Ryan's Bio

Anyone looking for some screaming deals on outdoor equipment and solar energy gear, come visit me at the West Valley Utah Costco and get up to at least 25% to 40% off the season's top gear from June 22nd-August 1st.

Outdoors enthusiast and fanatical gear junkie, I'll let ya know what's legit. Half sasquatch, half paul bunyon. I spend most of my time in the wilderness or with a blue ox.

I've either personally tested all the equipment I write reviews for or have received feedback from friends or family that are also outdoors enthusiasts.

so, this is great for a day on the rocks! it's got some flex and stretch to it and it's very breathable and it's wicks like nobody's business! patagonia is the competition to beat in layers IMO. i'm more of a cap 3 guy because it's just so versatile in mild and colder weather conditions but this layer feels great against the skin and keeps you dry! it provides some uv protection and most importantly looks good. hehe.

the chest ascender works great. good piece to have for beginners doing any type of ascending. it's good because it'll help prevent the climber/ascender from conking their head on the side of the rock. the added auto-locking device prevents any slippage. also good to have for any type of building or tower ascending. definitely does its job

love this jacket. great for expeditions, alpine, whatevs. it's legit. too legit. in fact, it's too legit to quit. it's indestructible and a bomber jacket that can take a shizzload of beating. i'd recommend sizing down. girlfriend had to actually size down 2 sizes from her normal pat size. for guys, at least one size down and you'd still have TONS of extra room for movement. i'm 6'2, 165lbs and small fits good enough to have several layers. get it!

this jacket is amazing. everything about it, however, you absolutely MUST size down! don't even think about not sizing down! i researched this HIGH and LOW everywhere on the net to make sure i got the correct sizing, and my girlfriend is 5'3, and not sure about her weight (she will never tell me!) but she is a 28 in the waist, wears a size 8, and 34c in the bust. she always wears a medium in patagonia. medium in the capilenes etc. she would be swimming in the medium, i sized down and got the small and it was still too big and overly puffy in the sleeves and everywhere else. luckily she was able to go to the pat store in denver and they had an XS in her size. fits PERFECT!...so in my opinion i say size down 2 sizes from normal!i read the review from Nicole Waltersdorf, and she's dead about it, i couldn't believe it! i will attach a pic so you can believe it! my girlfriend can still get at least a couple of layers under the jacket with no restriction at all! she can't stop thanking me for it!

much easier in my opinion for descending than the grigri and many other devices. you squeeze the the handle and it allows you to control the speed of your descent (you can get cooking on this thing if you're not careful, i don't mind it though). this is THE iconic caving device, and works extremely well in descent. not my cup of tea for ascending stuff though. overall, everyone needs one if all you do is cave or abseil. i've had good experience with mine.
