Review 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: omenbringer, 2004-09-23

These are a couple bucks cheaper than the Petzl's yet comparable in design. The padding is a little beefier than the Petzl's yet doesn't impede use with thick gloves. Overall the DMM's are a little larger than the Petzl though about the same weight. The cam can easily be operated with one hand. The major difference between the two brands is the lack of a cam cutout on the DMM's which Petzl says helps their ascenders shed mud and ice off of ropes. The DMM's are probably best suited to a climber who has big hands or wears thick gloves.
