Corsa Nanotech

rated 5 of 5 stars This is all the ice axe you need for any mountaineering objective that doesn't require a technical ice tool. There is simply no reason to own or consider using a more traditional / heavier ice axe, even for trips that involve mostly glacier walking. This axe is so light you'll never hesitate to bring it with you when other bigger axes might seem like a drag. I've used this ice axe on a few dozen alpine climbing trips over the last two years in various mountain ranges in Washington and British Columbia. Full review

Corsa Nanotech

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome axe. So light, you'll actually bring it with you. Years ago, I bought a 50cm for ski mountaineering and for that purpose it is hard to beat. A year or two later, I bought another so that I now also have a 60 cm, and one of them now seems to go with me on nearly every trip, from winter ski tours to late-summer alpine traverses. Unless I know I will be facing lengthy sections of steep, hard snow or ice, I bring it. Because of the ultralight weight, I almost never leave an axe at the car only… Full review

Photon Wire Straight Gate

rated 4 of 5 stars The Camp Photon wire gate carabiner is the lightest full size carabiner in the world and has an extremely large gate opening for easy clipping. Review The Camp Photon carabiner is amazingly light weighing in at 29 grams. It also has a one of the largest gate openings at 28mm for the straight gate and 29mm for the bent gate. I currently have 12 Photon Wire Bent Gate carabiners on the rope end of my quickdraws and they are noticeably lighter than the hotwires I replaced while still being easy to clip. Full review

ED Micro Jacket Lady Evo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This review is for the ED Micro Jacket Lady Evo. This is for the women's version, not the men's version. The fit is great on this ED Micro Jacket Lady Evo. It is snug so that it's flattering and does not make you look like a round puffball, but flexible enough so it moves with you and does not feel tight. It moves like a fleece but is warm like a puffy jacket. It is not waterproof, but it beads a bit of water off. It is VERY WARM for it’s weight. It fits nicely under a roomy rain shell for great… Full review

X-Dream

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Ice climbing dream. For pure WI these are my favorite ice tool to date. The slim pick usually is a one swing wonder, which makes steep climbs less tiring. With my Nomics I feel like I have to battle-axing in to the ice, but not the X-dream even with the "mixed" pick. The handle has two positions ice and Mixed, I keep mine on the ice setting.  The difference is that the mixed sets the handle angle a bit more aggressive.  My only gripe is the little adjustable plastic grip rest on the upper shaft,… Full review
