I bought these shoes for my wife, because they're pretty
similar to the one's she needs to replace. Much lighter than her old shoes.Nice heavy tread. Shoes fit to size. But the
tongue is not as well padded, causing pain issues.Had to return.

Mammut is one of my favorite ropes. I bought this rope because of the middle mark design,but was disappointed. I know how dirty ropes can get and the single black and white strand is just not enough contrast for a middle mark. I'll be going back to a Mammut duodess , bi color weave design, where at a glance you'll know the center. I returned the rope immediately.

The Lezyne Super GPS is a great bike computer. for the price it gives a lot of bang for its buck. Set up on the bike was easy. Toggling through the computer for set-up and stats was initially a bit cumbersome, but easy to figure out. Uploading information to Strava is a cinch. I would highly recommend this computer to my friends!

Excellent little shovel.Breaks down easily into two pieces.
The handle length is short enough to fit nicely into my ski pack with out pushing against the zipper. The blade is
narrow enough and fits well width wise. Initially I thought
it would be too short after assembly to handle well, but was proven wrong when I used it on large snow pile. T-handle is comfortable with or without gloves. Accidentally ordered
the shark tooth version, not sure if that will come in handy for ice(?)or whatever. But did really well digging a snow pit.

I 've had a tall one, and now I got the 12oz. They're pretty nice, keep things cold. I use the small one as a milk container for my daily allotment of cereal at work. The tall one for coffee. Both keep temps pretty adequately, but they don't take abuse. I had to return one, because it arrived dented. They do dent easily, and the powder coat finish does chip. My older one, the finish is starting to wear, where I daily place into my cup holder. I'm pretty careful how I handle it, but the bottom edge is chipping.Not designed to knock around or throw into a backpack.

This is my go-to water bottle. Finally had to replace
an older one whose lid melted on the heating element in the dishwasher. What can I say? BPA FREE! Standard mouth size
for water purifiers. Holds 750ml of wine. Survives well in the
freezer when making drink concoctions or infusing Vodka.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this pack for my wife, who is 5 foot tall with a torso measurement of 15 inches, to do day ski trips. Even though
this pack is seemed the same size as the dawn patrol pack(s/m 23liter), it seems to pack more with ease. There could be a little more webbing on the hip belt for cinching.
There's a little bit of air gap between the pack and shoulder,
wearing a down jacket fills the space somewhat, but I think once she uses it often enough she'll get the straps dialed in.
If not some padding can be added behind the snowboard carrying flap. One little nuisance is the width of the shoulder
strap, being 3"wide, and hitting the arm. Could be a little more contoured in front. My wife is going to fold over 1/2''
and sew it down.

I bought this pack for my wife, whose "lot in life" is never finding a
pack that fits. She's 5'0" with a torso length of 15". I got her the sm/med which fit comfortably in shoulders and hip (Dawn Patrol 32 is too big). The shoulder straps are 1/2" narrower than most packs, thereby not cutting into the shoulders. The hip belt has more webbing to cinch. The sm is actually 23 liters and has a nice narrow profile. Elbows have less chance of hitting the pack when using poles. If you're going light it's great, but for what my wife wants to carry it is too small. Biggest complaint is the location of the zipper for the main compartment. It's on the back panel, no access for a friend to pull something out, you need to take the pack off and the shoulder straps get in the way. The zipper has a slight curve (which makes the profile nice and narrow), but if you are overstuffing the pack, it is hard to zip up. Also, in the avy tool pocket, a 10" wide shovel blade barely fits, and everything needs to be less than 17.5" long (BD 230 probe barely fits). There is enough room for skins in this pocket.

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: 30 and 32 waist

Initially got the 30 waist, thinking it might be snug in the waist.
But it runs small and was extremely tight in the crotch area,waist
size was snug but I could have lived with it.
Next, I got the 32 waist. It was loose in the waist, but the rear leg cut was weird. I know the leg area was suppose to be loose, but
when I looked and turned there was so much material that created this horrible flap down the backside. It sucked.

Fit: True to size


Well, they only squeak on clean floors. Fits comfortable, true to size, in the sense they are comparable to other manufacture's sizes. Used on the trail, around the house, and on city streets. I was a bit disappointed when the shoe slipped, and I was expecting more "bite" on a rock. If you concentrate on foot placement, no problem. But if you're casually about foot placement on the rock, they will slip. A lot more than expected for
the sticky soles they advertised. My biggest complaint is they lasted only 3 months before the rand started to come apart. Shoes should last much longer and not require the customer to glue the shoe. I believe, if you flex the shoe a lot, like on approaches, the rand will delaminate. Even not wearing the shoe you see the delamination in process. Majorly disappointed.
5.10 should add a tube of glue to each box.
