A trailside review of these excellent poles
Yo Backcountry.com will you make these in a short? Your inseams are particularly long.
This is a great helmet for the baginner or pro. Inexpensinve but durable and comfy. Need a helmet but not rich? buy this one period.
With or without leashes these are great tools. Durable and light. What else can I say they're solid.
I used these last season with great success. They performed as expected but not so great for steep ice. They are perfect for all other arenas of winter climbing and very durable. the edges stayed sharp longer than I expected.
Recently got this bag for spring and summer. Its very comfortable and hauls gear for three or four days. I wouldn't go much over forty pounds, but thats not what it was made for. Really like the trekking pole feature and the outside pockets are perfect for rain gear.
I love this bag! I'm a pretty small guy(5'6 145) and have tons of room in the reg. My clothes fit in the bottom without leaving me sufficeint room to roll around. My bag has seen 20 degree nights with no tent, and rain. In the rain(2 hours moderate) it held up great, with my breathing hole tightened up almost no rain got in and the water beads just shook off. Temp wise the rating is very accurate outside on a thermarest I was warm in twenty degree weather.
I've had this harness for years. From the gym to ice climbing, its comfy and versatile. If your a beginner or a pro this a great harness.
Don't have much to say, good weight, smooth, and although I haven't gotten it wet yet it's nice security. Would recommend to a friend.
I run my carabiner through the two smaller loops on my harness(not the main loop) and this biner leaves me plenty of room. Just great definately recommend.
If you don't have trekking poles get them now. These are light collapsable, and inexpensive. Great buy!!
Wonderful pants. Super durable, and well thought out. The pockets work great, and don't get in the way. Convertible pants are always good insurance for changing weather. Love em definitely recommend.
Mine isn't novel its just black but I do like that camo. Great piece of kit, nice around town or the camp fire, and the perfect pillow.
I friggin love these pants. From walking to work, scrabbling through scree and trees, or climbing. Stretchy and durable. No back pockets but why would you need them in the backcountry. Definitely recommend.
First of all these are very comfortable, the lacing and tongue design are great. They're easy to tune in by tightening the laces, for comfort or good feel. As others have stated probably not great for anything specific but good all around. I have used them in the gym, on granite and limestone and the performed fine. I also have had problems with the heel, I have narrow heels as it is but considering I got them from you guys for $32!!!!!!!! I'm more than happy.
Alright so this is a nice jacket, but I must see 30-40 a day on the streets so if you get one get some wacky color or sometihng. There are much better jackets out there for the price like monkey phurs or or just about any 300 weight fleece. So unless you need something to zip into your TNF jacket or you want to be like everybody else get creative and find another fleeced. Oops did I say fleeced.
This jacket is fine, but I agree with other reviewers that you could get a better jacket for the price. It does fine in snow, but saturates in rain and could be lighter. It needs a snow skirt to be a good ski coat, and lighter material to be a good rain shell. So all and all not to bad.
