I have a couple pairs of these pants. I'm 5'10 and my first pair was regular length--I wished they were a couple inches longer, so when I got a new pair recently, I got the long and they're great. They are sized a little large--I probably could have fit a 4, but since I knew I'd be climbing in them, I opted for the roomier 6. These are my go to winter climbing pants. They strike a good balance between being warm and having a good amount of stretch for high stepping and heel hooking. If I want to get in a quick gym session before work, I wear these--I just brush off the chalk and I'm ready for the office.
These shoes are amazing. There was no break in period. At all. Went from the box to the trail with zero blisters, zero pain, zero hot spots. The trails I run on are a mix of technical, uneven rocky terrain and slippery southern red clay. The speedcross handles both perfectly. I haven't had any of the early wear that others have experienced. The only thing that took getting used to were the laces--at first, they didn't feel like they could synch down tight enough, but after a couple runs I got used to them. I will be buying these again and again.
Thin, but warm. The R1 is great on its own in the spring and fall and is a perfect layer in the winter. I've used it hiking, running, and climbing. It has a slim fit--a long sleeve tee fits perfect underneath, but a sweater would not. The fabric is sleek, but the fabric on the palm is starting to show a little wear. I also have to be careful when climbing on southern sandstone because it has a sandpaper quality that will shred any fabric. The balaclava is designed really well--the angled zipper keeps it from pressing on the bridge of the nose. The only thing I wished it had is two side hand pockets. It's also pricy, but for its intended purpose, it's great.
I've had my pair for about a year now. I bought my street shoe size and they've been great. Technically, I think I could use a split size as my left foot is tight, but my right is slightly loose. They've held up really well. I've climbed in them for almost a year, 2-3 times per week in the gym with the occasional weekend trip to get on some real rock. They aren't super aggressive, though they are meant to turn your toes down slightly. The toe rubber did round out within a few months and I'm just starting to see the rand on the left foot (now we know where I need to focus my footwork attention), so I'll be sending them to get resoled soon. They are synthetic so I haven't noticed a lot of stretch, but they can start to stink if you don't take care of them. Warm water, a soft bristled toothbrush, and dryer sheet can keep the smell away. I have nothing but love for the Anasazis and C4.
Awesome shoes! These are great for walking around town or around the house. They are super light and comfy. I wear a size 9 and bought a size 9. They are a bit loose (washing them might help with that). I wear them after climbing and after wearing tight climbing shoes, these feel like heaven.
