Thomas's Bio

My passion is rock climbing; but I'll try just about any sport that keeps me outside.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. She wears this almost everyday regardless of the temperatures outside its so comfortable. Works great as either a layer under something or completely by itself with the warmer temperatures.

Great buy!

Fit: True to size

I have used this shoe for about 3 months. I wear a street size of 11.5 (US) and I ordered a 44.5.

These shoes are incredibly comfortable. They are snug around the widest part of your foot and literally suction onto your heel. The rubber is stiff but still very sticky. The three straps help you "tune" the fit to your foot perfectly.

I recently just had my right shoe heel cup split right down the middle. It seems to have happened around the stitching so it may be a manufacturer's defect. I'll update this review to five stars when I get them fixed. Even with this tear, they still climb extremely well!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this on countless backcountry adventures and I have never had a problem. I used to have an older CamelBak than was a pain in the butt to dry, but I really like the way this one has arms that keep the bladder wide open.

You can't go wrong with this.

Nice holds to fill in a blank wall. Great choices for feet, crimps, and finger jugs.

The holds did not come cleaned (i.e. the bolt holes were still covered in a thin layer of the hold material). I tried my best at cleaning them but now some of my bolts are stuck in the hold because of the material left behind. Also a few holds came already cracked.

I wonder if this could be a collection of holds that didn't meet their standards.

I have used this jacket for a while now and it is definitely my go to jacket for all my outings. Rock climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, and even just casual wear.

There is plenty of room in the hood for a helmet while climbing. The jacket is not a tight fit so you can put other layers on underneath it. The fleece lining on the inside is heavy enough to keep you warm when you need it, but also then enough to keep you cool if the temperatures happen to rise.

Overall this is such a great jacket that you cannot go wrong with. Especially for the price!

I've had this for several months now. I have to say its the best isulated bottle I've ever owned. A couple months ago I made some coffee at about 7 in the morning. I didn't drink it right away because I was in a rush. I got back to the house at 12 pm and it was still too hot to drink. That's 5 hours!! Now I'm thinking about picking up some different sizes...

I picked this up at a local gear shop who was doing a sort of garage sale. I just picked it up on a whim because I needed a rain jacket very bad. It was definitely the best decision I made. It has held up great even in torrential downpours. The DryQ is incredibly lightweight and oh so breathable. I'm 5'10 and 155lbs and the medium works great. Fits plenty of layers underneath as well.
