BTW MFS was awesome last week!
What rescue rope do you keep around your waist? I am a fan of the Astral bags that go right in the chest of the Green Jacket, but I am not familiar with a 50ft or longer bag that goes around your waist. I would like to check this piece of equipment out.... granted, I don't run class V, but I do keep a couple prusiks a sling and 5 carabiners on my person. I just don't like the way any throw bags I have seen fit on the body..... not trying to make the topic personal, your first statement just made it sound like you didn't believe additional floatation was necessary. Glad you enjoyed your MFS trip. I would love to get on that stretch one day.
