This is my first slipper, i bought these to use indoors mostly but have found myself using them outdoors for bouldering. I have really enjoyed the shoe so far, fits my foot like a glove. I downsized 2 sizes, it stretchs about a size. They killed my feet when i bought them but now they are great. The downturned toe is really amzing and i love it for steap stuff. The shoe can edge on a credit card, and is great for pockets too. Its a really great shoe the only downfall is the rubber. The rubber isn't the stickest of rubbers out there. I would love to have these shoes with stealth rubber, but so far they have held up really well. I would definately recommend them, especially if you get a good deal. I got mine for $59 from mountian tools.

These nuts are great! For $35 you can't go wrong. They are color cordinated so they are pretty easy to identify. I would like it if the heads were anodized but for the price i really don't care. I use these nuts as my secondary nuts on my rack. I haven't had a problem with the nuts sliding (except for number 7 every now and then). They offer great protection are pretty easy to place and if you can't clean one who cares cause they are so cheap. Only complaint i would have is not anodized heads but since they are colored and number where the wires connect you can still identify them easily. Great nuts i would highly recommend buying them due to there price and just being a good basic nut.

These are pretty much like the ABC Huevos if not the same (I haven't yet seen the huevos but thats what i heard). Its a good solid nut. Anodizing makes them easy to identify. Also has numbers and smily faces on #4-13. I bought them as a complete set and didn't realize that 1-3 were a waste of money. So if you buy from REI don't bother with the first three. All in all a solid nut that i can recommend to others.

Pretty decent board especially if you are on a budget or don't have a lot of space. THis is the first board that i bought but i have used the simluator before. I liked the simulator because there was a little more to the board. But this one has allt he basics. The jugs are nice along with the center 3 finger hold and jug. I have it in my dorm room and it basically does what i want. No bells or whistles with it. Overall i would recommend this board.

Great locker. These were the first ones i bought. Strong and sturdy. The feel like they will last forever. They are a bit heavy. Other than that they are a great basic locker.
