Guy'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 put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

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...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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...

I also ask the same question....

Actually this pick looks different and seems more low profile than the fatter picks which have come with my Quantum Techs. It woud be good to know if, when bought, they deliver the pick as pictured or the same pick as the Quantum Light/Techs have.

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...

Value for money.

I echo the views of others here...good value, good coverage and fit, too. Also quite dark and well suited to altitude sports as you would hope given the pitch. My only disappointment was that I had some kind of clouding or delamination affect the lens after about 3 expeditions. I now keep 'em as a backup for my Explorers.

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.
4 5

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..

Having climbed Denali in the warm season...

Having climbed Denali in the warm season of 2006 I'd still say that you would be taking a risk with your toes without a double boot. If you are tossing up with the Spantiks there is no choice - go with the Spantiks. You may be able to fit your 40Belows over the Spantiks too...mine fit good. Photo shows an average summit day...
