Gamma LT Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars A serious performer that is well worth the money. I don't climb, but I do hike and backpack, and my preference has always been softshell pants. I was a Marmot guy for a while but after another pair found itself covered with Tenacious Tape (my fault...not Marmot's) I bit the bullet and dropped some bananas on the Gamma LT's after reading countless positive reviews. I've only had them for about three months but after just getting off a long solo in the Sierra's I'll say these are, by far, the best… Full review

Theta SL Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars My Theta SL has been my go-to jacket for any serious trip—Kilimanjaro, Himalayan treks, Inca Trail, spray jacket on a two-week Patagonian kayak trip and winter trips in the Sierras. This has been my favorite garment for many years. The 16 oz weight always seems a bit excessive for carrying around when it does not rain, but I find I wear it continuously when I do take it. I recall on Kili where I had both the Theta SL and a Marmot Precip, thinking that I would leave the heavier Theta SL in the… Full review

Psiphon SL Pullover

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I got this as a replacement for the Squamish. It's a decent jacket, but a little awkward. Fit Disclaimer: I'm 5'10" 155 lbs and very lean. I have small shoulders, a 29-inch waist and always fit a size small. I tend to run very hot as soon as I start moving. But get cold quickly. I find that Black Diamond Dawn Patrol series and Marmot fit me best and most brands' Trim fits feel normal to me. What works or doesn't for me may Or may not for you.  I've taken this jacket on a number of multi pitch climbs,… Full review

Bora 95

rated 5 of 5 stars A tough, durable backpack designed to last forever! You can fit a vast volume of things in this backpack, so it's perfect for longer trips, i.e. not for ultralight backpacking. Conditions: I'm living in Ecuador, and have been working a couple of years in the jungle, making maps. The humidity is constantly high and the vegetation is pretty much always wet, there are thorns and sharp rocks everywhere, and the elevations differences lead to quite high falls. I routinely fall into mud and every now… Full review

Axios 50

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light & Fast pack with fine balance between BPL and comfortable. Have used this pack for 2 years, especially summer season.  Harness and back panel is really cool and keeps you dry.  And light, not super light, and comfortable in low weight. Only problem is pain of shoulder, when load is over 15kg.
