Andrew's Bio

Im a climber, a climber that just goes out and has fun. I started climbing when I was 13, and then started leading trad at the age of 15. From then on I have been hooked. Im not into anything as much as Im into climbing and cycling, though I do snowboard, as well as ice climb, sport climb, and backpack. But my main love is trad climbing and the adventure it brings. I love the fact that I leave no trace when I trad climb. It also brings me, and will bring me, to the most beautiful places on earth.

Great utility pant or climbing pant. These things will last forever (maybe) and are super comfy. They are a little stiff to begin with but they loose up a bit. What makes these more comfortable than other canvas pants like these is the gusset, it gives yoiu want more room to move your legs, very good idea.

Great pant, but havent had them for a super long time so we'll see how they hold up.

cheers.

These pants cant be beat. Super durable for how light they are and have a very soft feel. For people that get rashes or itch from the zippers on zip off pants these are the pants for you. They are soft in the knees because there is no zippers. But if you do need to shorten them, simply roll up the pant leg and use the draw sting to keep them up.

Bottom line, A great hiking pant. MHW does it again. and will keep making great gear.

I bought this thinking it was thicker, therefore I had to return it becuase I just didnt have enough money to buy another thicker jacket.

But when I did have it, the jacket was amazing. The hood had a nice cut and fit my head well. it doesn't even feel like you have anything on.

For a mid layer this thing would be incredible but the durablity for being your outside layer I question. But thats with a lot of down coats.

All in all I want this thing back. and over just a t shirt it kept me super warm out side in sub 30 degree weather, but i wasnt outside for super long.

I love this pad and have slept well in the back country ever sense i have gotten it. I can't sleep on my back so I slept crappy on my zlite but once and I got this I was sleeping well. It packs down way smaller than any thermarest and is way more comfortable. I only have one complaint and it is that it sucks to fill up because you use so much air, especially at high elevation. But if the stuff sack turned into a pump, much like the OR mats do, that would put this pad to 5 stars.

I love this shell. It breaths very well and is 100% water and wind proof. I used this for the last two weeks back packing and hiking and not once did it let me down. The pit zips are great for venting and for even more venting you can open the side pockets that are mesh in the inside to let air in. The one complaint is that I wish it had a tighter mid section but I think if I would have went with the medium instead of large that would have fixed that problem. Im 160 and 5' 10" and with a Tshirt under it the shell is a little baggy but with a fleece it is just right.

These are the second pair of evolve shoes that I have boughten and the brand in general is great.

This shoe edges super well and super stiff, and fits and forms to your foot great. Though not great at smearing, what performance velcro shoe is?

Over all and great shoe and if you want a great edging shoe, get this one.

I love this pack. It has room to get all my trad gear in it plus more. This pack does it all and is built like a tank.

The top lid has two pockets, one small and one a bit bigger. It also has a camel back pocket and a rope strap.

If you want to go light and fast cinch it up and remove the back support as well as the hip strap and replace the thicker, padded strap with a thin webbing stap that is included.

This pack is highly recommended.

Cheers.
