I love these pants and use them for every day wear and for climbing. They're really durable, even after a lot of brushing against rock outside. They're water-resistant, but definitely not water-proof. Since they have the scotch guarding, it's a bit stiffer when you first wear it, but will soften a little after a couple washes. As for stretchiness, they do have a bit of stretch (more than your average pair of jeans, but definitely don't expect leggings).
I usually wear between a size 4-6 pant/size Small in leggings. These pants fit really well and fitted on my thighs and calves without suffocating my legs, but the waist is a bit looser than I'd like. Since it fits well on my legs, my pants aren't going to fall off, but it's got a bit more fabric when you sit down (I'm choosing to wear a belt to avoid some of this). I have these in 3 colors (black, coal, and moonrock) and compared to the black and coal pants, the moonrock is noticeably smaller even at the same size 6. They fit a lot better in the waist than the coal and black, but since it's also a bit tighter in the legs, they're maybe a little too stiff in the knees to climb in. Regardless, I really recommend these pants, but I wish there were a drawstring like on the men's Zion pants; the sizing might not be very forgiving for every body type either.

I love the design of the heel of this shoe! I have been wearing the Lady Solutions (Size 38.5) for some time now, but have hated the large gaps in the heel. I've tried on La Sportiva's Sqwamas and liked it better than the solutions, but the heel was still a bit too big. The Agros fits my foot perfectly all over without any excess space. I was nervous about the rubber stickiness quality, but Evolv's rubber has gotten quite a bit better and is more than enough for the heel/toe hooks (I do like La sportiva's rubber the slightest bit better still).

I had to size up a full size; I typically wear women's 7.5/8 in street size and previously wore size 8 in Evolv's elektras (women's), but I had to order 7.5 men's/9 women's for the Agros, because the size 6.5 mens/8 women's were far too small (I couldn't even jam my feet in). The 7.5's fit perfectly and are comfortable, yet still tight enough for performance. I do have to take them off every 3rd climb, but the pain isn't ever unbearable. I really like how comfortable and wide the foot entry is. Overall, this shoe is aesthetically pleasing, performs well so far, and fits like a dream for my small heeled foot.
