This filter is awesome! I have been using this for a couple years and it still is working great. To help make it flow a little faster get the water down the tube to the filter and once the filter is wet it will start flowing a lot faster. Grab the water, hang it up, and let it flow! Then go set up your tent, grab your snacks and relax.

This mix is a great source for all those vitamins and minerals you are missing out on in your vegan diet. And with the 15g of protein it will help assure you that you got the right amount you need for your day. The Coconut Almond has a great flavor to it even when just adding it to cold water.

These gloves work great for carrying up the wall so you can get off without getting that rope burn or for that matter just keep the grit that your rope has picked up off your hands. Your hands are important for climbing make sure they don't take abuse from all the other functions to get up the wall. The fingerlessness works well for getting that finger in your jumar trigger, or your gear when leading those aid pitches.

If you are aiding anything steeper this is a tool that will speed you up and make those leads at least a little smoother. The biggest downfall of the Fifi is that fact it gets hooked on everything! So if i was not using it i would stuff it in my pocket or take it off my harness all together if I'm done aiding for the day.

Fit: True to size

These pants are definitely the slimmest fitting pants in the men's line of Prana. I have climbed in the gym with them a couple times and they are probably a little too tight without the appropriate stretch for performance climbing, but the ladies love these slim-fit pants so for me they are a little more of a casual pants that i can go to the gym in but definitely not the pants to wear out to the crag. So i think they fit true to size but i am not a big dude and if you had thick legs i could see these being too small for you. So as long as you know what these pants are they are true to size.

This is the first board I have bought with a chamber in quite a while. Although on the deep days it doesn't float like the reverse boards did it handles really well. I can make turns quick and smooth and I never slip on the walk up either i have more skin and grip that you can ever get with the rev-cam boards. Although I haven't ridden it on any step firm slopes i think the that is where the board will really shine. The stiffness of the board is also perfect for a splitboard. No one wants a loose splitboard.

This thing is perfect for when your going out for a couple days. Its good for about 2 charges on your phone. The tough rubber case and the rubber cover for all the plug-ins makes it perfect for desert trips, backpacking, where ever you're going.

These are super light draws! Some of the weight is cut by have small biners, these work fine for sport climbing but you wouldn't want these with gloves ice climbing. The dog bone is also small to help with the weight savings. These are the draws that you want to use when your going for that redpoint send attempt.

I have been using these to jumar up ropes so I am not sure about how well they would work on aid but with a quick adjustment you can get the perfect placement for jumaring up the rope. A small cinch for you foot keeps your feet in the loops so you don't have to think about it. I will be trying them on lead aid climbing soon and i can work the adjustment to step up to the piece.

Whether you are looking for a price point binding or something that will take you to the far reaches these are your bindings. They aren't going to be the lightest bindings you can get but they will hold up to a beating and when you are miles away from your car and standing on a peak you won't have to worry about these bindings breaking.

I got these for a future trip to Yosemite but in the meantime I have been climbing a rope I hung in a tree. I have done a little jumaring with a daisy and also a PAS chain. Obviously the PAS is not ideal, cause it is not very adjustable. The evolv adjust is one step further then the daisy, you can really dial in exactly where you want to be in direct to the jumar. Whereas the daisy your choices are every 2-3 inches. i love that easy these are to adjust on the fly, so smooth. You also don't have the worry of being clipped in wrong like you do with the daisy. This should become the new standard.

Got these for my girl for our trip to the Napali Coast in Hawaii and she loved them. They were supportive enough for her foot but didn't create any hot-spots on the 11 mile hike. There worked great when we were walking through mud, and sand. And easily washed out when you came across a stream. She loves them and will be taking them to Myanmar for her next trip.
