Nicest pair of underwear I've ever owned. Comfy and good for actively movin' around and stuff like that. No access hole/fly, but you get used to pulling up a leg hole to pee through. Or, just yank the band down--but the elastic is really solid and this leg hole method is easier.

Seems expensive for underwear, but there's a reason for it. They are bombproof, easy to care for and clean, perform well, and make your junk look huge.

Thanks Backcountry for the gift certificate that inspired me to buy these bad boys!

These shoes are very aggressive--downturned, asymmetrical toe, tight tight tight. I've heard 5.10s are great for durability--so far they seem tough. The rubber is amazing, sticks to everything.

For sizing, I went down a half size from my 12 street shoe. At first I tried a 10.5, but they were just too ridiculous. The 11.5s I have now are still tight and painful, and I'm still fighting through the blisters, but it will be worth it once they fully conform to my feet. They have already started to do so a bit. I have a friend who wears an 11.5 street shoe and wears 9 dragons, but I think he's crazy. I would suggest going with a half size below your street shoe if you have a relatively normal or narrow width foot. Try them on if you can--but remember these shoes aren't for walking around in, they are meant for climbing steep, technical faces.
