This jacket is fairly light-weight and easily a top choice for whatever your endeavors, be it climbing, mtn biking, traveling, etc. The material has a good bit of stretch built into it, making it pretty comfortable. At the same time, the material is also pretty durable and a snag on the rock face or a fall off a bike at speeds leaves the jacket looking like nothing ever happened to it. The jacket has an athletic cut and a size SMALL fits me pretty well, not overly fitted, or baggier than you'd want. For descriptive purposes, I'm 5'4" with a pretty short upper body. Suit jacket size 38S (37.5 chest) with a 31.5 sleeve. The jacket's backlength measures 25.5 inches from the base of the collar to the hem, and sizing is consistent with other smalls in this model. The sleeves run just a little pass my wrists, ensuring that my entire forearm stays covered when reaching for that next handhold. Styling wise, you'd be a walking MH advertisement when wearing this jacket. The stock photo above already shows 4 MH logos, and then there's another nut logo on the back just under the collar, and mine came with a nut logo on the left shoulder as well. A previous reviewer commented on how the zippers tend to stick out, but this can easily be fixed by just tucking them in with a bit of finesse. All in all, a great jacket that can be worn all year depending on your layering needs.

This shoe is nice and stiff, providing excellent edging power, but less so with smearing--at least not till the shoe is broken in. The toe rand makes hooking easy and adds some stability and control for the steeps. I wear a size 8-9 shoe regularly, depending on the brand and type, as well as an older model Evolv Bandit in an 8.5 (with the XT-5 rubber). I got the lace-ups in the same size and it fits comfortably, not too snug. It comes with the newer eco-trax rubber which works just as well, however, there's varying reports about eco-trax soled shoes fitting just a bit looser than XT-5 soled shoes. Can't comment on this. One thing I do notice between the Pontas and Bandit is that the Pontas fits my foot better, no dead space like I got with the Bandits. Look into this shoe if you have a narrower, smaller heel or if your heel angle is not so sharp. One last thing...to all those complaining about the smell due to the synthetic leather: air out your shoes, wipe down the insides with a towel if you must to keep the sweat from lingering, and store with some old bounce dryer sheets or a bag of odor absorbing charcoal (can be bought at Home Depot, or similar stores) in it. Believe me, I've done this for over 3 years without any problems.
