Back Country of Idaho
Spec Sheet that comes with tricams Backcountry has at least one of the ranges wrong ,#7, hopefully this clarifies.
They have a great hand. The golden dry is really nice for ice and alpine climbing ,doesn't get wet!! They are super light weight too. All around great rope for alpine and ice climbing.
I have never seen a Helium with a 9kn minor axis load "cross load" rating only 7kn and have seen 9kn only for open gate rating.
Has a truck load of features the quick adjust buckle style no "back weaving!" Two slots for the "hub" racking system same thing as a BD ice clipper, bring on the ice screws. The sliding waist belt makes it fit just right no matter how you adjust it which is a ton and a half times better than your waist belt being off center like the Mammut Vision. The no twist belay slot keeps your belay biner from flopping or twisting around not crucial but handy. Full strength Haul loop is handy also. This thing fits really well and was more comfortable than the BD primrose Mammut Vision and the Petzl Luna. She's a size 8 normally and not very hippy the small was perfect with the medium really couldn't get the waist to snug down enough and not raise to much when sitting in it. Uber padded as you can tell I am pretty jealous
Love the set and love the color, would be better if they offered the set 1-11 verse the 1-10 but I guess if you need an eleven you might as well use a cam in most situations or just by the 11 separate.
Really useful shape, very versatile, very strong for the size and weight as compared to other brands they are very tough too. I also really like the fact that they are made in wales. Kind of not important but it makes me happy I really like the colors
Pretty good but still prefer c4s. but if you need to shave some weight this is a great option.
Great price for this package. Cams are super great so if you are going to buy several might as well get this set and save some money.
Double axles equal great size ranges. easy to place easy to clean, bomber.
Not really, You can wrap them around the back, buckle it, and then tighten it down as much as possible. They will stay out of the way in that configuration if you considering hauling it up a rock face or for motorized travel.
Only ones I buy. I save so much money on the complete quick draw if I need a longer one I can buy just the dog bone and switch the beiners over and have a super light draw. I love these guys for any type of climbing plus they are so cheap for what you get.
Seriously great chalk.
Very versatile. I have never used it for anything other than a single rope in alpine, trad, and or hard multi pitch climbs. And it excelled at that do to its very low weight for a single rope and dry treatment. The only down side is the few falls its rated for.But the middle mark is very nice. I would consider using as a half rope but the impact force and weight are fairly high for that as compared to 8.1mm ropes. And twin I don't really see the use of that technique. But if I was on a tight budget I would buy two and have the versatility of all three styles but with only 2 ropes instead of 5 and the gear to conquer the world.
I got these because they fit well in the store and climbed pretty well but after they finished stretching out they really hurt my big toe 'my feet are weird shaped'. I also couldn't get them to tighten down enough with out the metal loop the strap goes through digging into the top of my foot. Maybe I was asking to much performance out of these guys for what they are intended for, not to aggressive. But they were really easy to get on and off. They would be good for people beginning and that don't have weird feet. The Scarpa Visions fit my feet really well and I can dial them better for the circumstances.
Really comfortable all around shoe. They do stretch a fair amount and take several days of climbing for them to stretch out to there maxim size. The laces are insanely long so I cut them down. You can really dial these guys down for performance. They aren't the best for bouldering but do work well. One thing is I have to be careful to place the tongue in the correct position 'amount of overlap' otherwise they will really destroy my second toe. But that toe kind sits on top of my others, its a weird toe.
They'll probably have to bury me in this jacket. I wear it for all my cool, wet, or frozen activities. It is more durable than it feels, softer than the Marmot Sharp Point jacket. I have rock and ice climbed in it, even squirmed my way up a chimney and no signs of tears or any wear.
Simple bivy has some features. It is roomy has space in the hood area for storage above you head. The 4 zipper pulls (that glow in the dark) on the opening give you venting options while keeping it fairly closed up. It also has a double flap over the opening for better weather resistance. It has 4 stake loops you can guy out with to keep it in place on exposed stormy faces, that may ruin your day if it got away. It seems to be on the heavier side for not having any poles but the weight includes the 4 DAC Stakes, small bag that the stakes go in, and the "big" bag that holds the bivy and the stakes. I weighed just the bivy and it came out to 1lb and 4oz. But it seems durable for a bivy and is absolutely water proof. You can also fold and roll it up really tight to be smaller than 11.5x4.5in.
I can get this thing on and dialed in a matter of 30 seconds. It is also very comfortable and has all the features needed in an all around harness. I have heard people say that the buckles are dangerous and will loosen over a prolonged climbing session, I have never had that happen and if so you should be checking the harness at the start of every pitch, and if they are loose just tighten it down. But like I said it has never loosened on me.
Super warm bag especially for how light it is. The cut is pretty narrow so I had to get used to it a bit. The zipper is also short ,pretty much half length, I don't find that problem either. It compresses super small. I would Buy again and again.
