Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these to rack my camalots and keep everything color coded, and they do their job well. I find that they're just a little bit smaller than I'd like in order to handle comfortably, and sometimes the nose snags on things, but those are sacrifices you make for lightweight, cheap biners. If you want to spend a little more and avoid the nose snags, go get the BD Oz, which is basically the same thing but with a wire over the nose.

Does the job while being cheap
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things are sweet because they're so sturdy yet so cheap. The only thing they aren't good for is alpine draws, just because the thickness can cause difficulty (stick to dyneema for alpines). But I always have several of these over my shoulder with one biner on each to extend cam placement on long, wandering trad routes. Plus, they're cheap enough that you don't feel bad about leaving them behind should you need to bail off an anchor.

I got this set for about $50 when I was just getting into climbing and even at that price I wish I would have spent more for something better. The dog bones are shorter than any I've ever seen and the biners gate action isn't very smooth and they're size and shape just makes them hard to handle. If you don't plan on climbing very often or very hard, then this might be the set for you, otherwise spend a little more to get some better draws.

I have about a half dozen of these and, with the exception of my the biner on my belay/rappel device, these get used more than any other locker. They especially excel at anchor building. They're small, but not so small that they're hard to handle, and both the gate and screw action are smooth even after 2 years of extensive use.

Great for moderate temps
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 4"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

This shirt provides a nice layer for days that are just a little chilly for have a slight breeze, but also breathes very well to make it suitable for hotter days as well. I was surprised by how much it shrunk after the first time I washed it, making the bottom shorter than I like, so just be aware of that when washing.

The Hype is Real

Heard so much about how these were the greatest climbing pants of all time from friends and online reviews. Guess what? They were right. Stylish, durable, well designed, stretchy, comfortable. The list goes on and on. Stop looking for a reason to buy them and just do it already, you won't have any regrets.

Literal Life Saver

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Took my first ever fall on gear last week. My foot slipped unexpectedly and while in mid-fall I realized like I never had before that I wasn't on bolts anymore. After being caught I looked up in horror, not quite ready to accept that I was still alive and well, until I saw my #3 still right where I had placed it. These things hold like champs and inspire confidence. I anticipate taking more falls on the c4's in the future and trust that they'll continue to keep me alive. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Comfortable and All-around Solid Helmet
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A close call my belayer had with a falling rock I dislodged finally scared me enough to get a helmet. I did some research and compared different products but I'll admit one reason I got the El Cap was because I thought it looked cool.
After using it regularly for a few months I couldn't be happier with the purchase. First of all, it looks as good in person as it did in the pictures, but more important than that, it's super comfortable. I'm the type of guy who usually hates helmets of any sort but this fits great and I never even notice it's on my head. It's also a breeze to adjust (as other reviewers said, it runs small. I've got a tiny head and the larger size fits me great). I've thankfully never had to really test this helmet's strength, but after several bumps against the wall, there's hardly any sign of wear. Furthermore, I do a lot of night climbing and the clips have worked great so far with my Petzl headlamp.
All in all, the El Cap is a super comfortable helmet that I'd recommend to anyone and will likely purchase again should this one need replacing.
