Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Purchased these for running/climbing Oahu's steeper trails and ridgelines. I've put them to the test several times now, and they've been pretty grippy on both rock and mud (poorer traction than my old NF Hedgehogs on hard dirt though). However, the rubber nubs started ripping off the sole after just two trail runs (Three Peaks and Maunawili Falls). That's simply not acceptable.
