Cool Gear: Stio Basin XT Carryall

Tote Your Running Togs in Style

Stio Basin XT Carryall, $89

For when you can’t decide what to wear, at least you can carry it in style.

I’m the kind of runner who brings two pair of running shoes, a jacket, gloves, a couple different hats, flip flops, a hoodie, a puffy and an array of nutrition and hydration options to a race. Heck, even to a weekend run. Call me “Pig Pen” or call me, “prepared!” The Stio Basin XT Carryall let’s me take all my goods in one bag, and organizer pockets help me find it all. Two zippered interior pockets, and a zippered exterior pocket with key clip, come in particularly handy. It’s also durable and weather resistant for keeping my stuff dry or my car clean when I load the Carryall with wet and muddy gear.
