I have been loving these shoes! I really love the flip down back. I can wear them as a slipper and kick them off super easy or i can wear them as shoe for a little more formalness. I am also surprised at how well they have held up. i usually go through shoes rather quickly with how much i walk around.

No need to spend hundreds when you just need a pack to carry your laptop in and out of work. The padding inside is efficient to protect your laptop and also kept the coffee out of my computer when I spilled it all in the bottom of the pack. Plenty of room for your workout clothes when you need to head to the gym after work. Of course all the essential pockets to keep things organized in the small front pocket.

This shoe has worked great from boulders to slab. They have a flat enough sole for great smear ability but stiff enough to edge on the smallest toeholds. If you cant decide what type of climbing you will be doing these are a great middle ground with stellar performance.

Don't be deterred by the idea that these seem "weird" They taste greate and are small and compact. Great pocket food for the trail or at work when you just can't suppress the hunger.

This bag is big enough to fill my Synpad in one fill. It makes life even easier then the hand pump. Don't waste time and energy pumping by hand when you can fill up your pad in seconds with this bag.

I have gone through unknown number of backpacking airpads. When your pad goes flat on the first night of a week and half out you know your going to hate going to bed. This pad has been the best pad i have had by far. The ripstop keeps those tiny holes from ruining your trip. The valve is great because it doesn't let any air out unless you want. Your lungs will Thank You when you can use the little hand pump that is included at 10,000+ ft.

These plates are perfect for camping. They take up almost no space in the camping box, can be used as multiple functions, are big enough for all the calories you need to recoup from a long day of adventuring, and are light enough to take backpacking if you hate eating out of the cooking pot.

I have been using my X4 set everywhere! Because they just seem to fit everywhere! I have pulled my C4 off my belt to only find the slot is too small and then find that the X4 fits. I don't feel any less secure on the X4s because of the smaller head. Some say the .75 head is a little floppy on the stem but I don't think its that bad, its just what you expect from a single stem cam like this.

I finally broke down and decided I needed a pair of Chacos. I have been loving them. I don't think flipflops because of the strap between my toe and the insecurity on your foot. But these don't have the strap and they are pretty solid on the foot. I have done some boulder hopping with these and felt really secure and relaxed in these things. They also have great grip on rocks and dirt.

These cams are great if you have to carry them very far. The light weightness of them is very noticeable when you have the old cams and new ones in your hands. With that said, I would caution buying these for everyday use at your local crag. As all lightweight gear tends to be they just wont last as long with the same amount of abuse. Buy the old cams for your regular use and buy these for going high into the alpine where weight makes a difference whether you make it to the summit or not.

I love this headlamp for the simple reason that I can recharge it or just switch out the batteries for some regular AAAs. This is the most cost effective headlamp that has that ability. Cause having that option out in the backcountry can save you.

I took this up to the Bugaboos this year and it worked great. We wanted something light to keep the pack weight down and this was perfect. We weren't expecting to take any falls so the thin rope wasn't a concern for that reason but the rock is quite rough. That did take a small toll on the sheath of the rope but only on some rappels.

This hydroflask will hold all the beer you need in one bottle as well as keep it cold the whole time your drinking it. The only downfall to this hydroflask I have is the lid isn't interchangeable with the other hydroflask lids so if you looking to hook up a sipper lid to this, it won't work. But i have been loving this thing for water and beer!

If you climb on any type of granite you should have these on your rack! No Buts! I use these guys everywhere, and when you can't get that regular nut to stick in the placement these nuts will be bomber!
