Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've got a pair of these that I've been using as ultra-lightweight ascenders. I've used them on 9.6 and 9.8mm ropes, and I have decided to return them because of their tendency to NOT ALWAYS GRIP THE ROPE. In fact, most of the time when I'm using them I'll stand up on the bottom ropeman, then push the top ropeman up only to have it slide right back down as I sit back in my harness and transfer weight to it. I had initially hoped to use these guys for TR soloing, but based on their performance as ascenders I've decided against it.

I got this, packed my pack with it the night before, and when I woke up this morning it had leaked several ounces of water into the bottom of my pack. There was no pressure on it, the cap was on tight, and the hose was fully attached. It is now on its way back to backcountry. Maybe I just got a bad one, but it definitely did not live up to the good things I've heard about this bag.

First off, these draws are great. Whenever my friends use them, I always get comments on how light they are and how easy clipping is. They look good, work well, and the gates open easily (but not TOO easily). The only thing to watch out for is that the bit where to wiregate connects to the nylon sling is pretty tight, which can cause the wiregate to turn sideways when they're jostled around and stay that way. I like the tight connection because it makes clipping easier - you just have to make sure to re-orient the wiregate biners to make sure they're straight when you're getting ready to start a route.
