Brad Mullins's Bio

Love alpine climbing, trail running, mtn biking, backpacking...pretty much anything that keeps me out of town. I love everything about the mountains and spend all the time that I can in them.

I can't say enough good things about this jacket. I use it for everything! Shoulder season rock climbing, winter runs in the northern midwest, nordic skiing, casual spring/fall wear, anything that I can throw at it, it handles with style and ease. It stops even whipping mountain winds with ease, yet breathes amazingly well. The only thing that I would change would be to add a chest pocket to be able to hold something, but that's it. Other than that, this jacket is perfect. I give it a 5/5 hands down!

This helmet is super lightweight and adjusts great to fit over a hat, or just your head. Its so light that you forget its even there until tiny little chunks of ice tink off of it. I use this for ice climbing and trad climbing, and the comfort is amazing. Luckily I've never taken a rock to the head, so I can't really comment on the protection properties, but I've always been a believer that a helmet is really just an insurance policy that makes your loved ones feel better, and if you can forget that you are even wearing it, that is a success for me. I give it a 5/5!

This jacket is amazing. Its super warm , it packs down small yet fluffs back up quickly, and its get just enough waterproofing to make it so that you don't have to worry when the snow or even sleet starts to fall. I use this jacket for belay duty while ice climbing, and its awesome for after you've made camp for the night on a peak. I even use this to sleep in on alpine climbs so that I can afford to bring a lighter sleeping bag. The hood is also amazing almost beyond description. With all of that said, the only downside to this jacket is that the down has a tendency to migrate a bit. It tends to move to the top of the arms, or to the sides of the jacket if you are sitting down. Its not super bad though, and I've never gotten cold because of it. Overall, I give it 5/5 stars!

I've tried a lot of different climbing shoes, and these take the cake hands down. I've had these shoes for about 9 months. They wear really well, and climb super hard. I use them from everything from tough trad, to steep sport, and nasty boulder problems. I've never felt like these shoes have let me down. Size them small, they stretch a bit, and they're pretty comfy even when they're tight. Overall, 5/5.

These gloves are my go to for everything. I'm a ski patroller, and spend about 60 days patrolling per season, and usually another 30 tele skiing every year. I also ice climb and do a lot of mountaineering. These gloves do it all, and do it well. They are super bomber. I've thrown everything that you can think of at these gloves, with minimal maintenance, and I can't wear them out. Overall, great glove!
