Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

These pants have a nice slim cut, which looks great, but limits mobility. They aren't cut like work pants, and trying to do anything that involves moving your legs seems to be a problem for me. Maybe I just need to size up? They button just fine, but the lack of a gusseted crotch combined with the slim cut isn't doing me any favors. It's a shame too, because as soon as I first tried them on, the wife loved how they looked. They're also comfortable and feel durable and well made. Just a weird cut for me.

These are a great pair of shoes for beginners. My street shoe is about a 11-11.5, I ordered size 10's knowing that they would stretch, definitely a chore to get on the first time and not very comfortable my first two times climbing, but they loosened up extremely quickly, and now I don't even notice them even after wearing and climbing in them for hours. A few notes, the toe is rounded, and fitting it into a little pocket will just not work, also, the heel could be a lot better for heel hooking. But the laces all the way down allow for a very tight but not uncomfortable fit, the rubber will outlast your awful footwork, and the comfort of these shoes will really let you focus more on your climbing, and enjoying the climbing, instead of you constantly thinking about how bad your toes hurt. Definitely a recommend for beginner climbers. I gym climb about 3-4 times a week, and 8 months after purchasing these I'm still loving them

The bag holds your chalk just fine for when you're climbing, which is the whole reason I bought it. But it is not rigid at all, so it can flop around a bit sometimes. Also, mine had a draw-string instead of a clip belt as its "belt", which only works if you happen to be skinny (I am skinny, my overweight climbing buddy can't use it though). It can move freely around the belt though, which is nice. It works if all you want is something cheap to hold your chalk, but if I could go back in time I would purchase something more rigid with a better belt included.
