Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, high quality product, good performance, very light. Recommended. This rack is somewhat unconventional in its design (2 steady bars and a "flopper") compared to what I'm used to, but I really enjoy using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Descender I ordered this because I saw a fireman exibition and this is what they used to rescue a guy from a building so I figured it must be pretty good.

It's hard to describe but it just feels very predictable.
