This rope has been great. I've only used it about four times. Seem that I'm from michigan and it is the middle of winter, but I took it out to rock climb for the first time and it is a light rope so the hike in was so much easier. This weekend I took it ice climbing and used it the whole weekend, my friends other ropes were freezing up making had to belay, but the nomad stayed dry, and the 9.8 width made it easier, to belay as well. This rope has worked so well, so far.. One thing that was weird I ordered the red rope and the color came a little different, much darker of a red with some blue, it wasn't a big deal I ended up liking the darker red anyways, but just a heads up.
