Daniel Goodman's Bio

I am truly passionate about climbing and splitboarding, and living here in the Wasatch, how could I not be? Typical days for me consist of a morning dawn patrol, time spent at the office, and then climbing or training for climbing after work. If you have any questions related to either of those activities, I've probably checked out the piece myself and would love to give you my two cents.

Feel free to contact me at any time:

I actually bought this shirt and had gotten a couple of others by the time it had arrived and I was planning on returning it. Boy, was I wrong. As soon as I put it on, I decided that I liked it so much, I would be wearing it to a wedding I was going to attend the following weekend.

Sleek, comfortable, and breathable.

Who can ask for anything more.

Seriously, if you don't have this tape, buy it. Or you won't make it to the top of that crack without major loss of skin.

This harness is incredible. Now, maybe I am over the top about it as it replaced a much smaller, sport climbing harness that I had recently been using for long multi-pitch days, so this thing feels like a dream. The waist belt is really comfortable and forgiving, they put on ample gear loops for those of us that like to have double the gear that the route calls for, and the 2 belay loops make it really easy to manage a lot of rope work when you're getting rowdy up on the wall.

Can't say enough great things about this harness, just don't forget to double back those buckles!

Love it!

Well, if you've ever used the Petzl Ange quickdraw, you know how awesome the carabiners and slings are. This is a basic piece and in time as I have to replace old dog bones, I will be buying many more due to their light weight, great price, and ease of use while clipping.

Seriously, these shirts are great, just like everything else Stoic ever made. I hate to say it, but I found the shirt to run Large. I usually wear a size L and picked up a Medium size which was a perfect fit.

Simple and easy, the shirt is comfortable, clean looking, and a great price!

Yeah, you were right, 100% merino here to save the day. it is lightweight in name, but a heavy hitter for me, keeps me plenty warm walking around in the early spring temperatures with a t-shirt underneath. My favorite layer currently. Warm, super comfortable, and breathes incredibly well!

True to size definitely, purchased a M and it is a little small on me, but I usually wear a L.

For a long time I thought these were the answer for splitboarders everywhere. We could finally stash our poles before riding down the mountain, enjoying a hands free descent.

After 3 pairs breaking on me, generally while walking on a flat skin track, I think next time I'll go for something else. To Black Diamond's credit, their warranty is awesome and they have taken care of me every time, I just can't trust these for long tours. While I'm all for rolling with the punches and skinning with 1 pole or grabbing a tree branch, at the end of the day, I need something more reliable.

Purchase with caution.

I keep one of these bad boys in the pocket of my chalk bag for multi pitch climbing routes. Super light, I forget it is there most of the time, but it has come in handy multiple times when rappelling off a route or hiking down after a long day. Nothing like picking your way through the darkness trying to find the next anchor, but thanks the the Petzl e+LITE, my eyes are saved the strain.

Not the most powerful headlamp on the market, it is great to have around in case of emergency!

Overall, these liners are great for ski touring. They are water-resistant, definitely not waterproof, and offer a minimal amount of insulation against the bite of the cold.

Upon first use I was psyched on these. Simple design, simply efficient, right? While true, I have also destroyed the face fabric. Now, I put my gear to work, so it isn't terribly shocking, and to their credit, I have yet to tear a hole all the way through the full fabric itself, but I have small holes in the face fabric all over these bad boys now, which continue to get larger.

So who knows, maybe the face fabric isn't necessary, will update as I learn more.

Black Diamond has created a lot of hype around the Mondo, for good reason. That being said, I fully endorse the Mangum as my favorite large pad on the market. The tri-fold design isn't for everyone, lookin' at you guy with 18 pairs of shoes stuffed in his crash pad headed for the boulders, but overall that is where the shortcomings of the Magnum end. Wider and longer than the Mondo, is covers more ground for you so that when you're like me and are terrible at placing pads based on where you'll fall, your ankles will still be safe.

It's like the big brother of the Recon, but even safer. 'Nuff said.

Let me know if you have questions on this pad or others as I have used a lot of 'em!

Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 160 lbs
Size Purchased: L

So I haven't had a chance to put them to the test yet as I ordered a size L thinking that would be best for my 32-33 inch waist. Unfortunately I was definitely wrong, with several inches of extra space, I opted for the size S. Still waiting for that to come in to try it out.

Another note, these are NOT bibs. Not sure why everywhere keeps saying that they are. These are pants with suspenders, but do not come with a bib!

Will update further with sizing notes!

This bag is a steal for the price and is definitely a 20 degree bag. I've used it a few times in around 30 degree temps and found it to be comfortable for that range.

At 6'0", the bag fits me well, but if you were any taller it would be a tough fit.

Great choice for car camping, a little heavy for my taste for backpacking, but overall a great bag so far.

Feel free to reach out with any questions you have about this sleeping bag or others:

I have probably put about 80 days into my Solution split so far and it is holding up incredibly well. Despite taking it over plenty of rocks, cliff rappels, and into steep icy conditions, it still rides like the first day I got it.

The board itself handles powder best by far, but is no slouch in icy conditions and hardpack.

At 6'0" height and 160 lbs, the 161 is perfect for me overall for everything from chutes to deep powder bowls.

If you have questions about this splitboard or any others, please feel free to give me a call or shoot me at email and I would love to help out with your set up!

These are seriously the best pants on the planet. I use them climbing, hiking, biking, and for simple everyday use and I couldn't imagine getting anything else in the future.

These hold up incredibly well against abrasion and having put mine through the wringer multiple times, I would expect that they will continue to do so.

They move smoothly, breathe well, and make you look like a total boss. If you're reading this, buy these pants, you won't be disappointed.

Primaloft gold is amazing. I was out the other day when it was 6 degrees out and my hands were completely numb in about 2 minutes just wearing my liners from other gloves. I popped the Mercury Mittens on and after dethawing my hands, they were sweating as we continued up the skin track. These aren't the greatest mittens for dexterity, but what they lack in that department, they make up for in being incredibly warm. Removing the shell and just wearing the liners does help with dexterity as well. Really happy with them so far!

I've done a lot of bouldering and have used a lot of bouldering pads and have come to the conclusion that the Recon is my favorite. It is a large pad but doesn't feel to bulky to move around or carry long distances. It is slightly smaller than the Black Diamond Mondo, but not nearly as bulky to move around. Definitely a great pad for the money!

This kit comes with everything that you might want for snow study in the Backcountry. The pouch holds everything nicely and it fits nicely into most touring bags without taking up a lot of room. If you are at all interested in upping your Avy knowledge, this is the key.

As soon as you get these guys in securely they are absolutely wonderful. The only problem I ran into was that some had a tendency to pop out. I found that by coating them with a touch of Gorilla Glue they stayed in much better though, definitely worth doing as you set yours up!
