Oh and what is the difference between this compass and the MC-2G (http://www.backcountry.com/suunto-mc-2g-navigator-global-compass) other than the price?
One more question, I think it says it in the description but I would just like to confirm: can this be used as effectively in the southern hemisphere (i.e. patagonia)? Is there an adjustment that I have to make (i.e. adjust declination, etc.)?
Hi, where is this compass made in?
Is the hood (climbing) helmet-compatible?
Nice construction, nice material... used it for a hike but bought these to replace my BD Punishers for ice climbing.
I'll update this review once I get more in-the-field usage.
I really like the OutDry material so far and the gloves are thin enough that I feel that I have more dexterity compared to my BD Punishers. I've also done pull-ups with them while gripping my tools and I like the feel so far.
Nice thickness... for really cold days, I wear my arc'teryx covert hoody but this is good for most days ice climbing (fits under the helmet), hiking, etc.
The material is really delicate. I rubbed against my steel patio fencing and the material rubbed and unfurled, causing a few extruded threads. I hope I'm making sense.
After using it about a dozen times now, it's a great shirt: nice design, the material is comfortable, but not very durable. So as long as you're using it for running (as opposed to climbing, etc.) then you should be ok.
I have prAna shirts 2 years old that are in better shape than this.
So I just had the chance to use this for the first time for a whole weekend (on Mt. Washington, NH) and I'm really impressed. Cuts the wind really nicely (115 MPH gusts that weekend) and layers really well. I spent the hike up wearing a base layer, my bib pants and this on top. While ice climbing, I put on an extra layer fleece between the base layer and this and it was just perfect!
Hood fits really well ontop of my helmet. So far so good. I bought the blue and it's a really nice color. Fit and cut is a bit baggier than Arc'teryx but is quite a bit nicer than most.
Overall, a great jacket!
