Matthew's Bio

Learned to climb in the Gunks during college, and have branched into mountaineering while I lived in the PNW. Hoping to get back to the Gunks soon!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I ordered these for my wife, when we moved to the NE and needed some winter accessories. I wanted her to be able to use her phone to take pictures without pulling her gloves off and they work better than I expected with her smartphone. The grippy dots are a good addition, I have a MH set with no grip on the palms and holding my phone is like holding a bar of soap, but interacting with them works well. Well made and warm enough for most dry winter days.

These boots fit great. Make sure you get them big enough to fit comfy socks. They have a great Achilles Tendon support in the liner, and fit snug and secure. Haven't broke the walk mode yet, but most of the reviews say it'll happen. The BOA lacing is really really awesome. So easy, even with gloves on. Hard to find the Dynafit sole pieces for the green color, BD said they weren't expected in stock until Winter. I use them with Fritschi's for AT.

These glasses are really large. They provide good coverage, but you do look like a Sherpa wearing glacier glasses from the old days. They block a lot of light, but aren't polarized. Fit securely with bend earpieces (wrap all the way behind ear) and are lightweight. At the end of the day, I have no reason to take my Oakley Half Jackets off in favor of these.

Used for car camping, just used a tarp for footprint, cause I hadn't gotten the actually BD footprint for it. Thought the mesh was nice for ventilation, but the fly was really great and kept the rain off all night. This is a single layer tent, but the layer pulls on and off the mesh. Pretty easy to assemble ( I did it by myself in the dark) and light to pack in a pack. Got it for a deal on SAC. Mine is the yellow standard BD tent color, it looks more green in the pic.
