"I'm a very keen climber and mountaineer, and try to climb up to 5 times a week if possible. I'm currently at university studying Mechanical Engineering. I also am very interested in photography, and would love to get a 5* picture on UKC in the future!"

Constructive criticism and praise is welcomed.
The Spantik banner uses a Black Diamond image featuring their tools and I think Scarpa boots, not really ideal for a Petzl/LaSportiva ad.
I think the Spantik one is awful. Comments like 'the toughest places' are thought up by ad agencies that haven't got a clue. People who will be buying Spantiks will think of 'the toughest places as' quite normal!
Also the picture is not really relevant to the product. The Spantik is really a mountaineering boot rather than an icefall boot.
Some people ey!!
Any positive remarks or positive criticism, as opposed to "its awful" ?
Font on the bottom two are poor and look like afterthoughts.
Graphic balance on the Hirundos one is a bit off - it looks cluttered as a result.
Like the Elios one a lot - IMO its the best of the bunch.
PS is it not Miura VS, rather than Muira?
