The Karakorum are great boots. My pair are waterproof and warm, without defects, but I think that are not a mountaineering boots, however works great with crampons (I use it with BD sabre tooth clip) for glacier traveling and moderates slopes, so I prefer use the Karakorum boot for hard hiking in the mountains.
These boots are very comfortables and don't need breaking in period, I used it for fist time in a 40 miles hiking (with glacier and rock paths) and my feet feel great all time.
The Stoic Breaker is a great jacket, I've use several times and always is warm, even with several wheather and strong wind. The problems with the seams are true, especially in the sleeves, with some abrasion some threads rip off , but maybe for that this is a fleece jacket not a shell.
Is not waterproof but in light rain you will be dry and warm; the hood fit is perfect and you can use a helmet under it and have a nice inner pocket for your glasses, your phone or anything like that.
Those are the packed dimensions, but the dimensions unrolled for the small are 51 x 20 x 0.75 in; the regular dimensions are 72 x 20 x 0.75 in.
These headphones are awesome and the sound quality is high, almost that depends of your mp3 player also. The Aerial7 Phoenix are very confortable in your head and in your pack because you can reduce its size to put in your bag. Great headphones! (And they come with a nice bag!)
This headlamp is awesome, I have used in night rock climbing and is like a Sun over your head, you can see the route very clear and its light for long-distance is perfect for communication with your parter. When I saw the Storm in the box I said "Oh %&$#¢@, looks like a little Transformer". This headlamp is perfect!
I love this bottle! His wide mouth is perfect for put inside some ice cubes and his cap system is so efficient! A great daily water bottle.
Yes, this pant really have thigh vents, have zippers on the inside with mesh. The Burton Poacher pant is amazing!
These boots are amazing, they are extremely light but despite its light weight feel totally robust and firm. When I opened the box and saw them I thought it would be heavy boots, hard to wear, but in contrast, are lightweight, very comfortable and give excellent stability and great support to the feet.
