Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got one of these cams (blue) and after climbing with it for a couple weeks I was sold! Every time I place one of these cams I know that its not coming out. I went back and bought the whole set up to the orange. The shape of the head allows for a much deeper camming motion. I have placed these cams many times in flaring and slightly offset cracks that the BD cams would never have worked confidently. When I just need a single set of cams these are the ones that are on my harness everytime now. Get them you will not be disappointed!!

Fit: True to size

These might one of my favorite pairs of Saxx underwear. They are a real light and breathable mesh which is great for hot summer trips when you're going to be in the same pair for many days in a row. They dry super quick which also keeps the smell to a minimum. They still have the signature saxx package pocket to keep you secure when your being real active. These are the by far the best active underwear I have in my drawer.

These pants are awesome. I have worn them in every condition since getting them. Cold and snowy, warm and sunny, and wet and snowy. The big vents are great for exhausting heat fast when moving up hill. They keep you dry when the snow is wet but they breath like a softshell. They are also tough when you have to bushwhack to and from your line. The slimmer fit is super nice.

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

We started my niece on the plastic burton boards which worked great for helping them get the idea of sliding around and the balance of it. But now that we are going down the hills we needed something that had edges. You can really tell a difference with edge and the kids ability to bite the snow and stay upright. This board is a great price point that is well made and I'm sure will last many hand-downs for the rest of the family to use.

The reverso is simple but effective. the guide mode of the reverso works great. I have used this belay device until has no teeth and I have never seen the guide mode fail. The lower function works well but this is the hardest function to use on all of the guide mode belay devices. Still love it and use it all the time.

I love the hydro flask! I use it often, one of my favorite ways to use it is to just keep ice in it in the car so when I get back after a long hot day in the sun I can pour me an ice cold drink. It also works great for keeping a nice hot coffee warm for most of the day out in real cold temps. I can usually keep a drink warm for 4-5 hours in temps less then freezing.

These are my first mountaineering boots so I don't have anything to compare them to but I have worn them several times and my feet have never gotten wet or even moist at all, they also have only gotten a little cold on the coldest days (0 degree temps). I would definitely recommend these boots to everyone. Got these in my regular shoe size and they have been a really good fit.

The main feature of the pivot is the pivoting piece for the guide mode. This piece works very similar to all the other guide mode belay devices. However when you are in need of lowering your second this piece really shines above all the other belay devices. If you have ever had to lower your second you know how much of a pain it is. This device makes that lowering go a lot smoother with the ability to swing the device up to lower a lot easier.

Been using these most of the season this year and they are great. Not to thin but not too thick to where they bite too hard. Come back out of the ice when I need them to and go in deep when I need them to. After my old ones had been filed down a little too much it was great putting on a nice new set.
