I'm considering changing from helix to bandit 5 -

So look forward to hearing a few comments regarding the bandit 5 :-)

Have you used it ?
I have been using this QR for 4 years now. besides one QR that had a defect and was replaced all worked (and still are) excellent. easy release when needed and never unintentionally released.

Yes, i agree. I used to have a bandit 2 and found the velcro safety to be far easier to use than the more 'sophisticated' but ultimately more slippery system on my Slingshot.

More can be less

Yes I've used it. Have you ever unhooked? When I hook back in I like to grab my chicken loop and pull it towards me, what I don't want it a stupid post sticking off the side of the loop getting in my way. Hooked in I couldn't care less what my release is like, but unhooked I much prefer it to be out of the way and a push away release so there's no possibility of me pulling it by accident when I hook back in
