Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just recently bought 4 of these carabiners. They are high quality and the wire gate is stiff enough to be safe but soft enough to be convenient. They have a 24 kilonewton major axis strength. I decided to look up the conversion of kilonewtons to pounds: these carabiners have a weight limit of over 5,000 pounds! You could support the weight of a VW bug on one of these things! That’s amazing!

This thing is great because you can build grip strength and watch TV at the same time. Do be sure to read the instructions. It is a simple device, but there is a right way and a wrong way to use it. I’ve already noticed improved grip strength after just a short time. More importantly for me, my carpal tunnel does not feel as strained as it used to after climbing of any other activity requiring lots of grip. I would recommend this thing to anyone, not just climbers

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bottles are great and always have been. They last for years ! I love that they are BPA free because I love to fill them with hot water to make tea. It’s good to know that no nasty chemicals are contaminating my tea. I bought two of the glow in the dark variety. It is SO COOL. Never lose your water bottle in the dark again! If you leave them under a strong light for a while, they will glow quite brightly for several hours. This prompted me to look up how the glow in the dark plastic works. According to Wikipedia, it collects light and stores it temporarily. It then emits that energy slowly. I didn’t know this, but glow in the dark plastic doesn’t emit its own light, it just collects it and then slowly emits it. So ya. This bottle is both BPA free AND radiation free. I love them

For years, I have only run in Brooks shoes. I have flat arches and I'm prone to plantar fasciitis. The arch support in these shoes is adequate for my feet. The tread on these shoes is really great. They stick to any surface. If you are looking for a trail running shoe, this is for you. They are also just fine for a road runner shoe. They are very stiff however. I think this is a good thing because I weigh 220 pounds and I need a tough shoe to prevent me from hurting my knees. I will buy this shoe again. I have already bought two pairs!

I bought this shoe for bouldering, and I am very happy with it. The Velcro straps make it easy to pull on and off very quickly, and they never come loose during climbing. I have found that they can stick to even the smallest rock formations. They fit my foot perfectly, and that is saying something because I have very flat arches. All my life, I have dealt with arch pain and plantar fasciitis. I need arch support inserts in my running shoes and hiking boots. In the past, I have always experienced arch pain in my climbing shoes, and I had just accepted that arch pain was going to be a necessary price to pay if I wanted to climb. This is no longer the case. I can climb until my hands and arms wear out and not experience any foot pain. I would highly recommend this shoe. It is definitely worth the price. When my current pair wears out, I will certainly buy this shoe again.
