MY XP rocks!!! 5 out of 5 stars

I love this headlamp, I've used mine in many remote places around the world, in hot, cold, and/or wet environments. The battery life is excellent and the battery indicator is a handy feature. I have owned my XP for about a year now and it has held up better then any other lamp I have ever had. The brightness is amazing also. Do yourself a favor and get this lamp.

They seem like a nice shoe, these are my first five tens because i needed a velcro shoe. i went with these over the anasasi's for fit. I have been climbing with the Lasportive Venoms for the last 6 months and love them because they seem to hug my foot better then any shoe out there. However with a poorly placed heel hook i have pulled the heel out of them. Anyway my only complaint is that the Galileo is not as soft as the Venom and i am hoping with use they will soften up. I had trouble "feeling" some of the normal foot holds that i can with my venoms. The rubber does seem to be pretty sticky but i havn't noticed much difference over the venoms. One note i will mention is that i havn't really gotten the galileos broken in yet and i hope they soften up and get more comfortable with time so i can do some longer sport routes without having to worry about the venoms.
