nice, warm, and comfy sleeping bag. tried it a couple of times when lows were 40ish. I was defintely warm if not too warm early evening. i'm 6'3" and the long is long enough for my height which is awesome. the center zip is cool but doesn't go all the way down so if your feet are too warm you can't really have them air out a bit although the zipper is bidirectional so you can air out a bit below waist level.

... an article on 8a.nu mentions a flaw of the device where the rope can slide outside the safety cam and become jammed on the side of the cam. It's not supposed to damage the rope or anything but still kinda weird.
Other than that little concern, it's pretty solid, feels secure to belay with. Not as easy to feed as the cinch though.
I like it way more than the first one because of its size, making it easier to belay with.

This sweater is pretty cool indeed. Great design, colors (black/blue), awesome hoody (big enough for me: 6'3" 180lbs and I got the medium), great fit, very warm and light!
The only problem I have with it is with regards to the sleeves: They're a bit narrow which make it a slightly difficult to remove the sweater without tearing apart the cuffs. But I understand that that design makes it warmer too, so I am ok with it. I don't think I would even mention it if I wouldn't use it for belaying: Put it on for belaying and take it off before climbing. So I had to do that a lot yesterday.

by far better than grigri and atc. feeds super easy and w/o any effort at all. super light and small form factor. once used to it, it's easy to unlock as well, but yeah it does take a bit of time to get familiar with the device. same goes for lowering. keep your break hand on though, just like the grigri, the rope can go through it in some very rare cases.

I like to pack these into my pack when I go to a rocky crag so that I don't bang my toes on rocks. This is perfect for that. Plus the sole is thick enough to be comfy to hike a bit.
It does make my feet sweat easily though. But that's usually the case with all rubber base sole (like sanuk's... gotta wear socks with these).
