When it comes to choosing quickdraws, consumers will consider factors such as: price, weight, and style. Typically the more expensive quickdraw are also very lightweight, and the more inexpensive ones are heavier. With the Camp Photon Express quickdraw, you get a very lightweight draw, at a very reasonable price. This draw comes in several styles. This particular one has two solid gates, the rope side being a bent gate, which I personally enjoy clipping over a wire gate. I like to hear the very prominent "click" that you get with a solid gate carabiner. The carabiners are bigger than others, but again, very light weight. The dogbone is pretty thick, which I think is useful for working projects when you have to grab a draw or pull up on it while hangdogging. Overall, this is a great quickdraw, I couldn't imagine needing or wanting any other kind of quickdraw.

I haven't worn Evolv climbing shoes in a few years. The last pair I owned prior to the Agro, was the original Shaman. Based on what I read, I needed to go up a half size in Evolv since they started making these new lines. I wore a 9 in the original Shaman, and I wear a 9.5 in the Agro. The Shaman worked for me well, and I remember it being a pretty stiff shoe. So going into purchasing these, I expected a pretty stiff shoe. When I tried them on, they felt very stiff, as expected. I took them to the gym, and did a long, steep boulder problem, and they became immediately more flexible and felt immediately more broken in. As soon as I got done, I loved how they felt. I climbed with them all night, and I was highly impressed. The rubber felt super sticky, the amount of toe hook rubber was super useful at times, the sensitivity felt great, the fit was great, and the feel of the inside of the shoe against my foot was very soft and smooth feeling. Some shoes you can feel the stitching on the inside, but not with these. I usually wear Scarpa Instinct VS for sport climbing and a lot of bouldering, and I wear La Sportiva Solutions for select boulders and sport routes. I think I will use the Agro almost exclusively for both bouldering and hard sport routes. Great job Evolv!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great for trad climbing. Easier to rack up than an alpine draw. With 3 different lengths you can get exactly what you need. Can be used in sport climbing to eliminate rope drag, just use them carefully, every inch counts during a fall.
