My cupboards are stocked with these bottles in all 3 sizes. I use them for every type of drink there is and they never retain a smell or stain after washing. The cap seals very nicely and I have never had a leak. The cap will sometimes have some liquid in the threads or the top of the cap when you unscrew and it may cause a tiny spill but it really is no big deal. These bottles are bullet proof but unfortunately they slide down an icy slope very fast, so keep it tied down if it is on your pack.

I love the feel of these pants. The stretchy material is perfect for any type of cool to cold activity from late fall to early spring. I don't wear these for skiing but wear them for mountaineering and cold weather hiking and snowshoeing. A waterproof shell glides on and off over these because they are slick. The Screes are not windproof but deflect some wind and breathe great. But back to the stretchy material, it is incredible the amount of unbinding and uninhibited movement you have when wearing the Screes.

I am going on my second pair of these shoes. I run on loose dirt, rocky, desert trails and the XA pros hold up perfect for me. The tread is very aggressive and corners very nicely going up switchbacks, and performs great coming back down at full speed. The forefoot is on the thinner side and not very stiff so small pointy rocks can be felt. The heel is well cushioned and stabilizes well. All my shoes are a size 10 and these are true to size at 10.

These gloves are the best all-around gloves I have ever had. They are waterproof, breathable, and just enough insulation to keep your nose pickers from getting cold. The Villains are not just for skiing or boarding but they are great to use while mountaineering. They grip an ice axe well and have plenty of mobility to grab onto rocks or anything else you need. These are very tough gloves with the full leather palm and the heavy material on the back. The Velcro closure and neoprene cuff add for a snug fit around the wrist but the cuff doesn’t extend very far. Inside the glove is a light fleece so hands slip in and out with ease. Sizing chart is NOT accurate, I have an 8.5 inch hand (yes, measured correctly) and an XL is snug.

I have been wearing Merino wool for a few years now and I will never go back to a polyester base layer. Smartwool is highest in quality and you can feel confidant you are wearing one of the best. I wear mine a bit snug because I like it to absorb the sweat. Read the instructions when washing and you won’t go wrong, there will not be any shrinkage.

This being my first modern harness, (I have had a BD simple nylon webbing harness for 15 years using it to rappel off cliffs and buildings) I was happy with how comfortable it was. I have a 34 waist and a medium fit well, even over cold weather layers, and with room to shrink or grow. I am not planning on climbing a lot so I didn’t want to spend a lot on climbing gear but I did want quality. I compared this to the BD Momentum and decided on the Mammut Mirage because it has a curved plastic piece where you tie in, just seemed like better quality for the same price.

These are my first climbing shoes. They are made with simple but quality construction and I don’t see them falling apart anytime soon. I normally wear a size 10 average width in all my shoes from mountaineering to runners and a size 10 in these are tight fitting at the toes but they fit well. The Royales being my first climbers, I was told they fit perfect because they are not supposed to be “comfortable”. I have used them on an indoor climbing wall and on a 5.6 climb at Red Rock and I was happy how well they worked for me. I am a beginner so I didn’t want to spend a lot on shoes so these were it. These are inexpensive but not by any means cheap.
And NO they won't turn your feet blue.

I am at 5'11", 185lbs, and a 44" chest, and I find the large is tight under the armpits and around the shoulder blades. I think it's going to be a bit annoying during a full day of wearing this shirt. I really like the quality and would classify it as "very lightweight". I would have to say the sizing chart is meant to be for a tight, close to the skin fit. Great fitting cut if you don't have broad shoulders.

I got this about 2 months ago and have used it several times camping and once in the attic doing some wiring. It is so smal, lightweight, very durable, and provides an enormous amount of light, the non-blinding kind of light. If you don't have one of these then you are living in the dark ages or at least living in the days when your head gets sqeezed by your headlamp strap while reading.

When I first got this shell I was a little skeptical on the durability because it is very thin fabric. I am used to shells with a much heavier denier so I was a little leery about folding this up and sticking it in a pack. My first trip out calmed all my worries and insecurities about the Exum! Climbing through bushes and over boulders it took many rubs and pokes by branches. The Exum feels and weighs like a featherlite, but it stands up well from medium to harsh wind, rain, hail, and the ground elements, like it was a piece or WoW epic gear. With just a thin insulator underneath the fit was perfect for me. Because the Exum is so lightweight, your mobility is unbelievably unhindered; it even feels like you’re not wearing a shell. The hood can be adjusted a few different ways to fit your grape, even with a helmet, so you have no problems seeing in any direction. I really don’t have any cons with the Exum, I feel confident about balling it up and sticking it in a pack if necessary, but I wouldn’t want to wrinkle it because I respect the Exum so much now.

I know the really cool Mountaineers don't use these because they are for the geeky mountaineers, so hey, I guess I’m a geek. Why wouldn't you use this? Gear is expensive and tears in gear suck. You are probably saying, "I've been mountaineering for years and I have never needed one". Well then the odds of you snagging yourself or tearing you gear is closer to reality. Actually a veteran mountaineer I met, saw mine and said, "Whoa, that's cool".
Works on my Raven Pro.

My New Old Friend
5 5

We've only known each other a short time, but we will be friends for the rest of our lives. Being my first ice axe, the Raven Pro and I got along real well. When you carry something which you rely on to be a major factor in possibly saving your life at an unexpected time, you must have confidence in it. The Raven Pro fit very well in my hand, the weight was balanced perfectly, the materials strong, and of course Black Diamonds trustworthiness all played a factor in why this is a great tool. After a day of mountaineering it now holds a few indelible scars which will be associated with the first of many MAJOR outdoor accomplishments in my life. So grab this ice axe and head for the summit.
