These are great gloves, some of the best ever made for the warmth and dexterity. I took them to Alaska and climbed a bunch of mixed routes with them. They are the gold standard in a lot of peoples opinion for a really warm glove that still allows you to place gear effieciently. The only drawback is the massive price tag. They do have a lifetime warrenty though.

I am a Forester by profession and spend most of my year hiking many miles cross country through the mountains everyday. These boots held up for a year of this abuse, which for a boot this light is really amazing. I will buy these boots again and again!

This is a great glove for warmth, but I had some problems with the stitching and toughness of the build of the glove. After a season of heavy use a lot of the seams had blown and I had to resort to duct tape. The other issue is the dexterity. I had a hard time gripping ice tools with these gloves. Overall they are great if you replace gloves every year and if you don't need to have dexterity.

This has to be one of the lightest, most sturdy jackets ever made. It is bombproof when it comes to wind and rain/snow, but is so light and the cut is just loose enough, it feels like you aren't wearing a jacket. The only way this jacket could be better is if it kept you warm at the same time!

Because these pants have a slim cut, they are not combersome and make great ice and mixed climbing apparel. They are always waterproof, windproof, and have been fully abrasion resistant for a few years of heavy use. This is the best made pair of winter shell pants I have ever had or seen!
