johngchrist's Bio

I have been in SLC Utah for around 9 years and have been at backcountry.com the entire time. I like to do everything and know a lot about gear.

When I'm not outside, you can FIND ME IN THE BACKCOUNTRY.COM RETAIL STORE!!!

I just love it there. So many things and so many things of each thing.

2607 S. 3200 W., in Salt Lake City.

My first impressions are that these aren't super comfortable. They rubbed my achilles and felt a little funny. That has improved with wear. They effectively have no arch support though. If this is something you need, you should know you will need to purchase separate soles.

I usually run the extra chunky And got these for the lady of my life and she prefers these over the fatter ones. If you run bare handed these get pretty slippery when they get wet. That is the only reason for the 4 starts. The install nicely with copious amounts of rubbing alcohol and some strength as long as you work fast. Also make sure you have the seem where you like it.

This is an amazing sport crag bag. It acts as a bucket to easily access and see everything in your pack while simultaneously keeping it in one spot so you aren't spewing gear all over the crag. It holds a lot. When you want even more, you can strap your rope on the top too. The pictures here leave a little to be desired, but like I said, the inside is a bucket. It has three mesh side pockets inside and an additional zippered pocket. It comes with a tarp and a zippered spot for that too. I would say the only pitfall would be if you overload it with trad gear etc and try to do a long hike, the waist strap isn't super comfortable for this. It's functional for the short approach sport days or lighter loads on longer hikes though. I would definitely buy another one.

Definitely a different mix than the regular sealant. Lots more fibrous and seems to stick to the inside of the tire more and not stay suspended in liquid form. Not really sure if this is a good or bad thing. I don't think I would run this all the time but for bike trips or races I would go with the stans race over the regular stans.

This puffy is sooo warm. It is the hands down only puffy I've been able to belay in that I don't need extra layers in addition to it when it's below 45 out. Zips both directions too for belay convenience. I will most likely buy it again if anything every happens to my current one.
