I loved these shoes as soon as i opened them out of the box. They are SO comfortable, VERY light, UNBELIEVABLY grippy and run so nicely. I mean it, when i took these on a trail run they gripped the messy trail so well, my foot barely moved. They didn't chafe my foot and they are easily more comfortable than any slipper I've ever worn. These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn, in fact. The pair weighs NOTHING. They also cushion fantastically. The MorphoDynamic sole is to blame for this, it really is a home run on Sportiva's part. "But wait." You might say,"You only gave it a three out of five?" Thats right, I did give it a three. These are the least durable shoes I have ever worn, I might as well be wearing a pair of Tom's. The grippy sole on these things really showed wear after the first trail run, you could see that rubber had worn away. The fabric on the outside of the shoe is one piece, very light and comfortable, but a thorn can rip it! They just cannot stand up. They would be perfect for racing, and only racing, no training. I really liked these shoes but if they can't stand up to me, thats bad. I am not a sloppy runner nor do I ever drag my feet, I walk like a ballerina for god's sake. Yet they still fell apart. I am sorry la sportiva, i wanted to love these but I couldn't.

King pin or zion? I can't decide and I really don't care about the price. I would ice climb, hike, camp, EVERYTHING etc..The only thing i wouldn't do with this jacket is take it in the rain, just crazy hard blowing snow. I kinda want the jacket to be comfortable, not like my gore tex pro shell jacket. I really want it to be almost cozy. I want the jacket to be warm but not blazing hot. Anyone!!! please?!?

So i would really like to buy this jacket, I have wanted one for 4 years. But i see that they have changed the material, i am very weary of this. Could someone try to explain to me why this new material is better. I do own a venta ar and i like it but it is a little stuffy for me, but I would like somewhat similar protection. i don't care TOO much about windproofness , but there needs to be some. I definitely need a decent amount of water resistancy and for it to be durable. Can anybody help me?

i would agree with jeff, all would work. I would absolutely recommend you get the cram o matic or the new matic. They are much more solid binding systems

its a device that what i say, its light, it has a good range of ropes. I don't see what the problems are, i have had it for a year, i love it. the wire got stuck once in the device, once. i have used this device a lot, I have put serious miles on this thing and i have seen no problem. i like it a lot for its lightness and how the wire stays out of the way. I have done big rappels with this and i have done plenty of gym climbing with it. no complaints.
