Very comfortable. I don’t need to break it in. Because I order it on line it’s not as tight. But this is a trade off. I can wear it for long approach but not easy to climb since the toe area is roomy and soft. Scrambling to set up top rope anchor is more than adequate. Did not try it out on the rain yet. The price is high though. But quality is very good.
