Familiarity: I've used it several times

"These ice screws are, in my opinion, the only ones currently worth bringing on an alpine climb. The weight savings compared to steel screws are very significant, especially in the longer lengths. I chose to carry one 17cm screw, and two 21cm screws. The 17cm screw is to clip myself to while making a v-thread (Abalakow anchor), and the 21cm screw is to make the v-thread. The second 21cm screw is simply in case I drop one; My survival was dependent upon making a ton of rappels (about 40-45), the majority of which were on v-threads, so I needed to be able to efficiently make solid v-threads even if I messed up and dropped one ice screw."

Same bottle as the regular podium, slightly softer to handle, and keeps liquids marginally colder (Is that worth the price?).

BUT, there are softer *cough* (Specialized Purist) and the nozzle is a nuisance to clean when used with anything other than water, thus reducing the life of the bottle and possible growth spots for mold and funk.

I had bought these thinking they were the best upgrade to water bottles since ice and YES, they are great, BUT they present some of the same issues other water bottles have.

One is that it could be softer *cough* (Specialized Purist) and two is that the nozzle is a nuisance to clean when used with anything other than water, thus reducing the life of the bottle and possible growth spots for mold and funk. Two stars off for each of those and a little hint for the consumer.

Check the Capo bottles in the bike section?

Ripped!

After a little high speed misstep I hooked my toe on sharp rock and ripped the toe! Its been over 9 months of steady use, and even the rip won't be enough to stop these, as I'll just glue it up and keep rocking. But I thought I'd share. THIS IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO BE A KNOCK AGAINST THESE SHOES. If anything its a pro they are awesome still.

I find a good pair of shades essential. I can forgo most other accessories but shades have to be there. These are them. On just about all excursions these make the cut. Super Light and fit well enough to forget they are even there. REALLY!The dark lens are great in general but for big mountain days or true exposure these aren’t enough, but that’s where another set comes into play. The lighter lens work well in low light and just as well for just keeping stuff out of your eyes.My only gripe is that the top bar comes directly into my line of sight while cycling. I gave it a few weeks to really see what was what, but when bent over the bars it really gets in your vision. It may just be a personal fit issue but worth noting.

What is there not to like? A Lightweight tent that is quick and intuitive to set up. At 3lbs 14.5oz its not the lightest of options. But in the "Fast-Fly" setup the weight & bulk drops to 2lbs 12oz. The tent fabric is quick drying. Additionally it fits two medium sized people snugly. All in all a fantastic tent.

Not really sure why there aren’t other reviews on here...

This Jacket is a Godless Monster!

The fit is perfect, when winter gear begins to feel bulky and restrictive; the Heathen remains mobile and agile. The pockets are placed well above harness level. The rest of the details, I can basically agree with Cedar on. A perfect shell. Mine weighs 14.9 oz in a size Large.

Wet Water Ice Climbing?

When you need a true shell, and a wind shirt wont cut it, because of either a full on downpour or just abrasion resistance, this is my go to.

I think people feel this jacket lacks durability because they are used to seperate layered Jackets and not the thinner Pro-Shell material.

A simple minimalist design.

There is no inside zip pocket (maybe that's just my version) but only the two outer pockets.
