ok great thanks so much!
My name is Andrew! My main sport/hobby is rock climbing but i also kayak, hike, backpack, camp, fish, hunt, you name it! Im your average avid outdoors man!
ok great thanks so much!
Does this backpack have a tuck-a-way storage for the hip belts?
Thinking about getting these! yay or nay?
I was just looking at the Arrowheads and well end up likely getting those!
I love these things! I have several of them! I use them for just about everything from rock climbing to kayaking to a pulley system to just about anything! They are bombproof, sturdy as can be! i have the screw lock and havent had a problem with the screw getting gunked up or sticky or anything! Love em!
Well first off these are the cheapest draws i could find! I got the 17cm one to use as a draw to extend over over hangs, as a directional, and just to prevent rope drag in some spots! For a couple dollars more you could get some other draws with a little bit more postive quality but that depends on your wallet! All in all great draw a little bulky but fine! Cheap!!
I love this biner, the design was a great idea to prevent cross loading! I think its a little pricey though because i use to use a screw gate that only cost me about 9$ and even though the gate is extending into the bottom loop of the carabiner to prevent cross loading i don't think that alone was worth another 11$, but at least once you get this one your guaranteed safety and a better belay setup!
I have a pair of the tarantulaces and i have tried 5.10 shoes as well and found that the 5.10's have much better grip compared to the taratulaces. So im wondering if these are close to the same as the tarantulaces or have better grip.
These shoes are super combfortable doesnt hurt at all to walk around in them!, they stretch about a 1/2 a size due to them being made of leather, i found that the rubber isnt as sticky as some of the five ten shoes such as the projects or even some of the evolvs, the rubber is starting to detioriate pretty quickly and ive only had them for about 3 months and climb probably one or two times a week, good shoe, combortable, relativly cheap, great for beginners!
I got these when i fist started lead climbing, there a little stiff to open at first (especially the wire ones) but once borke in do just fine, after the first climb with them all the paint rubbed off and i could nearly see myself in the reflection of the draw, but that doest matter, i got mine on sale and they work great the could be a little bit lighter but definently bombproof!
