You will pay a lot for it but it is worth every penny. This harness is ridiculously light and surprisingly comfortable. The most revolutionary harness design I've seen.

I was more interested in "Avoiding the Touch" but ended up purchasing "Moving Faster" at the same time. I am very impressed! The information is presented in a clear, logical format. Avoiding the Touch is the best resource I've seen outside of a class for learning self-rescue skills. Whether you are a new climber trying to learn or a salty old dog looking to brush up on some skills, this is a great purchase.

These are the best slings made. I agree with what a few others have said- while the light weight is great, their biggest advantage is reducing the bulk of your draws. The only minor issue is they are a bit harder to untie than other slings if you have to tie an equalizing knot in them.

Inexpensive, light, comfortable, durable. What more can you ask for in a pack? My favorite technical pack so far.
