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

I have put about 85 miles on these shoes mostly in Vermont and a bit in New Hampshire and Connecticut. They have performed really well for me. The sole has never slipped on me, even when on wet rock. The midsole is a great balance between flexibility and responsiveness which allows me to take technical trails really well while also giving good ground feel so I know how much of my foot is on that rock. I have never taken them through a creek crossing but on more than one occasion I've found myself in watery mud up to my ankles for long enough that my socks get soaked. These things dry our really quickly and I have never gotten that "squishy" sensation. The toe bumper offers really good protection. More than a few times I've gotten ahead of myself on a downhill and slammed my toe directly into a root or rock at a full clip and I've never jammed my toes at all. I caught a really point rock right through the midsole once and the pain was bad enough that I thought I had done some real damage to my foot, but it turned out to be fine and I've never came across the same issue again. I have very narrow and low volume feet and these fit really well when I crank down on the laces (especially for the downhills). Definitely recommend them. The other reviews say it runs small. I wear an 8 in everything I wear except for climbing shoes, and these fit fine.

I don't quite get what is meant by "integrated skewer mounts". I can't tell where they are on the basket. It seems to mean there are no cross bars needed for bikes. If not, where exactly would you mount a bike? Thanks.

I am looking to purchase a heavier winter jacket. Basically, I need a decent belay jacket for belaying (duh) and staying warm before I give a project another go. I'm wondering about the sizing. I am not looking to wear just a t-shirt underneath but I don't want it so large that it loses a lot of the heat retention. I am 5'7 135-140 with average arm length for my height.

5'7 135-140. Pretty skinny, slightly athletic. I am looking to purchase a new shell for the winter namely because my old paclite is trim and takes all of the loft out of my down jacket, especially the arms and is tight in the pits. I typically go for a small, should I size up to a medium?
