Never Buy Aku Boots

Has anyone experienced problems with these Boots? I have bought an AKU full shank Mustang Boot October 2014. I used it three times and one of the boots started to bend... Normally this should not have happened. I have contacted AKU Italy and after all corresponding emails, I was left with a faulty boot. Their dealer refuses to exchange or inspect even. I have never thought I would experience this negative experience from a reputable ...

Gear consultation - Aconcagua and beyond

I'm looking forward to next year since I plan to try Aconcagua and hopefully return to Nepal for Baruntse.
Since I'm not a very experienced climber at all (been to 6k at most in Nepal with newbie gear), I do want so advice from you guys.

I did some gear restock this year. I have some questions about purchasing more/better gear and about my current stuff:
- I have the summit series Northface Himalayan ...

Boots for a Yeti Boots for a Yeti

I am not small, 6'6 with a size 16US boot or an EU51. After an ugly divorce and career change I am absolutely determined to realize my dreams and climb Denali in 2018 and
Rainier next July for practice, training etc...

So I have posed this question over at Cascade climbers, emailed Lowa and Koflach, spent hours and hours searching every manufacturers website I can think of and
no one makes a mountaineering boot in ...

-20c sleeping bags: ALPS Mountaineering

I'm looking for a cold weather sleeping bag (rated -20c to -40c). I am seeing a bunch of really cheap bags from ALPS Mountaineering. Priced between $50-150. I am actually seeing good reviews although they seem to be all synthetic and possibly heavier than other brands. Can anyone vouch for these bags or am I better off to pay more for something from TNF or Marmot?

Cumulus Panyam 600 Sleeping Bag Review

The whole past year, I was looking for a warm high quality down sleeping bag for 4-season mountaineering, hiking, backpacking, camping andother outdoor activities.

I have compared several of their models ...

Another "which pack" question-Winter Mountaineering

I'm new to winter mountaineering. I have summer packs that I like, but, they are too small for my winter gear(48l). I'm looking at something in the 60-70 liter range that can comfortably carry 50 lbs. I'll be using this for winter only and plan to do 2-3 day trips. On my radar is the Cilogear 70l, Black Diamond Mission 75, Lowe Alpine Metanoia 65, Mountain Hardwear S-Col 70. Any other suggestions are welcome. Who ...
