Feels great during long cases in the OR. I have pretty flat feet, so there was some initial adjusting to the level of arch support in the shoe. Only complaint is that they seem to accumulate a bit of a smell. Otherwise, great shoe and blood cleans off easily (I suppose other stuff would clean off easily too :) ). Typically wear an 11.5US men's shoe, and went with a 45.0 here. Good fit with a little extra room, which is how I think these shoes are designed to be worn.
I'm normally a 12 US street shoe and went with a 46.0 on these. They fit nicely (I like a little extra space in my shoe than most probably). The shoes feel sturdy on the trail with solid soles, but not overly heavy or bulky. They also breathe reasonably well (even in San Antonio heat). Overall, I'd recommend 'em.
Lightweight poles that collapse into a really tiny, easily packable size. I took them up for a day tour on Rainier last month, and they did their job just fine. Didn't experience any issues with the flicklock system, which was quick and easy to use. Only gripe is that they bent pretty significantly after I took a little tumble. I guess it's what you should expect from poles like these. Luckily Backcountry.com has an awesome return policy.
