PraAna is one of my favorites. These pants are nice, soft, comfy, sized accordingly, stretchy, and conforming to the body's natural movement. Also very lengthy, but that allows me to fold them up to the knees, which I do anyway, if I am climbing or doin yoga. Thanks BC>

This pant is well suited to any extreme weather. With only a light weight base layer on screamin' cold days, they endure and insulate far better than any other pant I've owned. The fit is right-on, just enough room to give you that personal space, whether it be trekking, boot-packing, hucking cliffs, or aprés-ing, without leaving you looking like a sloppy teenager who seems to buy their get-ups in the big-and-tall section. I've gotten countless complements on these, to boot. Well done, again, Cloudveil, hats off to you. And also to BC for providing them at a stellar value!...

I'm a huge promoter of Mountain Hardware, but this baselayer I am not a fan of, personally. I understand where they were going with the seamless construction, but the fit is just not there. Super tight through the thighs with an extended crotch space, which in-turn immobilzes ones movement. They would do better to create a 'pouch' for men. Felt like I was wearing a skirt with leggings, or something. Needless to say, I am returning this item for an Under Armour baselayer pant, hope that works instead. I can say, I own North Face's Charcoal Bamboo XTC baselayer pant, and they are SWEET!....

I've had my rope, 70mDry, for more than a month now, and it's a beast. Still gets a few kinks here and there, but the overall break in time was easy. Haven't take any huge whippers on it, but I've had the opportunity to load it fairly heavily and the dynamic properties are well suited. I was a little skeptical about the fluorescent markers, but i've come to love them. You really can fell them run through your hand on belay and on rap, and they always catch my eye when they're coming close. Of course NO marker is a substitute for proper safety skills. Thanks Backcountry for solid gear and expedited shipping times...

I bought my Diretissima about 3 weeks ago, and this pack seems to be indestructible. I've done a lot of climbing with it, and it holds all my gear including a 70m rope, so it has plenty of space with just a couple of useful, zippered pockets. Also has a compartment for a large hydration bladder, perfect adjustment straps, and sits well on the back for long approaches. I've been caught in a little rain and it seems to hold up well to water. Very happy and confident with this pack. Great buy!
