I climb waterfall ice in the Catskills, and these gloves were great when the temps were in the teens. The wool insert takes some breaking in, but inspire confidence and chase away the barfies. They are not the most dextrous gloves, but belay well and when the weather is cold, they can do it all. I'm glad I got them, the red color is way bright though!

I've got a lot of use out these durable and comfortable approach shoes. They look smart and have good rubber, and they're definitely all day shoes. Now - I guess 'smedge' is a combination of smear and edge, and I would say they have no feel through the thick soles for smearing and with their fat rubber soles not at all incut under the base of your foot - they really edge poorly. I climb a lot at the Gunks and these will help you hit the 5.5s, but a tricky 5.7 might just hose you down! All in all though, they've definitely got their place and unlike my other approach shoes, they are built to last.
