zero to hero
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

First I have to give a big thanks to Kyle Livingston at backcountry for his advice and help with this purchase. Backcountry is first class with their service and they never let Me down. Now this bike is sick, I have only had the bike a short time but I am blown away by how it rides. It makes me a better rider than I actually am, I find my self cleaning lines I wouldn't even think about before. For me the most important aspect in a bike should be the fun factor and the hightower has fun to spare.

I bought this stove used about 7 years ago and it has given me absolutely NO problems at all. Its light weight (about 3oz), its reliable as it gets, and its affordable. If you want to cook like the Gordon Ramsey of the backcountry this is not the stove for you. But if you are more concerned with weight and space and need to boil water quick this is your stove.

Cadillac Backpack
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Why have you been driving that old beater car with no a/c and a busted window? So you can buy the caddie of backpacks. This thing has it all and rides really nice on your back. I have used it on trips up to 6 days (50L atmos) and still have a little room to spare. If your going to eat ramen noodles so you can save up money to sit in a tent and eat ramen noodles you might as well splurge on a nice pack.

Couples Therapy
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

You had better get along with your tent mate in this thing, after 5 or so days of backpacking and no shower this tent can feel a bit claustrophobic. How ever My wife and I have used it for multiple days and we are still married. I'm 6ft 175lbs and she's 5ft 6in and though its a bit snug the weight savings in your pack are worth it.

I don't know why these tools get a bad rap, I love them! I have climbed with Nomics, Monsters, vipers, Reactors, Quarks. If I had to choose just one pair of tools it would be these. I'm not saying that the others suck, just that I like these the best.

I wear a 11 street shoe and 11.5 in evolv climbing shoes ( I have 2 pair of evolv's) but I had to go with a 12 for the geshido lace up. Once I got the sizing worked out the shoe is great, five stars all the way. Good for everything from trad to sport to the gym. Just remember to size up a bit and you'll love 'em. And they are made in the USA!
