I still think there are ways to improve belay devices but I don't know what they are. Feeding rope is easy but not perfect, taking in rope in "reverso" mode is a solid tug, but consistent. I think it's a great all-around do-everything belay device. I use it pretty much everywhere other than the gym and really like it. Grab one.

Lightweight, Weatherproof, Simple, Killer. Wore it up McKinley, and now wear it on ice-climbing trips. Hey "iro" I agree, much better than paclite, and if it's something you're going to see yourself using regularly, it's worth the step up (more money, but weight difference is negligible to all but the tag-trimming, gram counters). I personally tend to be overheated as opposed to cold, and this jacket did a great job of keeping me dry from both inside and out. My only beef is that the pockets are placed high so they won't interfere with a pack belt, but they are really high, they're more like chest pockets (I know, picky-picky). Really love it a lot. Great product.Photo: Marmot Exum Jacket with MT. HDWR Compressor Jacket over it at 16,200' on Denali.
