After years of using sewn nylon runners, I decided to try a more lightweight Dyneema sling for my anchoring system. The feel of Mammut Contact slings is great. The sewn edges are smooth instead of having an edge and they take up so little space compared to the old slings.

I bought this pack for my wife for an upcoming trip to Japan. She wanted a small carry-on suitcase that could also be carried as a pack. She loved the concept, but the detachable daypack is a bit big (she’s 5’0”). When the straps are cinched down to make it fit at the shoulders, the stiffness of the back makes it difficult for her to put on and take off. Also, carrying the main section as a backpack would be more comfortable if it had a hip belt.

Looked nice, bit on the large side. Thought it still would work
well for my belay device. Had problems with the slider in the gate area to open.
Maybe my fingers are too fat? Naw, my wife's skinny fingers had the same
problem. Needed two hands to operate, much difficulty, so I returned the item.

Great shoe. Comfortable and fits to size. No problem with the
heel cup, over time it could become damaged by jamming the
foot into the shoe without loosening the laces. The sole seemed slick on the concrete, but once on the trail you could feel the grip. No problems hiking with a heavy load
on wet rock.

I like the way the shovel handles. The 10 inch blade fits in my
pack well.It seems more compact than my previous shovel. It's a difficult to get the saw out. Only flaw is the length of the saw which is 8-9inches(my previous saw was 18inches).

This is a very nice flask. Large opening for drinking and easier to pour liquids into. First thing I did was test my alcohol to make sure it didn't turn black. I finally was able to store drink in it for over a week and had to leeching problems like cheaper flasks. Wish they had a slightly bigger size.

I bought these for work.Heavier cotton is nice takes abuse. I use them to climb in, because of their looseness I can high
step into moves. The material is more abrasive resistant
for off width climbing, Really enjoy these pants.I need to roll
up the cuffs a little to prevent the heels from steppin on the pants.

I bought these for work or rock climbing.They fit true to size in the waist. It seemed the length was long so I had to measure
the inseam. Maybe because they're loose in the crotch area?
Anyway, I returned them because of a weird fold in the front.
Comfortable fit, just didn't look right.

I bought these for my wife.The fabric on these pants is so soft and stretchy; they are more comfortable than pajamas, but look good. The outer fabric is sturdy and they are fantastic for hiking and climbing in colder weather. However, they are super long on her, and it was extremely painful for her to hem them because of how the lining is sewn on to the pant leg. But she still loves them.

I bought these for my wife.The pants are true to size (she's 5’ and 102 lb and generally weasr a size 2). The back is cut a little higher than the front, and the waist actually fits her. Usually if the legs fit, the waist is too big and then she has to wear a belt or use the built-in cord to tighten the waist. The Syrah color is nice and the fabric is perfect for climbing, hiking or hanging out. It's too bad she had to drastically hem the pant legs, but that’s par for the course.

Got this for a layering system when I go out into the
wilds. Seemed to fit OK, tru to size. But returned it
immediately because it looked awful and felt bunchy
around the armpits shoulder edge region

Nice layer. Thinner than I was expecting. Fits nicely
to my size, so I guess its true to size. I would like to wear
a thicker layer underneath, but then the back portion gets
tight. The cuffs are close to the wrist and sleeves are the right length. Pocket zippers are 1/4 in to 1/2 in deep
inset so the toggles are hard to reach. Otherwise it's a great
layer for the outdoors or when I go skiing.

I bought these as a gift for my wife. She really likes the brand
and is planning on using them for running when the weather
gets better(too much snow and ice). She said they're comfortable and loves the cushioning in the soles.

Nice Jacket, keeps one nice and warm. Pockets are deep.
don't really use the inside pockets, but large for map storage. Seemed to have flat spots in the down, but they puffed up. Cuffs are loose around the wrist. It seemed to fit true to size, not larger like in the old days. I was a bit concerned about small areas being bunchy on the horizontal seams or bottom of chest pocket,but I guess I
can live with it(see product photo).

I got this to replace an old Marmot Down Jacket.
Fits true to size,sleeve lengths were ok. Love the blue.
Don't care much for the stuff sack. A bit disappointed with the the thickness. Seems very thin, more like a sweater layer. Cuffs would curl
under, which began to bother me. I don't understand how this could keep you toasty unless you're active. Sitting around, I still needed more layers than I was expecting to keep warm. Not that impressed, but keeping it to supplement my layer system.

Nice little unit to carry to the crags where power drills
are "verboten" . Sure it takes a bit of work to make one hole,
but the product is light, fits well, and functions as to directions. A bit awkward getting the SDS bit it .

Bought this as a boldering supplement. I knew it was non-foldable, can't really attach to a backpack to carry. You need to use the handle. Way too stiff, hard as board. I love the exterior and thought I could replace the cell foam. Zipper tab is hard to reach. Broke the zipper trying to pull the foam out. Why put one in, when it's not functional?I would feel guilty returning it. So I'm going to try and get it modified, making it more fold-able and with a softer cell foam.
