simple solid daisy

first daisy chain was this nylon BD daisy. they do a good job, they match any color of aider out there, and the 140cm is plenty long. as any daisy it should be respected and not used for anything other then for AID climbing. I use it on every big wall and it does its job.

Simple, Straightforward

It does the job. I've used BD daisy chains for years, and I have never had an issue with them. I will continue to use them because they are so easy to use, and because I trust the quality. Easy to clip, and pretty colors (yes, quite noteworthy). Hands down essential for climbing- would definitely recommend!

Bad customer service

They have the "customer notes" in their shipping, yet they never read it, they just don t care. I ordered a specific color for a reason. I am dissapointed.

Hey Javier, I'm sorry for the disappointment. The colors are shipped to us randomly and we ship them randomly. Feel free to email me, I might be able to get you the right color. ccostley@backcountry.com

ive had no issues with this daisy chain for almost 3 years now with lots of use in all the seasons. i switched to a metolius chain this summer because its safer a lot quicker and you dont need to use 2 biners shorten it. id watch the video black diamond had to make about this product because of its glitch(if i can call it a glitch) before buying it.

Responded on

You don't need to use two carabiners to shorten a traditional daisy chain like this. Just clip the carabiner straight to the intermediate loop, not the end.

Responded on

you need to watch the black diamond vid on this chain. yes you can shorten it with one biner but it is not safe at all.

Hammock Straps

I love using daisy chains for hammock straps too! Just do be very careful!

Responded on

Could you expand on why you need to be careful? I'm looking to use them for hammock straps also and would like to know more about how you do it.

Perfect for aid climbing

Used this in Washington Column in Yosemite and it worked well. This is for aid climbing, you shouldn't use it for anchors, or PAS. If you don't know what you are doing, this can fail.

Read me!

Great for aid climbing and self anchor if you know how to use it! If this is your first time buying a personal anchor system then I would consider using something else becuase if you use this one the wrong way, It could result in death.

If I'm going to buy two for my ascenders,...

If I'm going to buy two for my ascenders, should I get two different lengths to stagger them or just get two of the same size?

Responded on

That really depends on what kind of setup you plan on using when ascending with your ascenders. The most common way would work best with two different lengths.

Responded on

I would recommend 2 different lengths almost all the time and they can come in handy for other things and variety always helps.

Solid But...

The daisy chain was not intended to be a personal anchor system for cleaning sport anchors. They were intended to be used for aid climbing. It still works for cleaning sport gear but I would instead recommend the PAS from Metolious. The PAS offers more flexibility in length that the daisy doesn't do safely. For easy of cleaning and peace of mind the PAS is more solid.

Does what it's meant to!

These are great for aiding and organizing, just note that these are NOT necessarily load bearing. EDIT: The individual loops are, as Duncan said, rated to only 2 kN, while the ends are rated to 22 kN. Just be careful with these; I've seen a lot of people use them as a PAS, which is safe when done right, but 1 in 1000 times can get you in trouble.

Responded on

This is not true. The individual loops are only rated to 2 kN each but the daisy as a whole is a full strength nylon sling rated to, I believe, 22 kN. But yes, be very careful with the individual loops.

Pretty Awesome

I just got this as my first daisy chain and couldn't be happier. Although it is not as lightweight as the dynex version it is still pretty light and i hardly notice the weight difference in my pack. I really like how one end of the chain has a half twist on it that makes it really easy to girth hitch to your harness for cleaning routes without any annoying twists to get in your way. This is a great multipurpose item, you can use it for anything from clipping into anchors to hanging your hammock, it even makes an excellent impromptu dog leash if you through a biner on the end. Definitely a good piece of gear to have around!

It is for aid climbing

Great, but...

Great, simple piece of gear...just make sure you know what you're doing with it.

Blue, Red, Green, Silver, Purple, Yellow.

But Diana, here's the thing: colors are assorted and ship at random- you can't select which one will actually ship.

solid piece

These are nice daisy chains. They are not all that bulky or heavy and nylon has a little more give than dyneema. I have one of each and I typically go for the dyneema mostly because it takes up less space on my harness.
