Couloir

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Black Diamond Couloir harness has all the features you need for a glacier travel or mountaineering, and none of the features you don't. I have used this harness for about 40 days for glacier travel and mountaineering and it has held up to use and abuse well. The harness is lightweight with no padding, which is ideal for glacier travel and mountaineering when you only would need it for a rescue scenario. You'll be wearing it almost the whole time so you want it to be lightweight, low profile… Full review

Storm

rated 5 of 5 stars First of all, I wanna know how y'all got four AAA batteries in it when only holds three?!?! Primarily, I use this bad chicken for hunting. If need be, cleaning a deer in the field is easy. At its brightest, we have blazed the trail after dark, and I'm leading the pack with this light. Then as my #2 task, Search and Rescue. Keep batteries on hand and this lamp will not let you down. Well priced, easy to operate and dependable. Full review

Stance Belay Parka

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This belay parka is very warm, fit is a little snug. Quality of the stitching is good and the feel is quite good. The hood is large and very well insulated. It is as described a good belay parka. I am 6'2" 180 lbs and I ordered the XL. This size works very well over my soft shell jacket. A large would have been snug in the shoulders. Zipper is thick and does not snag while zipping even with heavy gloves on. It is a little on the heavy side, but that is the trade off for synthetic parkas. Very warm… Full review

Dawn Patrol Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, bomb proof, very comfortable. Good pockets with good placement and zippers. Clever inside pocket for iPhone or small water bladder. Hood closes nicely over hat and helmet. Design makes for comfort in wet and cold exposures. It's a bit pricy, but well worth it as it's very functional and comfortable with several inner layers. Easy to use with ropes and ice axes as the fit is very comfortable. Full review

Element 45

rated 4 of 5 stars Straps and back panel fit well. I'm 5'9" and approx 145 lbs with what I would think would be an average-length torso, though there is a 47L available as a long-torso option. I can and have worn this bag fully loaded on long days without significant discomfort due to ride or heat buildup. Trailspace lists this as an overnight bag, but I've been using it for multi-day excursions into the backcountry, having traded down from general use of a 60L pack that I tended to overfill. For the visually minded,… Full review
