first of all, its a different view. expect to see more bars and arms, and if you're sitting down, knees pumping the pedals while wearing the chest harness.

second main difference: i've noticed that when i do sports of any sort, my head is remarkably still. the helmet mount gives a super smooth video. (while your torso may bounce around, your neck absorbs the shock, and your head stays still.)

also, if you don't tighten the chest harness down quite a bit, it will bounce when you hit big jumps. but even when tight, you don't really notice it there...

A medium in this shirt is AT LEAST a large in most shirts. Way too long, and the shoulders were way too wide. surprisingly, the arms were the perfect length, which suggests that it may be strangely proportioned for someone bigger than me.. otherwise: great feeling material. i have to send it back because of the size issue though.

it needs a shell if you want it to be in any way water proof. i mean, DONT wear it in rain if you don't have a shell.. and as for WHICH shell -- i don't think that there is a specific compatible shell, but more over, since it is a puffy down jacket, a nice and spacious hardshell (as opposed to form fitting) would probably be your best bet.

these shoes need to fit pretty much exactly right, because otherwise you get strange dead space, and that is NOT what you want in a slipper (since they are not adjustable..) so if you have never tried on a pair of these, then DONT BUY ONLINE (unless you don't mind paying a bunch of shipping costs if they don't work out). these shoes are super technical, a great bouldering shoe. definitely not a route shoe though - if fit right, they are super downturned and tight and would HURT to leave on for long periods of time.

these have been around for YEARS and years, and they've barely changed a bit. and for good reason. They are super warm, super waterproof, and all around just the best boot for everyday use. They are NOT a very technical boot -- long walks might get tiring, simply because they don't lace up very tight, to give a performance fit (like a mountaineering boot, for example) but for everyday use / outdoor work / short hikes, etc. they are FANTASTIC!!!

i often have a problem of excessively sweaty feet while hiking / sports. i bought these ankle socks, and was not disappointed! they are really light weight, and comfortable at the same time (unlike a thin pair of cheap cotton socks that you can buy at the store, which may be light, TOO thin...)
these did not disappoint! great buy.

this shirt is EXTREMELY light -- like a windbreaker, but more insulating. it is perfect for a fall hike. i don't use it much for layering, because i prefer stretchier material for a greater range of movement.. also, the fabric is extremely durable -- a couple times i basically battled my way through dense foliage, and this shirt doesn't have a single snag. Oh, and one last thing -- it is super compressible -- you can compact it into a tiny roll about the size of.. say.. a large cup.

amazing bouldering shoe. good sensitivity, good fit all around, especially the heel (never slips off on burly heel hooks..) my one complaint -- the toe rand on one foot began to separate after only about 2 months of 3 day a week / 3 hour a day climbing.. but my friend's pair has lasted him a good nine months, so maybe my pair was just a bad pair.. i know that la sportiva has these handcrafted, so maybe that's where some unreliability comes in..

this is a great bouldering shoe. it is very thin and sensitive, and pretty durable (although i have yet to find an evolv shoe that is as durable as a fiveten..) the material is nice -- it barely stretches at all, even after months of climbing. my only complaint, which i'm pretty sure is universal for ANY strap up shoe, is that on a big toe hook one time the metal loop that the strap goes through dug into the top of my foot.

after many other pairs of shoes, i've finally found the shoe that i am sticking with. My left foot has a rare problem -- while a very asymmetrical shoe will work perfectly on my right foot, it will cause my left big toe IMMENSE pain. these shoes are perfect -- they are not TOO asymmetrical, while still a high performance bouldering shoe. (all the other symmetrical shoes that i know of are beginner shoes, and i know ALOT of shoes, since it took me so long to find a shoe that wouldn't hurt...) Super durable -- onyx rubber is long lasting, and sticky! Perfect bouldering shoe. My favorite so far (after trying about 10 different pairs of shoes climbing, and countless others in stores..)

these are way too expensive for the shoe. these shoes are not really good for any specific thing -- which is NOT what an experienced climber usually goes for... i mean, if you are a boulderer, these shoes are too stiff, and not downturned at all. on the other hand, they are not comfortable or stiff enough for a full day of climbing, if you are a route climber. for an experienced climber with a specialty, these are NOT worth the money. buy something more specific to your need! (Also, you should EASILY be able to find a good shoe for 110 dollars...)
