Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Yep. Finally pitched, pretty far, on the number 2.

Needless to say, it held.

And - actually - contrary to my C4's (at times) - there is no visible kinkage in the cable (in the Ultralight's case - dyneema) - which is quite nice to see.

Clinically proven to hold a fall, at least for me, and I'm quite stoked about it - not that I wasn't certain before.

Same cam - and lighter. Thanks BD.

This thing is the coolest thing since sliced bread.

The main pocket - marketed to fit your "phone" - actually fits a 12 oz can of your favorite malted barley beverage - PERFECTLY.

The other zipper pocket on the side fits you cell phone - (up to iphone 6 sized) - it has a mesh keeper on the inside so as you pull it out you wont drop your phone.

The other fully mesh pocket on the side is perfect for a candy bar or sunflower seeds etc.

The jacket synch on the bottom works amazing.

When all of this stuff is in this MICRO backpack - you really cant tell the difference in weight (at least I couldnt with my full rack clipped to my harness)

Oh the pleasure of crushing a beer while watching your partner flail on seconding the crux pitch.

EVERY multi-pitch climber needs to own one of these. I dont know why it's taken someone so long to make this, but of course Mammut would be the ones.

(also fits a flask of whiskey)

okay, I'm done now. Takes multipitch climbing to a whole new level.

My previous helmet was a bit heavy, and a bit awkward.

This helmet is extraordinarily comfortable - it sits much lower on my head (think bucket) - and by this, it is much more low profile and visually conforming.

I have a slightly larger dome and got the larger size
(56-61cm) - and it fits perfectly - but there are tons of options to dial in the fit. The helmet includes extra foam inserts (12mm or 7mm) and the straps adjust by a decent amount to allow for all head and neck sizes. I was able to get mine to sit perfectly within 2 minutes.

It's also insanely lightweight. It honestly doesn't even feel like you are wearing anything on your head. I always rock a visor underneath my helmets, and at 200 grams (0.44 lbs!) this thing feels like air. The design includes a plastic top, and an EPP back and side - seems to be the perfect hybrid for protecting rockfall from above.

I have also used it as a ski helmet for touring a few times this spring - just rocked a beanie underneath - and it's great for that as well.

I bought a 40m of this rope for gym climbing and not only is it perfect for climbing, super supple, durable, and gives soft yet perfect falls - it just looks coooool!

My partner also got one of these, and from my rope to his rope, there is a significant difference in the pattern - it's pretty unique.

I also appreciate the idea that they produced this rope in accordance to bluesign - but also that this rope is produced with what would previously have been thrown away.

Affordable as well! My personal recommendation to anyone looking for a unique rope - especially for the gym!
