Size Purchased: 34x30

I have a ton of jeans, and tons of "climbing jeans" I've had some older Prana ones (two styles) and I have the OR Gold jeans too, but these are insane. They are super lightweight, have the amazing 4 way stretch. They literally feel like you're secretly wearing some sort of sweat pants or leggings. There is 100% mobility, and they look (are) just jeans! Nobody has to know! Really comfortable and true to size. Tired of having to hem my jeans to 30" inseam, these are the best. I wear them 4 times a week.

Not my outfit, it's my uniform

I wear this thing like a uniform. I live in Southern California, so desert climbing, hiking, backpacking, etc. It is life. I hate putting on tons of sunscreen and missing spots and worrying about it. This is light, baggy, airy, and protects your skin. Pull the hood up and no more red ears and red neck. Match with a hat and sunglasses and the I tell the sun "BOY BYE!!!" Sure casual day hikers think I look like the unibomber, but they won't laugh at me if they get skin cancer.

I replaced all my Sterling 1" tubular webbing slings with these and couldn't be happier. They are waaaaay less bulky. Also mammut was very clever by sewing their label over the stitched part where the dyneema connects back to itself (the bartack) this way you get a nice seamless loop and that edge doesn't catch on your neck when removing a shoulder sling and it doesn't catch on a biner when clipping. Love them.

These things are great, not as teeny weenie as the metolious but light as flight! I bought a bunch and use them with my dyneema shoulder slings. Cut some weight and bulk from my previous biners. Would love to replace all the biners on my cams with these, one day i will!

Style for miles (and elevation)

This hat rips, you will not find a better one (or anything even close to as cool) in the shops around Jackson, Wyoming. Grand Teton NP is great and this hat is stylish, fits well, not too goofy huge cheesy cheap trucker hat. Has a nice retro vibe but is modern and mature. Love it. 10/10 five stars! Wore the damn thing on top of the summit! and the shirt, money goes back into the park! Nothing to lose here.

I grew up skateboarding, have been using Shoe Goo for decades. I was in a pinch and needed shoe repair and purchased this as an alternative. I will not be returning to the Goo. This stuff is THINNER, in the best way. Shoe Goo can sometimes be so thick (and dries in the tube so quickly) that is doesn't spread very well or easily and can't fill and seal the little crevices. This stuff is great. Repaired all my climbing and approach shoes. Love so much I am buying more and not turning back.

Awesome fit / comfort
5 5

Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I was unsure what size to get, right in between M/L as I normally wear a 34" waist and 30" inseam but the Medium size fit PERFECT. Great fabric, super soft, comfy, good mobility and stretch, look cool and high function of all 4 pockets. Really happy with this purchase and impressed on BD's softgoods lately.

These are the best nuts. Bought this and paired with a set of the DMM Peenut No. 1-5 and I've never touched my pro set of BD stoppers again. Learn to place them and you can use them for common and offset placements. Featherweight and superior function.

it's fine, does what it says it does, wasn't over priced, only fault I might point out, is this webbing is not rated for a belay. Will hold your axe to your arm, but in hindsight I would probably purchase an inexpensive piece of 1/2" or 3/4" tubular webbing and fix my own leash, so it wouls double function for boot belays and anchors...

Cool Gloves, make me feel like MJ Thriller jacket. Did stain my hands red a couple times when you sweat. Nice construction, I feel like the fit is a little larger than I expected compared to my BD and Metolious gloves.
