Review 5 out of 5 stars

Even at hanging belays, this ledge is easy to set up. The open corners allow the sidebars to drop into place with no problems. The spreader bar is the "hardest" part, but even this is relatively simple, especially if you are used to thrashing with the ledges of old. I have found that doing the spreader first then doing the side bars, makes the thing drop into place in 2 minutes.

The only bummer is the way that the webbing used to secure the fly under the ledge is just these two really long pieces of webbing. It could be quite difficult to get these guys together in the event that a sprinkle turns into a howler.

The big triangle shaped vinyl piece near the clip-in loop keeps the suspension from tangling into a freaking mess, and the webbing on the outside of the fly sack means you can crank it and stuff it down in the ledge bag, saving a bunch of room in your haulbag.

To start out, It's a pain to set that spreader bar at a hanging belay. But since I haul my ledge flagged, thats not an issue. Comfy, roomy, with FOUR bed tensioners on each side (it realy does make a difference) this ledge makes me happy. the rainfly is wicked too, with being able to deploy it in under 30 seconds and all.
