Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this pack for summer rock cragging, long alpine days, and winter ice climbing. I can stuff a large summer trad rack, plenty of water, harness, food, jacket, etc. in this pack. It also rides comfortably when carrying, fully loaded or lightly packed on a multipitch route. The gear loops are fantastic! It also has a nice variety of small inner zip pockets for small items. Can't say it enough. Love this pack!

Fantastic ropes. My 3rd and 4th Mammut ropes to date. They have a great supple feel, hold nice tight knots, are easy to handle, and are thus far very durable. I have used them in summer and winter, and they perform just as expected. Vey light weight, and is a nice option to have in the pack as a 2nd descent rope, especially if something happens to your lead rope while still ascending. With the 8.5 mm diameter, it is good peace of mind knowing that we have basically (yes yes, I know it is technically not certified as a single) another lead rope in the pack on big alpine ascents in case something major happens to the main line. Would but again!

So far, have only purchased the #5 peanut as an addition to the DMM offsets. I will get more in the smaller size eventually. Fantastic stoppers, place very well and secure due to the irregular shape.

After having used several brands of stoppers, I like DMM over all the rest. They are lighter, and seat better due to the groove that runs lengthwise down the convex face of the head. Great nuts.

After getting these offsets, I hardly ever place my regular DMM Wallnuts anymore. For flaring cracks, they are simply the best, and as for placing them in general, they seem to seat better than the Wallnuts do, simply due to their irregular shape. Love em!

I am curious as to why no other company offers offset stoppers?

Comfortable, seem relatively durable so far about about 10 days of use. Only complaints are the small pocket size, and the fact that there are no built in clips to attach season passes too. And "insulated" is a joke. I can't believe how much extra these pants are for the pititful amount of insulation in them. Also, the BC.coms photo of the heritage blue is awful. They are a nice blue color, not the almost jet black they have pictured. Who's doing your photos, anyways...? All things aside though, very happy with the pants.

I ordered the 140mm version of this skin. Delivery was faster than expected. Never got to try these skins out, though. If you have fat powder skis, DO NOT get these skins. The largest front tip loop size that G3 makes is for a maximum size of 120mm ski tip. As we all know, that is on the smaller end of powder ski sizes. Shame on G3, by the way, for discontinuing their XXL tip loop size.

So all in all, my main gripe is that backcountry.com did not make it clear as to what size tip loop would come with the ski. Obviously if I am ordering a 140mm skin, I am going to need tip loop larger than 100mm. I have since returned the product, and will not be replacing it with anything from this website.
