Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For the price, these draws cannot be beat. I have bought quite a few of them and thing they are a great, basic draw. They are not the lightest, compact, or most attractive draws out there, but they are color coded, easy to use, and very solid. The orange/silver color coating is a nice feature as well. I've even ordered these draws just for their dogbones(to replace worn-out ones) and used the new biners to make more alpine draws.

I usually take one of these with me when I'm going on a fairly steep hike and enjoy the added stability while descending. The poles are light, quick to collapse/extend, and comfortable on the hands. The probe is quite sharp, which helps keep it from sliding out when on hard surfaces. Also makes a great baton!

I found the picture quality of this camera to be sub par to many other less expensive, and often lower megapixel digital cameras. On a tripod the pictures are decent but still not what I expected. I found this to be a cheap camera in a tough case. The interval video and photo feature's were the best part of the camera, and those I will miss. I have many pictures taken with this by myself as well as others from various trips and the most of pictures look like garbage.

These shoes are just amazing! The break in period is a bit painful and I often seem to crack my nails in them(maybe I should go half size up) but they perform extremely well. I was worried that they wouldn't smear very well because of the downturn in the toe but I believe they still smear quite well. My only gripe with them is that I had an air bubble or something in the rubber seam and already have a hole in the toe(I do not drag my toes up the wall.) Will be getting the same pair though!

It worked alright but I didn't feel like it would do the job. My rope is a 10.2 that did feed very well and would slip through the device(we let go to test it's autolocking feature) with heavier climbers(190+). Other ropes that would lock up were hard to pull through the device. It did lock the rope better than an atc though. I prefer either standard atc or grigri.

I had some ideas about how this little thing would work and at first I was a bit let down with it. I just opted to use my friends grigri or even a normal atc just because I was more comfortable with those items. It turns out after a little practice this thing works great, I now use it over the other belay tools because it works so well. Give it some time and you just might like it.
