330 foot Bag!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Have the Large Size. It fits 330 ft. of 8mm rope. And a bud also has Large Size and fits 300 ft. of 8.3mm canyon-line. The double straps on the side allows carry as separate back-pack or evenly straps it to your main pack (where you'd normally strap your snow-board vertically.. see photo). One of the best things about this rope-bag is it stands up by itself (even when empty), making stuffing the rope back in, especially on solo trips, easier and faster. There's even enough room above the rope to secure a helmet within the mesh brim on approach. Bonus!

Previously used mostly spherical goggles, but now realize the view through these POC Retinas is far superior. The sphericals seem almost blurry compared to these. It's like going from 720p to 1080p (or 4k these days =) And, instead of just a 32 color palette, the Retinas show a million colors! I see every shade of snow-white and can anticipate all the variations of the terrain, even at high-speed. Thanks POC and Zeiss!
And of course, big thanks to bc for their professional service and quick shipping.

Quality material, light poles, good ventilation. Dimensions are actually tapered: 34 (head) x 87 (length) x 24 (foot). It's just enough to fit a mummy bag inside.. and nothing else. The pack will have to stay out under the vestibule. After all, it is a one-man tent. Durr. With how narrow and tall it is, I'm weary it'll be like a sail in stronger wind and topple like a tractor-trailer. Though, at just over 3 lbs. it's only a pound or two heavier than a regular bivy. But, for car-camping, I bring a two-person tent to fit me and my stuff inside. For back-packing, this is a light-weight solution.

Fit: True to size

Mainly got the Hurricane Jacket and Pants for emergency rain-gear during summer hikes in Utah. They compact nice and flat into my day-pack and are easy to don when needed for downpours during a recent hike to Ben Lomond and Willard Peak. Kept me totally dry! Plus, the armpit zipper vents are convenient to cool you off while you're working it up a steep incline. The hand-pockets are also zippered and roomy as is the left-chest pocket which fits a camera or phone for quick-draws.
On a subsequent climb to Twin Peaks above Snowbird, the Jacket worked as a solid wind-breaker too against the 50 knot gusts blowing over the peaks and down the North East Ridge Route.
Very happy with the product and so got a second color!
