New colours different fit
4 5

I absolutely LOVE the shoes and have used them for everything from walking the dog to cross fit to indoor climbing. However I have a pair of these in grey/red in a size 6 and just bought the marine/mulberry in a 6.5 as I wanted a little extra toe room for trail running but they are about 1.5 sizes too big!! I will return 6.5 (which is a massive pain as I am in Australia) and get a size 6 again and just hope that they are closer to the original sizing. So just a warning that if you are addicted to these (like I am) and in love with the new colours (again, like me) just be aware that the sizing appears to be rather different.

Bought this harness primarily for mountaineering but it is just at home on the walls of my local gym. Comfortable and lightweight and the gear loops are easily accessible (when I'm not wearing a pack). It packs down well and doesn't lose it's shape no matter how poorly I stuff it in to my pack.
The fit is good and whilst I would probably be better with an extra-small when I am climbing without layers I am not sure it would get past my thighs! I have about a 27 inch waist and my thighs/hips are about 38 inches so I do have to have the waist fully open and wiggle it past to get it up. Apparently the Petzl Luna is better made for us pear shaped ladies however I have not tried it personally. Either way am very happy with the BD Lotus.

Hi eva3787571,
I just bought a pair (in Perth because when I tried them on, fell in love, and there was NO way they were not leaving the shop with me) I am a size generally always a size 36 (which can be either a 5.5 or 6 Australian) and got the 36 (which is a US 6 and UK 3.5) and they fit perfectly. They have a lovely roomy toe box which is great if you have wider feet. They are a little bit awkward to put on but once they are on they are awesome. I haven't taken them on the trail yet but I think if you are going to do a lot of hills you may want to go up half a size to give your toes just a little bit of extra space on the downhill. The heel cups your foot really well so slippage should not be a problem. I'd say go through your shoes, find your most common euro size and order in that size. I am already contemplating another pair...
