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.

You should get the smallest you can bear, not hurting, but your toes should be slightly curved, it does make a big difference. With other brands you usually need to get one size smaller than your street shoe size, Mad Rock already takes that into consideration, usually you'll need half a size bigger. Also try out different shoes, some may adjust to your feet better, shape matters. When I started climbing I got big sized pretty comfortable shoes, It felt great at first but after 2 or 3 months you'll notice you need a better grip, and more sensitivity, otherwise you'll have to stick to medium or large footholds. Your fingers shouldn't move at all inside, you'll probably have to take them off between your first climbs, but that's the way it's supposed to be. Remember these would give almost half a size, while unlined leather ones will give up to a full size after a while.

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!!
