4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Im just getting into sport climbing, and snagged this harness when it was on sale. Im a 34" waist with skiers thighs and the large fits well. The inner thigh could use more padding IMO, however, thats personal taste. Adequate gear loops for several QDs and ATC. Overall Im happy with the product and looking forward to more climbs in it.

Tried these on in a shop here in CO. Tried on a 45 (on sale, and no 44.5). They fit slightly roomy, and am nervous they will pack out and become a sloppy fit. I wear the Boulder X in a 44.5 for summer and fall 14er hikes, and they fit very well with a medium weight Smartwool hiking sock. Im looking to pick these up for snow routes. Should I be concerned with the extra room, or be looking for that as far as layering? This will be my first mountaineering boot, so any help will be awesome.

As far as PERFORMANCE goes, both the Vice and NTN system are very active bindings, with the intent of transmitting as much energy from the boot to the ski, which is very necessary when driving big skis in deep snow and simply charging around the mountain. However, the NTN system is said to have a different feel to it than traditional cable style tele setups. As with any piece of equipment, demo first!
