The Camalots are definitely the best cams that I own. Wider range than the metolius and rock empire cams. More stable as well. The new C4's are much lighter and easier to handle than the old style camalots. 2 Gripes: They have a very wide profile in the smaller sizes which means they probally will not fit where a smaller alien would. The other complaint is the overlap between sizes 2 & 3. I carry a #4 rock empire on my rack due to this deficiency.

It is amazing how much stuff you can cram into this pack! Usually I stuff a rope,full rack, lot's of webbing in case I feel like TR, harness, shoes, and I even have room for lunch in a separate compartment. (It has 2 small zippered pouches in addition to the main compartment). What is truly unique about this pack is the way the main compartment opens up to give you easy access to all of your gear. Externally there are two strings of small sewn loops which you can hang gear off of as well. My only complaint's are that the shoulder straps are a little thin and some of the buckles are somewhat cheezy. Overall, this pack works out very well for me!
