Great for chalking your hands. Has a biner clip or a waist strap. The little pocket is nice for keys or headlamps, power shots or a small snack. Also has a toothbrush loop on the side of the pouch. The only thing I didn't like was the clip to close the pic was on the left side and I prefer the right. Otherwise a great product that gets the job done.

The Smoothy is a great climbing shoe, easy to edge in and the toe is great for smearing and small ledges. I don't know about the wear of the rubber, but these shoes are not supposed to stretch. So if you decide to buy them, don't go too far under your street shoe size of you will hate them.


Coffee Sling - 2 Pack (Manufacturer link) Average Rating = 4.00/5 Average Rating : 4.00/5

The Coffee sling, while not just for coffee, is a great little product for camping or climbing. When attached to the roof of the tent, sipping is made easy and spilling is made almost impossible. The webbing extends over a foot and a half and easily reaches the tent floor if needed. It is also attachable to a climbing rope or harness for an easy to cary drink sling. The top also has a cinch rope to keep your drink secured or your personals in!

Of course, if you don't want anything to drink, you can hang your personals such as a watch, pen & pad, rings, mp3 players, earrings, etc.. They pack down very small and are very light.
