Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These would be great for lounging or yoga as has been said. Other than that, they really arent anything spectacular. Im 6'2" 200lbs and the large was pretty big. Medium would have been perfect.

This is a great baselayer system, super comfortable and highly functional. Im 6'2" 200 lbs and the medium is a good fit. maybe a hair small on the arms. Even on the coldest days im suprised at how well this keeps me warm. The only negative side is the absence of a butt flap, or something like it. But, I figure it is a small price to pay for the functionality of the garment.

I own two of these shirts and use them everyday during the fall/winter/spring months. They do a great job of whicking moisture off the body keeping you dry and warm while you perform. I use them primarily of running/xc skiing/resort riding and I have only ever been happy with them. I am 6'2" 200 lbs and the large is a perfect fit.

I really like this glove, built super well and crazy durable. However, they seem to be a bit chilly when the weather hits 10's or lower. Size up and get a liner and I bet theyll perform better.

great minimal shoe
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i bought these to replace my five fingers for winter runs. I have been practicing barefoot form for a couple years now and these shoes are perfect for complementing that. My feet were warm and they worked great for why I had purchased them. I enjoyed the feel enough to the extent that I began to take them up mountains as the snow receded, but after a few times of doing that i completely blew out the seems on a decent through some talis and scree. For just a minimal running shoe, they are great. Lightweight, and the sole really is tougher than youd think. I removed the insoles that came with the shoes and wore them to work. Something kept itching the bottom of the ball of my foot, and i came to find out that i had stepped on a poster tac, yet it had not penetrated the sole!

great shoe, worth the price.

best pack ive ever owned
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

with this pack, its hard to even know where to begin in praising it. It is such a simple pack, yet as I have used it more and more over the years, I find new things that make it interesting and even more resourceful. I love the removable top pocket and have actually used it much more than I ever thought I would. Added clips on the frame make it compress after you unload some at base camp and set out for more. trek pole holders, axe loops, breathable back piece, and molded hip straps make it feel as if you arent even wearing everything. I hate going on an overnighter knowing that I ought not to take it as it is more designed for extended trips, I just dont enjoy being out without it. Even the little things like the two water bottle holders on the sides and the whistle on the chest clip are the small ammenities that make this bag wonderful. Not to mention how durable it is. Mine fell down a snowfield and came out alive and unscathed. If trying to decide on a bag, dont forget ospreys all mighty guarantee.

Alpinists must

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I received this in the mail and the next day took it up full exum of the grand teton. Having never used it before at all, I was going into the situation completely blank slate, crossing my fingers that it wold hold its own. About 8 or 9 pitches up, we faced wind hitting 40 or more mph. A couple more pitches, being 400 feet from the summit, we were surrounded by a lightning storm and snowed out, which eventually turned into a light rain on the rap down. I didnt think too much about the elements because of how well the android worked. I am 6"2', 200 lbs, and the large is a perfect fit with a little room to layer with (which makes it perfect for cold conditions even though it has a bit of insulation). I have since been through similar situations and have only been impressed.

great soft shell. for the peaks and running around town.

This draw is straight up simple and tough. I bought 10 of them and have been so impressed that for sport climbing, I dont really care about getting other draws or replacing them. The wire gate does shed the grams which make you lighter on the crag and somewhat smoother to clip the rope through, while the solid gate gives you the durability you want when clipping a bolt. You get more than you pay for with these draws.

Strong, simple, durable.

best all around

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used my blue water lightning pro in every condition on so many types of rock, and i must say that it is a solid rope that can take abuse and hold up without any doubts. The stretch is great and tends to lean towards a soft catch. I used a lightning pro when I was learning how to lead, and I have continued to use a lightning pro while testing my abilities on more difficult sport/big wall/trad climbs as well. I have friends that own the exact same rope with the same opinions.

A really good all around rope that is durable and lasts.

At 6'2", 200 lbs, the large fit me really well and has become the best harness I have ever owned. Whenever I have peeled off or taken a whipper, I havent noticed any unusual discomfort. It is somewhat pricey, but is designed very well and is super tough despite it looking and feeling rather thin and minimal.It works great for me and I would definitely recommend it. I didnt go 5 stars because of the fact that the leg loops and straps are unadjustable, but for me thats a small price to pay for how much i love the rest of it.
