It has all features available, it's easy to use, cheaper than petzl(what isn't). Great for the gym, sport or trad. Medium and high friction modes, autolocking, you can use a cordelette or a carabinner to help you release the brake. You can belay two climbers on single ropes or one with half/twin ropes on virtually any useable rope diameter. You can rappel off the medium friction side, with a trickier setup you can also rappel with autolock.

These bottles will last until you loose them- there's no way of breaking them. Also cheaper than other brands. The cap has a big loop for clipping it to your backpack and also two small holes inside to handle the fuel without spilling. In Aconcagua the porters use mules to get your stuff to BC, this is your best option, no leaks at all. Hope this helps.

Awesome for it's price, I bought it on sale here and I have been really satisfied with the warmth, weight, and quality of this product. Just to clarify, it doesn't have an insulated hood, so the one it has is mostly worthless. Other than that it's perfect, just be careful, on cold days it gets people really envious!! I paired it with a TNF Mountain Light GTX shell (zip-in compatible) and it rocks!!

Great stove, though to simmer but with time you'll get it, just don't over pump it. You can pretty much burn anything with this stove, which is great when you are far away or just lazy about finding a camping store to get canisters. Be ultra careful if using it inside your tent, this thing is a torch and you are playing with liquid fuel. Have in mind this stove is a no-no for TSA agents, you must clean them really good before getting on a plane, and sometimes even if it is clean they'll just take it. Also some crazy lady from Aloha Airlines may think you are some kind of a terrorist(it happened).

I've been using this tent for a year now, mountaineering in the Andes, close to Aconcagua(will be right there next summer).
It's totally amazing, no stabilizing strings at all, and it's seriously unbelievable stable, I've spent some nights where I was scared to stay out because of the wind, IT WAS RAGING out there, the tent didn't even feel the stress.
Condensation might be a problem in humid places though, it's very dry here and I still get some condensation in the morning.
In my opinion perfect for high altitude expeditions, I've used it over the snow many times without any problems.
It's also really light, you can use this solo without excessive overweight.
Only one complain: no pockets, just one next to your feet, which is not really useful.
