When is it going to be back again?
got a bit thrown off by its taste at first. it gets better with the second one but not my favorite for sure.
EDIT: I actually love it now. It grew on me. So from 3 stars to 5.
yummy and filling. can use it as a meal replacement when climbing all day long. real bits and pieces of dry fruits.
awesomely good with real blueberries in it.
love this rope, super thin, light, and durable (for its diameter). Have been using it at least once a week for some outdoor craging for the last 6 months, took a bunch of whippers on it, still good. I'd use a thicker one to dog though, 9.4 is quick thin and that'd be a waste. The sheath seems to be very durable
good hat with removable rain cover. the back is a bit longer which is a bit annoying when looking up while belaying... other than that pretty cool. Also you can adjust the size a bit and that's nice.
no complain... does what it's supposed to
she loves it. good sizing, awesome fit, keeps her warm and stretchy she can climb with. no complains at all, i might get another one since she wears this one so much it might wear out quicker than expected.
These pants are pretty good. I used them for work since they look formal enough and are quick comfy. The chocolate color will "stain" your legs at first and will only stop after a few wash. Sizing seems right on.
nice, warm, and comfy sleeping bag. tried it a couple of times when lows were 40ish. I was defintely warm if not too warm early evening. i'm 6'3" and the long is long enough for my height which is awesome. the center zip is cool but doesn't go all the way down so if your feet are too warm you can't really have them air out a bit although the zipper is bidirectional so you can air out a bit below waist level.
... an article on 8a.nu mentions a flaw of the device where the rope can slide outside the safety cam and become jammed on the side of the cam. It's not supposed to damage the rope or anything but still kinda weird.
Other than that little concern, it's pretty solid, feels secure to belay with. Not as easy to feed as the cinch though.
I like it way more than the first one because of its size, making it easier to belay with.
This sweater is pretty cool indeed. Great design, colors (black/blue), awesome hoody (big enough for me: 6'3" 180lbs and I got the medium), great fit, very warm and light!
The only problem I have with it is with regards to the sleeves: They're a bit narrow which make it a slightly difficult to remove the sweater without tearing apart the cuffs. But I understand that that design makes it warmer too, so I am ok with it. I don't think I would even mention it if I wouldn't use it for belaying: Put it on for belaying and take it off before climbing. So I had to do that a lot yesterday.
awesome. just like last year's model but bigger so had to size down. 6'3" and 180lbs: Medium fits perfect even with my long arms.
good stuff, always eat a couple of those chews between climbs if not more :) The pomegranate taste is not too strong so i don't get sick of it really.
by far better than grigri and atc. feeds super easy and w/o any effort at all. super light and small form factor. once used to it, it's easy to unlock as well, but yeah it does take a bit of time to get familiar with the device. same goes for lowering. keep your break hand on though, just like the grigri, the rope can go through it in some very rare cases.
I like to pack these into my pack when I go to a rocky crag so that I don't bang my toes on rocks. This is perfect for that. Plus the sole is thick enough to be comfy to hike a bit.
It does make my feet sweat easily though. But that's usually the case with all rubber base sole (like sanuk's... gotta wear socks with these).
These shorts are really nice: Very thin and light for summer climbing. Very stretchy and durable.
The only minus is the pockets are kinda shallow and drop my phone easily when I sit down. The wallet is fine but mainly because it's bigger so doesn't slide as easily I guess.
thicker than pantagonia borderless pants but doesn't feel warmer in hot conditions, good stretch, same pluses as the short which I really love.
it would have been nice to be able to fold the pant to make it a capri or something.
