Very nice glasses
4 5

I loved these glasses, the filter is very good for the brightest enviroments (I tried it over snow and over fresh water in sunny days).

I put 4 stars and not 5 because the case in which they send the pair I bought (The photo I uploaded) is not the same as the one showed in the photo showed in the detailed views, and is a lot bigger than that one. Even though the case I got is very good and protects perfectly the glasses is kind of bulky and when you are backpacking and need to save space, it just doesn't do the work...I upload a photo for you to see the case.

I had only tried it in dry nights until 8 days ago when a storm got us while camping in this tent at 2600m. It rained very hard all night and it kept us perfectly dry and warm, the wind wasn't so agresive but we didn't even used the guylines (the night appeared totally friendly) and the tent supported.

I recomend it for Backbackers (like me), for its relatively low weight for a 3 person tent, and for the easy way you assemble it.

I will use it in a few weeks in a more aggresive enviroment above paramo in Los Andes, I will upload some photos or video after that telling how it went.

Worth it...liked it more that other type of Daisy
5 5

just arrived home from rock and I can only say that after using today for first time this kind of daisy chain (i had only used the classical daisy like black diomonds), i would never go back to use the other type. Very comfortable, a little more bulky than a classical daisy but worth it in every aspect. Recomend it much more than the other type of Daisy chain after using both.

It worked perfect for ascending glaciar Pan De Azucar, El Cocuy, Colombia (5100m) and as an anchor in very hard snow, which it broke with no difficulty. The back shovel is also very good for working in the anchor. For the price is the best you can find, and even better than other that have a higher price. I totally recomend it for glaciar tavel. I dont use it for ice climb so i cant say how well it works for technical climb, but for the shape i dont think it could be the best option for that, but for the angle of the axe and how well it goes through snow and ice, I think is better that someone that has used it for ice climb give an opinion.

Even thought fortunately i have never had any emergency while im in the Mountain, this kit has what ever you need to treat an emergency; and with the book included you can even know how to react and treat emergencies you have never confronted. The weight and size is also perfect for long trips. Totally recomend it for all mointain and rock climbers.

worked perfectly for me ascending Pan De Azucar, El Cocuy, Colombia (5100m) with my boots that dont work with automatic nor semiautomatic crampons. Feel very comfortable and secure, as well as they have a very nice looking. worth the buy...incredible the price is the best, but the quality worth much more than that. I Recomend it.
