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

Got it for the lady-friend so I'm not sure if it's actual feedback, or she was just being nice Haha! Said it was easy to put on, comfortable enough to have on all day, and easy to sit back and belay with. Only had good things to share!

Leave it to Vissla to come in clutch with the coolest shirt out there. The Calipher fits like a dream, isn't tight, but isn't excessively baggy. The design is different for every shirt so you know that they're genuinely unique. Love it to death

PLEASE keep in mind that it isn't safe to click this while belaying because you definitely are opening it while on belay. It's fun, just be safe. This model is suggested for belaying and not for hangers or cleaning due to it's size. The smaller version with the gold lock is for cleaning! It's small enough that it won't get caught in the hangers!

Climbing pants have the best range. From corduroy slacks, to swimming trunks! You can pretty much climb in anything. I have pants specifically for gym (which are baggy, tough, and really breathable) and for outdoor expeditions (strong, light, and fitting). These pants are the perfect in-between love child! I'm wearing them at the desk while I work, and then I can go climb gym or crag right after and still have these suckers on! They fit me like a dream which is not an understatement. I'm 6'3", 190, and these fit perfectly. They are breathable, stretchy, and look great. I need more color options and then I'll make these my default pants for life.

This will be my 3rd Arcade belt, not because the previous are worn down or anything, but because I like them so much! It's stretchy, light, and the plastic buckle makes it easy for airports! (keep that in mind, it's a plus) The only thing I'm a little bugged about is how hard it is to loosen and tighten the belt. Once you have it set though, just trust the stretch of the belt!

I mean SURE, you could use an ikea bag or a custom trader joe bag that you made, but check this out! It's light, it's got a tarp, and it's waterproof. It can also be used as a fly for your Stone Garden Crag pack! It fit's pretty much any size of rope so you don't need to worry about sizing.

Putting these on made me feel like I could send anything. They're soft inside, lace easily, and broke in surprisingly quick. They do leave this post-surgery-iodine look on your feet so you can have fun with that. "You just got out of surgery and you're climbing?" it's a lot of fun. They edge extremely well, smear like a dream, and can hold a hook. When putting them on, it's best to slide your heel as far back as you can and then lace up. There is a little bit of dead space around the heel but it can be resolved by implementing the method above^. I can muster enough willpower at this point to wear them for 4-5 pitches but then I really need to take them off. When breaking them in, every time you put them on, a new hot spot will show up until your whole foot is tough.

When these dropped on the BD site I was stoked out of my mind! I used the Momentum's and the Aspects before so I was ready for whatever they threw at me next. Boy was it a curve-ball. These things are stiff! I was walking on the pads on the sides of my feet. I could edge really well and feel whatever I was trying to project with ease, but I had to take them off after each problem. Another thing I should mention is the dead space. I'm not against velcro but if you're going to do it, please make it adjustable for a wide range. I put these on and cinched them down as best as I could but there was still dead space around my heel, and the top of my foot. It needs a tad more work but then these will be excellent!

Have you ever had to run in snowboots? You know, everyone left you at the car while you were putting on a backpack and locking up and their chatting it up as they walk away. It's hard isn't it? Your ankles are twisting, and as you push off, your foot slides out early and your ankle is now level to your shoulder. Forget those worries! These boots keep you on the ground and stabilized! When walking through the city, you're looking stylish, chic, and truly and man of fashion. The only way that you can go wrong with these is with sizing. They do fit a little large but it still works for my wide feet.

If you aren't already convinced by the other reviews for this jacket, then you're being to skeptical. Just get it. It's classy, slick, Storm-Proof, and downright dashing. It fits perfectly over a suit and still gives you enough room to breathe and dance if you're feeling that crazy about it. I am 6'3" and 190 lbs. with broad shoulders and a chiseled face... It fits like a dream. I thought of getting it in large but it's true, Size up! The cuffs come to the middle back of my hand but doesn't come to my knuckles so to me, it's exactly what you want when it's storming. I recommend gloves so the experience becomes even better. Just get the Coat!

This is awesome! Lots of down in the hood, elastic cuffs, waist cinchers, deep pockets, slim fitted fit, and a radical colour. This is just solid, I feel warm. Its like being wrapped in a giant blanket. I never thought I would have a bright caution cone orange jacket, but I rock it, its nice, Love it.

She loves these sandals! seriously cant stop raving every time she looks at them! It's an easy slip on that is actually secure. The back strap, even though it looks simple, does the trick! The leather and shoe construction feels durable, and strong! She say's the construction is of excellent quality, probably because there's a rumor that these shoes were hand-crafted by Antonio Banderas... I wouldn't have it any other way ;)
But seriously, She want's the pair in black too so, I might have to get these again.

So I've had friends who've purchased the synchilla and loved it, but man! They didn't try this baby on! Suuuper lightweight, cozy, comfy, throw-on item that I've been needing. It isn't as thick as the original Snap-T, but that's why I got it, so I wouldn't feel so muggy and hot and have to take it off when I'm too warm. A little bummed they it doesn't come with a front pocket but you get over it. I purchased the Forge Grey in Large just because of the purple lining. It's such a cool look. I got it in a large so there would be a bit of a baggy look. It's comfortably long enough so that when you raise your arms up, it doesn't go past your waist-line. If you don't think that you can pull it off, you definitely can! Grey looks awesome on anyone so make that buy! The collar can fold down to look...dashing... OR... you can keep the collar up for that slick, confident, mountain-boy look. Trust me, this is worth the purchase!

This is an awesome pad. Simple, functional, and comfy to fall on. I really like how the backpack straps can be covered when using the pad. I only wish that it had more straps to grab. When you're moving from one boulder to another, and you've got your shoes, bottle, and socks in one hand, It'd be great to have another handle instead of practicing your pinches with the pad. Final assessment, does the job nicely, and keeps your ankles intact! I'd definitely use this again and again.

I own a pair in 12.5 and I got these for my brother. The photo doesn't quite do the shoe justice, the Black is darker, the Curry is darker, and the blue isn't so light, it's got that desired "manly touch..?" Awesome shoe for Gym, good venting, but the heel can get real sweaty. They fit smaller than you'd think, but stretch out half a size. Edging can be a bit of a challenge if you aren't cranking HARD but it'll all come together in the end. Comfy, and easily adjustable. The Velcro holds it's own and doesn't move around while climbing. Quite comfy, can hold a shape, and are easily washable! A simple shoe for a simple life....
