Reviewed by biojkh from Atlanta, GA on Saturday, September 24, 2016I have had mine for nearly 2 decades and have also loved it immensely. Carried it on Capitol Hill do make a plea for more money for scientific research and back and forth everyday to my lab and office. Will proudly hand it over once I'm done with it, but its been great and at the time one of the few more distinctive book bags or briefcases around. Mine was over $500, so I can hardly believe it is just under $200.00 now. What a steal.
Reviewed by William from New York on Tuesday, August 9, 2016I have had this case for over 20 years and traveled the world with it. It gets better looking every day and I have had many compliments on it.
Reviewed by Odin Thorfather from Bulgaria, Europe on Wednesday, March 4, 2015I own my device for about a year. I own Petzl Verso and Petzl Reverso 4 and can make comparison with them. I find it perfect for the money I paid for it. Easy to work with - change the friction mode with just one motion. Great grip with the grooves/notches - even on soft/thin rope. The "normal" (minus) mode is a little bit fast on rappels on soft and thin ropes, but allows faster rappels. The holes on the sides helps for the better ventilation - the device does not generate much heat, but unfortunately I cannot compare the heat production with other devices. When rappelling this device stops better than tubular devices with V grooves on one side only - as those matching the Petzl Verso and Reverso 4 devices on my ropes. On the other hand it has larger rope slots that allow thicker ropes through it unlike the latter. I have rappelled on ropes 6 and 7 mm with the groves-side (plus mode), but I aided the friction with 2 connecting carabiners or accessory carabiner through which I let the brake side of the rope.
I have 2 things to say against the device: 1. the cable is according to me too long - I find it a little clumsy with it and like better devices with shorter ones - here come the Petzl belay/rappel devices; 2. I dislike the paint on the device - I would prefer it anodized or just polished - the paint remained on the rope in the beginning and after a while it was removed by the friction on one side and on the other the connecting carabiner made indents on the painting on the other than the friction side which finally cracked the paint and it deteriorated.
