This handy device is everywhere in Spain, and for good reason too. The crags might be bolted, but sometimes they aren't in ideal locations, especially if you're on the shorter side. The bolter may have been able to reach the clip from a comfier stance, but someone shorter will have to do the hard moves before clipping. This sturdy, ridged draw lets you reach those clips before committing to cruxy moves. The carabiner is especially sweet; the lock that keeps the gate open is easy to open and easier to lock from afar.
Can the dogbone be folded so that you can clip the 2 ends together for carrying on your harness so it doesn't hang super low? Or does the rigid webbing prevent that?
Based off their Tech Spec Review for this item (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-TpFGCuuoU), it does appear that the "rigid" dog bone is due to a wire that holds its shape when bent, but is also flexible enough for the two ends to be clipped together.
