This kit includes the Armaid essentials that are recommended for rock climbers. It comes without the extra gadgets, so it is lighter on your wallet. It is almost half the price of the Armaid Complete. It includes the armaid, a big orange ball attachment, DVD and handle fastner. It does not include small ball attachments or a strap to secure the device to the thigh. The strap is not necessary and rarely used and the orange ball is the main attachment that is recommended for rock climbers.
