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.

Hey Phillip, I climb at great falls a pretty decent ammount. You should look into the PATC-MS we climb there allot to and would be a great group to link up with them to learn. http://www.potomacmountainclub.org/

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.

I think you should take some courses and read allot of books, start with mountaineering freedom of the hills and hang out with some experienced climbers. Just to make sure you know what you're doing. Belaying isn't difficult but getting it wrong is fatal.

All this being said, I'd start with an ATC so you can't be complacent when you use it.

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.
