I have worn these around the house and not yet around the campfire as intended but they are comfy as can be. I wear a 9.5 in sneakers, but a 9 is a bit roomy. I was expecting a tight feeling for the first few days but it is rather comfortable. I don't know if this is incorrect fitting, but I will keep em. I am sure i could have purchased an 8 though....mayybe.

this will keep me warm in low temps, but i am most happy w/ the fit and feel of the jacket. very solid. This layers perfectly w/ my MHW Dragon softshell like gme27...said below. I can't wait to hit the BC. Glad i returned my previous synthetic for this one.

ps i got the black and it does not look like a trash bag. very good looking piece

I wear a 9.5 naturally. Does this boot come in half sizes? Should I just size up to 10? Looking for something to rock around the campfire at night. I wonder if buying a 9 would be fine since there will be some stretch and settling of the inside.

apparently it is wise to size down w/ sheepskin boots. i have ordered the 9.

...for the rain. bought the day it started raining and haven't looked back. awesome breathability and stretch. zweld is serious stuff. don't think i will have to worry about any wind. kind of expensive, but well worth it. I am 5'10" 165lbs athletic build and a large fits perfect. i can layer my synthetic down easily. i think the one here is last seasons because the chest pocket on my Dragon has the logo and the name embroidered on it. that is probably the only difference.

the description says belay slave, but in what condition because this sweater is super thin. i expected a little more from MHW. other than that the waistband was super loose and didn't even form to my body. it's like my sweater was trying to avoid my body. i had to send it back. i will stick to the MHW performance gear.

they weren't joking about this being light! big enough to eat cereal/soup and it wakes you up by filling up w/ a ton of coffee! I have also used this on top of a proprane burner and it worked well. no discoloring or warping. this cup is my new camping companion. love the little mesh sack that it comes in too, perfect for traveling so that it will not get damaged in your pack or if you want to combine other things w/ it for packing.

Just came back from Bishop trip and it just happened to be what the locals call "January weather" the low was 9 degrees. Crazy arctic winds were blowing and I felt fine. Jacket worked well. Didn't do any belaying which didn't matter because it does not have the belay pass thru pocket. Bummer cuz it was the selling point for me. That is the only thing that is making me consider returning it and trying maybe a high down fill perhaps. This jacket works well in 30-40 degrees as an outer layer though. Just thought i was getting the belay aspect.
