I bought these capri pants thinking I would use them as climbing pants. They have some features which are good: dry quickly when wet, can wear in warm weather, loose fit (they run large), comfy stretchy waistband. But after just one day of climbing the fabric began to pill up. After a few days of climbing the fabric is really worn. So the pants are not really for activities that are rough on fabrics. Otherwise just for hiking they are a good choice.

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

I upgraded to the Misty Mountain Silhouette from a more entry level lower cost harness. This harness is amazingly comfortable to hang in and a HUGE improvement in comfort from my previous harness. It is sleeker and lighter than the Cadillac, which is a plus as well. Pretty sure this harness will be an excellent all-arounder for both sport and trad climbing. The upturned gear loops seemed weird at first but it makes sense that they sit right next to your body when they are not holding gear. My only quibble is that the webbing straps used to tighten the waist and leg belts are too long, and I don't want to shorten them because I don't have sewing skills. Also I think the webbing on the belay loop should be tripled instead of double layer, so chances are I will get an extra belay loop added later (or replace the existing one once it's worn).

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

I've been running in these for a couple of months; with 150 miles on the shoes, a hole appeared in the cloth upper. Thus, I don't think this shoe is rugged enough for trails. I can still run in them with the hole. However, from day 1, the "rock plate" which is a cheap piece of clear lugged rubber on the sole, makes a squeaky noise when making contact with any surface except mud. This is annoying on the trails and embarrassing when walking through the gym or grocery store. If I were New Balance, I'd go back to the drawing board and completely revamp this shoe.
