Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: 10

These shoes are incredibly good, very sticky, very comfy. The Two strap closure means that they fit almost as snuggly as lace ups (think LS Muiras) with all the convenience of Velcro.

The only cons are the toe rubber only convers about half the toe, leaving a seam exposed that you can wear through pretty quick if you toe hook a lot, and the heel doesn't have rubber on the sides, so if you have off axis heel hooks you are on the Synthetic 'leather' material instead of grippy rubber.

Sizing is big. I wear a 10.5 in evolve Shaman and a 44/45 in La Sportiva anything, I have these in 10 for all day (2-3 hour gym session) wear, but could wear a 9.5 for aggressive fit with no problem.

The only shoe that I think is better than this in its category is the Butora Acro, but the Tenaya Oasi's are very deserving of a 5 star rating.

Update: After about 7 1/2 months of almost exclusive use (8or 9hours a week avg) I have finally worn through the toe. I can probably climb another week before I absolutely have to retire them so that I can get them resoled. The ONLY bad thing I could say about this shoe is that it seems to smell even worse than your average climbing shoe. I just ordered another pair, so that I never have to be without them.

I carry this knife every single day, and have for about 5 months. I use it probably 100 times a day (I work in a warehouse) It holds and edge even through tape, cardboard and even the occasional METAL strap. I can easily open and close it with one hand. Only con is that every 3 or 4 weeks I need to tighten up all the screws as it gets a bit wobbly, and the clip starts to loosen, but if you just do that whenever you sharpen it it works out fine.

Unlike a few people I have NEVER had this knife unintentionally open. That being said I always put the switch to the lock position before returning it to my pocket.
