The Big Gear Show 22 – Misty Mountain

Friday, August 5th, 2022

Misty Mountain has been retooling their line of climbing harnesses with the Intrepid being one of them.

I’m just going to share their description:

“Quick adjust buckles make sizing leg loops easy, and the contoured padded waist belt and tapered leg loops give good comfort for single pitch rock and ice. Double layer gear loops that extend for easy clips, ergo haul loop and burly nylon shell.”

Carradice is a British bicycle bag maker and who could pass up a bag made from DPM?

Take for example this seat pack. Its made from 1000D Cordura and features a removable inner loner to keep your gear dry.

There’s also a saddlebag style if you want to carry your load sideways.

It’s fitted with a Fidlock buckle, integrated webbing leash loop and room for these items.

The Big Gear Show 22 – Tasty Bite

If you’re looking for something to augment your field meals, check out Tasty Bite.

They offer a whole menu of very appetizing entrees and sides. All you have to do is heat them in the pouch. Since they’re already cooked, you can also eat them cold but they aren’t quite as tasty.

I sampled the basmati rice, madras lentils, and Coconut Chickpeas in Tumeric Curry. I definitely recommend all of it. In fact, I plan on adding them to my lunch options at home in the future.
