Great sport climbing harness. This is a much better upgrade than the previous model. The leg loops don't fold up while your climbing like the previous one. Its also better put together. No loose threads or anything. Very lightweight, packable, and awesome for sending. Trad, Sport, this harness is great for everything. If your looking for a lightweight bomber harness look no further.

These are great shorts! not too slim but not baggy either. I love the fit. They breath really well and are great for summer cragging. Ive sat in my harness with these on for a few hors bolting routes and they are very comfortable. Im excited to try the pants for colder temps. I am 34 waist and the large was a little too big. The adjustable belt on the waist is very easy to use and keeps these snug.

This jacket is awesome. Super lightweight and compact. I was looking at the Patagonia Alpine Houdini but Im so glad I decided to go with this instead. I have used this in the cold with a fleece underneath and it was amazing. Cool morning runs, climbs and hikes are so much nicer with this. Its an incredible fit as well.

Ive used this shoe for about 3 years climbing hard 3 to 5 times a week and they hold up great. From low angled slabs, to horizontal roof climbing, these shoes are amazing. I size them one full size down from my street shoe and they fit great. Some people prefer them little bigger. It all depends on the type of climbing, and foot shape. Do not go too small. This is not a shoe that edges extremely well. That said, they do ok at the occasional edge here and there. I had a friend go about 2 sizes smaller than his street shoe and as a result they over stretched and fit terrible now. Great crack climbing shoe as their are no laces to get cut. I use these primarily for sport and have a bigger size for trad that I occasionally use.

People need to be aware that this shoe is in no way created for an all around shoe. The Five Ten CEO stated that "this shoe is not for edging so don't even try, thats not what its for." THis shoe is great for roof climbing and steep gym climbing. Thats it. I prefer the classic black team shoe. It has very soft rubber but will last a little while more and can handle the occasional edge now and then. Again, people tend to get stoked on new gear and don't realize that this shoe is only specific for polished holds, roof & gym climbing.

This rope is a work horse. I always here people rag on this rope because it only gets 6 falls. However, the sheath on this thing is bomber! it is by far the most durable solid sheath on the market. In the long run, this rope lasts longer than other ropes with more fall ratings. I have used this same rope for about 3 years of solid 3 to 4 times a week hard sport climbing. The rope's manufacture recommends retiring it much earlier than that. I inspect this thing all the time and it truly lasts for a long time. I just got a second one with this dry treatment and will never get anything other than a dry treated Sterling rope. Great product, takes big whippers, clips very nicely, looks super rad and hold's up.
Another note to mention is people tend to complain about how dirty these things get. I have found with using the GRI GRI 2 that is not an issue. Get the new GRI GRI as it handles much better with these range of ropes. The dirt is much easier to clean that the original, thus eliminating the dirty issue.
