Sorry, don't remember what specifically it was. I just remember that it was not what I was used to from rock climbing equipment. This was 10 years ago and I only looked at it at some boat show or something. And given that this was actually MORE expensive than (what I considered) proper gear, it was a no-brainer to go to REI instead...
