Black Diamond Equipment ATC-XP Belay Device ($19.95)
If you're venturing into outdoor climbing, a quality belay device is essential to ensuring the rope feeds through smoothly, but brakes effectively in case of a fall. New construction on the ATC-XP is 30 percent lighter without sacrificing durability and versatility. Its high-friction mode also offers three times greater hold and stopping power.
Our reviewer said: "The high-friction teeth made it really good for braking, otherwise, the rope fed through very smoothly. It was very lightweight, which is always a plus."
