One thing that is not mentioned about this bag, is that it comes with a bag belt. That is, it comes with it's own small, self clipping, bag belt so that you can wear the bag around your waist and switch it's position on your body from behind to the side or the front with a flick of your arm. This is very helpful in case you need to have your back to the wall and you don't want your chalk bag getting in the way of your butt.

Great, high quality bag, no frills, no spills.

Pretty much the exact same harness as the men's Ophir with a one small difference: you can tighten the leg loops. A self cinching draw has been added to the leg loops on this harness. Other than that, same as the Ophir. That is to say this harness is extremely comfortable, user friendly, and high quality. It fits true to measurements and makes the wife feel happy about climbing safely.

Would definitely recommend.

Just started climbing at my local rock gym (Source, in Vancouver, WA) and bought this bad boy as a cheap, starter harness. It turns out, there is nothing cheap about it; it is solid in every way, comfortable, and extremely user friendly (no fitting guessing games).

There is only one, self cinching buckle to tighten at the waist, no doubling back on it because it is self-cinching. The legs are kept semi-tight by some strong elastic in a one-size-fits-all kind of way. The four gear loops are super accessible on the wall.

Overall, very safe, comfortable and high quality.

This is a great Jacket for the Northwest. Warm, snuggly fleece, tough as nails construction. It breaths well and sheds my sweat great. I wear a large (5'10'' 205 lbs muscular build) and the sleeves are about an inch too long...other than the sleeves it fits extremely well. If its particularly cold out I throw on my Arc'teryx Accelero Jacket underneath this Gamma and that seems to be a pair that can't be beat. I work for the Forest Service maintaining trails and this puppy stands up to hard labor like a champ.

Excellent jac. I found mine on Ebay for 129$...check that out if you can.

It boils pretty quick. It lights itself. It self packs all of it's components within the pot. It has a burner attachment that turns it into a burner like a pocket rocket or whisperlight so that you can cook with non-jetboil pots/pans. It has a nifty temp guide on the side to tell you when its boiling. It has a cup with easy to read measurements on the side in CUPS. It's durable. Buy it.

I own the full size version of this pad and I gotta say...plush! If you don't mind the extra weight over a foam pad this is a great place to start. You might be able to find it with some patience on steepandcheap.com for over half off like I did. No holes, packs down tight, fairly light, solid pad.

MSR, I love you.

No more pumping, easy to backflow. Lots of water while I go do other things. Save your arm and be the savior of your friends. Everyone you camp with will want one of these puppies after their trip with you. Not recommended for very silty/dusty water as it is going to take you a long time to backflush and *may* cost you the price of a new filter (haven't tried this, but the microfilaments are just too tiny for silt).
