Couldn't be happier 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: endercore, 2006-12-11

I love these shoes, they have been great for me. Sport, Bouldering, Indoor Bouldering, it's been all good. If you want to climb trad, get somthing else but otherwise these have been amazing for me. I wear a street size 10, and I have 9.5 in these. After a pitch or two and my feet start to sweat they fit perfectly. A lot of people complain about the heel, but I like the way it makes the shoe fit, and it helps with heel hooks. I've been able to climb slab, and RRG overhanging stuff with these shoes no problem. I love 'em.

decent resole, painfully slow, kind of expensive 2 out of 5 stars

I was pretty happy when i first got my anasazi's back from these guys, but that was probably because they were gone for over a month, even tho I paid for two day shipping on the way home and I just wanted them back. It looked at first as if the did a good job, but they are already coming off around the toes (edges) and I've only had them back for a month-month and a half of climbing 2-3 times a week. Bottom line, I'm going somewhere else next time.

this device is classic, works incredibly and is super cheap. Plus it is really simple. What's not to love?

good price, good product 4 out of 5 stars

This is a pretty comfortable harness, great for sport climbing or a day in the gym. I wear it all day all the time and never really have a problem comfort wise. I wish I wish I would have tried it on before buying in online, but no big deal. The harness is just a bit bigger than I'd like and I think that all things I do not like about it (can pinch my legs during some belays, especally if its I'm hanging) would be solved if I had one that fit right. Otherwise I've been pleased with this harness, I bought It at a reasonable price and have beat the hell out if it over the past year and it's been holding up great. Love having the adjustable leg loops to, big help.

hard to keep fit right 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: endercore, 2006-12-05

I have a hard time keeping the chin straps adjusted correctly, I feel like i am constantly fighting it. Otherwise this helmet is pretty good, lightweight, low profile... adjustable sizes. I hate wearing helmets, and life isn't to bad when I have to wear this one.
