I am on my second Pair of Oakley fives, the lenses on the first pair got scratched pretty bad in the first 6 months, I lived with the scratches for another 6 months. I eventually broke down and bought a new pair, this time I took great care of the glasses and they still managed to get some scratches on the lenses after about 3 months. I spoke with Oakley and they said I was SOL. I really liked the way these glasses fit my face, except for the fact that they wouldn't stay on top of my head. I'm going to try the Spy Dirty Mo's next

I love this biner, I have last years version on the rope end of my quickdraws. I paired them up with Petzl Spirits and Petzl's dogbones. These things are super easy to clip, smooth action. They are big enough to stabilize the biner with you middle finger, then clip the rope through with your thumb and pointer and never have to worry about you middle finger getting in the way of the gate or rope. There is also a little ridge on the spin which helps when pinching the rope into the biner and it looks like they added some grip on the spine to help even more (that's a change from last year). This year they changed some of the strengths, the open gate used to be 9 kn and is now 8 and the minor axis in now 8kn and used to be 7, take that for what it is, i think i would rather have the higher open gate strength then more minor axis strength.

I ordered these biners because I really like the nose design on the bolt end biner. I received then and noticed that the rope end biner was really wimpy I then did a little more research and found out that the rope end biener is only rated to 7kn, I read somewhere that the typical sport lead fall ranges between 2-5kn, I wasn't okay with the 7kn rating.

Theses slings are great I use them with a combination of the petzl spirit for the bolt end and the black diamond livewire biner for my quickdraws. The thick nylon keep the draws from twisting and the rubber protector on the rope end of the sling not only keeps the biner in place but protects the sling from rubbing against the rock.

I like it, I use it on the end of my Metolious PAS I keep the end loop of the PAS inside of the rope keeper and then put all of the loops in the biner but outside of the rope keeper. when it comes time to clip in at the end of a sport climb I drop all of the other loops, clip the biner in and adjust my slack, works great.

I bought these as spares to use while I get my other shoes resoled. They have a thick tongue which is cushy and comfortable but there is a seam that sticks out inside of the shoe where the tongue meeds the rest of the shoe that digs into my little toe,it drives me nuts, the top of the heel also digs into my Achilles. They aren't very sensitive, maybe I'm not used to them yet I don't know, I just can't wait for my pontas'es to get back
