I am not a rock climber, but I wish I was to test out these shorts.

That said, these fit my style. I can't wear those short inseam short-shorts. Hate 'em. I also have a really hard time finding shorts that fit my long torso, smaller waist yet athletic quads. These work. I have to get most of my pants/shorts taken in 2-3" in the waist, but not these.

The sizing is a bit tough. The mediums were way to big in the waist for me. The smalls are a bit more snug in the hips than I would prefer (preferred the loser Medium let fit), but the waist fits, so I went with it. Albeit they are synthetic material, they appears to stretch out a tad after wearing a few times.

I really like the pockets on the back, too; flattering.

I have been serching for THE heart rate monitor of my dreams. This is not it.

1) I am in the processing of returning the watch because it stopped - time stopped, no response to buttons. I purchased it in Dec 2009.

2) HRM - if I am cycling, it works pretty well, but the HR can be very inaccurate while running. I followed the directions on positioning and wetting the receptors, but sometimes I would run for 30min with a heart rate of ~100.

3) Display - not good options for display, particularly when running at night. My previous HRM, a Polar, allowed you to change the display to have your HR or Lap be the largest number on the watch display. T3C does not. Also...when running at night...which is an unfortunate consequence of my latitude and work schedule....is difficult, at best, with the t3c. Can't read the watch at all. Even in low light (if you go to a Spinning class that takes the lights down periodically), it is difficult to read.

(sigh)

If anyone has a reco on THE HRM, I'd love to know! (I have tried Timex, Polar...and now Suunto)

Haven't used these as they were intended (wet, trail conditions), but after wearing them out and about, I can tell they'll be great. You can't beat having Gortex, and I like the quick-laces. Prior to these shoes, I had Vasque trail runners which functioned well on the trail but weren't as "strudy" as these feel, if you plan to use them as light hikers.

My only complaint is that the laces are too long and that the heel is a bit loose...we'll see how that works on the trail.

I chose a 1/2 down from what I wear in Asics running shoes.

Really like these wind pants. Haven't tested them out in poor conditions yet, but I think they'll be great for an all-purpose wind pant. I appreciate the ankle zips AND the pockets - too many women's athletic clothes do not have pockets, like women don't need to carry a key or a GU or a credit card when they are out and about! I also like the fact that the legs are not tapered. Tapered pants really don't suit me...don't cover your ankles, or if you where with hiking boots, you are out of luck. Non-tapered, like these, are more utilitarian for me.

I see that some people thought these were way too short - for me, the length was perfect...covering the ankles but not dragging the ground. I am 5'7", but I usually have to hem my pants 2"+ (prefer a 29-30" inseam vs 32").
