Took this with me on a June trip to the Cascades, 12 days of hard use, with it on most of the time (including in the sleeping bag). It did the job of keeping me warm, and weighs practically nothing. I love that its thinner than your typical down jacket, so putting a rain/wind shell over this doesn't require upsizing your other gear. Starting to show some wear already on the cuff, but I totally expect that given the use.

I like this shoe a lot. My last shoes were 5.10 galileos, which were also great shoes. I bought the pontas b/c I wanted a more aggressive (and more versatile) shoe, not unlike the Miuras. The Pontas are supposed to be Evolv's version of the miuras, with one advantage that the pontas are synthetic. Well, the miuras are way more aggressive that the pontas: they turn both in and out substantially more. I did get the lace-ups, and it may be that the velcro pontas are more aggressive than the lace-ups.
All that being said, I'm enjoying the shoes. They edge nicely (the toe box could be narrower), are firm enough to spread the pressure of small holds across the foot, and the synthetic upper is surprisingly soft/supple (almost comfortable).
The yellow is also a cool color.
