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

These things can make good footholds out of a lot of crappy stuff, sometimes nothing. So you could climb to the moon if you wanted.
They have good sticky rubber, that's durable furthermore. Me and my cousin both have em and they're great. The "love bump" took some getting used to I suppose, but it's been a non factor. It helps these shoes fit like a true glove. They are worth the cash. Plus, they are easy on and off with the wide opening and the three Velcro straps. I go two or three times a week and climb in a fairly sharp area, but they are holding up great thus far.

I usually wear a 11-11.5 street and got these in 11. They fit tight, but I prefer that. So, if you run about the same and don't like tight, then go up to the 11.5.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had mine for about three years. I don't leave without it (almost got me in trouble at the WTC monumnet in NYC). It is fantastic. I use it for just about anything. I've done little repairs on my car and it's handy because it gives me another set of pliers and a screw-driver. It's pretty light weight but, it's still made of stainless steel predominately, so it's heavier than most things you have on person.
The best part for me though is the pocket clip. I hang mine on the inside of my pants or shorts, right under the belt. It doesn't shift and it doesn't feel uncomfortable. But, that makes it easy to carry around. I was able to help a guy fix his bike her on campus one time because i had it with me. So, it's totally worth the buy. It's become so useful that i would immediately buy a new one, or one similar if I lost it.

I got this at my local shop. It's outstanding. Both ends allow you to belay without fear. It works with the Grigri and with an ATC. It's a great carabiner and Metolius went out of their way to get a UIAA certification on it which just means it's been subjected to a few additional tests.

Any of you have a preference between a dyneema PAS vs A Nylon one? Some people complain that the Nylon stretches. I personally don't care about that because at 40 inches away from chains, the so-called "stretch" seems insignificant enough to really affect anything. Plus theese are a tad cheeper than the dyneema ones and seem just as good.

I love DMM biners. Honestly I think they are the best on the market and this is no exception. I got it for anchoring in at chains and during climbs like multi-pitches. Phenomenal. The smaller I-Beam construction is awesome because it fits anywhere. It's lightweight but honestly that hasn't really affected me because I don't exactly climb Half-Dome on the weekends or anything like that. And it's DMM. They make awesome quality stuff in Britain. I highly suggest this one to anyone considering it. Well worth the bucks.
