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

These tights far exceeded my expectations. They keep me training over a wide range of temps--in the 20's with knee warmers underneath and all they way up to when the temps at end of ride have warmed to 50. I've used them on winter alpine climbs when the weather has warmed up another to let me climb up to nearby ski resorts in November. Great wind protection and very quick drying. These are designed for high energy output training--they were never designed for rain wear.

Durable and well fitting. I'm 6 foot and 170 and the large fits well--I may have gotten away with a medium.

Love these!!

This is a great jacket. I bought it as a fall-back shelter for prolonged outdoor adventures or for days when I'm out in the weather all day for work or play. I bought an XL, bigger than my normal L, to fit over the other layers I would be wearing.

It is too warm for hiking or climbing, but works well for camp, belay, or delays on the trail.

After two winter seasons of use I found it to be plenty durable; use normal cautions when wearing.

The other day at work I was stuck out in sub 20 degree weather for an entire day. At the end of the day when I was exausted and chilled, I put it on and powered through to the end, cosy and warm.

The jacket covers me to below my butt, has a great hood, and the arms are plenty long. Good use of down--no cold spots for me.

I would recomment it to a friend.

Great rap gloves. I use these for canyoneering, for belaying when sport climbing. They are well made and durable--the double thickness leather in the palm, thumb, and index finger area works well. I love the carabiner hole in the wrist portion and carry them on my harness when needed. I normally wear a size L glove and these, size L, are a tiny bit big on me which I don't mind at all.

This rope has performed very well so far. Tough and longlasting as promised. This Spring I used the C-IV 9mm with small groups on two trips to Moab, Utah. After four canyons (including a 160 foot rappel in Rock Of Ages Canyon) with multiple raps in each canyon (times four people), the rope still looks great. A little fuzz here and there from pulling the rope over the sandstone, but otherwise, it looks great. We all used a Pirana rappel device--great kit, especially for the heavier (190 pound) climbers.

The C-IV is lightweight and knots well--great static line. I'm going to buy a 120 footer to supplement my two 200 footers and I'll buy the C-IV again. I'm completely happy with this rope.
