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

I bought a 70m to split with a friend into two 35m gym ropes. First day on it, immediately noticed how smooth and easy to work with it was (much moreso than my other 9.8mm). Durability remains to be seen of course, but since it's a gym rope it won't be encountering too many sharp edges. Love that it's made from recycled materials, too, with the added bonus of a super cool color pattern.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'll start by saying this is my second pair. I somehow lost only one of my last pair, and I didn't hesitate to replace with the same shoes.
It's an aggressive shoe that is excellent for bouldering, but it really shines on top-rope/lead as well. I've used it in the gym, as well as single pitch in Yosemite and Castle Rock state park. The heel is like an icepick. It's super hard and as long as you have a good fit, it's as solid as anything to crank on. The curved point of the toe also really gives you nice leverage to pull yourself laterally.
Maybe the only issue is that they might not be as comfortable for all-day wear as some others, but I haven't had much of an issue with that other than the first full day with them. If I lost them tomorrow I'd buy them right back up again. Love these shoes!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: 30

These are super soft and comfortable pants. I had a few gripes when I tried them on the first time, but ultimately I never even noticed them at all (imo the mark of good activewear) when climbing.
Pros:
1) Way more comfy/soft than the Zions I bought these to supplement for laundry days
2) Cordura blends are awesomely durable and still soft
3) Elastic cords around ankles help make up for fit issues

Cons:
1) Way too long for what I'd expect from the waist sizing, but with the elastic drawstrings it's been totally fine while climbing
2) Baggier than I'd like, but to be fair, once I was climbing I didn't notice them at all. When you're high-stepping you really don't want to have to waste energy stretching tight fabric anyway.

Overall I'm still really into them. Haven't taken them outside yet, but I think they'd be less scratchy feeling than Zions.

Being quick-drying and anti-microbial, wool garments are great candidates for being your one pair of camp clothes on a multi-day trip. Bought these in advance of a 7 day bike trip to be my off-bike undies. Very comfortable the whole time and not smelly. Might buy more pairs in the future, but you can get a lot out of a single pair if you're smart ;) about it.
