Tuesday April 12th I received new team outfits during our training from Berghaus.

As clothing sponsor they gave me competition shirts, fleece hoodies, a softshell, bidon and a bag.

Besides the colour black, the shirts also contain white and orange. The back of the shirt is really thin, you can see through it.

The fleece hoodies will keep me warm when ever I’m not climbing.

Personally, I’d recommend the softshell most. It’s a windstopper, suits my body well and the fabric is really soft.

Fortunately my closet has enough competition clothing to survive come season. Thank you Berghaus!

Moon 2011 collection has arrived!

Yeah, a box full of organic clothes. I couldn’t wait to open up the box. Everything is wrapped in plastic, it smells great!

You just need to try it yourself to know what it feels like. The prints are awesome, the trousers feels good and I’m up to date with the latest collection. Beware, when I’m climbing around I’ll probably be wearing new Moon clothes.

Jort Veen, thank you for delivering this box to me. Ben Moon, thanks for the nice collection. I can’t wait to start climbing in these clothes!

Two days ago a mail man from DHL knocked on my door to deliver a parcel from Boreal Spain.

I’m very happy to receive this parcel. The package was wrapped in Boreal tape. Carefully I cut the box open to check the content. I was expecting climbing shoes but there was more. I also received new trail running shoes!

Futura Verde & Krypto

I’ll give you a short review about these shoes. As you can see, both shoes are green. Lets get a closer look at the Futura Verde trail running shoes.

Futura Verde

The shoe is soft and perfect for trail running, nordic walking, orienteering and fast movers. My feet feels very comfortable when I fit the shoes. It is light, 770 gram per pair, 100% waterproof and made from high-tech material. I like it.

Lets talk about the climbing shoes. Below you’ll see a nice close up of the Boreal Krypto.

Krypto

The Krypto is a new model in the collection of Boreal shoes. I think it’s similar to the Crux, however the sole is softer. The rubber feels sticky and therefore I think the shoe is perfect for overhanging routes. The shoe weighs 485 gram per pair. The double velcro closure is copied from the other models. The heel doesn’t have the edges like the Falcon. I haven’t tested these climbing shoes yet, but I’m sure these shoes are pretty comfortable due to the velcro closure.

Anyway, so far my shoe review. I hope you like it. Thank you Boreal for supporting me!

I like to read reviews about new climbing shoes. Moreover, it gets interesting if you can find more information about your own climbing shoes / approach shoes.

Climbing.com put reviews from 19 (!!) models from 11 companies online. Awesome, now you’re able to compare them among each other. To be honest, you need to fit many different models before you can make a choice. Each foot seems to be unique, right?

This list contains 2 pairs of shoes which I use as well. Are your shoes listed? Check here.

Yesss!! Besides my current sponsors there was still room for climbing products.

As of now, I’ll represent Climbing Technology. They sent me lots of new products, such as quickdraws, krabs, hms, click up, harnesses and again too numerous to mention! Everything was sealed in plastic, included a user instruction or boxed seperate, those Italians are crazy. I am so psyched, I feel like climbing outdoors right now.

Thank you Climbing Technology.

I found a movie about this wicked gadget. Check out this new belay device, The Click up:
