Hi my name is barry I'm the general. Manager of unique outfitters and I'm here today at stone summit climbing and fitness center to talk to you a little bit about the red chilly spirit vcr let's get into the details so some of. The features of the red chilly spirit are it's synthetic upper which is going to limit the stretch on the shoe over the lifetime of the shoe it has three velcro closures which give you a lot. More variability and how tight you can get the chute in the back here there's a little bit of a bulbous heel here and there's a piece of eba foam up under. There that acts of the shock absorber if you come down on to a hard surface. The proprietary rubber on the bottom is a sticky rubber compound developed by red chilly it retains an edge really well and it's quite sticky and last but. Not least you'll notice that we have two pull tabs in the rear so you can really crank the shoe on with these so in my. Experience with this shoe some of the things that have you noticed about it that are really cool are one that it has on the inside of the. Toe box a microfiber lining which is nice and comfortable not a lot of other companies do that your knuckles kind of hit it and you go oh that's nice it's a. Very neutral shoe so it's relatively flat across the bottom it's great for. All-day comfort it doesn't have a really high profile toe box which allows your. Totally a little flatter in it making it great for beginners or people seeking that nice all-day multi-pitch chute one. Think i wouldn't recommend it for is extremely steep or overhanging climbing. Because it doesn't have that down turn to really hook and pull when you need it to but beyond that it really works as an. All-around shoe. Thanks for joining us today my name is barry and this has been the red chilly spirit climbing shoe presented by unique outfitters.

The slight downturn feels excellent on technical vertical routes as well as overhung boulder problems.
Today we're going to check out the scarf of a pervy this shoe really bridges the. Gap between beginner and expert shoes and has a great balance of precise fit. Good comfort and all-round performance. The shape features a slightly downturn. Toe and fairly straight but wide forefoot the heel is snug enough for heel hooking and the velcro closure makes them quick and easy to take off between pitches or bolder problems if you're fairly new to. Climbing and you're looking for a one shoe quiver that does bouldering trad and sport climbing equally well this is. Definitely a good contender. You. You.

Hi i'm colin power the climbing category director black diamond and this is our new vision harness this is the lightest. Weight full functioning harness on the market 224 grams designed really for alpine climbing for gear loops low-profile gear loops for. Ice buffer slots a super thin. Low-profile belay loop fixed legs it's super packable and really lightweight. Like i said 224 grams so having a. Lightweight harness is one thing but having it really packable is another so it takes up less space in your pack not exactly on the comfortable side of the. Scale though a lot of the guys have been wearing this thing sport climbing and it's like totally fine really really minimalistic 149 95 available in january. Of 2018. Pretty sick it's pretty sick what we did. With this was we took our kinetic core construction from our zeno center chaos. And our ethos this is really the guts of that we stripped all the shell and everything off and left the the bare bones basically the skeleton so this is. Vector and fiber super strong doesn't absorb water really packable really lightweight made the width balance. Between comfort and pack ability way more comfortable than you would think but it's alpine rig it's designed for alpine climbing no adjustment on the leg loops you know the only adjustment is the waist belt to get it on and off and this belay loop is super cool it's. Basically one strand of super high-tech. Fiber that's wrapped around like a doughnut and then wrapped in this casing. So it's not like that most belay loops are a piece of webbing that's folded into looping and bar tack so that's how we could get this to be so strong and so small and it's way way way over built we. Could even make it smaller and it would still meet all the requirements but it would get to the point you'd be freaked out we actually played with the diameter. Of this tubing a lot because our other. Have thicker but then it's it's not as. Packable we found this to be a good balance between functionality and pack ability if you put nothing on it then it's really hard especially with gloves and jackets and stuff in packs some ski mountaineer is gonna wear this you go to the tetons you want a real harness that's really light in packs well 224 grams that's insane it's only 5 grams i. Think heavier than the kawar which i would classify as not a full functioning harness you know yes you can wrap it and. Stuff like that but you know it's got the diaper legs and no gear loop you know that kind of thing so this is like got everything you need on it called the. Vision because we thought that these climbers that are looking at these crazy north faces in the mountains like they have the vision to link up these ice smears and stuff this is the kind of harness that they want to wear sadly we. Made it for kyle dempster that's who we made it for and he had our first prototype when we lost him last fall you. Know we made it for those guys for kyle haydon kennedy urban novak you know. Marko appraisal like these kind of dudes you know that are really pushing it but of course anyone can use it for anything they want but we really wanted to make it for those kind of guys that are pushing the limits in the mountains.

Thule's always been the go-to name for roof racks, hitch racks, and general cargo carrying, but it's been getting into the technical pack game, and the early results haven't been too shabby. The new Stir Women's Hiking Pack, for example, has an innovative top-access design that combines a cinch-down opening, top storm flap, and internal zip to keep all your gear locked down and organized. As impressively, the StormGuard design features a partial hideaway rain cover that teams up with the Stir's rugged lined bottom to create a waterproof package that's still usable when it's covered up.
The Stir is both customizable and well designed due to a sliding back panel to fit different torso sizes and a removable hip belt and sternum strap to give it a more streamlined look for around-town use. A side zipper provides easy access to buried layers, and pockets at the shoulder strap, front, side, and top supply convenient spots to stash your phone, water, rain shell, and snacks. There's even a dual ice axe/trekking pole carrying system, so you can be prepared if things start to get technical.
