Sterling Chain Reactor - Matt

The Sterling Chain Reactor is the best thing if you want an adjustable personal anchor that is light. Every loop is rated for use as a PAS unlike a daisy chain which no one should be using as an anchor. You can't really stuff up a Chain Reactor

La Sportiva Akasha Shoes - Dip

La Sportiva Akasha trail running shoes feel great straight out of the box! The flex and structure built in is great. I found the sole to be more durable than most trail running shoes so it's great just as a general walking shoe as well - day hikes, walking into crags etc.

There's nothing worse than having nothing to put your back against after a long day hiking. It also doubles as a durable mat cover making it really versatile. Keep the mat inside when you pack it up makes for a easy set-up. Totally worth the little extra weight.

These are the perfect combination of the Sportiva Solution and the Python. With a slightly squarer toebox and snugger heel they offer a little more sensitivity than the Solution but still give enough support for plenty of power.

With a little understanding this is truely one of the most versatile and useful belay devices. It bridges the gap between tubulers and auto devices like GriGri's. It is light enough for alpine use and the "assisted breaking" is amazing.

Mont Moondance II - Benjammin

My absolute pick! Light, easy to set up, and I've had it seven years and is going strong! As-far-as lightweight tents go this thing still delivers good durability. It's also quick to set up / pack down and double doors is always a good option for general hiking tents.

My absolute "go to" shoe for both indoor comps and outdoor projects. Because the soft, grippy rubber continues up onto the top of the toe, I find I get more friction when pressing into tiny holds. I've been impressed with the wear too.
