Do these have a microphone?
Hard for me to visualize how these fit in the ear. Does anyone have a picture? (Or a thousand-word explanation?)
can you put nerd lenses (corrective lenses) into the frames so you have glasses that are also sunglasses??
I bought this shoe as a gift for a friend who just started climbing. It's a good value performance shoe at an entry-level price. The padded tongue and soft last also make this a nice shoe for someone who is starting out but who also wants to excel quickly - they won't have to sacrifice comfort for sensitivity and edging control.
This shirt is a great value. The material is extremely soft, but also extremely burly. I ordered a men's large but it fit more like an extra large. Many of my flannel shirts shrink after a few washes, but this shirt doesn't show any signs of shrinkage, so unless you are a bear of a lumberjack or planning to wear this flannel shirt over a lot of other layers, I'd recommend downsizing a size from your normal shirt size.
I'm really happy with these boots. They look great, and are very comfortable out of the box. The sole is solid, grippy - seems a lot like vibram but it's Timberland's "green rubber" compound - seems really sticky/grippy so far. The color of the boot exactly matches the image on this site. The most important thing to note is that this boot runs really large. I originally ordered a Men's 10. It was WAY too big. Based on how big the 10 was, I replaced it with an 8.5 which is honestly, still I tiny bit big. I usually wear a men's 9.5 or 10. So unless you are going to wear really heavy oldschool wool socks, I would suggest downsizing at least 1 size on this boot....possibly even more.
Does anyone have detail images for these shorts? Where does the padding go? What does it look like? What type of foam is the foam? Thankfully Chad's review gives a little more info....
This hoody rules. I love the quilting, the heavy weight, the hood size is just right - not too big, not too small.
My wife has this jacket and she loves it. She wears it climbing all the time and it has held up incredibly well. No rips, no snags, the insulation keeps her warm on even the crispiest late fall days in little cottonwood or the gnarly cold winter days climbing out at Ibex. The jacket is true to fit, the hood is just the right size (not too big, but not so tiny you get neck cramps), and the zippers have held up to tons of abuse. If we still have this jacket in stock when my down jacket blows up, I'll definitely snag one for my self.
Why is this a women's bag? seems pretty unisex to me...is there something about it that makes it female-specific?
I like these socks a lot. They are comfy and breathe wellThey barely show above the tops of my shoes, which is sweet. The sock is definitely cushy. The only thing I'd like to see improved upon is to make them a little more low-profile around the foot, but for a midweight sock, this is to be expected. They fit a little snug in my normal shoes, so it would be nice to have a little less material around the foot, but I suppose that's the trade off for the cushion. Overall, great socks.
I really like these socks. They are super breathable, comfy, and padded in the right places without being overly bulky. I'm disappointed by the sizing though. I wear a Men's 9.5 / 10 and according to the size chart that makes me a Large in this sock, but the socks are big. When I pull them on I get that annoying excess heel pouch above my heel because the socks are too long for my foot. Next time I will order a medium.
I'm confused...the sizing chart isn't really that helpful here. Can someone tell me what size S = in men's footwear sizing (US). Why not just size them like 6-9, 9.5-11, etc...?? I wear a 9.5-10 shoe, dunno what size sock to buy.
how do these backcountry.com writers come up with such insanely awesome descriptions? "The EC90 Aero has the straightline efficiency of a razorblade and the acceleration of a bee-stung quarter horse." That's fargin brilliant.
How heavy is the whole rig?
...if only I could afford it. This may be the single coolest piece of outerwear I've seen this year. Leave it up to the Norwegians to slay it in an area where style previously just didnt exist...and to do it all AND push the standards of tech. I'm droolin.
