I love my Grigri 2. It grips even the smallest canyoneering ropes and never lets go. It's intuitive to set up and gives anyone the stopping power for big falls or the finesse for a slow descent. Everyone should own one of these.

I really love my Petzl Actik headlight. There has yet to be a time that I needed it brighter, but when toned down the battery life is exceptional. I am going to upgrade the battery to the Petzl Core to give it rechargability, but other than that for a headlamp that just gets the job done with no bells and whistles, the Actik has done everything I have asked of it.

I really wanted to like the North Face Kilowatt Thermoball jacket, but it just didn't fit what I was looking to do. I have other Thermoball products and love each of them. I was really looking for something with a bit more warmth than a hoodie, but not a full jacket. This one was still just a bit too warm for my needs. The jacket is well constructed, fits well, and definitely is warm through the core; just too much for a mid-weight jacket for me. If you want the warmth of a light puffy and the look of a fleece, it definitely fits the bill. I just have too many options in that category and opted to go with something lighter.

The Icebreaker Incline full-zip has filled a perfect role for me. I use it as an outer layer for high energy activities and as a light mid-layer when temps dip or under a rain shell. The fit is true to size and the extended arm length with thumb holes makes it a great fit for a run, curling, or just a casual night out. The extended back keeps it down while paddling.

The Kelty Noah's Tarp is a nice addition to any campsite. It can shade a table, provide a place to get out of the weather or act as a supplemental rainfly is the weather is looking really bleak. It has plenty of ways to set it up and holds up to even the strongest winds. Overall, a great product from Kelty.

I can't say enough good things about my Helinox Chair One. For those of us with short legs, it makes lounging so nice. I don't mind not having a drink holder as I am close enough to the ground to just set it there and not worry about spilling. Pay attention to how it comes out of the back originally as rolling it back up is a bit tricky.

My Eagle's Nest Outfitters ProFly tarp has become my go to emergency shelter. It packs small, yet provides enough room for two people to sleep under if necessary. I like the two extra attachment points on the ProFly over the FastFly. I feel it gives me more setup options. The only drawback is that the cordage on the guylines is not very good. I simply replaced mine with paracord and have not had another problem. Also, the tarp does not come with stakes so I needed to add some before using it. When that high mountain storm rolls in and forgets to roll out, having a dry place to hang out is worth the extra pound in your pack.

The Yakima Q Clips do a great job of tying the Q Towers to your vehicle. They attach easily to the Towers and provide a great tie-in to any vehicle. As noted in many of the other reviews, this is one pair of clips. Great for one bar, but you'll need two sets if you are putting two load bars on your ride.

The Yakima Q Towers provide a very solid foundation to your rack system. They attach easily when paired with the correct Q clips and lock the load bars tightly. I have not seen any slippage on the roof nor have I had to adjust these after the initial installation.

I love the Hydro Flask 32 oz. wide mouth bottle. The addition of the straw lid makes getting all my cold refreshment out just that much easier. The thing is a bit much to carry when full but the extra volume is nice to have when things get hot (or cold).

The North Face Aleutian bag is a great option for a value bag with above value features. The versatility of the small side zipper in opening up the bag as a blanket and the interior zippered pocket are both well thought out. The cut is a bit wider than most tapered bags which allows for a more comfortable sleep on your side. Overall, a great bag at a great price.

The Giro Scamp has lived up to all expectations. It was easy to fit on my little guy, and with the cool graphics he actually likes putting it on. The no-pinch buckle let's him put it on by himself. He feels cool and mom and I don;t worry about his noggin with the combination of the molded shell and foam liner.

The versatility of the small side zipper in opening up the bag as a blanket and the interior zippered pocket are both well thought out. The size cutoff is a bit on the small side. I would recommend that anyone 5'5" or over goes with the long to allow any room in the bottom of the bag. The cut is a bit wider than most tapered bags which allows for a more comfortable sleep on your side. Overall, a great bag at a great price.

I love my Patagonia 1/4 Zip Better Sweater. It is plenty warm as a mid layer for chilly days under a shell, but doesn't look out of place for running to grab take-out. The lofted lining is soft if worn against the skin and the cuffs are tight enough to stay in place without sliding over your hands. I like the deep zipper for venting core heat. I purchased it as a casual piece, but find that I am using it in more technical situations that I would have originally thought. Patagonia got this one right.

The Nikwax Tech Wash is by far the best product I have used for removing dirt from all of my technical outerwear. Being water based, it never leaves any residue on my machine and every product comes out ready to retreat with the DWR. I have used it on not only my regular outerwear, but also on my hunting camouflage with no unwanted side effects. As a jacket junkie, this is one product I am never without.

I love my 2XU Recovery Compression Socks. Putting them on after any exercise speeds up my recovery time and just feel great once they are on. As with any compression sock, they are a bit tricky to get on but this is a small price for the benefit they provide.

I love my Hydroflask 24 oz. bottle. It is the perfect size for cup holders, backpack drink pockets, and holding on to. The standard mouth is easy to drink from though makes is bit tricky to get ice into. The insulation keeps things cold (or hot I guess) for quite a long time and the stainless bottle makes cleaning easy. This has been my go to bottle since buying it.
