not stocked them so far. Sports Pursuit is an excellent place to shop if you can get some from there,

Running back pack

I have always used a Caribee pack for running / commuting. I normally do 6-10 miles with it with clothing filling it up and never had a problem. They are also great value:

Good ASICS shoe for low arch/ overpronation?

Posted: 05/08/2013 at 17:21

If you like Asics then we suggest that sticking with a brand you have found to be comfortable can be a good idea. But they don't really do high levels of support in their shoes if you really are over-pronating a lot. I suggest looking at the Asics GT 2000 but comparing that to the Brooks Adrenaline GTS which is an equivalent best-selling comfy shoe but the medial post is bigger and possibly better for you:

compression gear

There is no doubt that calf guards are both the cheapest item of compression gear but for my money the best and most effective for runners. I always suffer from tight calf muscles and strain them, especially the right one, regularly from marathon training. But wearing the calf guards really helps provide support and I do not suffer from any of the usual problems when I wear them during my training. They really help with recovery from a long run or injury too. These Compressport are my recommedation:

If you have not come across British brand Sunwise yet then give them a go. The lenses are great, many models come with 3 sets of interchangeable lenses, very durable and stylish too. Oh, and prices start from about £20 including a nice pouch.

High arches and overpronation

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 13:26

Sticking to the type of shoes that have proven to work for you is the best thing to do. A mild stability shoe may be offering comfort support under your arch opposed to being corrective given that if you have a high arch it will not be pushing it upwards. A neutral shoe may be better or worse for you - only testing would determine this and you have tested the mild-stability shoes. We have just added a blog to our site called running shoes for high arches which may help you learn more on the subject too.
