    Great organization

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I use these bad boys for organizing all my assorted gear for trad and sport climbing. Makes it easy to find everything you need when you're getting ready for a 45 foot sport climb or 300 foot multipitch.

    Great organization

    simple solid daisy

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    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 solid daisy

    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.

        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.

        Hammock Straps

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

          I know you probably didn't wait a year, but the problem is the double bar tack in between loops on the daisy is rated much lower than the Nylon itself. Clipping across a bar tack, if it fails, can cause the carabiner to come completely unattached which could be fatal in climbing or painful for hammocks.

          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.

              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.

              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!

                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.

                  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?

                  is not too good like other?

                  Best Answer

                  Dinex is newer than nylon, twice the price and you actually shave around 30 grams, i don't think you'll notice the difference unless you carry a lot of equipment. I use this as a personal anchor, just remember not to clip more than one loop! (http://www.bdel.com/videos/daisy.html)

                  how does a daisy chain work ?

                  how does a daisy chain work ?

                  Best Answer

                  The idea behind a daisy chain is that when you get to an anchor (for multi-pitching or cleaning a toprope) you can clip directly in to the bolts at an adjustable length. This will vary based on your belay stance, the setup of the anchor, the freedom of movement you need, whether there are other people there or not, etc. The important thing to remember is that when shortening a daisy chain, clip only to the loop closer to your harness, not to both that and the end. Any serious climber should have a daisy chain (or 2) and these are a great option. If you feel like forking out some extra cash, the Dynex version is just as strong, but smaller and lighter. And better looking. Your call.**Though some free climbers do use daisy chains for the above mentioned purpose, they are really meant to be used in aid climbing for a leader to hang from the topmost anchor placement while placing the next peice. As mentioned above it is real important to remeber not to clip into one of the tacked loops and the end loop (if the tacks pull your biner will fall right out). If this doesn't quite make sense it's suggested that you take a regular sling or loop of something and use masking tape to simulate bar tacks in a daisy chain. Clip in like you would in the real daisy chain and pull to make sure that (in the event of a failure) you would still be clipped in.
