have fun, Rainier is a tough hike. My friends family did it, my friend got pretty roughed up by AMS. take your time and go easy, AMS will mess you up pretty bad.

i think it's about time to get a new backpack..i've had this northface one for a while but its only a 3000 inch and i need more room.

shou;d i go osprey or gregory? (looking for a bag with about 4000 cubic inch)

and i've always worn regular hikeing boots since i dont do much trail running, but if i were to get some "trail running" waffle type shoes, could I hike in those?

Personally, I'd go with gregory. I own one, and have used two others, and I won't buy anything less now.

If I'm packing light, and it's warm and dry out, I always hike in my trail running shoes. I'm not sure what you mean by 'waffle type', though. If you're going to have a heavy pack, or a long trip, stick with hiking boots.

Dana Design FTMFW! I have 3 packs by them and don't see myself using anything else. I'll post some pictures of my trips later if I get around to it.

I mean like track, waffle shoes. What i'm probably gona do is just pack them, and use em if its nice out or when crossing water (i have some aquatic ones by northface)

do you mean nike flats?
look kind of like this


if so i dont suggest using them for trail since they have almost no arch support which if you have a heavy pack on is no bueno and arnt all that great if you might twist your ankle

i suggest trail running shoes or even better half boots


and im now in washington

alright guys i need some unbiased answers here...

I went to northface a couple weeks ago, got these

http://www.thenorthface.com/opencms/...4X&language=en

for my week long white mountains hike. the guy at NF said they would be fine.

I go to EMS today, i'm looking for some dried meal stuff, ask about shoes and the guy there said the northface shoes i had (i was wearing them) would get absolutly destroyed and i need to get some all leather boots.
I dont want to spend 230 on the boots he suggested, is he just BSing me and those shoes would get destroyed, or will they be alright?

I've only used LL beans boots before, and never hiked more than 4 days

those are not good boots for a weeklong trip with a pack. all leather is a much better choice, but not necessary. you need something with much more support though

you think those would be ok? I just really want to get something cheap, I don't want to spend 250 on boots. I'll keep checking goodwill, a buddy of mine found some 190 boots brand new for 29 buck there.

What he said. Also, try on and buy insoles. The little flimsy things they give you don't do squat for support or comfort.

If i'm doing the white mountains for a week or so, should i go all leather? the granite there has cut up some of my hikers pretty bad, but i've never actually had a good pair of backpacking boots.

Look for a pair with a good rubber wrap around at the toe. My leather Asolos don't have one, and they're pretty scratched up at this point. It's not a problem, but if I were to buy another pair of boots, I'd get one with better protection for the toe area.

I just went on a week long climbing trip and through all the hiking I never wore anything other than my sandals.

wearing hiking boots is by far the better choice. its better for your feet, ankles, and back.
