theanab's Bio

I am a child of mountains and desert, born to thrive in thin air and the sometimes harsh, always changing beauty of them both.

I've had this pack for years now, for both fishing and as a very small daypack. It rocks. It's waterproof, so you don't have to worry about things getting wet if you happen to fall into a stream during a crossing or just while fishing. It's crazy the amount of stuff that you can cram into what seems like a small space, and it's very comfortable to wear (I use it as a lumbar pack), even when you've got it loaded with 2 L of water as well as everything else.

I bought these shoes back in March--my first pair of climbing shoes, after climbing in gym shoes for 3 months. I can't say enough good things about them. I bought them 1.5 sizes down from my street shoe size, so the initial break in period was a bit rough (read taped up toes for a while...) but once I got them broken in, they were amazing. They did stretch a little--I bought them to fit my smaller foot, and now, they are perfect (although I still recommend bringing a pair of other shoes for the belay/approach to keep your feet happy if you buy them small.) The construction allows them to mold to your feet, making for a shoe that I don't usually tie, unless I know I'm going to be using a heel hook. In the gym or outside, I can stand on stuff that my friends with their trad/not so aggressive shoes can't touch, and be comfortable there.
I can't recommend these enough. They're absolutely worth the money.
