These Bc pants are my favorite for hiking and bouldering, even in summer weather (below probably 88 degrees or so). They breathe like no other pant I've ever worn, while still holding up to scrapes and bumps against rocks, thorns and branches. Another thing I love about them is how stretchy they are, which makes scrambling up and around boulders much easier. ROCK ON BC!!

The Mini My Tighe is a nice knife, but for the price its going for here you might as well upgrade to the fullsize My Tighe from another seller. I love BC.com so I'm not trying to hate on them, but I got my My Tighe on ebay for a very good price. Other plus's are that the handle fits better in your hand, the blade is obviously longer, and it's slightly easier to open than the mini because it's thumb studs are better. And someone commented that the belt clip isn't reliable? Nothing wrong with the belt clip- I always make sure if I clip my knife to my belt or inside my pocket that it's in a safe place, and constantly make sure that I still feel it's weight. I've been trail running and rock scrambling with it clipped inside my pocket and it never came undone. :)

My shift welder hoody finally came today-and I was not disappointed. It is the best jacket EVER MADE. It allowed the ancient Atlantians to survive underwater and turn water into straight breathable air. No, but seriously this jacket is everything they say it is and more. Soft, breathable, Frickin' Sweet Looking, lightweight, mind-blowingly amazing feeling and looking, and amazingly comfortable. Did I say it looks really cool? My only complaint would be with the sizing. As usual BC makes the sleeves a little long, or maybe my arms are too short :( ! It's not long enough to be a problem though, thankfully. They also say that is is an athletic fit, and this is surely true, I am 5'9.5" and have recently dropped from 190 to 175 in the last couple months. At my current weight it fits pretty much perfectly, but with no room for a second layer below it. My biggest problem at this point is that its 80 degrees out in D.C. and I can't really wear it outside. It looks like its going to rain in a couple days and I'll get to go outside and dance in pure ecstasy. I might sleep in this jacket and nothing else tonight. I think I'm in love. Thank you backcountry.com .

Took these bad boys out for the first time today, and I was impressed. Took less effort to get up and over, as well as down rocks due to their incredible grip. Maybe it was all in my head, but if it helps give you confidence in your footing that sure is a plus. When I first tried them on I was afraid that they wouldn't tighten enough, but this fear was put to rest when I got on the trail and realized I had tightened them too much. After loosening them up a little they were quite comfortable and did their job. Would recommend these to anyone who loves scrambling.
