Hi, Im looking at doing winter mountaineering and ice climbing in New England. I really like the versatility of these boots, but i am wondering if they will be warm enough. The coldest thing i will be doing are overnights in the Presidentials. Thoughts....

Is it recommended to go with a bag that has a zipper to match your dominant hand? I would imagine if I'm right handed it would be easier to use a zipper that is on the left. I have never purchased a bag nice enough that had the option before. What does everyone think?

I bought these as my first quick draws, and they work great. I don't think weight matters enough considering you can get these for $9 when they go on sale. I think they clip loud and great. I have never had a problem with the key lock on the wire gate getting stuck on anything. So to me, these are the best bang for you buck on the market.

Planning on building a small bouldering wall in my basement this summer. Trying to decide how big i want the wall and which pack of holds i should buy. What is a good number for holds per square foot? I was thinking about 1 hold per sq ft. So thats would be a 30 pack per sheet of ply wood. Is this accurate? What do you guys think?

In the description table on the left it says that this rope has a center mark. Just got one, and there's a problem. No center mark. Did this rope individually not get marked, or is the description wrong? What can i do to either get another rope, or to have Backcountry fix the description?

Black Diamond did great with this one. As an upgrade of the Momentum AL, The SA (speed adjust) Is fantastic.
I have never had any trouble trusting a speed adjust system, and i won't after owning this harness. It is easy to use with one hand and the rest is the same as the AL. All the and effort time saved is definitely worth the extra $5 for the upgrade from the AL.

This shoe was great, I've just gotten into rock climbing but am excelling quickly. This shoe can handle a lot. It stretched ALOT, Like 1 1/2 sizes. But if you buy big then there shouldn't be a problem. My shoe did have a problem with it early on, but it was a manufacturing mistake with that shoe individually. am in the process of sending it back now. Don't know how ill have to wait for it to get back to climb.

First off all i have to say is that for $40 this is an okay deal. Its super light, and works great for really cold weather camping. You can put it under a main pad to give you more of boost up from the ground. But its not that comfortable, only has a R-Factor of 2.2 and is big compared to some of the pads that are now out. In the end for the price I think its a good product.
