Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 167 lbs
Size Purchased: large

What this is, is about the same thing as a high end thin sweater...the look, the feel...very similar material. The difference is, I won't get hot in this one. It breathes well, and actually keeps me cool. I haven't tried to let it keep me warm, because I can't decide if I like the size, so I might return this one. I can't decide if I want it a little loose or tighter. I'm 5'11", 167lb, 41 chest, 31 waste. I went with the large (based on the reviews). It's loose all over and a little long in the arms...the size I would get if buying a sweater to wear out...so it looks good and feels good. Not like wearing spandex...no struggle to get it off. For me, it's true to size for what it's made to be. A base-layer...which is why I bought it...as a base-layer for backpacking, and its right in that size, where it's hard to decide if I would like it better if it were a little tighter...maybe I would like a not so tight base-layer. Any advice? Does anyone prefer a flowing base-layer over a "next to skin"?

I got into these shoes to replace another pair of NorthFace approach shoes I had gotten a while ago, and couldn't find. Like most "rock" shoes, I really love the metal shank in the arch of the shoe (which hlep when walking over angled rocks). They are a little less flexible than the last pair I had, BUT...I have taken them up with me rock climbing a couple times and I am not at all disappointed in how they grip the rocks on scrambles.

This was my first chaulk bag...and I shouldn't have gotten it on line. The bag is quite shallow, and I have issues of chaulk escaping, and getting my hand comfortably inside is not the easiest task. Also, the strap is only removable if you cut...which is rediculous. I did this because I wanted to beener it to my harness instead of using the strap...I cut, but now I can't really go back. If you are going to get this bag, I'd suggest getting a sock instead of using free chaulk.
