I've been using these boots for one season now. What I like about them: They are relatively light, flex nicely for skinning, are Dynafit compatible, bright in color (in case of avalanche), and offer a good amount of warmth for anything above 10 deg C. Things I am not too keen on: For my preference, they are a little too flexy. They tend to slip slightly on the heel when going up hill. Would I buy them again? Touring boots have come a long ways in the last couple years and I think I would try something new that is more rigid and better able to keep my heel in place like the Black Diamond Boa system.

One of the most well thought out fleeces for technical use. Excellent wicking capability. The hood is great for keeping you warm as it fits suggly to your noggin and the zipper is asymmetrical so you don't feel it on your chin. The fleece is long enough so you can tuck it under your pants and not have a gap even when you have your hands above your head. Just know that this fits pretty tight. If you are looking for something loose, size up. No complaints from me. Thanks Patagonia.

Optimal Touring Glove
4 5

I've used these gloves over 30 days this year. In that time they have served me well. For me they are good for anywhere between 20-40 degrees. Any warmer and they come off. Any colder and they don't seem to cut it. If you are able to dry them out every night they will keep you dry every day. I have noticed that they've stretched out quite a bit and if I buy another pair will size down to accomodate for the stretching. Otherwise great glove.

I have had this shirt for about a year now and it is one of my go to's for either hitting the gym or going out in the sweltering hot sun. Although I like the MH belay shirt a little better for being more stretchy and feeling better to the touch, this T seems to have better wicking quality.

I've had these sunglasses for over 3 years now and have worn them for half of those days. I have a small face and small nose bridge and these fit great. I've smashed them flat and bent them back into shape, lost nose pieces and Smith will gladly send you replacements for free. They have excellent customer service. The only thing I can find wrong with these is that the plastic from the ear pieces is hard enough to wear a noticeable line into the inside of the lenses when the arms are closed. They are also excellent for touring as the lenses sit far enough away from your face to increase breathability and decrease fogging.

This is a great pack for many reasons. I bought it because it is very light yet also has a stiff back to keep structure to you and the bag. Also it has a nice opening where you can swing it around and open it away from you instead of towards you. It is very minimalist as it has 3 small pockets, the main compartment, camelbak pocket and 2 compressor chords on each side.

After debating on which tail light to buy, I chose the Mars 4.0. I see many lights out there but this one is by far one of the brightest. Lets just say if you had to you could attach it to the front in an emergency and it would provide enough light to creep home with at night. The only thing I'm not to keen on is that the light will slide out from the bracket however it tends to not lock in the best so I'm afraid I might lose the light. Pros is 20 hours on blinking mode, 2 on constant.
