Great value. Save 10% (and still earn your dividend). Smooth action, easy placement.

What more can I say that anyone hasn't already said? Its light. WAY light. My rack is full of them, and I really couldn't see myself wanting to buy any other kind of wire gate.

I had just pulled myself over the lip of High-E in the Trapps as the sun finally slipped beneath the horizon. Now we were faced with 2 raps to the bottom in the post-dusk gloom of October in New York. This light was the best thing I could have with me.

The dual beam was perfect: the high setting when actually rapping down, the low-beam LEDs for setting up the new rap and gathering the gear.

I do suggest putting the alkaline batteries that come with the Gemini and putting in Lithium batteries; they are much lighter, last 2-3 times longer than alkaline, and are unaffected by cold.

The only downside to this light is getting it adjusted properly. It is a little difficult, and sometimes it takes a few tries to get it just right when switching wearing it between my helmet and my melon.

Overall, a must-have I feel.
