Great harness 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: knieveltech, 2009-07-13


I've been climbing in this harness for a few months now and it's great. Super-comfortable and the gear loops are perfect. My only complaint is the buckle system. Having quick-cinch buckles (like a singing rock harness) would take this from great to perfect.

Excellent 5 out of 5 stars

Caught a massive whipper this weekend, got yarded off a ledge and up into a roof in the process. Could have been a bad scene with an ATC, no problems with the cinch. Bomber and simple to use. I highly recommend it.

Yet another Sharma video. Despite some rad locations and sick lines this one comes off pretty bland. All the personality has been edited out.

vile 1 out of 5 stars

I took a pair of these out last weekend and was in disbelief at how badly they sucked. Edging, smearing, jamming, it didn't matter what I tried, these shoes consistently failed to perform. I'll stick to moccs.

Kick ass! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: knieveltech, 2007-09-11


These shoes are incredible! They stick like crazy. My only complaint is due to a quirk in the heel cup design heel hooking can be somewhat uncomfortable/painful. Even so, these are the best shoes I've had to date and I definitely plan on keeping a pair in my arsenal from now on. I bought mine a full size smaller than what my foot measured in the store. I broke them in a bit by wearing them around the house for 15 minutes a day for a week. After that and a full day bouldering session they fit like they're sprayed on. Fantastic!
