Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I bought these for my girlfriend, who has a narrow foot, and she loves them. She has taken them out hiking and backpacking and has had good experiences with both. She has a narrow low volume foot so the extra adjustment and the lacing to the toe helps her to get the perfect fit. The sole is rigid enough to support a mid-weight pack and they stick to the rocks when scrambling.

As the title says, the harness is not elaborate but does the job. The webbing is wide so it is more comfortable than using standard 1in webbing to make a chest harness. Black Diamond also makes quality gear so I expect this harness to standup to whatever I throw at it. The harness also has a great deal of adjustment and I have a large chest with a tall torso and was still able to get a good fit without any trouble. No tie-in for the back but it isn't needed. Using the tie-in in the front works perfectly well by itself.

This seems like great rope. It is static line so its not a lead climb rope but can be used for top rope, which is what I will sometimes use it for. It is nice and light but has a great KN rating even though it is not huge in diameter. The sheath seems pretty rugged but the rope is soft enough to easily tie knots in it though. I expect to get a great deal of use out of it with some care.

This harness seems to be very study and is quite comfortable. It is heavier than a Mammut that I have but it has the added attachment as well. The material is quite rugged and should last many times of use with no problems. The only thing that could be improved on in a future model is to move away from the double back buckles, they are bomb proof but there are others that are just as strong and provide easier adjustment, just a small point though.

Mountain Hardwear usually has good quality stuff anyway but I do really like this shirt. I purchased two different colors and the colors seem to be accurate as to what is in the picture. I ordered a size bigger than usual so that it would be loose fitting and it is not really loose so my normal size may have been a bit small across the chest. The shirt, although long sleeve, is not heavy and should be great even in hot summer days. The vents that are in the shirt also add great ventilation to the shirt.

I purchased this pack to replace a MacPac Torre that I used for several years with great success but it wore out, as things tend to do. I like the suspension that the pack has and is very comfortable to wear, for me at least, and still has some adjustment left, even though I am 6' 2". The pack holds weight well and expands past what I thought that it might. I haven't taken it out for an extended trek yet but anticipate that it will work well and intend to use it for a backpacking trip through the Mojave Desert in the spring. It can hold two water reservoirs, one on each side, and each side can hold up to three liters depending on the design of the reservoir. With it expanded, I can fit all my gear in it including a three person tent. If I was to need to pack it for very long treks, I would have to drop back to my one person tent but not a big deal. Material seems to be rugged and should stand up to some good abuse. Lots of adjustment on the suspension allows for personalized fit and better weight distribution. I would definitely recommend this to a friend for longer trek use.

The pot and top, which can double as a skillet, are very lightweight and do not take up much space in a pack. Using the top as a skillet does not allow for much but is large enough for single person use. The pot is large enough to boil enough water for two dehydrated meals easily and can easily fit canned items for cooking. This may not be big enough to cook meals for an entire group but with as light weight as it is, everyone in the group could have their own.
