Petzl Boreo Helmet

Sam Shaheen reviews the Petzl Boreo helmet for Blister

Climbing helmet standards have typically been focused on protecting against impacts from above (e.g. rockfall). But Petzl’s new Boreo helmet is also tested against the front, side, and rear impacts that are common in actual falls. The idea certainly makes sense, but how well is that idea executed here? Check out our review.

Evolv Agro

Dave Alie reviews the Evolv Agro for Blister

While many high-performance bouldering and sport-climbing climbing shoes have been moving in the “soft and sensitive” direction, the Evolv Agro takes a different approach. Check out our review, with comparisons to the La Sportiva Solution, Five Ten Hiangle, and Evolv Shaman.

Five Ten Hiangle

Five Ten says that the Hiangle is “relaxed enough for all-day climbing” and “aggressive enough to tackle steep, overhanging routes.” But how comfortable and how aggressive is it really? Check out our full review with tons of comparisons to other shoes.

La Sportiva Kataki

Matt Zia reviews the La Sportiva Kataki for Blister

The La Sportiva Kataki looks a lot like one of our favorite climbing shoes, the Sportiva Katana Lace. So how similar or different are the two shoes, and where does the Kataki really excel? Check out our review.

La Sportiva Genius

Dave Alie reviews the La Sportiva Genius for Blister

The La Sportiva Genius is one of the most aggressive climbing shoes on the market, but it lacks one noteworthy thing: an edge. So how does it compare to other aggressive shoes like the La Sportiva Solution & Futura, Evolv Shaman, and Five Ten Hiangle? Check out our review.

Scarpa Furia S

Ben Firth reviews the Scarpa Furia S for Blister

The new Scarpa Furia S is one of the softest climbing shoes on the market, and is designed to offer ultimate precision and grip for overhung terrain. So does it? And how does it compare to shoes like the Scarpa Drago, Five Ten Team VXI, and La Sportiva Futura? Check out our full review.

Tenaya Mundaka

Ben Firth reviews the Tenaya Mundaka for Blister

The Tenaya Mundaka offers an excellent blend of performance and comfort, and is a great option for intermediate to advanced climbers looking for precision — and a wider fit — than most other high-performance shoes.
