Does this still have the pocket inside for the rope? I saw one the other day with no pocket...
Love this bag. Inexpensive and holds so much! Heading to Alaska and this 181cm bag has 177 cm skis, 2 pairs of big boots, stove, snow pickets, ice tools, cookset, nalgenes, crampons, and more. From the other reviews, I expect to have to put patch tape on holes from the airline, but thats pretty easy, and worth it to me to not spend a fortune on a bag.
I love this thing, tiny, light, hood cinch works well, zipper works well, good fit. This over a base layer and R1 is perfect for a cool day of XC skiing or other heavier activity. Slightly water resistant. Great for cutting the wind at the top of a cliff.
Downfall: The stuff pocket is too small. I sewed extra material onto the pocket to make it so I can stuff it more easily. Without the modification, it took a good minute to cram it in tight enough to zip closed. With a crude, hand-sewn mod and added zipper pull, it is way easier and quicker to pack away and start up the next pitch.
I am 6' and 160 lbs. I am usually in between a small and medium, but with this shirt the small is still too big. Otherwise, good quality, soft, and comfy.
Super fast to install, would take about 5 mins to swap to your friend's car. Universal mount fits on any bars. Fast and effective loading of your bike.
Complaints: Cable lock is pretty wimpy. Rear ratchet strap needs to be longer, I can barely fit it around my 2.2 tires, glad I dont need it to fit around fatties.

Whoops! Edit: I was answering for the Front Loader by Yakima
Scott, this bike rack mounted straight to my stock subaru rack (2002) and also fits my friends stock subaru rack (2005). Check out this video, super useful in seeing this thing in action before you buy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu8rHM90Rdw
Could be better. The nesting is great. Wish the insulator wrapped the whole bowl (nothing on the bottom), I made my own and threw this super thin one out. These would be better off with a screw on lid in my opinion. Prepare food, place it in the tent with a secure screwed on lid, put away cook equip, crawl into bag, eat, pass out.
Awesome shirts! I had the t-shirts and decided to go with these for long sleeves. The material is super thin and perfect for cool weather running and under other layers for mountaineering. Add a windshirt for a killer combo. Material is slippery, making it easy to put on and take off other layers. Favorite base layer material hands down.
Yea, My scale says 2.3 lbs
These things have very minimal obstruction of vision, fit great, and make for great mirror photo ops haha. Took them up some peaks in Bolivia and they rocked!
This seems like an awesome jacket, but I returned it because the hand warmer pockets did not have zippers. 1. you cant stash anything in them, and 2. I imagine in windy conditions that the wind would blow into them. I know its a small detail, but a dealbreaker for me with so many other good jackets out there to choose from.
I have been using green for a year now, love them and they fit great. I had a thought that perhaps it was a bit too high of an arch though, so I tried blue. I use F (11.5-13 M) and have a size 12 foot. I find the green to fit perfect, and the blue to be too narrow in the heel. As for the arch support, exactly as you would expect, just a bit shorter than green.
I like using them in horizontal cracks where weighting a cam would bend over the stem. Also lighter than cams. But yes they take longer to place than a cam. A couple of them are a good versatility addition rather than adding doubled-up cams.
These are great! As far as comfort, support, and breathability go they have exceeded my expectations. Keep in mind though that the legs do not stay down as pictured. They instantly move up and turn your boxer briefs into just briefs. As a result they are less "walk around in just underwear" friendly. I would like to see these have slightly longer legs, but not as long as the 6 in version.
I have both the 6 and the 3. The 3 inch do not ride up nearly as much as the 6 inch. But keep in mind that these 3 inch ones are very short and are essentially briefs since the little legs come up to crotch level in no time.
They seem pretty awesome. Nice material, stretchy, good range of motion, warm, sweet little pocket on the side, good fit to legs and waist. The deal-breaker for me was that the crotch had no extra material, its just a straight shot, so they are a little constricting there.
No fly, no opening at all. I am 6' with a 31 waist and went with the mediums. Decent fit down to the ankles.
These glasses fit my face very well and seal off all the light. The photochromatic aspect works well and was very handy to have. I might just suck at preventing fog, but I was certainly able to fog these things up when wearing a balaclava. The strap was necessary for me to wear all the time as they did not stay on my face that well without it, but thats probably due to my goofy face.
They are good, but I went with the Julbo Explorer glasses instead. The Nomads did not block light from coming in all the way around. Granted this could be due to a funny shaped face. With these you really just have to try out all the options to see what fits your goofy face the best.
