Coming from Mira's I'm finally over using anything la sportiva, these shoes are actually comfortable, and best of all the rubber doesn't come off like all my La sports have over the years.
I ended up going with size 10US and I wear a 9.5US shoe, and they fit perfectly. I use them for mostly sport climbing with a little bouldering.

The quality of these shoes is awesome, love the interior, it's soft and just feels nice all while keeping your feet snuggly in place. The rubber sticks, and sticks well.

I have yet to find a complaint other than on/off being a bit of a task at first, but that isn't really a problem to me.

I am usually a Velcro person, mainly because my parents lacked the parenting skills to teach me to tie my shoes, but I bought these anyways. I'm a grown man after all!

Anyways I got to try a pair before buying, really liked them. So being the typical online shopper I bought them shortly after, waited by my mailbox and when they came wore them around the house, and made my neighbors check them out...

Like every other review, they stick, and stick well. Edge well, etc etc. Definitely recommend these for any lace virgins out there. You will enjoy them.

I've used this pack for just about everything, from a few days hike, to a week plus hiking trip. Or just for a days worth of rock climbing, to a week long rock climb trip.

I am rough on backpacks, and this is by far my favorite as it has taken everything I have thrown at it (literally) It has been to Red Rock Canyons, NV; Sam's Throne Arkansas, The Needles, and many other places. Basically it has seen all sorts of environments and still looks as good as the day I bought it. While there are a few scratches on the bag, there are zero holes, and nothing that I am worried will be ripping anytime soon.

Definitely a great buy for anyone looking for a good bigger pack for their outdoor adventures.

I did not purchase this rope from BC but off a site I had gift cards for. Either way same product.

I have only used it a few times so longevity is still in question, but I bought this before a trip to RedRock Nevada and it handled everything great. Definitely a great rope for beginners or just someone wanting a good priced rope. Feeds really well in a GriGri2, smooth falls, and pretty lightweight.

It held up great against Red Rock, so looking forward to using it many times. If it lasts me a whole season I'll be happy any longer is going to be great.

Definitely recommend this rope.

I'm a simple man with simple needs from a shirt. It needs to hide my white pale body, while being comfy and lasting long enough for me to one day turn it into an oil rag.

This shirt fits all of those needs. It looks good, its plain and simple. It's light weight yet hides my man nipples from the public's eye.

To say it simply I like this shirt. Colors are nice, it feels good and does its job.

I have several of Merdian Lines shirts, and love them. I have fly fished, climbed, hiking, and even used one as a towel after a nice yog. These shirts hold up, and fit me well. They are nice and light and really just perfect all around. Plus Jeremy Collins is an awesome person, if you ever have the chance of meeting him do so you won't regret it as you will see what kind of person is behind the shirt/drawing.

This is probably one of my favorite lines for my local area. It is a bit noisy, but nothing close to the Shark line. It floats great, and stays for flexible, even in the freezing winter weather.
I also like the textured line as it allows me to grip it with a finger a lot easier, and where I got small cuts in my fingers from sharkskin, this has yet to do that to me.

I have this paired with my Fly Pig and Sage One 5 wt and 4wt rods. Could not be happier.

Have had these boots since they came out and do love them as they allow me to change soles very easily and they hold up very well. As someone that pushes their luck in the stream to get to a perfect spot I have ran into many rocks, logs, etc and these are holding up great.
The BOA system does work great, but I have had to replace it once already which Korkers covered. Other than that I have not had a problem with them.

I am a person that likes basic/plain shirts, I don't like all the graphic stuff usually. Bought a few of these around the holidays and do not regret it. They are that nice 50/50 blend which makes it feel soft and light.
I bought the Deep Heather, Kelly Green and a few other colors. I will definitely be buying more. They hold up real well from hiking, fly fishing, climbing, or sweating it up at the race track, I typically have one of these shirts on or around me.

Definitely a good buy.

I use these as my indoor climbing shoe. Love them, they fit my skinny feet well. I wear a 10US street shoe and go a full size down for these, so in La Sportiva's sizing chart is a 42.

The rubber on these is sticky enough and the shoe is able to do what I ask of it, though I don't climb outside with them, so cannot comment there. The Velcro system works great for my foot, heel sticks nicely. Just a great all around shoe for the price in my opinion. Anyone looking for a good cheaper shoe I recommend these or the 5.10 Rogue shoe. I have also heard good things from beginners on the Evolv Deft shoe.
Just make sure to find the shoe that fits you best, not the shoe everyone tells you to buy, you will thank yourself later.

I think most chalk is all the same. This stuff is good, been using it for a few weeks now and it is pretty chunky at first, just crush it in the bag and you're good to go, or of course use it how you feel.
In the gym it works very well, anything outside I tend to still use Bison Designs, but that is just because I use two different bags for the occasions.

I bought several different colors of these, love them. I am a basic shirt kind of guy, and these fit the bill. Got them for a great price and very happy so far. They are comfortable and light. Fit true to size, and quality feels great so far.
