Good Carabiner for locking in. Twist lock does take an extra second to lock but works fine.
Initial Impressions - got these as my last pair of five ten black wings had a hole in the toe. These shoes have great grip and I love the five ten rubber. They have been great in the gym and I am eager to try them out outdoors once the snow clears up.
Biking home from class after dark made me invest in a better light, and I have been so pleased with this. The light is incredible and I feel so safe at night. Just make sure to take off your bike when parking your bike so it doesn't get stolen. Small enough to fit easily in a coat pocket.
I wear this beanie probably five days a week. Looks nice, great to wear while climbing or hiking. Fits nice and tight but isn't so tight that it hurts your head after a while, which has been a problem I've had with other beanies.
Comfortable and functional. This harness has the necessary features to hold all your gear, and provides great comfort for when you need a break on the wall. adjustable waist belt is great for adjusting for gym climbing and climbing with several layers on.
These boots are exactly what I was looking for - a pair of low rise boots for the colder months that look nice enough for nights out on the town but comfortable enough to wear all day. Merrell always provides good structured and supportive shoes to avoid the pains of some boots. I wear these while walking from class to class all day and they keep my feet feeling good. Very happy with this purchase.
Initial impressions - Just used this sleeping bag in the desert in probably 25 degrees and stayed warm the whole night. The hood feature works great and allows me to sleep without a hat on and keeps my head warm! Nice little pocket near your chest is great for keeping your phone warm to avoid losing battery from cold nights. Love this sleeping bag and excited to use it for more backpacking trips.
Got these gloves primarily for biking in the winter when my hands are frozen to the handlebars. They have worked great and were a great addition to some winter backpacking trips as well. The knit part of the gloves are great for tucking into your jacket sleeves.
Third Carhartt beanie I've owned. Great fit and style throughout the years.
I bought this for my brother as a Christmas present. This is what he had to say.Really sleek streamlined fit that allows freedom of movement. Fits long which is what I was looking for. I have never owned a technical vest and was surprised at how toasty it keeps my core even when not wearing a layer over it.
My brother wears these to bike around urban Chicago on rainy and snowy days. He is really stoked on how quick the full zip works to get them on and off while still looking pretty fashionable. Love the color options. He plans on using them for a summer backpacking trip as they are very light and packable.
Thin and light feel like wearing no sock at all if they were not so soft.
A great sock for hot summer hikes.
Second pair after only a month or two of the first pair. Does that explain how great these are? I explained how extremely versatile and cute these are in my first review which is why I already got another. The first pair was in cargo green and my new pair is coal. Both colors are stunning and the coal is a very sleek looking grey that I use a lot for wearing out. Lets see how long I can wait until I buy another pair!
Great pants for climbing. Got these for gym climbing season but I can tell these will be great year round for a breathable pant for summer climbing outdoors. The material is soft and flexible and not restrictive in movement at all. Might fit a little on the larger side which I was anticipating since they are supposed to fit loose, but the XS is just small enough to fit me at 5'5" 105. Great purchase.
Loved the look of these shoes when I received them but they were too big. I'm normally a size 8 but I'm guessing a 7.5 would have been better. There wasn't any 7.5's in stock, so I ordered the Paxton Faux Fir in a 7.5 and hope that will fit. The Faux Fir looks to be the same style but with fir on the inside but I will know better when I receive those as to how similar the shoes are. I liked the look of these, so I'm hoping the faux fir will work out.
This top has a beautiful, slim fit. Looks incredibly cozy with the knit sleeves and has a cute low cut neckline and button down to keep it playful. It hugs your body in a soft, relaxed way that looks stylish and comforting. Perfect top to wear out on winter weekends. Might fit a little on the small side, but with the stretchy material I like the tight fit it gives (and is still very comfortable), but if you'd rather have a little looser fit consider ordering a size up.
Most versatile pants hands down. I've been wearing cargo green and I’ve already bought another pair in coal. Comfortable, stretchy, cute and durable. Dress down or dress up. These are great and cute not only to wear out day to day but durable and flexible enough to climb / hike in. Material is great and has kept me dry in some light rain while biking which is a huge plus. Can’t recommend these enough!
I originally got this beanie purely for the vibrant orange color of autumn leaf which reminds me of golden fall leaves. I was very happy with such nice quality design and quality material as well. This hat is amazing, thick and warm for winter days yet stylish to wear out. It fits a little big if you like that and gives a nice relaxed look.
