Petzl Grigri + Belay Device Petzl Grigri + Belay Device
The engineers over at Petzl must never be satisfied, because although the Grigri is already a best-seller and perhaps the most popular assisted braking belay device on the market, the Grigri + Belay Device offers a smoother, safer performance than its predecessors. Petzl promises your rope--as long as it isn't skinnier than 8. 9mm--will slide through the device so smoothly that you won't have to place your thumb over the brake in order to dish out a lot of slack, meaning you can belay with this device in the same way that you would a standard tube device. Petzl integrated an anti-panic locking system that will lock the Grigi + up when overzealous beginners--or advanced climbers for that matter--pull down on the brake's handle too hard. The most unique feature has to be a new switch on the side that allows to you switch from top rope belaying to lead belaying. In lead belay, the Grigri + works very similarly to the previous Grigri models. In top rope belay, this device stiffens the brake so it bites the rope better when your climber is taking. This switch also lets you lock the brake completely for hand-off convenience when you're cleaning gear on a multi-pitch.

Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device
Petzl took the most-used assisted-braking belay device on the planet, made it 25% smaller and 20% lighter, gave it a wider functional range, and called it the Grigri 2. Unlike the previous model, the Grigri 2 works on ropes clear down to 8. 9mm because, let's face it, we've all used the last model well outside its recommended specs. In addition, the new release system uses a graduated cam, which gives you better control while lowering your climber. Since Petzl knows that you'll be using this belay device for a decade or more, it made the cam out of burly stainless steel for a seriously long life.

Petzl RAD System Petzl RAD System
Petzl's RAD System has the rappel cord, locking carabiners, sling, and ascenders that backcountry skiers and mountaineers need for crevasse rescues, rappels, and glacier rope-ups. Its 30m Rad Line hyperstatic cord has a superlight, super-skinny 6mm diameter designed specifically for ski mountaineering. The Attache carabiner has a compact design, and Petzl includes three of these screw lockers for secure safety. There are two ascenders, one chrome-plated Tibloc ascender for use as a progress capture, and Petzl's versatile Micro Traxion. The ultralight Micro Traxion is a capture pulley with sealed ball bearings and locks that double as a standard pulley for big wall climbing and solo top roping. Petzl also included its lightest sling called the Fin'Anneau, and a storage bag with webbing loops for harness attachment and holders for ice screws. It's surprisingly convenient that all this gear stores compactly in the bag, and that the bag can compactly fit at the bottom of any ski backpack. This system should be a requirement for any mountaineer on mountains like Rainier, Hood, or Denali, but any backcountry skier can find convenience with Petzl's RAD System, especially if your partner gets stuck under a tree.
