The Black Diamond Momentum’s unique knit material makes it feel more like a sock than a shoe. But don’t let that discourage you about this climbing shoe’s performance. The Momentum excels on plastic and rock at a beginner-level pricepoint. The knit lends itself to flexibility, which helps on steep, overhanging walls, but also lets you grip tight on vertical walls.
It’s hard to beat down when it comes to warmth and packability. The Stio Pinion Down Pullover packs 800-fill, water-resistant down into a puffy.

It won’t interfere with your climbing harness and also doubles as a stuff sack that turns the jacket into a comfortable camp pillow.

The warmth-to-weight ratio on the Ghost Whisperer puffy jacket is insane. This thing weighs about 7.5 ounces yet packs a ton of warmth with its 800-fill goose down. Mountain Hardwear’s down will stay warm when wet, and the cuffs have an elastic binding to seal out cold and moisture.
We love the Ghost Whisperer but admit it’s expensive. Sales like this are prime opportunities to see what all the hype is about.
