i'm feeling good about this rope. took it to eldorado canyon last month and it performed beautifully. i didn't have the same twisting issue as others listed here and it was almost ready to go (fully flaked and unknotted) right out of the packaging. i reflaked it to make sure, and off we went. my climbing partner took a 20 foot whipper on it with no probs. feeds nicely, no stiff waxy feeling you might get with other ropes, and had good friction on my belay device (reverso). highly recommended.

i had tried on a size 2 helmet at a local store, and it was a bit big, so - believing that the smaller size would work, i ordered a size 1 helmet on backcountry. while the size of the helmet seemed better, the straps for the earlobes were too high and so my lobes couldn't fit under the straps. it's unfortunate because petzl could have made this adjustable, but did not.

so i had to return this very nice helmet.

i was looking for a jacket to climb with in case i got caugt on a cold belay. though it lacked a hood (i like one that goes over the helmet), it had pretty much all the other features i was looking for. sturdy ripstop waterproof material with primaloft insulation. had double zippers (good for the harness) and pockets a plenty. so why did i return it? it was too short on the torso! i'm 5'5" and about 110 lbs, so i tried both the XS and S. XS was fine with arm length, but the length of the jacket was too short and allowed drafts to come up. the S was still too short, and didn't hug my body as well... even while sitting around camp, i felt a draft on my lower back. what a real shame. had it been 2 inches longer, it would've been a keeper.

i initially loved these sports bras - they really fit nicely when you first get them. i have now used them for a year - and after fairly regular use (i would say once or twice a week), the inside lining starts to stretch in a way where it looks lumpy from the inside. the outside still has elasticity, so it looks like you have extra bulk or uneven-ness underneath. kind of annoying because these are expensive and super cute to start with.

i sleep cold - and need the insulation to keep me at a comfy temperature. i've had this bag for 1 year and took it winter camping several times on some 5-6 day trips. with temps way below freezing - frost inside the tent (and on my bag) - i kept nice and warm. I'm skinny (5'5" and 110 lbs), so i don't always touch the sides of my sleeping bag. this was a problem in the past, as i woke up from cold spots when i shifted. but it doesn't seem to happen with this bag. and after repeated stuffings, it has kept it's loft fairly well... only seeming issue is that it seems too sweat a lot. my bag always seemed a lot wetter than my companion's bag in the morning (though i never had a problem w/comfort).

Fast forward to 2011 - so have had this bag for 5 years now, and the bag now has lost most of its loft. i only store it in its mesh bag, but it no longer keeps me warm in 20 degree temps, not even with socks, thermals, and a bag liner in... very sad that when i asked MH about it, they said their synthetic bags only last about 5 years.

if you're looking for something hip and cute around town, this is the jacket for sure! the cut is well fitted and keeps the draft out. but if you need higher performance for the backcountry trips, this might not be the perfect thing. it's a bit heavier and bulkier than other synthetic jackets and wouldn't be my first choice to stuff into the pack.

these were well fitted pants - very nice cut. however, it didn't "sit just above the hip" for me. in fact, it landed over my belly button, and made it feel a bit constricting for me when bending forward. if it wasn't for this, it would have been the pants i was searching ages for! instead, i had to return them.

got this for less than $16 when the everyone else is selling it for more than $35!! what a steal! after several hours use, the webbing takes a toll on your feet and i was a bit sore. however, i doubt another product would be any different.
