Only climbed with it a few times so far, but it's perfect. It's a chalk bag, so it doesn't have a whole lot of complicated purposes, and the design is pretty tried and true. Drawstring is nice, opening is plenty for my hands, the belt works, and it's really really pretty. Love it as much as you can love a chalk bag.

When you're cooking inside a tent the most important thing to look for is ceiling ventilation and of course space enough for the flame. If you can ventilate from the top (with double zippers on the fly or ceiling vents found in 4-season tents for just that reason) then you should be in good shape as far as carbon monoxide poisoning goes. With a whisperlite you're bound to get at least a little bit of flare-up when you light the stove so you'll need to make sure you have adequate space so nothing catches fire. It looks like the trekking-pole vestibule here would be fine for space but I can't tell if you could vent from the top.

All that being said, I've been stuck in a blizzard in the Sierras with a 3-season Sierra Designs tent with no upper vent and a pretty awful rainfly door set-up for inside cooking and we managed ok. Cooked once in the tent itself but smelled too much gas and needed to vent pretty quickly. Then cooked in the foot-well we had dug outside the door in the snow and with the door open a crack and that worked fine as well. Desperate situations call for some creative measures, and as long as you know what you're doing you should be fine. I'd check and see if there's ceiling vents or if you can open the vestibule door from the top before planning on an indoor kitchen.

You found them. Best slippers ever made! I got these slippers for my boyfriend for his birthday. We live in Tahoe and I don't think he's taken them off since I got them for him. Perfect for casual use - around the house, taking the dog for a walk on the beach, getting the mail, etc. He even wore them as camp shoes in Joshua Tree and did some rock scrambling in them! The sole is versatile and the fact that they come up above the heel (not like a mule style shoe) makes them so much more useful since they don't fall off. He says they're the warmest shoes he's ever put on. Seemed pretty true to size, maybe a half size big.
