They are very similar, and I think they are both great boots. I use the Fugitive's myself as my main hiking/backpacking boot.

The biggest difference between the two is with their last (i.e. whats between the sole of the boot and the liner) and with the sole's themselves. Although the differences are very small, like types of material making up the shank and stuff. The Flames may also have an extra component to the sole, like a beefier heal-box or something like, that than the Fugitive's do if I remember right.

I have used the Reverso 3 with half ropes as small as 8.2, and it held great, had good friction and was easy to lower etc. I have not used it with an actual twin rope setup, but I would think it would work.

From what I understand the new Reverso 3 replaced both the original Reverso and the Reversino that you mention. For those who are not familiar with the Reversino, it was the Reverso, except smaller for small diamater ropes.

Anyhow, I would think you'd be fine, Petzle states that the device is designed for twin ropes greater than or equal to 7.5mm...if your not convinced, I've got one of the older Reversino's that I'm not using...

I have a Marmot 15 degree down bag (Pinnacle) and I fit it into the small. I first started out with a large stuff sack for the Pinnacle, but then switched to the small to conserve space. It's not as easy to stuff, that is for sure, and it takes some work to roll the top closed, but in reality, it takes maybe 2 or 3 minutes to stuff the bag, compress it some and then roll the top closed before you compress with the straps.

This is a great lamp. It is not perfect, but it is very, very good.The lowest brightness setting is still brighter than most standard 3AAA cell LED lights out there, which I'm sure we all have owned at one point in time. The brightest setting is very bright, especially with the diffuser down where the lamp is in "spot" mode.I've used this lamp since February in all conditions from alpine starts in the mountains to midnight trail runs, to after dark, rainy night runs on the road after work and kids have settled down. Even with oncoming traffic blasting me with their brights, I can still see the road in front of me with this light.I was worried at first about the battery compartment not being entirely sealed, but it functions fine during heavy rain.I hesitate to give it 5 stars because due to the battery compartment being so heavy, I need to occasionally tighten the straps mid run to prevent the unit from slipping out of place. Other than that little complaint, the unit is flawless in my eyes.

I use the same Sea to Summit eVent compression sack you have pictured, but I use a size small. It's a really tight fit to get the dry sack rolled closed at the top, but if you work at it you can get it rolled three times and then snap the buckle closed. I've not tried the bag in the XS size compression sack, but I would venture to say it won't fit. I dare someone to prove me wrong though, just not with my sleeping bag... :)
