I've always had a sport harness even though I do
mostly trad. The harness deliveries comfort and
safety, but it is hard to get the right adjustment.
Once you do it's great. My only beef is the gear loops are set too far back on the sides. The rear
loops are just about worthless. Since I do alot of
trad and I need all four loops, I wouldn't choose this
harness again. Great beginner harness.

I'm sorry , but I completely disagree with the two
previous reviews. One, it's twists, kinks and knots
so badly we knicknamed "Ivy". Two, I took a leader
fall 5 ft. above my last piece of gear and it stretched 25 ft. below my last piece of gear. It felt more like I was a bungee cord. I never used it for
trad after that. But, it is pretty.

I love this shoe!! It combines comfort and performance in one package. they're great for slightly overhanging routes. Unlike 5/10 shoes this
shoes will last. The rubber is second only to stealth.
I had 2mm shaved of the bottom.I thought the standard was a little too thick. The staff at Evolve
are great to work with.
