By far the best ATC that I have ever owned or used. On this site it says that its used for rope diameters between 7.5 and 8.9mm, but that must be the minimum (or a mistake) I don't remember ever seeing any such information in the attached info packet and I've used this device countless times with a 10.2 and 9.8 and never had any issues. The "Adaptive Rope Control Technology" is perfect allowing a nice soft catch, but providing enough 'bite' to give you plenty of confidence.

These pants are absolutely without question a GREAT value; however they really don't fit me that well (31-32" waist, 32ish inseam, 174ish lbs) they sort of puff out around my hips which is annoying. They are also rather restrictive while climbing and doing high steps, big drop knees, and high heels. The durability is great, definitely on par with denim when it comes to knee-bars, technical mantels, etc. The zip pocket is also a really nice feature.

However, I would save my money and buy the Prana Stretch Zion Pants if I could.

I have gone through more than my fair share of climbing shoes. However, the Cobras have become my go to shoe for just about everything nowadays. I love the seemingly perfect balance of flexibility and stiffness with this shoe, I can easily paw a foot hold on really step stuff and yet count on them to be there for me when I need support for a thin techy route. At first the heel would slip off, but the shoes have quickly molded to my feet and now the heel is bomber. I sized them the same as my Solutions which are 40.0s, my street shoe size is a 10.5/11...so yeah I really downsized them a lot, but that's how I roll. I don't have much a heel so sometimes I have to go smaller than normal, although these shoes have solved that problem but creating an enormously large callous around both of my heels. It actually now appears that I do in fact have normal feet with normal heels, so that's another plus.

Bottom line is these shoes are what Moses used to solo Mt. Sinai, so don't miss your calling and pick up a pair of these babies.
