My Grivel ice axe in 82cm long. I need a
good leash that was long enough. The Dragonne fits just fine. Took 5 seconds to install and now I'am ready to go!!! If you need a long leash like me you will not be disappointed.
I wanted a good duffel for a trip to Egypt this Spring. Well, I found one. TNF Camp Duffel is it. Not to big and not to small. Just right. Plenty of space to pack everything you need. A tough duffel with a rubber coated surface to repel water. Zippers are big and strong. There is also a unique I.D. sleeve on the top of the bag. Great idea. Forgot to mention that I bought a size large. Ok I give TNF Camp Duffel 5 stars for toughness,looks,storage space and over all design.
I used this biner at my local climbing gym and I like it. With the bent gate I found it much more easy to clip in and out of the rope. Gate action is smooth also.
These crampons are super tough and not
too heavy. I have not yet had the chance to use them. Will very soon. I'm wearing
Koflach Degre's and stepping into the Sabretooth's are very easy. Adjustability is great and the fit is good and tight.
You might have a problem if your boot size is greater than 13. I wear a 12.5 and the Spread bar is maxed out. Ok I hope this bit of info helps. So for the
price,durability and ease of use I give them 5 stars.
I bought a few pairs of these pants for a trip the Greece in the spring of 05.They are very comfortable and they shed water very well. The Apex comes with alot of storage space. Two large cargo pockets in the front that can hold just about anything. The zip pocket in the back was kind of a pain in the ass. The zipper is to small so when you close it
it wants to ''hang-up'' a bit. I do like
the extended side zips located at the ankles. The zips start at the ankles and go almost to the knees. Great for extra ventilation. But I would only wear these pants in cooler climates. Any temp's above 75F you risk sweating your ass off.Ok,the Apex's are comfortable,well built and wash up great so I give them a
well earned 5 stars. Thanks again Backcountry.
This little LED headlamp is the best!I lost power for over a week due to hurricane Ivan. As night fell I used the Tikka Plus to help get things done like cooking ,cleaning and picking up after the storm. This lamp did not let me down at all. I used the ''med'' setting which was more than enough light. The batteries showed NO sign of fading. It is easy to wear and has no weight. After using this lamp,I can't live without it. As soon as I got power back I ordered three more Tikka's for backup. As for that I give the Tikka 5 stars. Thank you Backcountry!
The Glacier is really nice ''warm,soft''
shirt/base layer.I have not really had the chance to test it out in very cold conditions yet. But I know it will perform great. I plan on wearing it under a Gore-Tex jacket so I'am sure it will kick ass. So, as for feel, fit and overall construction of the Glacier I give it 5 stars. Thanks again Backcountry.
