I just picked up a pair of these at my local shop and its the first, high end, high performance shoe Ive ever owned. Im really stoked on these shoes right now and really glad I spent the extra money. Ive used them in the gym a handful of times and they make standing on dime edges a breeze. The only complaint I had was the heel cup is really deep. My heel doesn't completely fill it but the extra space doesn't really effect the heel hooking performance so I dont really care. Overall though I'm really satisfied with these and can't wait to slay some Tensleep limestone pockets this summer when I go back home!

This is a sick rope with an insanely soft catch! I do mostly limestone sport climbing and it is perfect for sending! Ive had it for a few months now and the only reason i didnt give it five stars is because the sheath has gotten pretty fuzzy quickly but probably mostly due to the rock and rope drag at my local crags. One of my favorite parts about this rope is that it is super light weight but i still love the 9.7 feel. Its not stiff at all and is so smooth through my guide. I would recommend this rope for sure!

The MFD Alltime is the greatest thing to happen to the ski industry in a long time. I just tried my pair yesterday mounted with some Pivot 14's for the first time and they ski and tour amazingly. On the way up they are incredibly stable, especially when side hilling. I never once worried about my setup on the icy traverse. Although they are heavy, I didn't notice it much on the uphill because they were so smooth. Transitions are super easy as you don't even have to step out. The pole activated riser system is even easier to use than i expected and you can almost switch it up while still walking (a few more tours and I'll have it down). On the way down my skis rode almost exactly the same as without the MFD. The whole setup is super burly and I'm sure will last me a long time. Definetly worth the money, thank you Jason Prigge and MFD!

The MontBell Thermawrap Pro is an awesome jacket. Super warm for how light weight it is. Ive found that with a fleece on under it, I can stay warm no matter how cold it is outside. However, if you want a puffy jacket that will keep you super, super warm standing alone or something more durable, you might want to look elsewhere. The nylon shell is super lightweight, but you have to be careful because its somewhat easy to tear. Other than that, I love the hood and it has a nice feature on the zipper that makes it never catch. This jacket is perfect for layering as well, on super cold days i ski with it under a shell and stay warm forever. If your going light and fast and wanna look super steezy, this is the jacket for you!

This shell is awesome, and the bright yellow has so much steeze! So far for me its been completely waterproof and super breathable. It's got that classic Mountain Hardware quality as well with watertight zippers and a very custom fitted hood which can fit over a helmet. Another nice feature is the wrist cuffs with thumb holes to keep out the snow and the burly pit zips. Such a great storm day jacket, would recommend to anyone!

Alpine Trekkers are obsolete. Please save yourself the hassle and money and buy a real AT binding. Sure they eventually do the job and you get to use your own burly bindings, however, the drawbacks far outweigh the benefits. First off, the trekkers take up so much time during a day of touring. Making laps is hard b/c you must take your skis off and the trekkers out of your bindings to ski down then pull them out of your pack and fiddle with them till they sit in your bindings right. Sounds easy, but the trekkers always put up a good fight. Second, they break. The heel piece on mine snapped the first day i skied them. Finally, if you ski Rossi binders or another binding with a really tall heel piece, dont even bother. the heel of your boot will come down on the heel piece of the binding and not let go all the way down to the 0 degreee position (major pain on long flats). The Day Wrekkers are no longer a necessity to get into the backcountry and a Fritschi, Duke, or MFD is a much better option.
