Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this for day-trips to sport climb and I can easily fit my rope in the main compartment as well as all of my other gear (shoes, quickdraws, helmet, snacks, extra clothing, etc.) without a problem. I also have used it on short overnight backpacking trips and it's a great size for that.

It's quite comfortable. Even on hot days its design is such that there is ventilation between your back and the backpack -- thus minimizing a sweaty back. The padded hip belt and adjustable straps make walking long distances comfortable and relatively pain-free. Ideally you should get sized at a outdoor gear store to ensure you get the right pack size to ensure comfort. I'm 5'4" and the Small fits me well.

The eggplant purple color is kind of a burgundy shade.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I cannot stress how much I love these shoes. I've gone through multiple pairs over the years, actually.

My street shoe size is 7-7.5 women's and I wear a 36 which was slightly painful at first (meaning that for the first month, after bouldering for about 20 minutes I had to take a break and take them off for a bit) but they stretch out and conform to your foot quite well.

I find them great for delicate footwork, and aggressive enough for bouldering. I find them comfortable enough for sport climbing as well. Great all-around shoe.

Fit: True to size

I love these pants. I've put them through a lot -- countless hikes, rock climbing trips, and general running around. They have never let me down -- they are rugged. I bought them 2 years ago and they now are starting to show some signs of wear at the knees (small holes forming at the seams) but I like the fit and will probably wear them for a long time until they finally fall apart.

They are comfortable but good looking -- fitted but not too tight, yet not overly baggy. The ample pockets are very useful.

My waist size is 25" and I'm 5'4". The size 2 has fit me well (but it's slightly loose so it's helpful to have a belt if I'm bouldering).

The carbon color is a nice dark gray and hides dirt, chalk, and other grime relatively well.
