Baltoro Glove

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great dexterity for ice clmbing, but not waterproof enought for wet eastern conditions. Had those on sale a few years back. They are great for my ice climbing session, great dexterity but I wish they had more weaterproof and waterproof. Has for many gloves dexterity means less warmth on fingers ends. Great second pair for long days ice climbing. Full review

Phantom Grip Glove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars This glove does not keep your hands warm in mild conditions. The grip feature is poor. I wrote to the company and they do not stand by their product. Save your money, $5 store gloves worked just as well. I tried to give these gloves a chance for over a month. I have had back country experience including mountaineering, hiking, and skiing in Alaska. I do not wear gloves in temperatures at 50°F and sometimes not in the 40s either. This is Alaska; it is a hot day when it hits 70°F. I was looking… Full review

Snowpack Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars This is my 1st Rab product and as there was no other review on T-Space of this item I will post my two cents worth. I got this aimed at ski and snowboard use (after all it's called a Snowpack!), but was disappointed in the lack of ski features, no inner mesh dump pockets, not outside mp-3 pocket, no snow skirt, and I could not zip up the collar when wearing a ski helmet (large or XL helmet.) I am 5-10, 175 lbs. I tried the medium size first. It was a little tight under the arms, but overall decent… Full review

Siltarp 2

rated 4 of 5 stars This tarp has been a great introduction into tarp camping for me. It is much lighter than a conventional tent, as well as being much roomier. There are some tradeoff's though. I have been doing more and more backpacking over the last few seasons. In doing so, I realized that a lot of my kit needed updating. I have a generous family, so I received a new bag and pad for my birthday and didn't have to dish out for a new sleep system. Next on the list was a new shelter... I had been looking into ultra… Full review

Neutrino 400

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag. Stay warm and dry even when fog dampens the exterior. Used, without a tent in the Grand Canyon in winter and Angel Island in the fog. Bought this for backpacking in colder weather. As I get older need lighter equipment and more warmth. This bag is light. Packs small. It is warm. It is well proportioned for a "not too slim" women's body. It kept me warm, and dry, even when soaked with moisture in heavy dew/fog. Love it. Full review
