How do you find the sizing of the Olympus Mons Evo compared to the Nepals?
I've never tried them one, but I wear a size 46 Nepal Extreme.

I ask because you have the 46 Mons Evo but a pair for 47 Nepals for sale.

The OlyMons are more forgiving as they have more cushioning, are doubles and not meant to be as precise as the Nepals.

My right foot is notably shorter than my left, which is why I tried the 46 OlyMons, but they were too short on my left foot, so I'm definitely a 47 in Sportiva (Scarpa 47 is too short on my left foot).

Some people find a slight difference in fit/sizing across the Sportiva models, but I can't say I do. I have OlyMons, Spantik, Nuptse, K3 and Nepal Extemes, all in 47, all well used.

Hi Damo.

I might be interested in the Mons however would like to try them on as I am a 46 1/2 in the Millet Everest - where are you based?

In regards to the Macpack jacket - do you know the model name/no? and what is the age of it?

I'm in Goulburn but will be in Sydney Thur-Sun, lower north shore, if you want to try them on (which is a good idea). Millet Everest sizes are wacky.

I can't remember the model name of the jacket. It's about 4 or 5 years old, but never worn. I've just had it stored away. IMO it's a much better climbing softshell than anything they've put out since (which is why I've hung onto it so long).

Hello Damo,

I have the jacket.

It's awesome (just like the Cloudveil).

Thanks again,

That clear out won't make much of a dent in the spare bedroom compost heap...
