I took this jacket with me on a recent trip to the desert for a weekend climbing trip and it was the perfect layer - breathable during the warm days and fits nicely under my puffy at night. The only thing I didn't love about this jacket was that the sleeves fit a bit snug around the forearms for me - They fit just fine rolled down, but rolling the sleeves up to my elbows is a bit of a battle. On the upside, a feature I particularly love about this jacket is how it fits while I climb. The side pockets are set a bit higher on the waist, which allows me to access them without loosening or taking off my harness and that's so handy.

It's really impressive how lightweight this helmet is. It also ventilates pretty well, which is perfect for trips to the desert. The magnetic clasp on this helmet is so easy to use and I LOVE the elastic strap on the back - mounting a headlamp onto a helmet can be really tricky, and the elastic system really helps.

I was a bit wary that these boots would be too wide for me since I don't have a particularly wide foot, but I was pleasantly surprised with how well they fit. I have tons of room for movement in the toe-box, but my ankle and heel are held so securely that it was not an issue. I was worried that while walking downhill my foot would slide forward into that extra space, but this was not the case at all.

I've been using these for short day hikes in the canyons near Salt Lake City. We're slowly gearing into spring here so I've encountered the occasional snow and or mud patch, but with the waterproof leather and awesome tread on these boots I had no issues.

I can already tell that this is going to be the perfect jacket for the outdoor climbing season. It has the perfect combo of warmth and breathability. My favorite feature of this jacket are the sleeves, I like to have the option to roll my sleeves up without feeling restricted, and the soft stretchy fabric really allows for that. There's also long patches of ripstop material down the forearms, so I don't have to worry about rubbing up against the rock too much. The jacket allows for so much mobility all around. Another nice feature is the low profile hood - it fits nicely under my helmet on those extra windy days.

I love how these shoes are mega sensitive without sacrificing their aggressive performance. They feel relaxed on my feet but perform like an aggressive shoe - it's hard to believe until you give them a try. The Vibran XS rubber is just what it says... so grippy! This helps me feel confident even on the tiniest foot chips. The lacing is simple and makes for a good fit - like a lace up shoe without the time commitment. My only beef is that they aren't the most durable shoe, but that comes with the territory of the Vibram XS Grip rubber. My advice with that is to be intentional with the routes you choose these shoes for, don't rake down a runout slab route like I did!

This bladder has been my trustee hydration companion for years. It's the perfect size for my Osprey Daylite Pack. It doesn't add too much weight, but holds the perfect amount of water for a short day hike. The side-seal closure is great and I never have to worry about any leaks. I have to say, the magnetic attachment is my favorite feature - so easy to snap on and off. The rubber mouth piece will wear down over time, but a replacement can be purchased and easily reinstalled.
