Chase Huntzinger's Bio

I love getting outdoors. My favorite outdoor activity is rock climbing. I am excited to be able to do more camping with my family this year and will be climbing in Spain at the end of the summer.

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

I took this sleeping bag on a backpacking overnighter recently and I can honestly say that it was the best night of sleep I have ever had outdoors. That may have been influenced by the fact that I was exhausted from the hike in, but this bag was very comfortable. My favorite part of this sleeping bag was the interior material at the head and feet. Other mummy bags I have used in the past have had the same slick polyester material throughout the whole bag, but the Uinta 30 has a material that is more similar to a blanket at the head and feet of the interior of the bag. This is great for keeping you warm where there is the potential to get a little chilly in the night. The sleeping bag can also zip from the top or the bottom, allowing you to open up the foot area in the night if you get a little toasty. I am kind of tall, and was pushing the limits of this bag. I think this bag would be a great fit for somebody who is 6'0 or smaller, but you can still make it work if you are a little taller. The compressed size was fine for backpacking. It doesn't pack down as small as the Basin and Range La Sal 0 Degree Down bag, but it was still up for the challenge. Great job Basin and Range.

I took this sleeping bag on a backpacking overnighter with a family member recently. While I was not the one to sleep in it, I can vouch for the fact that this bag is lightweight and packs down quite small. It was great for carrying 3.5 miles up a mountain. The material on the bag is different from other mummy bags I have used in the past. It seems to be more tear-resistant and durable. The sleeping bag can zip from the bottom and the top, making it possible to unzip near the feet in the night to cool down. I was impressed by the quality of this bag and feel it is a great option for an affordable down sleeping bag for warmer camping trips.

I have had Sanuk shoes in the past and they have been some of the most durable shoes I have ever owned, so I am hoping to get the same out of these flip flops. My initial impressions are that they are extremely comfortable, and they seem to be durable. The cotton webbing is great. I am thinking that it will not irritate my foot the way rubber ones do. I wear a size 11.5 in regular street shoes. I bought a size 11 in these shoes and they fit perfectly. Would highly recommend.

I bought these recently as an affordable pair of shades. I love them and my initial impression is that they are durable and look good. These are a great option for somebody that is needing a good pair of sunglasses without breaking the bank.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This was my first, and still is my only rope. I have been climbing on it for over a year now, and while it does show some signs of wear, I am still loving it. It is a very durable rope. It is very convenient that it comes with the half-way marks clearly shown. Comes in very handy when rappelling. After owning this rope and being so impressed, it would be hard to go with another brand besides Petzl when given the choice between the two. I will add that this rope is a bit pricey, but I feel it has been worth the investment. Extremely satisfied.

My Grigri has become a vital piece of gear. It is an extremely high-quality piece of equipment. I know that it is used a lot for top-rope belaying, but it has also come in very handy for me being used to lead-belay. While it can feel a bit awkward at first to lead belay with it, it is so nice knowing that you have that extra bit of protection in the case of a lead fall. The product is easy to use, and it includes pictures to help users know how to correctly use the product. I have been very impressed and am so happy that I have my Grigri. I would highly recommend it to anybody. Definitely worth the investment.

I absolutely love these pants. I bought them around six months ago and they are my go-to climbing pants. The material is great to stay warm when you want to, but somehow it manages to stay cool when you need as well. The built-in belt is amazing for using under a harness. The material is stretchy and great for outdoor activities. They really are durable as well. I am not a huge fan of the snaps at the bottom for rolling them up. I feel like they look a little baggy on me, but that doesn't stop me from loving them. My one recommendation -- if you are a bit more on the thin side, I would recommend taking a look at the Brion pant. While I have not worn a pair, I have heard that they are great for climbing as well, but will not be quite as baggy.
