It’s not the most durable, but the bottom is slightly reinforced for walking around outside. I feel like they would get ripped up if you walk around on cement too much, but it’s great for snow camping. I took them on a winter turf trip and they we awesome to have instead of being stuck in ski boots all day.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My old roomate likes to fish a lot and I gave this to him as a birthday/going away gift we he left for Europe for a summer. I managed to read the first chapter before giving it away and found it insightful and inspiring.

These seem pretty legit, but I have yet to use them . The fit is true to size, they are super duper stiff and at first almost seem too stiff, but I think they will break in very well, and the vibram sole should help keep them stiff for multiple seasons.

I like the heel hug feature that cups around your ankle to prevent your heal from lifting, I think it'll really help while touring and getting pitted.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Very versatile bike that rides smooth over obstacles, and feels like a long travel bike. It is pretty playful for the size while maintaining an extremely stable feel. For reference, while biking back to the car from the trail, it was an effortless no hands cruise down hill, where as the hightower felt wobbly in the handle bars.

In my opinion, it corners well, can climb tech terrain great, and can roll over pretty big/steep obstacles without a problem. Its a great all around buy for anyone concerned about climbing efficiency on the more rugged trails and still looking to do it all.

I even took it to a pump track and hit some springy table tops. It preformed great and loading the suspension sprung me into a proper flow with out much need for a lot of speed or pedeling.

If you're looking to pedal uphill, and get on the more untamed trail, this is probably a great bike for you. I wouldn't really recommend this for shuttling DH.

Feel free to hit me up if you have questions or are wondering if this is the right bike for you.

I love the jacket, it's soft and supple, super light weight, pretty stretchy and dynamic and looks great. This works great inbounds and for ultra light backcountry travel. I really like the fit I'm 6'2" 165lbs and a size large is perfect for room to accommodate layers and still feel dynamic and nimble. I would be swimi g in an XL and a Medium may restrict movement while wearing layers. I really like the storm hood and overall style of this jacket.

My criticism is in the features. There is only one interior chest pocket (left side), a pass pocket on the arm (left side) and two exterior chest pockets. No pockets at the stomach level. There is no pocket to stash your skins, and the pit zips do not open enough to dump sufficient amounts of heat. They don't even come up to the arm pits.

Also this last one is a bit picky, but I don't like that the zipper is on the left side. I'm use to it now but it threw me for a loop at first.

These are an ultra aggressive shape and super stiff for when your pumping out before you hit the crux. Defiantly size up 1.5 to 2 full sizes depending on how much pain you like. Some people love it, but it's not for me. I had to return them.

This is a red point shoe and I wouldn't wear it for craggin around and getting mileage in.

Generally I like a stiff shoe like this to fit comfortably while standing.

My softer shoes I'm willing to size a little more snug.

Size Purchased: 11.5

I absolutely love these shoes. They are my everyday climbing shoe that are next level when it comes to comfort. This was my 4th pair of shoes and I'll always own a pair. They are are great for craggin around, long multi pitch, technical slab, and I really like them for crack. I wear them in the gym and boulder in them, but just upgraded to a more aggressive shoe (the arrowhead) for steeper climbs and delicate foot work.

True to size. I'm an 11.5 street shoe, and the 11.5 fit like a glove. They start to get a little painful after wearing them for long multipitch climbs with hanging belays so I try and take them off while belaying.

i don't have a child but I have some feedback from some customers. Nothing but positive feedback on this child's harness. It is extremely adjustable and can expand as your child grows and continues to climb. Below is some feedback from a customer.

(size XXS): "The lil guy is about 23 lbs and 15 months old. Fits great! Thanks! "

Super stretchy and dynamic, breathable and waterproof. I use it for multi pitch climbing and absolutely love it. It packs down so small and really helps keep you warm on a brisk morning, in the shade, or when your a few pitches up and the wind is hitting you on a hanging belay.

I recently used it for whit water rafting and it fit in the pocket of my PFD. I was jumping in and swimming freezing cold rapids a bunch, and even though it was completely submerged, I pulled it out of my pocket and it dried in 5 minutes and help me stay warm as the wind picked up.

I'm 6'2" 165 lbs
I'm pretty tall and skinny but have broad climbers shoulders a size medium fits and works well for climbing, but size large is a better fit and would accommodate layers better.

Really the best mid weight socks I've worn. I wear them skiing, but there are some better ski specific options like the PhD ski sock... Really they're my everyday winter sock when I want to stay warm and cozy, and I always bring a pair camping just in case it gets too cold at night.

I gave this as a wedding present stocked full of frost beverages.

This is literally the highest quality product I've had the pleasure of putting my hands on. Two blocks of ice kept my cans cold for easily over a week in the dry dessert heat.

Affordable, comfortable and durable... I've had these for several years now and they are still holding strong. They are my everyday foot wear and have traveled some interesting places with me. I'd say they have at least 100 miles of travel and I even wear them as my approach shoes for craggin around.

Overall quality is great for the price but not by any means something I would pay more then $30 for.

Size Purchased: Large

I' a big fan of this piece. Sure its a little bit shiny, but I really appreciate how it's extremely light weight and packableit is. It makes a phenomenal belay jacket and can easily stuff into the corners of your pack or what ever little free space you have available in your overstuffed pack.

It can have a slightly boxy fit if you dont size it right. I'm 6'2" 165 lbs and a 32 in waist, kind of a tall and skinny build and I thing the Large fits like a dream. If I were any smaller I would go medium, but I have somewhat broad shoulders and the medium was a little bit tight in the chest and shoulders.
