Next week we're giving away an American Alpine Club membership and a Mountainsmith Mountainlight Scream 25 backpack to one lucky gear reviewer, thanks to the American Alpine Club.

Review your outdoor gear by Sunday, July 21, and you're entered to win this sweet daypack and a membership to a great outdoor organization ($150 total value).

The American Alpine Club provides knowledge and inspiration, conservation and advocacy, and logistical support for the climbing community. That's a pretty sweet mission, so we decided to do a tongue-and-cheek comparison between the AAC (above right) and another organization that encourages people to push their limits in challenging terrain: the Extreme Ironing Bureau (above left).
