Besides the weight being less, the size being smaller and the lowering mechanism having a little bit more grip, I feel like it is similar to the original Grigri. I lost my original and this was a nice purchase however I don't know if I would have upgraded specifically for the weight and size as there are other things I can do to trim that in my pack.

This thing heats up really fast. I also enjoyed the indicator on the side that showed how hot the water was. The lid was a nice feature. The lid functions as a normal coffee cup lid that you can drink from, handy for making your coffee in. Also pouring from the cup was worry free since it is a spout too. I'd recommend using this if you are in the market for a stove.

It was very nice to be able to wake up and have a cup of coffee in the morning camping. I packed a small bag of coffee with the stove and it all fit easily. It is a pain though to realize that you have to wash the cup out after if you want to use the cooking system again though. Not much you can really do about that. There is some technique involved in lowering the press slowly. Then again this was my first french press experience. I'm sure it'll get better in time.

I actually have multiples of this rope bag. The tarp is large and the pouch can store a 70m rope. The straps are solid and I've never had a problem packing the rope up nice and small. The buckles are really nice for cinching down the straps smoothly. They have been really durable so far as well. If I ever need another rope bag I'd buy one of these.

Finally got to use this down in Red Rocks, NV this last weekend in guide mode. It worked well and I would have been confident to have it lock up to catch a fall for the top roper. Belaying a lead is smooth this with device. I've always used a Gri Gri or Black Diamond's ATC but this is a very worth addition. I am replacing my ATC with this.

I have good and bad feels about these.
The Good:
They are small and fairly easy to install. They are sufficiently bright for commuting around the town. Apparently they are small enough that they haven't been stolen off my bike when I've left them on all day.

The bad:
I don't get the charging process. Once I have charged them they flash bright for quite awhile (about 2 seconds off .1 second on) after being off the charger.
The front light blink speed is seizure speed. I don't really find it useful.

Ultimately I would probably buy these again though because they are handy to have and have worked great so far.

This is my first U-lock. It doesn't come with insurance which would have been nice. I find U-locks are harder to fit around your bike but I haven't had my bike stolen as it was with a cable lock so it seems like this works just fine. It comes with 3 keys, no lights, a bike frame mount (haven't tried but am thinking of it) and a rubber protective covering so it doesn't hurt your bike. I ride a Raleigh Grand Sport 2008 and fits the frame, front wheel and bike rack with a little bit of effort but not unreasonable.

I have a Raleigh Grand Sport 2008. These fenders fit on the bike with a problem. I do have troubles with adjusting to make sure there is no rubbing when i am accelerating hard. I will hopefully update this later once snow begins to fall so I can comment on really wet conditions.

I bought right before a climbing trip in Joe's Valley. After spending the night on it I think the double was enjoyable to have the extra room when sleeping in. I was able to reduce the wind by folding them over me. The hammock packed down super small and was easy to setup. It was also pretty easy to get back in the stuff sack that doubles as a gear storage for when you're in the hammock. I found just buying regular webbing to be useful than buying straps. You can do multiple things with the webbing if you wish.
