Love the C4's and this package covers the most used sizes, great for entry or expert level climbers.
Do what they're supposed to, organize your rack. now my rack is organized.
I bought this because the stuff sack I had with my tent tore. This thing is pertty burly and I have a lot more confidence in the life of this then I ever did in my tent's pack.
I bought these for my sister in law. She's a beginner climber and they are perfect for her. However, I think they will continue to be perfect for her as she gets better. Best selling women's shoe for a reason.
This thing will blow you away on how small it is when you open the box. Just remember, this is mean to be a super lightweight daypack that keeps your stuff dry during short hikes etc. It is not made for comfort, has no structure, and it isn't the most durable fabric out there. Just make sure you aren't planning on this being a go-to day pack for every hike.
This thing is sweet, a waterproof compressible, genius!
I just bought two of these to compress my down jackets and keep them dry in my packs for climbing, hiking, camping etc. They do their job well, however, it has very limited compression capabilities. Not because the process doesn't work (push air out, stuff gets smaller, piece of cake) however, as far as compressing garments, when you press down and try to roll the top its hard to roll it as far down as you want to because (at least in my case) the stuff inside gets caught in the roll. I've only done it like 5 or 6 times now, so maybe I just suck at it.
I really don't like metolius's cheap pads. The fastening system on mine barely lasted a year. The cheap rubber they used to hold it closed just tears. I have to hold mine together with a strap going all the way around now. And the fabric on the bottom tears really easy. I wouldn't recommend this specific pad to anyone.
I've been a big minimalist runner for 5 or 6 years now. I always ran trails with zero drop minimalist shoes on thin rubber and it started to cause pain in my feet so I switched to these being that they are an actual trail shoe. They're really good but I had a hard time transferring over to the heel to toe drop and thicker soles. I feel really uncoordinated in them and I'm not sure if it's the transfer from minimalism or if the shoe itself just doesn't run well. As far as hiking and wearing them around town, they look great, fit great, and feel great.
Took a 15 foot whipper on two red C3's in a thin roof crack, only one held, so that's neat. They're a bit goofy to place to make sure you check the lobes!
I don't really trust daisy chains but the PAS is 100times better and I never climb without one. For big wall stuff I use two during long belays in case I need to shift around on my ledge and for if I need to move any gear around on the anchors, it allows me to be in at all times. Way more redundant than a daisy.
Super tiny, easy to pack, comes with a hard case, cranks out the heat, can't ask for much more. The only downfall is the lack of an igniter, but we have lighters anyway.
These really aren't bad approach shoes, the rubber is good. I use them only for approach though, they're SUPER fat shoes, I feel like I'm back in the early 2000's when super fat skate shoes were popular. So that's a bit annoying, I think if I bought another approach shoe I'd go with patagonia's cragmaster.
I've demoed all different types of shoes, been to tons of shoe clinics, tested hundreds of shoes and nothing fits me better than this shoe. Truthfully, I despise the solutions and the pythons, and the futuras but I love these, totally different fit and sportiva nailed it. My current pair have seen 3 resoles and they're still holding on. Might just need to get a new pair now though, they're getting pretty stinky. The pic is me wearing them on the perfect limestone of American Fork, UT
Yeah, I have this pack and I put my nalgenes in the side pockets all the time!
So I had this thing for a while, it started leaking air slowly, so I dunked it in my bathtub, found the hole, patched it and all was right with the world again. But then a few months later it started going downhill again, I couldn't lay on it for more than 2 hours before I was on the ground. So i dunked it again, never found a leak. I looked over that thing under water for over an hour and never once saw a leak. I have no idea what was going on so I tossed it, kind of bummed about it. Trying to decide if I want to get another BA pad.
Best rope bag I've ever owned!
Best thing to have under you as your crushing some stone with your meat paws. I've owned a lot of pads, fallen on a lot more pads, and destroyed some pads, but never encountered one better than this.
I've had my Boaris' since 2009, they've been my go to shoe ever since. The fit great, they feel great, I've had them all over the country and they have seen thousands of miles underfoot. Almost four years later they're starting to shred apart but they've held their own against what I've put them through.
highlining in a blizzard, this thing was perfect
