This little lightweight shovel is great! I used it in an advanced avalanche awareness class in February. It packed well in my daypack, assembled easily, dug the snow pit with vigor. The curved angle of the shovel blade makes shovel tests a little difficult. But if the slab is going to avalanche, it will regardless of your shovel angle. I really like the lightness of it for the backcountry. I will use it often!!

This is a great fun tool for backcountry. I climb and really need to know the snowpack of the area I am going into. This is a great tool for me to see how much it will take to avalanche an area. That way I can decide if this slope is good or not to traverse. It gives me options to be safe in the backcountry. I purchased my cord a couple of years ago and my mountaineering guide liked it so much, I purchased this one for him as a present.

My guide and I went to Mt. Shasta for an advanced avalanche awareness class in February. I have the snow study kit, which I purchased from you which includes a couple of the snow cards. My guide had this one, but I didn't. I liked it and so when I came home, I searched for it from your company. I love all of this backcountry gear. It is great fun to study the outdoors through fun gear. Not only am I learning about the earth and all of her magic and wildness, I can also be safe in doing so. That way, I can "live to climb another day" as my hero Ed Viesters says.

These pants are the BEST!!! I love them! They are great for 14,000 footers as a base layer in winter. Plus, I've slept in these and they are great for easy turning around in your sleeping bag. You don't get caught and struggle. One time, the temp. fell to 16 degrees and very very cold. I was car camping and put on everything I had to keep warm. The DriClime on top of mid weight long johns did the trick. I was beginning to think I was in trouble, as I was shivering uncontrollably!! The DriClime's probably kept me from hypothermia!!

This is a great bowl, lightweight, holds a lot of food, easy to clean. I even use it when I stay at the motel on the way to a climb for cooking in the room!! It is always packed in my mountaineering gear bag!!!

These are GREAT pants! I wear them to sleep in during snowy winter months on Mt. Shasta in Northern California. I also wear them to sleep in on Mt. Diablo in Northern California--there is no snow but it is very cold! They are easy to wear in the bag as you can roll around and not get stuck against the sides of the sleeping bag. I wear them also under my Gore-Tex bibs climbing Mt. Shasta. The wicking is great and I stay dry even when perspiring. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants to be snuggly warm and comfortable.

These backpacking socks are GREAT!!! Soft and cushiony and warm. They are wonderful inside my boots. No binding, no slipping, no blisters (of course I wore a liner). I highly recommend these socks to anyone who carries a heavy pack. I received a pair as a birthday present and promptly purchased many more for birthday presents to others. I even gave the person who gave them to me 2 pr for her birthday!!! She loves them too!!!
