Greg Gavin's Bio

What drives me to be so active outdoors is the never ending pursuit to find my own limits. Many times I have set out on a journey to find my limits, and have repeatedly surpassed them without realizing it. Never second guess yourself, and never stop pushing the envelope!

These shoes are great trail runners. They have a thin rock plate to help spread out point specific pressure, and foot fatigue. They're fairly supportive, and super comfy for longer runs. My only gripe is the rubber can be a little slippery on wet rock, but o well. Other than that I love them!

Just got these binoculars, and love them. A nice compact package/storage allows for secure dirt free storage in my backpack. While the high quality high contrast glass allows me to do less squinting, and more studying of the subject matter I'm looking at.

Highly Recommended!

Stiff platform with a goretex membrane makes these boots mountain crushers. I wish they had a slightly softer heel cup so the break in time wasn't so long (I have roughly 25 miles in mine). Definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a mountain boot that can take a pair of strap on crampons.

What makes these babies so great, huh? Well let me spill the beans to this mystery of the world.

They're light, but not so light you think you're wearing full blown running shorts.

The waist band is 100% the most comfortable waist band of any short I've owned.

They're light, and pack super small for backpacking missions.

They're short, but not crazy short. Keeps ya cool in the summer heat!

A bunch of different colors to match your style.

The cotton on this shirt is a heavier weight type, and as such gives a great feel of quality. This shirt is definitely something I'd recommend. I have the Magma color, and it's pretty much as bright as it looks on here. Maybe just a little less so at the most.

Love this thing! Really... Super comfy, super well built, super spacious gear loops, and super safe. Metolius over builds every aspect of the harness to full strength specs with the exception of the rear bungee leg loops (I think) to 22KN. So you can accidentally clip your gear loop, and live to tell the tale! Seriously they do a great job, and this sucker is made in the good old U-S-A! Quality craftsmanship goes into everything Metolius makes, and it's apparent with this harness. Doubt I'll ever buy anything else for sport/trad climbing.

The twin belay loops work pretty well, and for the majority of my climbing I use them in unison. Used as such they're the same thickness of a normal BD belay loop so it's all the same to me as a user. However when rigging rappels or aid climbing they come in super handy. Having your rap set up on one side, and your personal on the other gives you a little extra play and flexibility in your set up/break down time when rapping long routes.

One caveat is that this thing doesn't have any ice clipper slots on the sides which is a huge bummer. I ice climb in the winter, and really need those. So my back up harness is a BD I've had for a few years, and only break out in the winter.

Regardless of this one small thing I would recommend this harness to anyone for any reason having to do with climbing.

I own a size Medium, and have a 32" waist with large skier thighs. She fits like a dream!

Epic Drom Bag Pose

Here I am in southern Utah enjoying a swig from my bag! I use the 4L year round for hiking, skiing, climbing, and camping. It's the only one I own, and the thing is TOUGH! Highly recommended for people who like compact, lightweight stuff!
