Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this biner primarily to use for my belay device. However, I've used for all sorts of things, and have learned that its light weight and spacious opening make it great for other things like bolting, rigging and multipitch climbing. It has a very high-quality feel, with smooth action in all moving parts. Plus, like the others said, it looks cool.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am allergic to backpacks with too many "useful straps and pockets" because I find that, most of the time, they just get in the way, and add unnecessary weight and more components that potentially will break. With that said, this backpack has all I want and need in a day-use sport climbing back pack. I can comfortably pack a rope (in the integrated rope bag), Chalkbag (also packed in the integrated pouch that neatly clips to the inside of the bag and keeps the rest of your stuff free from chalk), 15 quickdraws and belay device attached to the gear loop in the back, a pair of climbing shoes, harness, water bottle, jacket and other small accessories I find useful. To create more space in the pack, I just take out the rope, and attach it to the strap on the top lid or in a separate rope-bag. Now, if I would go trad climbing or do anything similar that requires more gear, clothes, food, accessories etc..., I would go with a different bag. But for me, for everyday use, back and fourth to the Sport-climbing crag, I find this perfect . It has a bunch of useful features, but really has no extra crap that gets in the way.

I have basically used this jacket/sweater daily for the past month and I absolutely love it. If you are looking for a jacket to use for "everyday purpose", a chilly day at the crag or the boulder-field or just a really good looking hoodie you will be as psyched with this product as I am. Like everything else, its obviously not suited for all uses. The quirks with it is packing volume and weight but on days when that's important for me I just choose a different jacket. Although, I will most definitely look forward until I'll use it again!

Pros - Super comfortable, Really warm!, Nice pockets, Well fitting hood that really does its job, good looking.

Cons - Packing volume, Weight

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do!
