The Premium kit has been upgraded in 2016 to provide a high-quality, streamlined set of gear that lets you climb in either single rope or doubled rope technique with the Hitch Hiker 2 hybrid device. This kit is specialized for SRT climbing; a Weaver Chest Box and custom tether keep you upright and tend the Hitch Hiker 2 during ascent, with the Camp Turbo Foot Ascender for a fluid ropewalker setup.

24-strand Velocity climb line from Samson is strong, lightweight, and feels nicely broken in right out of the bag. Also included are Petzl throw line/weights, an Edelrid cambiumsaver, and a Petzl Transport rope bag for hauling your rope and gear. This kit is available with either the Ergovation, treeMOTION, or Matt Cornell Rope Saddle, letting you customize the price & function.
