Very supportive and breathable. I have yet to get them wet, but it won't be long till that happens. I have run around in the Southern heat and I don't find them hot at all. So far I have loved them, but I am only giving four stars just because I haven't had them long and I want to see how well they hold up over time. I would still recommend.

I was amazed at how dry my hands felt the first time using this chalk. My hands constantly sweat and this stuff instantly dried them. I feel like it doesn't provide quite as much grip as Black Diamond, but it definitely makes my hands feel more dry.

I have used it on my pack I wear around campus and for day hikes and a two year old hardshell Columbia jacket and it has worked beautifully on both. I never have to worry about rain getting me wet. A definite must have if you want to restore an old jacket's repellency.

I have been completely satisfied with these boots thus far. I am an overpronate and the boots did make the outside of my leg where the uppers rubbed a little sore, but after a ten mile hike they broke in rather nicely and I have not had that problem since. They have wonderful grip, even on wet rocks. They will definitely keep you dry. I stood in a creek for about twenty seconds and never got wet. I wear a 10.5 in street shoes and ordered 10.5 and they leave a little room still, at least enough for a heavy weight wool sock to be comfortable. The leather does take scratches pretty easily, but that's not really a big concern. Great boot overall.

Overall, they are solid quickdraws. My college's rock wall provides these to use, so I have only used them on an indoor wall, but they have held up very well. They have always been easy to clip though a little on the bulky side compared to some others I have used, but still a strong quickdraw.

Definitely will keep you dry and the wind out. I sat by a fire all day when that recent snowstorm blanketed the South and it kept me dry the whole time. The brimmed hood is nice because it keeps it's shape even in the wind. I wish it had a couple more pockets on the inside of the liner for throwing gloves, but that's not the end of the world. The venting system is nice, it goes from about the middle of the ribs on me, I'm 5'11", all the way to about the middle of the bicep. It has kept me warm down into the 20s. Great all-around jacket.

Great jacket. I love the 3-in-1 jacket system. I had a few issues with the hood staying velcroed, and after about a year, the outer rain jacket lost most of it's ability to repel the rain. I used some Nikwax Tech Wash and it brought it's ability to repel right back. I do like the big pockets on the inside which are great for throwing gloves in. The liner looks and functions great, I was never cold. And the two liners together couldn't be warmer, even when the temperature dropped into the teens.

I wear a 33 and ordered the medium. Maybe I just wear my harness higher than most, but I have to tighten it down almost all the way. Chat with one of the experts on here, they have thrown a free return in for me a couple times when I couldn't decide on what size I should get for things.

Amazing rope especially considering the price. Not too bulky for sport climbing which is nice towards the top of routes. I have had a few friends go buy this rope after using mine. Never had any problems with kinks or jams while belaying. I do wish it had a halfway mark, but that's not really a reason to complain. I would highly recommend getting this.

I got the regular at 5'11" and 175lbs, which didn't leave me much wiggle room, but still fit me fine. Kept me warm all night and the foot vent is pretty stellar because I hate getting hot feet. I would say splurge for a down if you have the money. I returned it because I found the down one for cheaper somewhere else.
