4 out of 5 stars Awesome for the newbie trad leader!!

I had just started placing gear and this thing protects perfectly! There is one placement that I really had to think about at the "Dragon's tail," but the feet are perfect for gear at every spot. It's tall enough to make you feel it, but easy enough to place comfortably. Great for new leaders.
