I like the tau double gate wire system. It feels as safe and secure as the other double gate biners. I’d trust it with my life. Only complaint is that it would be easier to actuate if both gates were spring loaded. Only the wire gate is. The solid gate is just a loose pivot. Sometimes makes it hard to actuate the wire gate without pushing the solid gate and engaging the lock. You can’t unlock the wire gate when pressure is on the solid gate.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 10

Bought this with the hope that it could take on hikes, rivers, and canyons. I tried it out for a week in Utah and was fairly satisfied. Hiking it lacked a bit of stability in the heel support and left raw skin in a couple places when barefoot but provided good support even with a heavy pack. On the river, it did very well but I wish it dried faster. I would not recommend it for technical canyoneering, as the elastic laces and poor heel support are not great for scrambling. I’ll probably replace the laces with paracord for more stability and fit. They’re better than sandals but not as good as wet approach shoes.
