I give these two stars based on the fact that they dry fast and are SEMI durable. I m pretty bummed i spent 60 dollars on "climbing shorts" that should be listed under swim suit in the prana category from now on. The buckle on them broke after one tighten so if you do end up buying these POS's be careful with the buckle. Prana let me down on this one ! Guess I ll have to go back to the norm of NORTH FACE

No complaints on this bike. Its a killer deal and a really solid piece of Steel. The frame is a bit heavy. If you are going to ride it fixed tighten the lock ring and put some lock tight on if you are having any more trouble.

These shoes have been upgraded from the last years in three areas. The strap is reinforced and stronger. The rubber is thicker in the toe for the new guys so they don't scrape the hell out of it within two weeks. All around beefier shoe. Size down a half size if you are experienced and close to true to size if you are on V1 status !

Great starter set , has enough t nuts and bolts to get you started. The set however is not a beginner hold set. Most of the holds are advanced. We have an overhung wall with these holds and a lot of the problems are pretty hard because most of these holds are crimpers. The bucket and chalk bag are nice to go with the wall. All and all satisfied , wish there was some more cool holds.

I have been skating for well too long. Anyway the best way to make vans last longer than your third week is to pre glue all of the seems. So where your board is going to hit the seems put a dab of super glue on there. Not enough to throw your board out of wack but enough to hold the seems tight. Also always be sure to put a little extra glue where the rubber meets the leather.

This tent was extremely easy to set up the first time. No need for instructions on this one. It is very convenient with only two poles and external pole mounting system. The only complaint is that no tents are sold with a footprint. But not too worried I just was able to customize my own footprint from an old lightweight tarp. I wish I would have kept the rainfly or some of the material from my old tent because that would be great for a foot print. All in all great tent.

This was a great relief from top ramen and granola. We had this the first night and had the mac and cheese the second. This is a lot better I would say. Also If you have a way to measure your water make sure to do that. It is a lot easier to make this in the pan than in the bag like they recommend.

This pack is great. It is very convenient to use and very comfortable. It does not have any features that are too much and it meets all the requirements for a great pack. I have only used it so far on a two nighter but I know this will have no problem with a 3-4 nighter. The front access pocket is very convenient as well as the pocket on the top. This gives you a lot of options for things to put in a quick access spot. It splits in the middle which is always a plus making it so much easier to get things in the bottom of your pack.

This pad gets the job done ! The padding is great for bouldering and folds up if you need to fit it through a tight spot. It has three straps when it is folded up and closed so that your gear is not going to fall out of the bottom. Also the fabric is not going to tear while rubbing against granite during your approach and trees pretty much move out of the way when this pad is on your back. I like it so much I'm buying another one.

This helmet it the best I have ever had or tried on for that matter. The first thing i love is the audio system that is set up in it. It has a rad adjustable volume and you can also turn everything on or off with this little controller. The second and best thing is the lightness, I cant even tell that i am wearing it when I am riding. The third and final thing is that this helmet protects your head. I hit my head so hard on a tree yesterday that it dented the helmet, saved me from a concussion and everything on it still works great. I love this helmet. I wear it with a small beanie underneath otherwise it would be a little too cold.
