Brandon's Bio

I am into hiking, and playing with the dog in the snow, Back pack and car camping. I Have kayaked for several years, surfed for a few, and a few snow shoeing incidents. I Have recently gotten into climbing, mainly bouldering, but dabbling in top roping. My Favorite pieces of gear are jackets.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Got this several months ago specifically for to and from the gym for climbing and quick and light day hikes. The daisy chains outside are great and strong, attaching shoes and chalk when rest of bag is full. would like a water bottle pocket on outside on one side. I like the low profile and narrowness so doesn't rub my arms. Shoulder straps are soft and comfortable. Have recommended it to others looking for day hike packs and climbing packs.

Needed work shoes that weren't sneakers that would be warmer and more versatile. Looked around for a while and took a chance getting these online Got my usual size and though are a tad bigger than expected, they are easy to sip on and off but don't feel loose. Would suggest and buy again.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

Just got these the other day and used them today for first time. I got the same size as my La Sportiva Tarantulace and these are more than aggressive and are tighter in the toes. I expect them to stretch a little, but will take getting used to. I found that if you rotate foot inward once you have them on they settle in better. Overall much tighter than used to, but think it is just the growing pains of new and different style shoes.

This is a great layer fleece. Soft and warm, it does fit tight but I think true to size due to its purpose. I really like the thumb holes which when it gets colder will be very nice. It is stylish, and has a tighter fit around waist than other fleece pull overs I have had which i don't dislike just wasn't expecting, helps hold out the draft of cold air, but moving around would have to pull it down again. so if you like a looser fit but still good base or first mid layer maybe size up.

I got this in the Triad stripe, navy and other than getting several comments about Freddie Kruger it is very stylish. Fits true to size and is warm and soft. can wear a long sleeve or short sleeve underneath without worrying about itching or being uncomfortable. Would def buy again, in a different color.

Got these for myself as a guy and for my girlfriend. Little tight for me, but without a liner no problems and are pretty warm. Look classy but can use them in in the woods as well. would buy again, hasn't collected dog hair as much as other fleece gloves.

With a slim fit it is nice and comfortable. I have a similar beanie that is a little looser and this one fits tighter and is thus warmer. This will be one my staples this winter.

I have used this several times as a layering fleece on colder days and nights and slept in it when really cold out camping, Soft comfortable and no pockets to get in way as layering or sleeping in. Has not pilled like a few other fleece jackets. Got it as a gift, but would get again.

New to climbing consistently this has been really nice to have and a good suggestion from a friend. Several blisters, and torn up hands appreciate this after every climb. Hands have stayed respectable and still recognizable as hands. important quality

Just got this for a new england fall, and it has been 90+ degrees so i have not put it through the ringer yet, but can't wait to. Trying it on quickly the neck is high, but will appreciate when it is windy and cold. Otherwise I got a XS which seems to go true to size for me. So far would recommend. Will update if life changes.
