Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've only used this top roping and sport climbing so I can't say anything about its ability to belay followers, but it's very smooth when feeding out ropes under 10 mm. Anything above 10 and there's a noticeable amount of friction and it just takes a little more effort to move the rope through. The locking feature works great and rappelling in the 'reversed' orientation is similar to any tube-style belay device. Overall, the build appears to be very solid and seems like it will last a long time and withstand a lot of punishment.
As far as the carabiner goes, its definitely not the lightest available, but the gate and screw lock are both smooth and the anti-cross loading bar is nice & tight and works like its supposed to.

Just got back from a long weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park where it dipped down into the low 40s and I was nice and toasty but not overly hot. The zippers dont snag too much and the loops to secure a sleeping pad under it are a nice feature. The only downside is the included compression sack. It feels like its going to split apart at the seams when you're compressing the bag, but you just have to be careful. Overall a very nice bag for the price!
