Hi antiqued,

Many thanks for your feedback, but I'm afraid you're mis-understanding the interface. The slots for 5 carabiners are actually for 5 different models of carabiners. There already is a quantity option. First, you select the item to place in your pack, and then, once it's in your pack, you can adjust its quantity. So, in the Climbing checklist, you can add 5 x 10 carabiners, for a total of 50 -- and that's just non-locking. You can then add an additional 50 locking carabiners.

Yes, we're aware that we're still missing a lot of gear in the database. We just released this test version 3 days ago, so we just started with 6000 items for testing. We just want to make sure all the functionality is working, more than anything, at this point. We have an additional 15000 items (yes, 15000) already in the database, but still needing their weights entered. Our staff is still adding (and will continue to add) up to 100 new pieces per day. Plus, this is also a user-contributed site. Yesterday, alone, members added over 100 new pieces of gear (across all activities).

Regarding the search you suggest, again, I'm afraid you didn't dive into the app far enough. Each item slot has its own search for all items (with weight values) within that category. By simply clicking on an empty slot, the app generates a list of all related items for that slot. To narrow the list, simply start typing any part of the item name, and it will be found. If I misunderstood you, and you were suggesting something different, please clarify -- we really want to continually improve this.

I hope this addresses your concerns.
