Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size


Well, they only squeak on clean floors. Fits comfortable, true to size, in the sense they are comparable to other manufacture's sizes. Used on the trail, around the house, and on city streets. I was a bit disappointed when the shoe slipped, and I was expecting more "bite" on a rock. If you concentrate on foot placement, no problem. But if you're casually about foot placement on the rock, they will slip. A lot more than expected for
the sticky soles they advertised. My biggest complaint is they lasted only 3 months before the rand started to come apart. Shoes should last much longer and not require the customer to glue the shoe. I believe, if you flex the shoe a lot, like on approaches, the rand will delaminate. Even not wearing the shoe you see the delamination in process. Majorly disappointed.
5.10 should add a tube of glue to each box.

Great Locking biner to use on an anchoring system. The movement of opening is ergonomical sound. Simple twist, don't have to fight it, and fits well in the hand. You need to physically try this biner to love it's functioning.

Had to get the extra large for a comfortable fit.
Nice material, stretches well. Warmth is there. Not
to thrilled about the thumb-forefinger guard? padding? patch. It's like they added it on as an after
thought. There's plenty of edge after the sewing seam that catches on everything. Not happy about it.

Nice light shoe.Great for approach,scrambling,and
some long easy climbs. Not design to take abuse, like long crack climbs. Heel has an air pocket, which sometimes bugs me, but that might be because they designed the heel to fold in and use as a slipper.Love the shoe, pretty comfortable.

Great Light! Super bright, love the dimming feature for going from pitch black trail hiking to
BS sessions in camp late at night.
My primary use is for climb approaches in the dark or to supplement my MTB light. Can't wait to test in the cold weather skiing.
