Our crew over here at the Gear Institute is happy to welcome Allison Pattillo to our test team. Allison is a former editor at Trail Runner who’s built a great reputation in the industry as a diligent gear tester and a wonderful person to work with. We’re thrilled to have her on board.

Allison will be testing women’s running apparel—everything from technical running jackets to running bras to tights—in challenging real world conditions. That won’t be hard to arrange: Allison lives at 9,000 feet in a strawbale home in the Colorado mountains.

For more about Allison, check out her bio here.
