Freakishly light and cheap enough to leave behind. I also double up, but two of these still weigh substantially less than a steel ring. I always carry enough of these to keep from rapping on just a sling. I would not recommend these for TR, the aluminum will wear too quickly.

This is a good Descending Ring but I always use 2 when putting these up, ive recently started using stainless steel fix descending rings, they seem more trustworthy and i feel i only need one

For rappels these work great. The rope runs through these to prevent the rope from burning the sling. I use 2 or back it up with a sling, just in case. These are so light they are scary!
