Good gear, but misadvertised

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

When I ordered this package, I was expecting to receive the gear shown in the picture. However, I was sent a more basic ATC without any teeth and the screw gate carabiner (shown below). Both work great, but be warned that what you see might not be what you get.

Big Air for your Buck

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Not sure what I can say about this ATC that hasn't already been said, but I'll just outline a few features here. I normally use GriGri's more than ATC's, but for situations that require it or simply those that prefer the responsiveness of an ATC, this is a great piece of gear to add to the closet. It bites the rope well, provides good friction when you're braking, and it's super lightweight. When I have this thing clipped on to the back of my harness I forget that I have it on. The locking carabiner is fantastic as well and has completely converted me to Black Diamond carabiners for all of my climbing needs.

great package for versatile climbing

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

bought this as a gift for a friend who has finally graduated from top roping at the gym and is getting out side. I have pretty much used BD ATC's and carabiners for all of my belaying needs in my climbing career. More importantly I trust all of my partners to use them as well. The teeth on the XP are really nice if your partner is bigger than you and you need a little more control on the lowering, or if you are using some smaller diameter ropes on alpine or ice objectives. Always reassuring to slap the ropes in high friction mode to abseil with gloves on after a long cold day on an alpine route.

The Black Diamond Big Air XP belay is a great addition to any climbers plethora of gear. It can be used for any type of climbing. It is super light and very durable. The screwgate is a huge plus with the keylock nose to get rid of any snags. I would recommend this to any climber looking for a new ATC!

Fits my rope perfectly

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This ATC-XP is great! I love that it came in a package with a carabiner. I always keep this combination together because the carabiner is a little smaller than I prefer for things like top-rope anchors. This is definitely a great deal.

The rope I use is perfect for this XP-- 9.8 mm thickness. I've never experienced any stick with my rope in the system. Combo is super lightweight and simple. I'm really glad I bought this package!

Best Brakes

    One of the most versatile, super bomber, and idiot proof belay devices. I love how it handles my skinny 8mm rope for canyoneering all the way to my fat 10.5mm for sport climbing. Its light enough I don't really notice it on my harness. I've had both the older style and the newer style and can say that the weight difference is noticeable. If you have an old ATC and are thinking about upgrading DO IT! You won't regret it. The mini Pearabiner is solid and a great locker but a little smaller than I prefer for a belay biner. This package is a great deal with the best ATC around.

    Solid Purchase

      The newer ATC-XP with holes in the walls that comes with this is amazing. It's noticeably lighter and it seems to bite on the rope a lot better than my older ATC-XP. As an FYI, the belay device I got with this package was bright orange. This is a great package buy and I have zero complaints.
