I've gone through 3 pairs of these shoes. I primarily climb single and multi-pitch trad routes on granite and limestone in the alps and in Utah.

It's a great design that offers great control and edging power... when they're new.

The durability is a key issue. For one thing, after two pitches in Indian Creek wide cracks, the metal buckles were worn through from foot jamming. Leaving me with one strap. This happened to two separate pairs after only 1-2 pitches. Obviously the buckle is not in the optimal spot.

I also wore through the toes in about 20 days of climbing. Which is pretty weak if you consider these shoes are are upwards of 150 bucks.

I like the italian quality, and I keep going back because I love the fit (great for longer routes as well as steeper/technical sport routes). But I'm going to have to consider another pair this time because I can't keep shelling out this cash every 3 months.

It's funny, if its it's guaranteed waterproof, why is it soaking wet after a short downpour?

I've had this jacket about 2 months, I had it brought over to France where I live after reading all the reviews hoping all the hype surrounding the event fabric would be true.

Alas, and like always, after the DWR spray wears off after about 6 weeks of light use, the item is completely not-waterproof. It's a shame because I actually liked this jacket: It's light, it fits me well, and it was waterproof (for a month). Now it's nothing more than some flashy outerwear that I really don't want to rely on.
