Derek's Bio

I'm pretty much always thinking about climbing.

I scored this for super cheap on S&C and I'm so glad I did! I've only had it for a little over a week and it's been awesome. Super warm and super comfortable. I'm 6ft, 160 lbs with a fairly athletic build and long arms and the medium fits me perfectly. It may be shorter than some people like, but it works well for me.

The shirt design is cool, the material is soft, and the sleeves are even long enough for my monkey arms. Unfortunately when you wash/dry it, it shrinks to an awesome width, but also gets too short. (For me at least)

I'm 6'0 and 160lbs with a +3 reach, and it fits great in the midsection and has long enough arms, it's just too short.

I totally like this chalk pot more than any other. The fact that it compresses and frees up room in my pack is awesome. It holds plenty of chalk, has multiple guards against spilling, and has a nice pocket for stuff on top. Overall, it's awesome.

Warm, compresses nicely, and most of all--super comfortable! I usually hate mummy bags, but I can move around, bend, etc...without feeling restricted.

There are three minor things that would make this bag perfect: a draft tube/collar, shock cord in the hood instead of non-stretch cord, and a chest pocket.

I used this in combination with my 30 degree montbell bag in 20ish degree weather. Granted that's only 10 degrees, I stayed toasty the entire night! At one point I even have to put my feet outside of my bag because they were too hot. Even when my feet were outside the bag and still inside the liner, they still stayed warm for at least an hour before I had to put them back.

If you use this in combination with cold-weather camping techniques, it can add quite a bit of warmth to your bag. I highly recommend.

Maybe I have bad circulation or something, but every time I've used these gloves, my fingers have been FREEZING. Even if I start off with warm hands and use liner gloves, they still end up getting cold.

The fit was pretty good on my hands, snug, but not too bad. Just go by the measurements in the sizing chart.
