Mountain U-Haul
4 5

I really like this pack and have taken it on Elbrus, Vinson, and Denali as well as other trips. This bag is waterproof (almost) and can carry more than you can and comfortably. It is also extremely durable and can handle crampons and axes being thrown around with it easily.
My only gripe is that on all of these bags that I have seen, the plastic piece that's supposed to give you head room has broken off. It is ridiculously flimsy and that's why I didn't give 5 stars.
The photo is me on the 16 ridge of Denali's west buttress doing a double carry. Pack was STUFFED! with about 95 lbs.

I have spantiks and have used them on Elbrus and Denali. Great warm boot. I am also heading to aconcagua this year and am planning on taking them as well. Other boots need super gaiters for aconcagua but not spantiks because they are really super warm. For sizing, I wear a 12 in nikes and usually between an 11.5 to a 12 in everything else. For long slogs of climbs like elbrus and aconcagua a size 13 (47 euro) fits perfectly for all but the most technical of climbs (I can still climb up to a WI5 very comfortably in them with only minor heel slippage. If your planning something technical only going up a half size would be better.
