I am a big union fan overall and have had some other bindings from this company in the past... and these bindings LOOK great but the straps can be a giant pain to get into the buckle on the mountain - it's a regular struggle that really takes away from the bindings. these are not as easily adjustable as some of the other union bindings. so 5 stars for appearance but 2-3 for functionality.

I hiked the AT with this in 2015 and loved the design of it. I'm 6'2" and the fact that I could sit up in the tent was crucial in me getting the tent. It's a bit on the heavy side for ultralight backpacking considering you can find 2 person tents for a few more ounces but at the price point it was the best option for me. It packs really well and is pretty durable. Some of the jacobs ladders clips slide off the tethers early on in the trip but you can still tie the straps to make them work. I call this thing bulletproof for making it through 5 straight months of abuse. You'll be very happy with this tent at this price. Gave 4 stars based on weight to space to price ratio.

This flannel rocks. I have had many flannels in my life and this one is perfection. The feel and fit is perfect and I love the colors of the coffee. It goes great under a sweater as well. It has the causal and outdoorsman look all at the same time.

These fit true to size from the sizing chart provided and seem very warm. I just have initial impression but they fit great, look awesome, and are super comfy. I love the mittens style for keeping my fingers warm. They come with liners that are quality as well but I tend not to wear liners for personal comfort

I got this as a gift for my niece and it performs amazing. Its a great insulating layer if you are going to take them out in the weather or the snow to play or great for keeping her toasty and comfy inside. Plus, she is adorable in it.

I love this chain! It stores nicely to the harness clipped at different lengths and works great at anchors. I usually used a tether with a water knot just in case I need to leave a bail rap anchor but this thing is so convenient. It definitely stays on for sport routes now.

I have the SV and gave the LT as a gift to a friend. They love this jacket. Its the perfect down weight for those that run hot in the winter or like down jacket without the high volume loft look.

Just got this jacket and I love everything about it. It fits me well and the style is right on for me. I can't wait to put it through the wringer and see how it holds up. There are so many pockets!!

I currently climb in this helmet and it is amazing. I love the fit and the look. Most helmets make me look pretty durpy but this one is stylin' and high profilin' for my head shape. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I wish the chin strap was longer because I have to buckle below a magnificent beard so I need the extra strappage to get under the woolly beast.
