    Very body conforming when you need to run. Hangs nicely when you don't. Two large pockets each with a small zip area keeps items pretty organized. Small zip pocket in one side for securing items. Stretch poket on the other for a Sigg sized bottle. A bit heavy, but I really like it.

    This little guy puts out a lot of light. Has two hooks to hang from top of our tent. Alternates between lantern and flashlight mode, or you can have them both on together. Nice and bright in the night. Very lightweight and easy to pack. Would recommend.

    I really like the outside compartment for quick access to shovel, probe, and saw. It is my favorite feature on this pack. It is definitely not "super light" but it looks ruggedly built. It's comfortable out of the box but it's June so we'll have to see how it works in the field.

    Getting back into climbing after 4 years of college and non-climbing activities and decided to purchase this harness to help me get back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, I didn't pay enough attention to the measurements for sizing. My wide hips hindered me slipping the harness over like usual, so I had to unstrap the harness and then tighten it around my waist, which left plenty of room. Not the worst thing in the world, but less than convenient.

    The leg straps aren't adjustable, and as a person who has played many a year of rugby, my thighs need a little extra room to breathe. I wore it about twice before I broke down and purchased a different harness (after paying close attention to the measurements!). Maybe a good starter harness- and it is SUPER light (I did appreciate that) but just not the greatest thing for more advanced climbers -- or women with wide hips.

    Already love the large and medium models of this design (Apollo, Navigator[?]), and wanted this one for its lighter weight and the flashlight feature. It feels secure in my palm as a flashlight, winding my way from the cabin at Cape Blanco State Park through the forest to the restroom in the dark of night. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Black Diamond product design people! I'm not a climber, just an ordinary trail hiker/tourista, but am out in the wilds of Oregon about 1-2 times a month. (No trail runner, either.) Highly recommend.

    A nice time proven shape and gate action. All that at a great STP price. I wish it were a rated a bit stronger, but it should do just fine.

    Love these poles. I had been using a similar Black Diamond that was a little short for me. These poles are high quality , lightweight and offered for a super price. Like that the wrist strap has more room then some. Easy to pull tight but can loosen nicely for winter and heavier glove. I like the Z-Pole construction for easy folding and attaching to my pack. A+

    I've been using z-poles for the last few years and have zero complaints. The ease of use and light weight makes them one of my favorite pieces of gear. No more twist locks or measuring up the lengths. Just drop, pull and click into place. I choke up while climbing steeps, and Palm the top on descents. No need to adjust constantly. At just over 6oz each, they feel weightless. Compared to lifting a 12oz pole a few thousand times a day, these save a lot of energy.

    These get stiff and don't open and close well in less than a year. It is hard to get the snow baskets on all the way. Make sure you don't accidentally buy some for midgets.

    These gloves are outstanding active hand protection. I have worn 300 weight for at least 10 years. I wear one and keep a spare in my pack. Good grip (goat skin palm), not too heavy, and decent feel, along with very good warmth. They hold up well with machine washing too. Have purchased multiple pairs for me and my beautiful wife.

    I have purchased many Black Diamond headlamps over the years, starting with my first LED one, The Moonlight. This one continues to extend capabilities and far surpasses the previous version of Icon. Much improved battery compartment and lamp head. You won't be disappointed. Also, their support is outstanding.

    This lantern is tiny, so tiny bit may go on my next backpacking trip. It gives off lots of light for being small. The only drawback is 4 AAA batteries power it.

    I have been using these on my daily early AM cycling commute. They keep my hands warm and are very comfortable. There is minimal padding in the palm but I would rather have the warmth than padding. They are holding up well. I like that they come up over my wrists. Wonderful gloves at a fair price.

    I bought two of thee for my daughters to use while camping. They are easy to operate and furnish enough light to do most things by. It is a "cool" LED temperature wise. The versatility of using the lantern or beam (or both) is nice. I cannot comment on durability, but they appear well made and can take a few drops I am sure. the globe, which appears polycarbonate, slides over the unit reducing size and adding to the durability. at a discount these are great lights for casual use. ..Spend more is your life depends on it.

    I bought the women's version on sale it is an awesome pack! Breathable for hiking in, good size to fit gear and rope on top panel with extra side and front pockets. You just have to be mindful of the waist strap as it can detach if you spin it around too many times (it is a screw style so that it moves with your body as you walk) I only had it come off once and then I screwed it back on and its never come off since! the side pockets could be less "slippery" I always carabiner my gear in to the strap if I do put any in there. Top pouch is nice and roomy. I use it for school these days as well and I can fit plenty of heavy health care books inside this pack and feel like the weight is evenly distributed. The only wear and tear I've seen after a year is the "lining" film on the inside top half of the pack is peeling but this doesn't have any structural impact that I've witnessed so its strictly cosmetic for now.

    All around an excellent pack especially if found on sale!

    Unfortunately the straps were very stiff and uncomfortable. The side pouch is not large enough to accommodate a water bottle (I have yet to graduate to a bladder). Otherwise, I liked the style, but I sent it back for the aforementioned issues.

    I got this for my four year old grandson, so I didn't want to spend too much money. Great for the price. You need a screwdriver (included) to replace the batteries (takes two AA batteries). The plastic is a little flimsy.
