Completely waterproof, completely windproof, completely resistant to everything you can imagine !! It's the kind of product you need to think about before bying it because of the price... But you'll never regret !! I hightly recommend this product.
A Bomb Shell. The Moki is the perfect expedition tent, very comfortable for 2 person even though is designed for 3. If you are looking for a 4 season shelter probably this is a good option. This tent is very easy to set up and have interesting features, like the small windows on the sides. You have to keep in mid this tent is about 3.8kg. After all this tent is perfect for cold extreme weather.
I have many mountaineering backpacks but this one is my favorite. The black diamond speed 55 is just incredible, very lightweight and a very simple design. The reactive suspension is awesome and very comfortable. Most of the time I use this pack for 2 or 3 days trip to carry my equipment (I carry my tent, sleeping bag, technical tools, and so on)
The Revelation is my favorite touring pack ever. In addition to having a built-in Avalung and having plenty of room, the pack is compatible with water bladders and has straps for A-frame ski carry, a helmet carry system (not implemented in the photo), a dual ice-axe carry system, and a quick-access pocket designed to keep avy tools organized and within quick reach. The Revelation utilizes Black Diamond's ergoActiv/ SwingArm suspension system which keeps the shoulder straps appropriately situated during dynamic movement, and is one of my favorite suspension systems I've ever encountered (having used Osprey, Lowe, Dakine, and Kelty packs in the field). While the pack itself is quite durable, the zipper pulls are not, but can easily be replaced with paracord or the like. Light enough for ski touring and big enough to accommodate bulky mountaineering equipment, this pack holds enough for a long day project, but isn't big enough to haul overnight gear.
Fast and light jacket just 325 grams! A minimal design of 3 layers of Goretex fabric maximize breathability on alpine routs. This jacket is great due to you can compress it and store in a very small bag. <br />
Definitely my favorite jacket so far.
Definitely my tent to go for mountaineering. Very lightweight as well as compact; this tent is very stronger and well designed for very bad conditions. I tried a lot of tents but this one is definitely my favorite. The ventilation system is so amazing.
I got my Petzl Vasaks for ski mountaineering. They work very well in the variable snow conditions in the Wasatch, and are perfect for hiking up steep, hard snow. I opted for the Spirlock model (wiregate back) because I only use them with my AT or tele boots, and like the more flexible front to accommodate different ski boot toes and the simple back to clamp down on the defined heels of these boots. The model is easy to preset to the boot size, and I don't have to do much fumbling around to adjust them once I need them. I used to just use crampons for more serious mountaineering projects (like skiing hike-only chutes--e.g. Suicide, pictured) but these days, I'll throw them in my touring pack along with the skins and ski crampons just in case conditions would favor their use, since they don't weigh much and aren't a hassle to use.
My touring ski of choice for the last two seasons, falls between a classic touring and a freeride ski, with early rise rocker and dual-radius sideuit. Light versatile ski that works on a wide range of terrain and snow types.
The perfect tool for all around and hard technical mountaineering ! Really light weight, great swing, "hand support" sliding on the shaft is perfect to deal with both ice climbing and walking on a sharp ridge. The equivalent of the more famous Petzl Quark, wich is a great tool too !
By far the best hardshell I've ever owned. This jacket has almost 300 days on it, has traversed the Juneau Icefield twice, and has been to 23,000 feet on Aconcagua. It keeps the wind, snow, and rain out, while keeping my heat in. It still keeps me as dry as the day i got it, and who can argue with the color? Get it, you will fall in love.
