Sent 2 pairs of shoes jan 27th from the E coast with instructions to fix rands if necessary. Got them back Feb 6th with both of my GF's mythos rands fixed (they needed it bad) and one of my Testarossas rands done (hole through the toe) the other was fine and left alone. Did what they had to and not more and came back super fast. Will definitely use them again. They are also less $$ than most other resoles too and can choose from any sportiva or 5.10 rubber

I actually found one of these and have not used my Jaws since. I like the shorter metal keeper loop as it doesnt allow it to sag as much making each slack pull more efficient. as others have said the thick walls have not polished down as quickly as the jaws.

All the good stuff folks have already said. I wish mine came with the drawings on the side to make learning how to set it up for autolock a bit faster but not bad now that i have it down. Belaying the leader is a bit more clunky than an ATC but not bad for trad speed.

Just got this last week and i'm really happy with it. Fit is really nice and comfortable. the padding inside isnt too hot but a great cushion from those low roofs that come out of no where :P

Comfort has to be one of the #1 criteria for a helmet because if you don't want to wear it.. then you'll find excuses not to. I've worn a couple of the BD and Eldrid kinds and those i would not wear on a regular basis
