Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is no regular chalk bag, it's a chalk bag made by Arcteryx. Arcteryx seems to make all their products with a little magic. This bag is no exception. First day using this, I went from being a lousy 5.10 leader to crushing 5.14X multi pitch mixed alpine routes. I can also knee bar on any route. Buy this chalk bag and climb with the gods!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

In the outdoor industry, there are a lot of smoke and mirrors when it comes to the difference between products. You've got to ask yourself if the logo is worth double what another company is asking. That being said, every Arcteryx product I've owned is worth every penny. I've used high end Petzl and BD harnesses, and they don't compare to the build, quality, and performance of this. Perfect Stitching, rock solid materials, and it's so light you forget your wearing a harness. I've yet to use the ice clipper slots, but come ice season I expect them to work perfectly. No complaints from me, I'd recommend to anyone.

Used this on the ascent of the Pfeifferhorn, still half covered in snow as of June 22nd. This is a basic axe and served me well ascending and descending super steep snowy inclines. It is fairly light, very strong and sharp out of the box. The shaft can be a bit slippery depending on your glove situation, so connecting it to your body is a good idea. Would recommend as far as basic mountaineering axes go.

Works perfectly

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

These served me well on a late season climb of the Pfeifferhorn. There was quite a bit of snow up to the ridge, and then some mixed climbing/scrambling to get to the base of the summit. These handled everything well, and looked unphased after heavy rock abuse. They also work seamlessly with my Nepal Cubes. They adjusted to size within a minute and they're rock solid. Easy to get into as well if you've ever skied and understand the binding concept. Only downside is they're a bit on the heavy side, but I can live with that. 9/10

These boots are amazing in the alpine. Out of the box, I took them on a journey of rock and snow to the top of the Pfeifferhorn. They performed well on the rock approach and worked seamlessly with my camp crampons. They are much more nimble than they appear and feel at first contact, they're light and sensitive enough that you could do some pretty technical maneuvers on rock without a worry. They're also stiff enough to handle some snow without crampons if you're climbing through a short mixed section. Although they will take some time to break in, they were fairly comfortable for being brand new. They're built for war with the mountains and I expect them to last for quite some time

This is one of the greatest jackets for the winter I have ever had. I love that I can go outside in any temperature, knowing I am going to be warm without a doubt. It is very similar to wearing a sleeping bag, very hefty and comfortable.
