I love the comfort of these sandals. They're great beach sandals, and definitely form to your feet. The only thing I don't like about them is that the rubber footbed makes my feet sweat pretty bad in them, causing a less than pleasant smell when wearing them in hot weather. But I guess you find that with most sandals.

I just started climbing and don't know a ton about the gear, but this has all you need to get started. The harness is super comfortable and simple and you can't beat the deal. I took a good fall lead climbing with the harness and didn't experience any discomfort. It's nice with the adjustable harness, because it can be used when you have multiple layers of clothing on (for example, if you want to use it for ice climbing). Everything else is pretty basic and works well, but I'm very satisfied with the quality of Black Diamond.

I used the filter this last weekend as a backup water supplier. Unfortunately, our GPS unit failed and we got lost in Southern Utah. This filter saved us. We were in a little slot canyon in Escalante and got a little nervous when our water ran out. The only water we could find was in cesspools that wreaked and were covered in a nasty little film and filled with bugs. Of course, the water didn't taste great, but none of us ended up getting sick. I was very pleased with it. Plus, the Nalgene attachment is kinda cool and convenient. It pumps water pretty efficiently as long as you clean it after every use. Oh, and it's way simple to clean. I couldn't have asked for more.

I just got back from a trip down to Neon Canyon in Escalante, UT. We had studied topo maps on the internet and were all set to go. Unfortunately, we didn't save all the information right on the GPS, so the coordinates were lost. But to make a long story short, this unit probably saved our lives. We went about 9 miles out and realized we had taken the wrong canyon. It took a while to find 3 satellites to bounce off of, but that's true with all GPS units. I would highly recommend this over some of the less-expensive models. I just got a different model for my dad for Father’s Day. The color screen is great and it has more battery life. It also seems to be more accurate. I would strongly recommend buying the topo maps to go with it.

I just got back from a canyoneering trip down in southern Utah. The bag was a little uncomfortable at first and I wasn't sure whether I liked it. But as I broke it in a little, it was super comfortable. I did a lot of swimming and had no moisture get in (except for a little condensation). I tossed the bag around quite a bit, and it held up really well. I couldn't expect any more for such a competitive price.

Unfortunately, it took me a long time to find these shoes. But they are way comfortable for climbing shoes. I got them a 1/2 size small, and would probably have gotten them a full size small if I had known they would stretch this much. But they are a great sport climbing shoe. I started climbing not too long ago, and they seem to work really well for a beginner to intermediate shoe. But I also have very experienced friends who still climb in them.

The Phantom is way compactable and warm. I spent a couple weeks in Alaska with it and it was plenty of insulation, but I also love it in warmer weather in Utah. Great versatility. The only problem I have with it is the 3/4 zip. It makes the bag a little annoying to get in and out. Other than that, it's a great bag.

I love the traction on the Terreno sole, especially for hiking. However, if you’re not doing a lot of wear and tear on them, I would suggest the Colorado sole. The soles are just a little too thick and heavy for everyday use for me. But they awesome on the trail. I actually found that they ran a half size small for me, which is odd compared to what other people experienced.
