Amazing pack 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: fosterm6, 2009-09-19


I bought this pack at an REI garage sale for $70. It's the most comfortable pack that i've ever worn, plenty of room for everything needed and the tent straps are the bottom are perfect for carrying a tent backpacking or a climbing rope to the crags. Plenty of places to strap on extra gear, making enough room for an overnighter, or your trek down the Pacific Crest Trail.

Love these shoes 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: fosterm6, 2009-09-19


I bought these shoes at the beginning of the summer and climbed on them heavily all summer, both outdoors and in my home gym. They've performed amazingly on both, they work amazingly on my local crags Smith rocks (Tuff rock). The slipper with velcro works great to get the shoes tight, yet they fight like a glove. Bought half a size to small and the shoes have stretched to fit my feet. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Great shoe, bad rubber 4 out of 5 stars

Great shoe, comfortable and well fitting. Great for gym climbing and lower level face and crack climbing. Rubber on the toe started to wear off after 3 months of heavy use, sent them back to Madrock for a complete resole (free).
