Ryan Ivy's Bio

Anyone looking for some screaming deals on outdoor equipment and solar energy gear, come visit me at the West Valley Utah Costco and get up to at least 25% to 40% off the season's top gear from June 22nd-August 1st.

Outdoors enthusiast and fanatical gear junkie, I'll let ya know what's legit. Half sasquatch, half paul bunyon. I spend most of my time in the wilderness or with a blue ox.

I've either personally tested all the equipment I write reviews for or have received feedback from friends or family that are also outdoors enthusiasts.

the chest ascender works great. good piece to have for beginners doing any type of ascending. it's good because it'll help prevent the climber/ascender from conking their head on the side of the rock. the added auto-locking device prevents any slippage. also good to have for any type of building or tower ascending. definitely does its job

much easier in my opinion for descending than the grigri and many other devices. you squeeze the the handle and it allows you to control the speed of your descent (you can get cooking on this thing if you're not careful, i don't mind it though). this is THE iconic caving device, and works extremely well in descent. not my cup of tea for ascending stuff though. overall, everyone needs one if all you do is cave or abseil. i've had good experience with mine.

ok, well if i had kids i'd name at least one of em grigri. this is such a classic device. great for beginners too. but be sure to get proper instruction before using this baby. thread this the wrong way and you're partner won't climb with your dumb bum anymore. it's a little heavy and not the lightest thing out there, but it's simplicity and easy use won't give you arm and hand cramps holding on to your partner during their frequent long pansy breaks. overall...this is one inspired device that has upped the ante in protecting climbers.
