For what they are they are good stuff. Super comfy, and climb well. Great shoe for long hauls, or for the gym. Wouldn't recomend it as a primary shoe, but works for a secondary.

It's comfortable, and affordable. Ok, so mabey it's not what you need for the nose project of El Cap, but that isn't what it was designed to do. If your doing TR or a 6-10 clip sport route, this is a great place to get started. It has sufficiant padding, and the firm gear loops keep your stuff off your legs. For what it is it's perfect.

Love the zipper! It's fast, clean, and something different. The shape keeps the chalk in the bottom, and the fleece is the best that I have seen. The brush holder runs side to side so you are less likely to impail yourself with it. If your using a ball this is not a good bag for you, but if loose is your way then this is the best bag out. It makes every other bag look like the same old thing. Can a bag ever be a true 5? Mabey not, but it can't really be a 1 either.

Nice! It has a good firm landing. I use at a 45 on some pretty sharp stuff and it never slips or bottoms out. Packs well and catches well...what else do you want.
