Every year Rock and Ice gear testers put products through the wringer, subjecting them to a minimum of 50 days or 50 pitches of use before they are reviewed. Of all the shoes, boots, packs, ropes, cams and other gear we test, a few rise above by being either innovative, exceptional values or perform extraordinarily well. Here, we present those products, the recipients of the 2018 Best in Gear award.
