REI Gear Check: Running the Wonderland Trail at Mount Rainier

REI Gear Check ft. Honey Stinger Waffles

Here are the essentials that Ortega and Arnold wore, carried and ate on the Wonderland Trail—as well as their thoughts on why you should consider these picks for your next trail-running adventure.

Two, thin layers of baked, battery goodness sandwiching a thin layer of organic honey, Honey Stinger Waffles deliver easy-to-digest energy that tastes like a treat. “Sweet breakfast flavors on the trail? Yes please!” Ortega jokes. Plus, they stay solid in hot weather but don’t turn too hard in cold weather. “I haven’t had them freeze or melt on me once,” he says. $1.95 – $2
