Griffin's Bio

Griffins my name, photography, surfing, and climbings my game. Some folgers in my cup made from my jetboil looking over some perfect a-frame peaks or from the edge of a crag.

I'm wondering if this pack would be right for me. I want a pack with an alpine climbing capability along with daily cragging activities. I currently have a 50L Arcteryx Muira, and it works well but I want something lighter and with less capacity, but still pretty bombproof. I am also planning on using it for lightweight backpacking (multiday), and considering I'm a small guy who packs nearly nothing I have a feeling 30L is a good place for me. 50L is usually quite a bit of extra space.
I am currently trying to decide between this pack and the BD epic 35L. Any thoughts on the appropriate pack?

By far the most comfortable and practical approach shoe I have ever had. Sticky rubber, minimalist design, light, comfortable, and not to mention snazzy as all hell. I have worn mine every day for 3 months straight and they have been wearing great, although the TRAX rubber does wear down as expected. Also the green EVA foam tends to deteriorate near the heels if worn a lot. Whether your setting in the gym, hiking up some 4th class, or getting thrown out of bars, these babys perform nicely. I actually added Superfeet to mine to fix the foul odor from wearing barefooted. The Superfeet actually made them a bit stiffer for the occasional edge. Overall great shoe. Well done evolve.

This is a great day to day pocket knife if your looking for something a little larger than your average blade. Fast draw is super handy and makes it easy when only one hand is free. However, Gerber metal is Gerber metal and seems to dull quite easily which doesn't seem to bother me much, I simply resharpen. If you don't know how to sharpen a knife I suggest you learn because this knife will keep you busy. Also, after about 2 months of use the knife lost the majority of its rigidness and loosened up. Simply put, great knife for the value, if you want a top of the line knife go Benchmade, forget Gerber.

Gerber also makes a shorter version with a fine edge knife. Knife is great, but axe simply doesn't have enough weight on it to not wear your arms out. This is a great alternative, but make sure to aim when your swinging, the edge does not take kindly to rocks or gravel. The soft metal will dull fast from its initial sharpness. I've sharpened mine 3-4 times since I bought it in november. Great for a few nights in the woods!!
