Hey Jason,

If you have joint issues I strongly suggest you check out the brand Hoka One One. They are rugged, lightweight and guide your step ergonomically. There are a good number of people who spend the day on their feet in our warehouse who have started to switch to Hokas while they work and they have noticed a difference.

Hey Dave,

What's your inseam length? The regular inseam on these pants is listed in the size chart if you want to compare. Otherwise if you need some help give us a call or chat in and one of our Gearheads should be able to find something that will work for you.

Samuel,

Perfect 4-season is not how I would describe this tent. If you are camping in cold conditions where you might get a little snow then you could get away with using a tent like this. However if you are going to be in the high mountain in snowy conditions the I would expect these polls to collapse or snap under the high winds and heavy snowfall that you could experience. Also, a good 4 season tent will have proper ventilation that will eliminate any internal frost build up as you r body heat warms up the inside of the tent.

Honestly, if you are really looking for a 4 season tent to use in the high mountains you will want to make a proper investment and expect to spend a minimum of $300.

Height and weight are unfortunately very poor indicators as to how a jacket would fit. It's very possible that you could have an apple bottom on top of stilts and we end up putting you in a jacket that is WAY too big. Norrona provides a very detailed size chart with their products, I suggest focusing on your chest and sleeve measurements and comparing them against the size chart just above the Add To Cart button. If you have any further questions please chat in or give us a call and one of our Gearheads will be happy to help you out.

Hey Eric,

Unlike sleeping bags there isn't a standard thermal test mainly because unlike sleeping bags with the use of a jacket there are too many uncontrollable factors.

Besides, this jacket is more for for keeping wind and rain out and if you want to keep warm you are going to have to wear the appropriate layers underneath.

Hey Molly,

Size medium has just been in high demand and we haven't been able to keep up with it. Looks like we just sold out a couple days ago so it might be a while yet until we can get that Edelrid to ship us more.

This being a half rope cannot be used by itself and I would not suggest using this as a gym rope (as you would need buy a second rope anyway). However, double check with your gym to see if they allow you to climb using a double rope technique. You should be good on length though if you can get a 40 meter rope as most gyms walls are a lot shorter than 60 ft but double check on their wall height as well just to be safe.
