    I wouldn't mind reviewing the Sole DK's or the Sole Ultra Softec's (size 10 shoe, but size F SuperFeet fit my heel the best). As for the freebies, how about the MH mesh hat?

  2. Runner Tammy

    If only I could review the Moeben sleeves with Zebra stripes. Maybe it would bring out my inner Zebra (which maybe means I would be fast or else eaten by a Lion!).Tammy

    I'd be in for the LED light! It's so flipping dark where I am running right now. I'd also like to try the sleeves. And freebies are always fun :)

  4. Argentine Rocket

    If you're interested in a non-ultrarunner's review, I'd be interested in trying some insoles (i'd have to read more about them to figure out which one would be best for me) and I could use a long-sleeve tech shirt this winter if you have any…

  5. Chris

    Wow, I'd love to review the Nathan light. And the Polar or MH hat would be great too. Since it never really get cold in NC the MH hat would probably be great for this time of year.cs

    Goat,I'm in for the Montrail Enduro Soles and the Superfeet, as well as the Moeben sleeves.Hope to see you out on the trails soon!

  7. The other brother

    I'd be interested in testing any of the insoles too (size 9 shoe). I've been trying to ween myself off the prescription orthotics, but I'm not too keen on the generic footbeds that come standard.-Nick

  8. Lori (toughnoodles)

    I would love to review the Sole Slim Sport insoles (or Karnazes Signature Editon insoles) or Moeben sleeves! and..I became a fan on Facebook. ;)

  9. Gavin Boyles

    Goat! My wife and child would love it if I could review the Nite Ize vest – all my early morning running makes them nervous!-sparky

  10. Dave

    I'd like to review the lights and vest… That will give me a reason to get my lazy bum out of bed in the morning! Also, I'm always up for free gear. :)

  11. Ryan "GandaMan&

    I'm up for reviewing any or all of these products:Body BottleNite Ize Marker BandNite Ize LED Sports Vest Nathan Magnetic L.E.D. Safety LightThanks!

  12. aerojust

    I would gladly review the body bottle or either of the Night Ize products. Now that winter is here I do 70% of my running in the dark, the Night Ize may just save my life!

  13. albiew

    I would enjoy trying the sleeves or the light vest and/or armband. I run at 5am and ANYTHING that would help me NOT get run over would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and see you in Black Mountain!Albie
