Kalenji Men's Trail Bag £12.99 at Decathlon

Found 3rd MarEdited by:"andrewp"
I am doing some long training runs and trail marathons this year and wanted a hydration pack that wasn't too large and without spending a fortune. I was going to spend a bit more than this, but at this price I decided to give it a go seeing as it was well reviewed. As well as the water bladder in the back it has space for 2 X 500ml water bottles at the front and pockets for various other bits and pieces.

Free click and collect is available or royal mail postage of £3.99.

CAPACITY14L in front and back pockets, gusset for reduction to 9L

MULTIPLE COMPARTMENTSSeparate compartment for 2L water bladder (sold with bag).

EASE OF USE2 large (0.5L) chest pockets for easy access to supplies.

Going off point from the deal so apologise but what would you advise for decent pair of trail running shoes for someone starting off? Thanks

Difficult one. I have done a lot of trail running, but when I bought my shoes I just picked a pair of Asics Gel Venture 5's that I liked the look of in the shop and felt comfortable when I tried them on. Think they were only £40 or so and I did a 35 mile trail event in them without any discomfort. I would say don't get fooled into thinking the higher the price the better the shoe.

Because I am doing more mountainous running on looser surfaces I want a pair of inov-8's, but they are towards the £100 mark, but seem to be what a lot of fell runners wear and have a different type of tread that is better for that kind of thing.

I have read some articles and guides saying to get your feet and stride etc. analysed, but I have also read a lot that debunk this thought and say to just go for comfort. Some people even blame the modern running shoe for causing more injuries than they prevent and advise going barefoot, so the correct answer is anyone's guess I suppose!

Voted hot for the included rape whistle
Can highly recommend for the price, bought for an upcoming ultra and used on training runs. Comfortable pack especially as suffer sometimes with shoulder issues but was still fine on a recent 28 miler.

Completely depends on your foot type. Have you had a gait analysis? I wear New Balance for trail.
Brilliant bag! Used it for the Centurion Grand Slam (4 X 100 mile ultras in 6 months) and was as good as anything I've used costing £100 or more

Adidas Kanadia (preferably 7.1 - the newer ones have had a redesign which isn't for the better) for me. Comfy and versatile - I've done fell races and OCR in them and they've never let me down.
OP - good spot.

Salomon Speedcross 4 or Inov-8 X-Talon.

You can pick up the Salomon's for pretty decent prices and if you can find the older Speedcross 3 it will be even cheaper.
Just to add another voice.

had this for 2 years and it’s been great, held up better than I’d though it would. Hated the bottles they sell to go in it so brought huh so cheap flexible ones from eBay for about £4 and it’s ace

I know I'm in a minority in the trail/hill running scene, but I just use an old pair of my road running shoes.

They happen to have a studded tread pattern, which works pretty well.

If you're a neutral foot, you can wear pretty much any shoe. But it's a case of finding what's comfy for you. I like a soft cushioning on the insole, some don't. Some rave about Asics, but I've never found a pair I get on with. I love 'ON-Running' and New Balance. But I'm mainly a road runner. My trails are New Balance as I said.

I would recommend ASICS. I have a pair of Gel Sonoma 3. I would also recommend a goretex pair to keep feet dry and warm. ASICS offer a simple heat/pressure analysis of your feet that takes 5 mins in the shop. This will ensure you get a comfortable pair. If you live near a McArthur Glenn outlet ASICS tend to have an outlet shop with very good discounts.

If you're doing a cross country run with river crossings or bogs, won't Goretex keep the water in? At least mesh dries out.

You are probably right, but the original post was for trail running. Goretex is great for puddles, Mud and wind

I think that’s the secret. It’s just whatever works best for each person. One shoe may work well for one and not another
Had lots of stuff from Decathlon and it always seems to be of a good quality; hot from me!

+1 for the Kanadia, I don't run trail regularly but I have a pair I've used year on year for the North Down's 18 mile run and they deliver. I used a pair of Adidas Terrex Tracerockers for snow running the past week and they were also really good.

All depends on what you need and what brands work for your feet. I use Salomon Speedcross 3's and 4's for anything particularly muddy/technical but I can only wear them up to marathon distance and even then I will end up with bruised toes. For longer or less muddy etc I use New Balance Summit V2's. New Balance have always worked for me as road shoes so the Summits are brilliant for me as the feel like my Rush V2's (ie weight and fit) but have a tougher sole and better grip than road shoes.

Kind of yes. I've never worn goretex versions but Speedcross 3's or 4's are good for wet days. It takes either deep puddles or long wet grass to let the water in but the best thing about them in the wet is that they do keep the water in. This might sound like a bad thing but it works better than road shoes or shoes that breath better as the trapped water heats up and as long as you keep on the move your feet warm up again. Whereas with road shoes you keep getting circulation of cold air which makes my feet like blocks of ice.
Just received the bag. Looks good, but that has to be the worst whistle ever. It makes a sound like a startled dormouse.

I haven’t tried the whistle yet, but I had an OMM bag with a similarly tame whistle that i’d be surprised could help anyone. Agree the bag looks good and i’m looking forward to trying it on a run
Its been a while since I got the bag, but only tried it for the first time at the weekend on an 18 mile run. Was very impressed with how secure it felt and although I initially didn’t enjoy the sound of water sloshing in the bottles, got used to it after a little bit. I didn’t use the internal bladder as I want to use that part for storage on fell runs that require equipment to be carried.
