John Martin's Bio

Just moved to SLC after living in Asia for the last three years. Originally from south Florida, I enjoy being outdoors, especially now that I no longer live in the heat and humidity. Im a skateboarder first and climber second, though Im climbing more than I skate these days.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

...after you decided to stick to the ethics (or laws) of hand bolting. One quick wack to the head and everything will be over. If you can bear through it, the heavier weight gives your drill a slight edge over your home hammer and your belayer will thank you for having the leash. And after putting your first bolt in, you'll be enlightened to why all your classics are run out. Now that you got your creds, go buy a hammer drill

Small handle for those with bigger hands but still gets the job done. After your first bolt, you'll understand why those old school routes are so damn run out! Now imagine doing it on lead and in boots....

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

I thought it'd be nice to have for backpacking and although that stands true, i wouldn't recommend if you have chopping wood planned. Its good for small pieces of wood and minimal chopping but the paracord slid off the handle after a few mins of chopping and even when it was on, it never felt good to hold. Also, with the short handle, it never feels like you can get a good swing in. Is it flint or a magnesium stick? It was hard to get sparks out of it, but found when i scraped off slivers into a pile, then got a spark on that, it lit up like gun powder.

Bought these for my S.O, here are her thoughts, "wow! really excited i stumbled upon these shoes! Toms have been historically comfortable for me so when i saw this fancier pair that was also super stylish I was stoked. They fit perfect, and stay on really well for this style. I have long skinny and bony feet and the still fit really well. I do get some hot spots on my heel when wearing them for more than a few hours/walking for more than a mile but I thin they need to break in a bit (I also have super sensitive feet). Overall, LOVE these shoes!"

Bought these for my other half, here are her thoughts "Wow, i love these pants! I've only worn them a few times but have been wearing them while biking to work in the morning. I didn't expect them to be breathable when I first tried them, but the are! I am also stoked on the fit, I generally have trouble getting pants that fit in the legs and waist (usually legs are too tight while the waist is perfect) but these pants seems to do it right on all fronts. The colorful stitching is a nice touch on the pockets, not to mention the pockets are actually big enough to fit a phone! Really looking forward to getting more use out of these.

I like this lock a lot, especially for the price. Purchased the medium size which ended up being a little too small to get the wheel, frame, and bike rack in but it does work really well in conjunction with a chain to get all the essentials safely locked up!

What else do you want in a jacket? well maybe arm-pit vents but for me, this is more of an emergency shell I take for day hikes and climbs. The taped seams means you'll be staying dry when the weather isn't on your side.

Got these shoes for my other half, here’s what she thought: I love these shoes! They have the right amount of support and squish but are also really light weight and low profile. I was torn with sizing, I am a solid 9 so I tried these in 8.5 and 9. The 9 felt great right away but after walking around the house I was worried about them being too big in the future. Went with the 8.5, within the first 2 full days of walking the stretches a bit to form to my feet. I’m so happy with them and want more colors!
