Escape descenders-special need Q

1st post here, hello to all !

I'm not a rock climber, but a bowhunter trying to better my equip. Thought I'd join up here to get some tried and true answers regarding descenders.

I'm in a full body harness, but need a controlled descent solution for about 30ft. My personal needs: has to work if unconcious, lightweight, tangleprooof, idiot proof, ease of use in darkness. I'm 6ft, 200#, 54years. If I fall, I just want to get to ground safely within a few minutes.
This was suggested and looks good, but all thoughts appreciated.

I have never used this type of equipment.
Again, regards to all, and thanks ahead of time.
