Well Crafted!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: 12

I bought these as my first boot to start glacier travel and mountaineering adventures. The detail in the craftsmanship in these are top notch Italian made. I wear a street shoe size 11 and went with a size 12 and they have worked out great. I am looking forward to more trips with these great boots.

Simple Hiking and Climbing Pant
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: 36

Gearing up for a climb of Mt. Rainier I purchased these. I was skeptical that they would provide enough warmth and wind protection for the trip. They did provide exactly what I needed though. The fit is definitely standard and does not have an alpine cut . The belt loops accommodated my belt no prob. If you have any questions about these please shoot me a message.

Stupid light!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this a couple years ago primarily for super light backpacking adventures. It hasn't disappointed. As you can see from the picture it worked as a great snow pit bench padding. It inflates and deflates pretty easy. It is "crunchy" but the lightweight and ease of use outweigh the noise it makes. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up!

Java in a FLASH!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Where to start....This is one of my favorite camping pieces I own. I have used this car camping, backpacking and mountaineering. I have even used it when the power went out at my house and I needed to make some grub. The java kit is an added bonus for your high altitude caffeine fix. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up!

A classic

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These sunglasses are rad. Being the old soul that I am, I wanted a classic looking glacier sunny. I have used these a few times, primarily on a trip to Mt. Rainier last June. They worked as described. The plastic protective case is nice and the construction is about what you would expect paying $150. I have a larger head and these fit fine. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up!

I have been using my ambit power cable for about 3 years and have never had an issue. I usually wait till my Ambit 2HR is down to about 20% battery life and charge er up. The cord is plenty long and could even be shorter to eliminate space. If you have any questions about Suunto products hit me up!

Verto Approach 1st edition
3 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: 11

OK - to preface I am reviewing the original TNF Verto Approach shoe (I believe a few years old now) - The Verto Approach III shoe is the new iteration from TNF and I am sure they have improved it. I used this shoe primarily for training to climb the Grand Teton standard route. Training included many scrambles in the central Wasatch (south superior, Pfiferhorn, Olympus). The rubber soles wore out particularly fast in the heel area. They did however accomplish all I set out to do in them. I thought I may get another 2 seasons out of them but alas they have found there way to a second hand gear store locally. TNF claims you can trail run in these which I did a little of but do not buy them for trail running specifically.

Sizing is true to size. I have owned a lot of The North Face footwear and I am an 11 in everything.

If anyone has experience with the current approach shoe please share! Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions.

Puppy Chic

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As you can see this is a great looking collar. Super durable and burly construction. The pink looks great! My only complaint is its fairly difficult to put the collar on and off with the hook closure. The rubber piece eliminates a lot of noise/jingling with id tags etc.

If you have any questions about Ruffwear or any other gear hit me up!

My go to!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have taken this bottle everywhere. Hiking, road trips, class, you name it! The bottle is super tough, looks good, and keeps water tasting fresh. The inner rubber seal on the lid has occasionally come loose during hard use but can be easily fit back. Highly recommend this bottle.

If you have any questions about this or other gear let me know!

Great addition to my Klean Kanteen!
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had this for a while and use it almost daily. I use it with the insulated tumbler for coffee and tea. I have not used the straw feature but it remains tightly sealed otherwise. It washes easy in the sink and even the dishwasher. If you fill you cup to high and the liquid moves around a lot it will seep through and spill FYI. The Open/Close function is a rubberized material and super easy to use.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out!

Ultra Protection
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have this (pictured) in a few year old model in a grey color. It I have a fairly large head. My ball-cap size is 7 3/8 so I went with the L/XL size and it works fine. The waterproofing works as advertised as I have been caught in multiple afternoon thundershowers here in Utah. The cord cinch system is very functional and easy to use. The UV protection and the wide brim allows your face to stay protected. I use this primarily for hiking and camping but have also taken it to rainy sporting events baseball games where sun exposure is high.

If you have any questions feel free to send me a message!

Durable!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

First off. Bought these pants when I was 230-240 lbs so I went with XL - They are fairly large on me now as I am 195 so I would go for the L. I use these ski touring, resort skiing, snowshoeing and just general winter activities. I overheat easy so the full side zips come in handy ALL the time. The reinforced knee area and the ankle area has proven to keep these things in great shape. Flylow crushed it with these pants!

So I have used this piece from BD for many things. Skiing, ski touring and hiking to name a few. I even eat crab legs with it on. I get a lot of compliments on the blue. It has been a great layering piece that vents well. Any questions feel free to ask!

I have used this jacket hiking, skiing, backpacking, and just basic car camping. I bought this jacket when I was about 230-240 lbs and it fit great. I have lost some weight so it runs big for me now. I would go with the size large for my current specs. Any questions let me know!

I have had my i/o's for a few years now. I regularly swap the lenses depending on the light. They are super easy to swap out. The mirror lenses I have are not holding their film well which Smith will back with their warranty. I have a pretty large head and these offer good coverage.
