Familiarity: I've used it several times

They "work" in the sense that they wick moisture and dry quickly. They also ride up my business and give me a wedgie. In the past I've purchased the light weight brief and I thought these were actually the same. They are not. The cut is much higher up the leg on the sides. They aren't quite worth returning, but I won't be buying them again.

I think this may be the best rock rope on the market. My buddies and I have dubbed it the Anaconda because of it's green color and pattern. The pattern makes the half-way mark 100% clear. The easy, flexible handle of this rope makes it feel like a 9.8mm, while protecting and lasting as a 10.1 mm should. Is it more expensive? Yes. If you don't care about having the perfect piece of gear for your pursuits...fine. Get a cheaper rope. I did that in the past and I still climbed. I just didn't enjoy it as much as I do now.

The weight of this is perfect for running in 32 - 45 deg weather, or going uphill in the backcountry in cold weather. Wool is more absorbent than ploy, so expect the sweat to wick a little less effectively. That said, it's also not made from oil - recycled plastic or not. Plus, it doesn't smell at all. I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs and I feel like this shirt is just a little on the big side. An XS might have been a better choice.

The shoe performs well for me. Good on trail running. When it got wet, it didn't keep my feet quite as dry as I would have liked. I live in Seattle, so we get a lot of rain. It's very stable and rugged. I wore my last pair in India a lot while traveling and they took a beating and still looked good / lasted a long time. They aren't great for climbing approaches as I find the friction isn't as good as some other climbing-specific approach shoes.
