I had the Kleins with Caddies, and always thought they were great.
Last year I bought a pair of Geckos and nothing compares!!

Super lightweight and far more comfortable than even the Caddies.

If your considering an upgrade you wont be disappointed!!

I wonder who will be the first TreeHouser to get some carbon fiber geckos? I hope it's ME. :)

Bashlin Alcoas, with caddie pads. Been climbing in those for 15 years or so. I started out with steel Buckinghams.

I am pretty sure I'll be sporting a set of CF Geckos in a month or so, and I'll order them with the American style tree gaffs. The race is on, Butch!

I dont really see the hype in the carbon fibers. Standard alum. Geckos only weigh 4.3 pounds per pair. How much lighter can they be?
