The Black Diamond Dynex 10mm Sewn Runner—low on weight, low on bulk.

Black Diamond's Dynex 10mm Sewn Runners weigh 30% less than nylon runners to save weight on your rack for both summer and winter climbing. In addition to a low weight, Dynex runners also have less bulk, so they don't take up as much space on your rack, in your pack, and over your shoulder. They also absorb less water than nylon and don't freeze—obvious benefits for ice and alpine climbing. You need runners for just about every climb, so get some ultralight ones from Black Diamond.

Freaking Love these slings!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The BEST slings for going light in the mountains (second only to CAMP and Mammut's 8 mm lines), strong, light, and easily to use these suckers are bomber for trad and alpine climbing. Rack em' over the shoulder or as an alpine draw and they do not disappoint. Just amazing gear form BD.

This route is free soloed often by salt lake city locals. However I figured since it was my friends first rock climb, he should rope up. Runners were vital to the success of this climb.

Routes wander, will your rope drag?

Little things are more frustrating to a trad leader than bad rope drag impeding vertical progress. This can be avoided by equipping your alpine draws with these runners. Most of mine are 60 cm runners, but I do have longer ones for certain situations. If you are new to trad, leave the quick draws at the sport crag. These not only cut down on rope drag but also help your protection from shifting or walking. These are a must for those intent on adventure.

You need this.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Everyone needs a few of this in their rack. Great for clipping around chandelier ice, building anchors, and holding stuff. If you're building a rack, just get em.

love the little guys

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using the 30cm length to clip to my cams forever and I love it. I rack my cams like normal then I clip a single biner to one 30CM sling and rack all those on my harness. after I place a cam I clip the sling to the cam biner and clip the rope to the biner used to rack the sling. Viola! I have extended the clip in point on the cam and not wasted any biners. And the whole system is lighter and better than using quckdraws

Love how the double length racks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things for some reason just seem to rack better as an alpine draw than any other sling I have used. I like the Sterling slings as well, but these are just trimmer and rack better taking up less room.

Must have!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is one of my go to sling I use it as a long draw on sport routes and eventually I will use it as a long draw on trad routes. (When I get there.) Super lightweight and can be used for all variety of things.
The only flaw is the part where the draw is sown together is bulky. but it still makes a perfect long draw!

Good solid bit of kit.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It took my a while to really get into using these as they are so thin, I just didn't trust them.... Once I got over that, super happy with them have replaced all my older heavier tapes with nice thin light ones.

Great sling, trusty brand!

Absolutely great, everything you'd want. I use mine when rappelling from setting up a top rope anchor. the 30cm was a little short, wish I had gone a size up. can't go wrong with black diamond!

Simple and reliable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are no frills slings that will do anything you ask of them. Skinny enough to stay out of the way and pretty light.

Excellent for alpine draws!!

The best runners on the market!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

And at a great price too! I recently went through a revolution where I attempted to make my rack as light as possible and less bulky. I began rigging all of my trad draws with these instead of some of their more hefty cousins. These work fantastic! They are nice and thin which makes them easy to extend one handed. Also, because they are thin, they do not fill up half of the biner when they are doubled or tripled. You couldn't ask for more in a sewn runner!

Measured length and weight of 60cm

60cm model: usable length = 58.5cm ; weight 19.6g = .69oz. This length or longer are great for alpine draws, substantially lighter then other brands.

Great runner, here's the size guide

These are awesome. They are lightweight, strong, etc. Pretty much, they're exactly as advertised. Just hoping to help someone avoid my mistake...

30cm == 12", i.e. PROBABLY NOT WHAT YOU WANT.

If you're trying to order your standard, "shoulder length runner", you want the 60cm size. I just naturally figured the smallest size would be shoulder length, then it would go up from there. Well, 30cm means ~12 inches, which is measured end to end, after it's already sewn together.

99% of people ordering will probably not make this mistake, but in the off chance you find yourself unsure, 60cm means shoulder length, 120cm means a "double", and 240 means BIG.

Please note, I'm giving 5 stars, I used my previous set for about 3 years before retiring them (didn't purchase from backcountry), and they worked great. When I went to order new ones, I just assumed the smallest size would be shoulder length, but they're actually not. Not sure what you'd use that size for, since, in that size, we're talking sport climbing quickdraw, where I'd prefer beefy, thick nylon. But I'm not the authority. Anyway, my mistake, not BD's or Backcountry's, but, there ya go...60cm means shoulder.

Other than that, order away.

Satisfied

A couple yellow-ish bordered and brown bordered slings just arrived in the mail. Light, strong, un-obtrusive.
