U G L Y, you ain't got no alibi... 3 out of 5 stars

This harness is ugly, but it is also comfortable and light. It makes a great gym harness. That's all I use it for. I got it for free. Otherwise I would never use it. The color is far too obnoxious.

Great device. Great manufacturer. Catches your big whip and then lowers you like a champ.

Great to borrow... 4 out of 5 stars

...tough to buy. This device works great. The only problem with it is the price. Now that the Gri Gri 2 is here, however, that price is a big hurdle to jump over.

Nice colors, but too small. 2 out of 5 stars

I like the Nano form Camp, but this biner is too small for me. Makes a nice shoe/bail biner though.

Took a while, but I like it. 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: forkliftdaddy, 2009-11-04


I expected these to fit and perform like the Baracudas I liked when i bought my Vipers. They didn't. I didn't like the fit and they were a battle to get on. Eventually, however, they molded to my feet and I got used to getting them on. Now I really like these shoes for gym bouldering. They fit well enough to use small feet and heel hook pretty dang well for a slipper. The cushion in the heel is nice as well. Good shoe, but it took me a while to be convinced.
