WOW
5 5

i climb towers for a living and everyone that i work with wears carthartt winter gear. temps can get down to 0 with windchill of minus 30 up there. if they aren't freezing to death they look like the kid from a christmas story.i love the shoulder straps, elastic and very easy to get on. small inside pocket and two larger pockets on the chest that are perfect for gloves when you need to stow for technical work. a frozen tower will usually tear my clothes to pieces. these bibs allow for a phenomenal range of motion, 150% wind/water protection, and weigh in at only 22oz. oh, and i usually tear other bibs up in one winter on the razor-like frozen towers... one winter and counting without a single leak. it truly blows my mind.SECOND TO NONE.

i climb towers for a living and a while back i switched from lineman boots to approach shoes. la sportiva shoes are comfy on the iron due to their super-rigid sole but tend to fall apart much faster than other less comfortable shoes. how rigid is the quest sole?

i climb towers for a living and the metolius belay glove is the only glove that stands up to my abuse.

i use all three variations for the hot to cold seasons. the insulated works for 20+ conditions but sometimes i throw a hand warmer under the velcro for extra warmth.

the first to go on this glove is the stitching, especially at the finger tips and the double palm.

my job requires a lot of high speed rope work and this glove has never failed me. the double palm is extremely resistant to rope burn or tearing. the velro wrist keeps the glove secure and stays out of the way.

i only wish that metolius would make a version for colder conditions
