Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I got these as a pair of extra shoes to take backpacking. These are honestly perfect. They are great for river crossings and kicking back at camp. I've actually hiked a bit in these too, especially when river crossings are common.

They're great because they're lightweight and they dry really quickly. I really like the close-toed design. You get the "open-ness" of a sandal, but the toe protection of a pair of hiking shoes.

I haven't been snowboarding for long, but I feel like these bindings are really good and do their job well. They really tie your feet down to the board. They are comfortable and tighten down well. There's the standard adjustability that you get on most bindings, however, the adjustments for the highbacks are unique and really easy. I like this because I find that sometimes I adjust my lean depending on how I'm feeling each day. Plus, I love the lime color! I was really debating between lime and orange, but went with the lime. NO REGRETS.

Even though I'm pretty new to snowboarding, I wasn't scared of buying these because of the warranty on them as well as Backcountry's satisfaction policy.

I've climbed on mine for almost 2 years now. They have taken a beating, and they performed excellently! They are pretty comfortable and good for narrow feet, like mine. The Rubber is really nice and sticky and the shoe really edges quite well. If you're going to be only bouldering, I wouldn't go for these. I would suggest these to someone getting into top roping and/or lead climbing. Don't buy an expensive pair to start, because you will need a more forgiving shoe (such as these) to learn how to place your feet without slipping, etc. These are great for anyone looking to see if they are interested in climbing.
