does anyone have a photo front/side or description of how this jacket fits around your head, does it come over your chin or below, how well does it seal out the wind around your head etc. the silver colour looks blueish, is that photo realistic, anything else to mention? a photo in its stuff sack next to something would be cool... to see the packed size, if anyone could be bothered, thanks in advance... rich

i had one of these ropes for 3 years till i retired it, and i climb quite abit at least 2-3 times per week. this rope has exceptional wear resistance and doesnt fluff up, tho it did end up being about 11mm and stiff as a cable. i would way prefer a cable than a fluffy rope, this rope i highly recommend, you'll find it hard to wear out, it'l just be too stiff to use.

this is a great sport climbing harness, really comfy to take falls on and hang in, you hardly feel like you are wearing anything while climbing. its not so good for trad climbing when you have to carry alot of gear as it buckles under the weight and is uncomfortable, the angled gear loops tangle ur gear if u load up more than half the length, i still love this harness for sport climbing, but bought the new bd chaos for trad, which is also super light and comfy to hang in, gear loops are better for carrying weight, if u just want to buy 1 harness to cover all bases get the bd, but if you want the best sport climbing harness, this is it!!

hey guys, this hoody is ok, definitely not worth the full price, its very thin and not really any more wind resistant than a normal fleece. it is good under a short waist cut shell as it is nicely fitted and cut short at the waist also so it doesn't stick out. i prefer merino to layer so this jacket doest get to see any real action only gets worn around town.
