Joseph's Bio

Its hard to be into outdoor climbing living in Orlando so I am often in the car driving 10+ hours to some place to climb or planning the next trip. Love the outdoors and do anything and everything from camping, to mountain biking, to scuba diving, but climbing being my all time favorite. I'm at about a v6 level on the boulders and 5.12 on a good day when you catch me in a harness. Not the strongest but I think it decent for living somewhere with only plastic, indoor rocks! I'm a relatively poor college student who spends a lot of his money on this site! I've even sold textbooks to buy gear!

Probably. Since they are comparable models within the same brand I'm sure the sizing is pretty close. If the 8.5 were too tight then yea definitely go up. Although finding a local vendor that has them would be good so you can actually try them on. Anasazis are found almost everywhere. Try them out in person if you can then come back online and get a better deal!

To be honest I would most likely just run some clean water through it if there is nothing built up in it. If you have some buildup maybe let some white vinegar sit in there for a few minutes and then rinse it all out. Or bleach. Either way just rinse it out reallllly good so you don't get that awful taste!

or if you want to spend money. go for this cleaning kit. http://www.backcountry.com/store/CAM0239/CamelBak-Hydration-Pack-Cleaning-Kit.html

My roommate bought this one recently and I thought it was a 2009 but I guess not. It has the wrist velcro. Looking carefully at the ones with the white zipper strings it looks like they are smaller at the cuff like maybe they are a little elastic but the north face website lists velcro adjustable cuffs next to these same pictures. Maybe it's on the back this year?

This was the first harness I ever purchased and I really can't complain even 2 years later. Its light, sized well, comfortable, and good gear loops. I really like the little piece of velcro on the front so I can keep it on my hits while I tighten it up. Great value for the price. I don't see why people buy more expensive ones after how well this one has treated me!

The halogen bulb on this thing is pretty sweet for lighting something in the distance and the 5 LEDs can make it seem like nearly daylight in your immediate surroundings. My roommate got one and I borrowed it on a remote bouldering trip and I wish I could afford one. It seems heavy but it isn't bad at all one you got it on your head. Luckily it uses AAs too because he says it didn't last as long as he had hoped. Also he claims the case is waterproof but I'm not about to jump in the river with it on quite yet.

This was the first shoe I ever bought by evolve... and they are awesome!!! The downturn is just enough, the heel is pretty close to perfect, the trax rubber has stuck to nearly everything so far, and the rubber on the top has even helped keep them from getting torn up on some toe hooks! Watch out when ordering, they run very small. All my other climbing shoes are 44 and 1/2 while these are 45 and they fit wayyyy tighter than the other pairs. I recommend a half size up from your normal climbing shoe. Despite being tight they are actually really comfortable. Nice job Sharma! maybe give up climbing and just design shoes! haha

I like this watch a lot. It isn't as big as what I thought a watch with so many features would be! The thermometer is only accurate when you aren't wearing it for about 10 minutes though. It always is affected by my body head on my wrist and can be more than 10 degrees off because of that. Can't wait to take it scuba diving and test out the water resistance!

Pretty sweet hydration pack. I wear it hiking between crags. I can fit my harness inside the big pouch with a few snacks and clip my shoes and chalk bag to different places on the outside. LOOVE the little magnet on the hose to keep it where I can get to it. However, the bite valve has recently split open due to lots of use. The water stays cold and I can even feel it cooling me off on my back.
