We’re not called WeighMyRack for nothing! Here, you can add quantities to the gear you own and we’ll automatically add up the total weight.
We also take this calculation a little further: you can see exactly what percentage of your rack your helmet takes up (or any other piece of gear for that matter).
This isn’t just your standard wishlist. Yes, we’ll save this list for you when you get back, BUT you can also sign up for email updates. This means you don’t have to keep refreshing the page waiting for your wanted gear to go on sale. Instead, you can get a custom sales alert. You can literally be climbing, while we’re working to find the sales.
And, we’ll only send you an email if, you actually signed up to get sale emails from us, and the gear you want is over 10% off.
There are over 500 different climbing shoes out there. That many options means that you can basically get a custom shoe. You can take your performance to the next level when you’re confident in the features you’ll need to get you there.
This guide goes over every shoe feature; it took us 2 weeks to write and it’s over 6200 words. We cover basics to the nitty gritty. Options like the type of closure, shoe material and last shape. We talk about gender and shoe volume and how they relate. We also give tips on how to nail the best fit. And, we even dive into the details of asymmetry and downturn--to help you find the perfect shoe.

Choosing the Best Carabiner by Shape
