Also good for parties by the tool shed
5 5

No cooler in your tool shed? No problem! Just grab your favorite utility bucket and transform it into a good-looking, mobile, bar. Just like the magic they perform on home improvement shows, you'll go from trash to class in 15 seconds! Plus you can take it with you as the party moves from the work table to the front yard where everyone is trying to find Casey's sunglasses that he lost while he was trying to find the front door. Oh, Casey.

This birthday boy is very happy with his party in a bucket. Get one!

Get it and Forget it
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

After one climb, this loosened up and felt practically next to skin. I'm really sold on Edelrid's products. They perform as they should, feel comfortable, and look good.

A medium was a good fit for me, which is normal. So, they will fit true to size. I could definitely wear this all day.

I did 4 stars since I haven't put it through the wringer.

Comfortable Performance
4 5

Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 8.0

I was recently able to try Red Chilies for the first time. Not sure what took me so long. They are a solid brand, for sure!

The comfort aspect is remarkable. I was able to climb hard in them, even though they were out of the box.

The rubber is also really grippy. I did 4 stars since I don't yet know how long the rubber will last. I was very impressed though, so I have high hopes.

I would use this model for long routes and gyms. It's comfortable, but still reliable.

Size these a little lower than your street shoe size. I'm an 8.5-9.0. The 8.0 is good for a tight, high performing fit.

These draws have a smooth metal area for the rope to slow down the wear and tear on the rope. This is a good piece to put at your crux. It will slow down the wear and tear of your rope, when you take multiple falls.

These are perfect for holding the rope at the chains, as well. The rope will run smoothly through the draws without rubbing against metal burrs or getting tightly pinched around the draw. It's a luxury piece, but a really nice one!

Top of the Line
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Petzl used to be the only rope for me, until I discovered that Edelrid makes their ropes. So, now my favorites are Petzl or Edelrid. Petzl is smart to have them make their ropes. They are easy to use right out of the box. They are also durable and beautiful. What else do you need!

This particular rope is awesome if you climb in wet or humid conditions. The dry treatment will also make the rope last longer.

The size 9.5 is a perfect all around rope for lead climbers.

So Impressed.
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Light Weight ATC - Check!
Guide Mode - Check!
Autolocking - Check!
Affordable - Check!
and my favorite aspect.... Smooth lead belay - Check!

This is a brilliant piece of technology. Once you know how to hold it properly, it's actually very intuitive. This does everything you want and need it to do. and on top of that, it's lightweight and inexpensive.

My favorite aspect was how easy it is to feed the rope, while leading. Often you can't hear or see the climber, so you have to be able to feed rope quickly, without warning. This device makes it really easy to respond quickly and feed rope smoothly. It's a must have.

Comfortable Sun Protection
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: small

I've been getting this white shirt nice and dirty this summer. I'm happy to report that it has been cleaning up very well!

I've also been really comfortable in it, during full days of solid sun, in all kinds of activities. It's definitely nice to protect the skin from burning!

I find the cut flattering. It runs big for sure, but normal for Patagonia, which seems to run large. I'm more of a medium size top, but the medium was really sloppy. The small is perfect!!

This is easy to dress up with some accessories. So, it's good for causal lake, beach or lawn parties.

Solid
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 9.5

I have the Freerider, but wanted a little stiffer shoe. The Contact is just a little bit stiffer. It's more streamlined as well. It's not as bulky. The toes are more protected with these as well, which I very much appreciate. I find them really comfortable and breathable.

The sole is grippy, of course. I like the idea of the flat rubber section of the sole, for proper contact on the pedals. But, I'm not sure I can actually tell the difference. Either way, this is a comfortable and responsive shoe.

I sized up half a size in these. I'm normally a size 9.0. Maybe it's on account of the stiffer toe, but the 9.5 is a good fit, especially for long rides.

Best Design
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This closure is hands down the best design. I've used all kinds, including some I've made myself. But, this one wins.

It's easy to use, mindless really. And, it contains the chalk 100%, when not in use. I will agree with the previous reviewer that they need to have an option with a sizable pocket.
