After taking my gloves off and letting my hands get pretty damn cold in -20 wind chill with blowing snow on the summit of mt washington these mitts warmed my hands up in minutes and before I knew it I was taking them off and going back into my other gloves. The hugeness makes them a bit hard to use an ice axe but that's pretty much expected with mitts like this.

Worked great over top of the mid-layers in white out conditions on the summit of Mt Washington. The full length side zippers are great for ventilation when you need it and the material is strong enough to not worry about ripping it if you snag your ice tool or glissade down. It's pretty quiet too which is a plus. Gore-tex could be a little more breathable though.

I've had this camera for about a year now, and I love it. Used it on everything dirt bikes, cars, climbing helmets skiing helmets etc. It's taken a bunch of hard hits with no problems it shoots great vid and has lots of cool options to shoot stills too.

Love the jacket so far. Stood around outside in 19 degree wind chill with no base layer or mid layer and was fairly warm it'd have been acceptable if I was moving. it fits similarly to the patagonia nanopuff the XL nano puff fits fine over the xl stoic. defiantly recommend the jacket the complete lack of stitching is pretty bad ass too.

I'll let everyone know how it preforms ice climbing and skiing.

Just the right size to hold a few extra layers and some day hike essentials in the colder weather, or a weekend pack for the fast and light people around. Room for a hammock, pot, pocket rocket, fuel and a bit of food.

Love the way the extra strap secures to the pack for the hip and shoulder belt. The sunglass pocket and misclaeous rear pocket is awesome. External pocket is big enough for a bicycle helmet or other similarly sized item, and 2 water bottle / trekking pole pockets.

Everything cinches down nice and tight when the space isn't needed. NVIS back panel keeps your back nice and dry overall love it.

Only complaint the color choices, I really wish they'd have kept making earth tones like coyote brown and olive drab options. I hate bright colored outdoor gear.
