I have climbed in these shoes for only two weeks now and I absolutely love them. I expected to have a painful fit because of the downturned toe but to my surprize they are extremely cumfortable! Their edging power is insane, you can literally stand on the edge of a dime! I climb in the Miura and Cliff as well, neiter even come close to matching the performance of the testarossa! They are completely worth the 130.00!

good shoe, downturned toe is kind of painful, excellent edging capabilities, but it definately isnt an all day climber!

This is a very cumfortable harness, I do have one prblem with it, which is not at all a problem with it, but rather with me...mine is too large. Nonetheless i can sit in a hanging belay for a good forty-five minutes before I remember I am wearing it. I am 6' 145 lbs, and this harness performs like a dream!

I think this is a great helmet, it is cumfortable, easily adjustable and multifunctional. I use it for both caving and climbing. Its a great helmet and worth the eighty bucks!
