This is one of the few gear slings to have an insulated pouch for a hydration system. This is handy if you don't mind using a very small hydration bladder (you have to provide your own). Otherwise, it is a handy pouch and does not add much weight. The gear sling is solid and comfy. It is burlier than the Black Diamond Zodiac but not as burly as the Fish Double Gear Sling or Yates Big Wall Rack.
Also, it has only one gear loop on each side so it is better for Grade V clean aid routes and not ideal for Grade VI nail-ups. The clip on the front is easy to get on and off and both the sternum strap and the length of the gear loops are fully adjustable. There is also a multi loop version of this gear sling but we would never take the multi-loop version on a big wall or any climb.
