New and Notable: CAMP Stratos - 2010 Gear Guide
  1. DEEP BREATHING You might have to catch your breath after that 40-foot whipper, but the Stratos will have been breathing all along, thanks to the expanses of dual-density perforated foam between the load-bearing edges of the waist and leg loops.

  2. STRUCK BY LIGHTENING Despite coming in at a featherweight 12.3 ounces, the Stratos is fully featured, which includes four webbing-reinforced gear loops and fully adjustable leg loops. The buckles on those leg loops (and the waistbelt, too) are smooth-sliding, pre-threaded, auto-adjust buckles.

  3. KEEP IT STRAIGHT The Stratos features CAMP’s inventive No Twist belay loop, which has a reinforced slot opening between two burly belay loop layers. Pass your belay biner through the slot and it’ll stay put, making free-floating, crossloaded belay biners a thing of the past.
