I've had these for about a year now and have been really happy with them. Nice and sensitive on the way up and plenty of heel cushion on the way down. I have also been using them as my approach shoes for long days in the Alpine and don't see myself going back to approach shoes. The outsole is plenty sticky for scrambling up to the base of route and the cushion on the way out is always appreciated. I did order 1/2 Larger than my normal running shoe and they fit perfect.

I absolutely love these sport draws. They are easier to clip than my previous sport draws and the fat dog bone is very useful when projecting/pushing your limit. The gate action is incredibly smooth and they are a breeze to clean off of overhanging routes thanks to the key lock nose on both sides of the draw. While I haven't measured them the gate opening seems really big which also helps with clipping/unclipping.

Love these...I have them racked on my alpine draws and cams. The gate action is great and easy to use even with gloves on. My seconds have, on multiple routes, thanked me for replacing my nano carabiners with these on my alpine draws as the bigger gate opening makes unclipping the rope much easier. Yes they weigh a bit more in comparison to nano carabiners but they are stronger and easier to use. Next up is replacing my sport draw carabiners with these. Love them!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have these mounted on a pair of 182 Dynafit Hokkaidos set up to ski with my Vulcans and I absolutely love the set up. The heel retention has not been an issue and there is a noticeable weight savings over the original radicals that I had been skiing. Broke in this set up on a 3-day hut trip with a pretty long approach. No complaints!

I'll be honest I never thought I would be wearing a helmet Sport Climbing but since I have started climbing in the Wall Rider I can't think of a reason not to. It is low profile, light weight, and very breathable. I have found myself on numerous occasions forgetting that I am even wearing it. I've used it Trad climbing, Alpine Climbing, and yes even sport craggin. Love it.

I have been using the Foraker for the past couple of seasons as a layer piece for Alpine Missions and Resort skiing. I love the warmth to weight ratio and the longer arms make it a great climbing piece. Low bulk under a shell keeps me from looking like a marshmallow with is always a plus.

This thing in warm. The warmth to weight ratio is amazing and I love the two big mesh pockets in the inside for keeping things warm during winter camping missions. Have used it for winter ski camp trips, cragging, and cold days around town. The light weight face fabric has held up well to my abuse as well.

Been using these pants this year for ski touring and skiing at the resort and really like them. They have a loose fit which is nice since they are hardshell so they don't inhibit any of my strides when touring. The 3/4 (no mess) side vents are also crucial and a really nice feature. Been really impressed with their durability given their weight.

I have been using this jacket for a little over a year and love it. I have used it skiing/climbing/around town and have yet to be disappointed. It is the perfect combination of weight and warmth. Packs down small in my pack so I never leave home with out it. I wear it in a large since I wanted to be able to fit it over all of my other layers. If I was using it as a mid layer I would get the medium.

I have put this system into a number of pack and find it to be very intuitive. I like that it is easy to install since I have a few RAS compatible packs but only one airbag system and just swap it back and forth depending on what size pack I need for my trip. Great way to save some $$.

I used the 30l version as a touring pack last year and really liked it. The snow safety pocket for your avy safety gear keep everything organized for easy access when needed. I also like the helmet holder was really useful for touring when you don't typically want to wear your helmet while skinning up and you don't have to have it loosely hanging off the back of the pack. Great pack! As a skier I was able to strap crampons onto the pack using the snowboard carrying straps.
