I see that Rock + Run are selling them for 135 which is a cracking price.
Does anyone have any experience of using them for UK winter climbing? And how is the sizing? I currently use Cumbres so presume sizing is similar.

In reply to Andy Mountains: In my size (12-13) the omegas are really very nice to climb in as they are stiff, really stiff. My trangos for example have noticeable flex when using them. They climb well on the steep stuff but the sole is horrible on rock

However they aren't nearly as comfortable to walk in, they aren't desperately warm (for what they are) and the plastic may crack.

For 135 they are a cracking pair of boots if you know their limitations.

I just bought a pair. I figured at that price they were worth a punt. all the usual plastic v leather type arguments apply.

Looks like Will Gadd is wearing a pair on the 'Spray Ice' video? If their good enough for him....
