This is a great pack! It is comfortable, and the zip down sides and the dry bag opening make getting at your gear easy. The two inside gear loops are great for making your Belay Device a quick find in a full pack. I'm the kind of person that packs a lot when I climb and was concerned after reading some reviews that the pack would be too small. However, it fits my standard rack, harness, shoes and chalk bag, helmet, half gallon of water, and the (just in case)rain gear and extra jacket just fine. The top pocket is perfect for a days worth of snacks and goodies, and the front pocket hosts the first-aid kit, head lamp and some flip-flops with room to spare. This pack looks great and when you unzip both zippers and pull out your rack the pack makes a nice "crazy creek" chair that will make all your friends jealous.

The Rock Lite is a pretty cool helmet. My first helmet was a Black Diamond Half Dome and I thought a helmet was a helmet and they would all feel awkward on my head. After trying on my Boss's Petzl Elios I realized that I was wrong, helmets could be comfortable. I saw an add for the Rock Lite helmet and thought I would try it. In some of the pictures I saw of the Rock Lite I realized it sits really high on the head so I ordered the Blue one to avoid looking like Toad from Mario Kart. When I got the helmet in the mail I was pretty shocked about how lightweight it really is. It does sit high on my head but that's ok because it keeps the rim of the helmet out of view. My first day wearing it I had a beanie on underneath the helmet and didn't notice the helmet at all and by pitch 4 I literally forgot I had it on. The only down side is that the shell of the helmet doesn't *feel* as strong as some of the other helmets I have tried. But so far, it has held up ok after a few times of cramming my head into some off-widths to check out some awkward gear placements.
