Light, cheap and good wiregates... nice for racking things if you want something cheaper and bigger than those mini-lightweights. Oh and did i mention they were REALLY cheap.. 4.75 a piece (even cheaper when bought in bulk from gearexpress.com)

A great pad. I love the texture on it. Great for cleaning your shoes. I also like the pocket and the flap that keeps all your gear from falling out. My only problem with it is the straps could be better. Pushes the pad against your head when you are riding your bike.

I love these things... I did some climbing with a friend (coldclimb) one weekend and after using his little yellow alien I went out and bought one for myself. Planning on buying the green and blue ones as well. They are just awesome.

Great for the money, but I hate the triggers on them. They aren't all that smooth and it seems I have to use 1 finger to operate them. A friend of mine has them and I don't really like them, but as said before, for the price and for a beginner I guess they are worth it.
