Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Yeah...I'm wearing it in my profile pic. Darn good piece of adventure clothing. Loop your thumb when the hands are cold on the rock. Flip up the hood when your helmet is not enough to keep you warm (and it goes seamlessly under your helmet too!) It breaths amazingly too. As your skining up the steeps you can see the piece wick out the moisture from your base layer. Goes perfect with a merino wool piece underneath. Oh and runs true to "patagonia" sizing.

This is the best design out there on low priced air mattresses. I spend money on other brands but they only last a couple nights a piece. This exped mat has served me over 100 nights sleeping in tent on my job as a wildland firefighter. I hope to get another season out of this solid piece of gear.

I've got this double rope. Really an excellent choice for trad and ice climbing for extra security. Climbing with double rope gives you quite a bit more options and Beal makes a very competitive half rope in the ice line. I use it for trad climbing too on free climb routes. You can't beat the low impact force / weight comparison. Handles really nice and smooth. Ropes are several years old and they still feel really good, no weird spots.

I have some Nepals I bought last year, which might be the closest to this model. After a few uses I have some positives and some negatives of this boot. I chose this boot bc after trying several technical alpine climbing boots, these are the most recommended AND they fit much better than anything I had used before. So they are now mine. In practice, nothing climbs better, nor gives the same type of security while front-pointing on some vertical ice (as far as leather boots go). But here's the downside, these boots are not made to spend a night out up high in -0 temps. I have cold feet and I have suffered considerably with these boots. Eventhough they have the thinsulate lining, it was like I was barefoot all day long after a night out. When I got back to the vehicle, I had lost some feeling in my big toes and it took two weeks to recover. However, I blame that one myself and not in the boot's functionality. So it still gets 4 stars.

I bought a similar model rope from Millet in 2007 and I go climbing just about every weekend at some crag here in the costa blanca where we have lots of wicked limestone. To this day I have climbing buddies that comment on this baby, how she runs, how clean the rope is, and how they wish they had bought a Millet rope for cragging.

Another great piece from Patagonia! I use this over a long sleeve capilene shirt or a merino wool base layer, and its goes on almost any ascent from alpine ascents (-5 to 10 Celcius) to multi-pitch craging. If you get caught in the wind, you will have to slip on a shell. Probably the most oustanding quality of this garment is its ability to breath and get moisture away from your body. You can actually see droplets of moisture on the outside of the garment after the hard work.
