Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is solid bladder. I have been using this for years, not too much to say. It provides a good flow of water, the design is well thought out, I like the magnetic clip, it is easy to clean and dry, and the water never tastes funny. There you have it, this is a good bladder, I honestly dont know how they could have made it better, except for maybe maybe making it lighter, but that would sacrifice its durability, and maybe make the hose detachable.

First, this pad is 6ft long, which makes it an absolutely perfect camp bed. It exactly fits inside my marmot limelight 2p. Second, this pad covers a lot of square feet, giving you the confidence you need to go climb high problems without worrying about missing the pad upon a fall. Third, the foam seems really good. It is definitely on the stiff side, which is ideal for mid to high ball problems, not really ideal for low problems, but that is fine with me. THe carrying capacity does suck a bit, but you can mostly get around it by using the closure flaps and strapping stuff to it with some quick draws. Overall, I have had this pad for four weeks no, about 14 or so boulder sessions and a couple nights of camping, and I absolutely love it. It just barely fits in the trunk of my subaru outback, I dont even have to put the seats down.

I have used this quite a bit over the past month. As a light windbreaker on tours, as a wind breaker while trail running, and also a shell while riding my bike around town. This thing is pretty awesome. It is so light and packs down so well that I always keep it with me almost everywhere I go. The material is really great, light and breathable but still very windproof. I have not tried it out in a heavy rain yet, but it has been more than able to shed the light precipitation so far. Lastly, the fit is great. I am 5'10, 155lbs with a normal wingspan and the medium fits me perfect.

See my review of the icebreaker tank top. This shirt is every bit just as good, except that it has sleeves. Thus, I do not use it for my high output activities during the spring, but instead use it as a baselayer for skiing during the winter and early spring. Also, this shirt is freaking stylin, I wear it around town all the time because it is just soo comfortable and looks good. Lastly, the fit is great.

I absolutely love this tank top. I wear it when I box, lift weights, or go running. For high output exercising, this thin, ultra breathable, non-stinky and quick drying tank top is truly exceptional, I can not believe I wore cotton shirts for so many years. The sleeveless design really promotes airflow, way more comfortable than a t-shirt for high output exercise, and no farmers tan. Besides the awesomeness and softness of the Icebreaker merino wool, my favorite aspect of the shirt is the cut. I am 5'10, 150lbs, tall, thin and muscular, and this shirt fits me exactly right. Not douche-bag tight, but definitely flattering and comfortable (I wear a medium). The durability of this shirt remains to be seen but so far I do not doubt it. This shirt has seen very heavy use over the past month that I have had it.

There are only so many things that you can say about a running sock, but this sock is the best i have tried yet. Definitely wicks moisture super well, fits me just right, is light and breathable, and does not smell terrible after a couple hours of trail running (does not smell great either. Merino wool can only do so much, but definitely an improvement over any material I have ever used). Definitely my new favorite sock. The durability remains to be tested. If this sock can last me until next winter, then I will dub it a very durable sock.

These are by far the most uncomfortable boxer briefs I have ever tried. I am a boxer man who wears briefs on occasion for sport activities, so I thought these would be a nice compromise. Nope, just terrible. The same thing happened both times that i wore then, the pant legs ride up a bit and my junk just ends up hanging out of the bottom of these things constricted by the elastic. So freaking uncomfortable. I had to constantly readjust them. I will never wear these again. They get two starts because the icebreaker merino wool fabric is absolutely awesome, but other than that, the design is abysmal, at least for me.

I have been a boxer guy most of my life, so I was very hesitant to try these briefs. I tried some patagonia capilene briefs last year and was not really impressed, but these icebreaker briefs have simply blown me away with how comfortable they are. I am honestly not sure I can ever go back to my old boxers. I just ordered a second pair of these. After a weekend of rock climbing at Indian creek last week, these briefs kept my junk dry, well supported, and comfortable in my harness. I took them on a tour up Scotties Bowl this morning, and once again, dry, well supported and comfortable all the way up. I can not wait to go trail running with them once the snow starts to melt away. All hail Icebreaker briefs. Sizing is spot on. They have no fly, but I actually prefer it that way. The fly on briefs is always too small to be useful anyway, so this keeps it more simple. Just make sure you do not put them in the dryer. Washing by hand in the shower works very well, and they dry over night no problem. Would be great for a long backpacking trip.

I have two things to say about this helmet. One, it is comfy. The air vents really make this helmet comfortable in most conditions. I leave it on my head while touring up and down, that way I always have it on when it matters. Just can not beat the comfort of the liner and vents and fit. Second, and even more importantly, it just works. I took a head first dive into a tree at about 20mph this morning when one of my tips caught on underbrush and sent my flying. I am totally fine. As my skull made contact with the tree, I could feel the tremendous impact being adsorbed and redirected by the helmet. Weird feeling. The only thing going through my mind as it happened was, "I love this helmet sooo much". End of story, my neck will probably hurt tomorrow, but I am fine. Moral of the story, always wear a helmet, and use a comfy Smith helmet if you have that option.
