Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bottom line: I'm a bicycle commuter, and I'm sick of carrying around a big clunky harness every where I go. This is harness is awesome.
My friend lets me borrow his harness when I forget mine at the gym. I'm pretty forgetful, so I've used it a bunch of times. Finally, I'm getting my own. For me, the harness is super comfortable, and packs down into nothingness. I probably wouldn't use this to trad (because of the lack of gear loops), but this is the harness for indoor or sport climbing.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I always hated lead belaying with a gri-gri. I've used the Smart several times in the gym and it seems like a good compromise between having a device that autolocks (though I wouldn't trust it to lock as I do a grigri) with the ease of use of an ATC (though not AS easy since the rope sometimes slips off the central groove and gets caught).

I'm interested in how it behaves when belaying someone from the top during multi-pitch climbs. Anyone used this device in that situation?

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'll start by saying I have strangely sweaty feet, so I don't think I'll buy synthetic shoes ever again. These shoes were comfy right out of the box and I was very happy with them for a couple months.... HOWEVER
1. They stretched. I bought synthetic figuring it wouldn't stretch, but the ventilation holes all over the upper slowly enlarged and the shoe stretched a full size.
2. They got siiiiiiiiiiiiiiinky. Like... I don't want to touch my shoe because the stink got on my hand type of stinky.

Overall, they get the job done. They were a good comfy shoe, especially for all day out-door use.
