Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like how versatile this is. I'm glad it was my first choice and I've never looked back.

The deep V notches in the brake add a little too much friction on rappels, but they're great for belaying. This isn't really a problem since the manual says you can run your rope out either direction when rapping. I guess it's more of a preference thing. I suppose there's a chance I might run my rope out the high friction side if I weighed more.

I love the extra ring, and am all together stoked on this piece of gear.

I've been using this a few times a week for a few months now and I can say the only thing this harness is missing is a haul loop on the back. Given that this isn't really a big wall type of setup, I suppose it doesn't really need one. I guess it's not really much of a con when you consider what a lightweight harness it is.

It's comfortable. My big legs fit in the loops just fine. The measurements seem spot on. It folds up pretty neatly for sliding into my small pack.

This pack fits perfectly. It is adjustable enough that it can be comfortably positioned low on the hips or high on the waist. The perfect fit also prevents the pack from slipping around you or twisting.
I've been looking for the perfect lumbar pack to take mountain biking and this is not it. It's the closest that I've found, and it might sound absurd, but it actually has too much storage capacity. I realize that this pack was not designed for cycling, so I can't actually fault it, because none of my gripes would apply if I were hiking. If I wanted this much storage for cycling, I'd use a back pack.
I appreciate that the main pockets are very compressible and I really like the side pouches for quick access items. The pack really is a treat to use, I just don't need the extra water bottle spot and could do with a main pocket half the size. If that meant the bottle could be angled a bit more for easier access on the bike, I don't think I would be able to fault it.

the photo and description seem a bit mismatched. does this come with one or two bottles? and are they "7oz each" or "70z" or is it the one in the photo? Also, it says multiple pockets in the description, but i can only see one. Is there a photo showing the other pocket? It also says there is a race number snap. Is that for the back, the front, or the side?
