Great jacket to wear in town or out on the trail. Provides that extra comfort that keeps you warm when you need that little something. This is my primary piece of outer wear. I like the Nano Puff instead of down for those damper days. I hike/climb about 200 days a year. I only gave it four stars due to a reticent zipper on my original jacket. Nice folks at Backcountry did a super fast replacement so now I'm a happy camper again.

I purchased these crampons primarily for vertical waterfall ice. I had previously been climbing with a pair of crampons which had horizontal front points and decided that the vertical front points would hold the ice better. I was correct in my assumption. My feet feel more secure with the Cyborgs and as a result my climbing has improved.
The reason I only gave the crampons 4 stars is that I haven't been able to get a tight, secure fit with the crampon. After a couple of climbs the "clip" on the front which is secured with the strap loosens which allows the crampon front points to become crooked. If I stop climbing and retighten the straps they seem to remain straight. Bottom line is that they don't secure as well as those with a front bail. Even given this problem I'm satisfied with their performance. I have a small foot (7.5) so I may just be inbetween secure fittings.

A great back for those multiday alpine trips. Carries very comfortably while allowing adequate room for those extra winter garmets. Ideal for summit day as it shrinks down to be used as a day pack. Those nasty bear cannisters fit easily into the top for your Sierra adventures. Give this pack a try and you shouldn't be disappointed.
