Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had never used DMM gear before but was looking to supplement my mastercams and liked the extendable slings of these. Plus, not a camalot fan.

Got his and other two sizes and love em. Easy to place, solid craftsmanship, handling is easy and extendable sling should realy be standard everywhere

Great all round 3 season shoe
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 148 lbs
Size Purchased: 10 (US)

This has been on the want list for about two years and I finally pulled the trigger. The reason was simple: had to work as a normal shoe with a tight/normal fit but ALSO have a collapsible heel. This nails both uses.

And a "really want" was carabiner loops. Why don't all shoes have this?

These look quite sharp, in fact I wear them to work regularly. They're great in Spring, Summer and Fall. I have not tried them in winter yet. I imagine they may be a bit too cold when the temps really drop.

They're good for around town, good for light hiking and approaches. They'are also light which is good when clipping to your harness on multipitch.

Would they work well do light climbing in? Haven't tried but my impression is sure, the same as any other sneaker or basic approach shoe.

Ultimately, the collapsible heel was what sealed the deal. I'd wanted the Sportiva TX2's but no heel =( I also have the Arc'teryx hiking boots which are fantastic all around. Would absolutely recommend.

Was hesitant from seeing how small they were but once I got my hands on them and tried a few out, was pleasantly surprised. I use them for the bolt/gear end of my alpine draws. I've taken them on 3 multipitch routes so far and neither I nor my partners have complained or had issues at all w/ size.

They'd be a bit small for rope end so I use DMM alpha lights for that which are larger, but light. 19g's are also good for other stuff like belay gloves, chalk bag etc or for a few random just in case extras w/o the weight penalty.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 148 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

The good is it's well made, fits well, is nice and stretchy, has an adjustable hood that's not annoying w/o a helmet and allows good peripheral vision.

The not so good. With a medium size Gamma MX, a Delta LT fleece and t-shirt, this feels tight. Wouldnt be very comfortable to hang out in or climb. The interior fleece lining is comfy but isn't that thick of course.

Therefore I think maybe the Gamma LT is better because it gives you a bit more room on the inside to layer as needed. The down side is the MX has better pockets.

IF you zip it up all the way, but without the hood on, it ends up over your chin and very awkward.

This is a great light fleece that is slim, but not so tight as to inhibit mobility. It's not typical stretchy fabric but I've climbed in it and it works great, doesnt catch or anything. Layers well under a ghost whisperer for example or any other light jacket. This is also very lightweight so a good backup to have, or nice on a spring/fall day while doing something active like climbing or hiking.

I usually wear medium but found a small fits perfect. Only difference I found was the medium seemed to be a bit longer at the waist.

Upgraded to this from my 320a which had gotten too large for me. First thing to mention, the sizing system seems to have changed. I had a 320a in LARGE which I had tightened all the way (due to losing weight). Then I first got this in medium but could also tighten it so both ends touched with no leftover webbing. Odd. So I had to move to small.

Leg loops without buckles are fantastic. The harness is super light, you can just fold it up in your pack and forget about it and you don't even notice yourself wearing it. Kinda wish they still had the little loop/buckle for a chalk bag (since I dont wear belts for it) from the 320a, but a minor thing.

Comfortable, well made, incredibly thin and light. Looks great. Will continue to always buy arcteryx harnesses!

Great boot, removable liner way to go
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 148 lbs
Size Purchased: 10.5

I've worn this hiking, scrambling, on approaches and a bit through talus. Just got back from Switzerland and spent several days hiking all day in them. Not only are they comfortable but you notice the difference in weight with traditional boots.

Boots look very sharp, seem well made and fit true to size. I love how light they are compared to leather boots. I always feel sad for my friends with bulky heavy boots. Vibram soles work well as expected,v ery grippy and good all around.

The best part is the removable liner, I dont know if it conforms to your foot etc but, being able to take them out as a camp shoe, to dry, to wash etc is just so darn practical.

I've spent all day walking through snow and my foot stayed dry. I noticed some wetness in the liner after finally removing them but it didnt make it through to my foot. Yeah! Also the liner dries quickly once taken out.

Also, the fact that the shoes have no tongue I find to be a huge benefit.

Only downside is price, get it on sale like I did. This jacket weights nothing, as someone said, it's like a cloud of warm air around you. It'll get some down leakage, but overall its tougher than the fabric would lead you to believe and its darn warm. Makes a good outer layer from 30-50F or so and a very good midlayer as well. Its not stretchy though.

Used this for approaches to crags, several mile hikes, scrambling. It's a good shoe, true to size, good durability. A bit stiff for awhile in the beginning, definitely need to wear it in. Consider getting the version that covers ankles to make it more versatile.

I use these for rock climbing and general winter use. Never done any skiing, but have stayed dry through lots of sledding and rolling in snow. They are warm, nice and stretchy, good for genera. winter activities outdoors. Maybe a tad large and stiff (a tad) for climbing, but still work very well.

This is teh same polartec fleece as the Patagonia R1. Basically its the same jacket with a BG logo as far as form and function goes.

Works as a good layer in early fall/late spring or over base layer in winter but under a jacket or mid layer. It's breathable and in turn the wind cuts right through it.

Nice and stretchy for climbing with long arms so they dont fall short when reaching.

This is a great jacket, very warm for weighing nothing. It's like a cloud of warm air on you. Good as a light outer layer or mid layer. It's not stretchy so not good for climbing etc. Also its pretty darn shiney, which I dont like so much, but not a big deal. The fabric is a extremely low denier, 10 I think, so its easy to tear and get some down leakage, but gear tape will fix that. Overall worth buying. You can always stuff this into bag as a backup without noticing the extra weight.

I've taken this climbing, hiking and fishing. It's fantastic for all round use when being active. Just to know, it's not great as an around town jacket etc becuase the wind will go right through it. Is a good mid layer though. It's comfy and stretchy for climbing too and has slightly long arms because of that.
