Familiarity: I've used it several times

First off, this harness is awesome. It will do exactly what you need it to. It feels very safe, is lightweight and compact-able, and comfortable. One of my favorite things about this harness is that I did not feel the high tension, "pinch" feeling when belaying or when taking a rest or a fall on the wall. It does a really good job of distributing the tension throughout the harness so that it does not pile up in one spot.

One thing I did not like as much about this harness is the adjust-ability. Some people really like the elastic leg loops, and that is why they are quite poplular, but I am not a huge fan. I prefer to have more customization and flexibility for the harness to fit someone with really big legs or really small legs. I also like it when harnesses have two belt adjusters, so that you can get the waist belt adjusted exactly how you like it an position it straight on to avoid reaching further than you have to for gear.

Overall, great harness!

This helmet is the overall best. There may be many other helmets that seem better than this one because they are really expensive and whatever else, but at the end of the day, this helmet is the absolute best. It comes at an awesome price point, is very comfortable, the one handed adjustment works perfectly, it is MIPS, and looks awesome. One of my initial concerns about this helmet was that it looked like it was really big and makes peoples heads look small, but that is not the case. It does not seem too big while still providing great protection. Would recommend to anyone.

I was a little skeptical about this pedal at first. I saw other pedals for the same price that had many more 5 star reviews but they did not have the black color in stock while this one did. I took a leap of faith and purchased these ones and I love them. They have an amazing grip on my shoes and are really sweet for pedaling, and they look awesome. They are a little bit bigger than most other pedals but they are lightweight and I have never thought it was a problem. I really love them and am glad that I got them.

This bottle is awesome. It has the prestigious quality that you can expect from hydroflask and comes in a great size to hold a lot of water and ice or any other drink for that matter. When this bottle is full, I would say that it is too heavy to carry around to school or to go on a hike/other active activity. It is really great for having in the car or having around the house though! I got the purple color and it is sweet.

This is the best bladder I have ever had. All other bladders that I have worked with have leaked or had some other problem. This one is free of problems. It is really easy to fill it up with the plastic handle that is connected to the mouth, the water flow is really smooth and the water comes out easy, it is also a really great size where it will fit in every pack and has enough water for mountain biking or a long hike, but not too big where it takes up tons of space or adds excessive weight. I would recommend this to anyone.

I have the Kaut Transfer 2, and that rack does not come with any sort of locking pin, just a normal pin. I wanted to ensure that my rack was always secure so I went with this lock. It was exactly what I expected. A good quality pin that would keep my rack safe being parked outside every night.

CAMP is my favorite brand of carabiner. I have never been disappointed with one of their products and this carabiner was no different. The inexpensive price might lead you to believe that you are sacrificing quality with this carabiner. That is not the case. The locking mechanism on this biner is very smooth and is much easier to do with one hand than many other lockers that I have used. It also has the same strength ratings as most other carabiners so you do not have to sacrifice that. The nose also does not catch easily on ropes or slings which makes setting up anchors a breeze with one hand. Great carabiner and would definitely purchase again.

This rack is awesome. It looks really nice, is really user friendly and does everything that you would expect it to do. One of the features that I really like is that it has a very secure hold on your bikes. I am never nervous about my bike being on this rack although it is very simplistic. It also has the ability to lower when you need to access items out of your trunk/back of your car. The only downside to this rack is that the arms can be a little squeaky when you raise and lower them just due to the way that they are built to adjust. It does not bother me that much and it is a very small con compared to much larger pros. This rack is awesome.

Fit: True to size

This is a fantastic rain jacket. There are so many good things about it. I really like how it feels and fits. Many other rain jackets will make you feel clammy and uncomfortable but this jacket breathes so well that I never experience that problem. I have worn this jacket through rainstorms in different countries all over the world and it has held up really well in each one. I always find myself completely dry and comfortable. I would recommend this jacket to anyone as it is a great value and one of the best rain jackets in my opinon.

I ordered the 40m version of this rope for indoor gym use and it is the best one I have used in my opinion. I love the way it feeds easily through ATC's and for the feel of the rope. It is burly and durable, which will help it last a long time. It also has a very comfortable stretch so that provides a nice catch when taking a whipper. Great rope.

There are too many good things to say about these shoes. They edge incredibly well and are sticky on slab and comfortable in cracks. Above all, they are really comfortable for all day mulitpitch use. I was really impressed by how these shoes molded to my foot. I was not expecting them to have a personalized like they did. I felt like they ran a little small. I am anywhere from a 9.0-9.5 street shoe and I ordered an 8.5 in these and it is perfect. Definitely would recommend trying them on before purchasing.

I didn't know if I would love this cam or not but I took a chance on it and got one. I really love it. Because of their extremely small size and only 3 lobes as opposed to 4 I was worried how they would hold/walk etc. After trying mine out, I was pleasantly surprised at how they hold really strong and hardly move around at all in cracks. I is also really nice to have the head be narrower than other small cams as it allows for many more placement opportunities. Love these.

This guide is a must for climbing the granite canyons near Salt Lake. I had been using Mountain Project and honestly I had been missing out on something great. After I got this guide, it was so much easier to keep track of climbs that I wanted to do and where I could find them. It is also really helpful to know EXACTLY how to get there instead of having to guess what Mountain project was trying to say. I love this guide.

I got a couple of these to replace some old CAMP carabiners on my quick draws and they work great! They are simple and everything that you would want from a quick draw. They are not as light as many carabiners, but I don't mind sacrificing the weight for added durability and strength.

I really love these specialty pieces. They take a little bit to get used to and to figure out where they work best but once they start to work they are marvelous. There have been many times where I was climbing a crack that was too deep and thin for any of my nuts/cams, but perfect for these ball nuts. They also feel really solid when you get it in a good placement. Much more solid than I thought. I would recommend adding a few of these to any trad rack as they will always come in handy at some point. I have the two smallest sizes and I believe those are the most useful.

This carabiner compliments any ATC so well. They are big and durable which allows them to outlast much rope drag. I also really like how they are round, smooth, and easy with the rope. It is reassuring to know that when there is a lot of tension on the rope held by the carabiner that it is not harming the rope in any way. I have one of these for every ATC that I have and I have not had any regrets.

I purchased this nut tool over the other black diamond nut tool for the wire gate to be able to attach to my harness without an extra carabiner and for the flat butt to avoid pain when I need to really hammer on this to get pieces that are really dug in the wall loose.

After using it, I really love clipping it to the harness easily with the wire gate, but I have found that even with the slattened, semi-smooth end, it still hurts pretty bad to hammer on these with your palm. If that is a concern, maybe consider getting a padded nut tool or one with a wider flat end.

Overall, I really like this product.
