Large Crash Pad 5 out of 5 stars

I've been climbing with, sleeping on, and traveling with this pad for 4 years now. Still not bottoming out, and the diagonal hinge system keeps you from contacting the ground because it's reinforced with velcro. The only thing I wish it had is some sort of wrap around the side material so things don't accidently slid out of the bottom or sides of the pad. On the other hand, on a trip to Hueco we found that two of these pads perfectly filled the entire bottom of our two man tent. We slept like kings.

Great Shoe. They are very sensitive and will take a little getting used to especially if you are coming from a board-lasted lace-up. Be sure to get them tight as they are unlined and will probably stretch up to a full size. Although it is a slingshot rand that hugs the back of your foot, the heel cup tends to be fairly large resulting in your heel popping out when hooking. Also, your feet will be cherry red ;)

Next to the La Sportiva Cobra, this is one of the best shoes I've owned yet. The rubber is high quality, the craftsmanship is superb and I am in love. It performed very well on granite slab, in the crack, and on micro-edges and crystals. A great all around quality shoe.

Love it, love it, love it! I mainly got this pack to hold climbing gear and am certain I will use it for backpacking as well. It feels all around good everywhere. The hip belt is adjustable for torso length (within a couple of inches), the frame stay is removable, hydration compatible, and lightweight! It's an awesome pack for the price and I definitely recommend it to any woman looking for a great technical day pack/lightweight weekend backpack.

I love how lightweight and compact it is. It is a very simple design; on/off, no in between. However, it just gives a very general grayish light, not focusing down on anything making it slightly harder to see obstacles. It's great for reading at night, or doing close up work like cooking or repairing something.
