The Guyser's Bio

Still struggling to pick up your language...phrases such as "killer' "off the hook" and "slammin" are a bit tricky.

Sounds like some obscure language associated with aid climbing?...heh heh.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 8"

Good materials, workmanship and finish. The hood is awesome. Two things...the arms are kind of tight and the thumb hole chanels cold air straight into the lower arms, more so than any other thumb hole garment i've worn. Should have proper wristies. Also there is no waist draw cord...feels a bit weird not having that option in an alpine garment. Once remedied, it will be a 5 star hybrid.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these for general use (outdoor work, rock climbing, alpine, tennis, running etc) and they have performed well. Great fit and high quality lens (almost as good as smiths but with a much better frame).

They sit very close to the face and eyebrows and seem to get sweaty and dirty on the inside of the lens, far more than any other sunny I've known. Need frequent cleaning. Good quality cloth cleaning bag included, so no worries. Lens's have stood up well to the wiping...

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Was surprised to see how wide the shoe is, but this turned out for the better as there was good room to accommodate an after market innersole. You may need this on harder ground as the shoe has a barefoot running feel about it and most of the cushioning comes from the big lugs. Traction is first class!

Probably better for earth. mud snow etc than the mixed terrain I have, but I feel once I get used to the feel they will be awesome. Feel very low to the ground, but therefore very laterally stable.

Still fit true for size, 42.5 fits me in most LS shoes/boots.

Although I held grave fears for these pants due to their comparatively light feel, they held up well to chimneying, cracks and some decent approach/descents...they are a great climbing pant. Only some seam sewing have worn or abraded away, the fabric has stood up well...

Hit 'em up style

After initial doubts I am now sold. At first I was put off by the fattish picks, but they have proven themselves on some hard ice now and I am used to them. The pinky rest has proven to be more durable than some have said. They are comfortable to walk with on easy ground and the pole-tip ferule has good bite. If they were available with a thinner pure ice pick I'd give 'em 5 stars...

Very well produced pure minimalist item. Gets a lot of use cycling. On the fit, it fits slim but have found the arm length great. Note: There is only one pocket (mp3) on the small of the back , low down and offset to the right. There is no other internal pocket. I'd love a united version of this jacket, with the features of the hoody and superpower jacket combined...

Almost perfect...

Great general alpine harness assuming that you value lightweight and packability but need a comfortable harness for technical climbing too. Bought mine in 2008 and like it except you cannot unhook the leg-loop suspenders easily for a call of nature. Also I bought a size larger to fit down pants and multiple layers, figuring I could just cinch it down, but I have found it hard to keep the legs and waist tight for very long, with the buckles slipping...it seems a pain to have to tie them off...my bad I guess.

Great Helmet.

I really love this comfortable and protective helmet. A good balance of weight and moulded protection with nice functional features and a comfortable fit and chinstrap. The torch retainer at the back (bungee) will need a tweak as it will 'ping' off at some stage before you need it.

A contender for best among the light weight softshells. Good balance of features and excellent fit and drape. Good for cycling, alpine, hiking and daily use. The lack of an MP3 pocket is an omission, considering it will be used for an all-rounder and the hood cinch is not quite snug enough around the chin/neck for extreme weather, but then its not really designed for that use..
