Good all around sling

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have quite a few of these and use them for extending gear placements, anchors, and for protection. They work well and are super durable. My only complaint is that in the smaller sizes, the length of the stitched section makes alpine draws and daisy chain racking a bit annoying. If using for extending gear, consider going with a dyneema sling. If using for protection or anchors... get em and climb.

If i buy five runners, will i get five different colors?

Hey,

On this generally our warehouse will send an assortment of colors. We're unfortunately not able to make specific color requests but when I've ordered 5+ runners, I've gotten one of each color every time.

Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

Great Little Runner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a few of the 30cm slings and love them. They are great. I personally have not used them climbing on a route but they are a good size to put all your gear on when storing in your pack!

Love them.

Great slings

Love these for setting up anchors. Great buy, and will probably pick up some more when these wear out.

excellent piece of gear!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

black diamond, in my opinion, makes the best gear out there.
these nylon runners are exceptionally cheap, very durable, and lightweight. i've owned a few of these and they have held up well over the years.

With this price, it's easy to have a whole bunch of these. From using them to longer anchors to leaving behind on alpine routes, these are a must have.

classic and cheap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

60cm slings make up the bulk of my trad rack. great for anchors as well. Don't mind leaving a few of these behind thanks to the price. Not the lightest but durable and cheap.

Awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A climber always needs more slings.

I always take an extra or two no matter what the grade or pitch, as it's an easy way to get yourself out of nearly ANY bind.

Never head up without 'em I always say.

Strong as hell, durable, cheap, and beyond useful for any level climbers rack.

Awesome!

Hey Sean,

This listing is not an assorted pack. The photo only shows the possible assorted colors you could receive.

When you order a quantity of one you only receive one runner.

Cheap, durable.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are cheap and work exactly as advertised, feel very sturdy and have not started to deteriorate after several long days of use. I also wouldn't feel bad if I had to leave some on the crag because of their price point. I bought several of the 60cm and 120cm, a good combination of lengths.

Can never have enough

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It doesn't matter how many of these runners I get, I always need more. Whether your building trad draws, need to take some rope drag out of a route, building anchors, these will be used. From beginner to expert climbers these are a basic piece of equipment that will come in handy. I have always been satisfied by these and will continue to buy them unless I ever choose to get ice climbing equipment, In which case I would go with dyneema runners. I would recommend having a variety of sizes to fit every need that may come at the crag.

Versatile, easy to use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have many of these slings in my gear closet. They come in handy for many uses: building belay anchors at the bottom of your climb, extending your protection, setting up anchors up top, extending your anchor up top or simply racking up all of your gear.

The fabric is really flexible and easy to manipulate so you can tie many different knots and have different set ups while relying on strength and durability.

Very soft, easy to use.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great sling but picks up dirt. Holds up great though.

Incredibly Versatile

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got a bunch of these to set up some alpine draws, and some extras for anchor building, rock slinging, etc.

The Good:
--Cheap, especially nice if you're in a situation where you might not get your gear back.
--Nylon, so you can throw a knot in them and not lose a ton of strength.
--Several different sizes for all your slinging needs (I got half 60 and half 120cm)
--Year of manufacture printed on the tag; no more screwing around with date codes!
--Nice and durable, even after scraping over granite, sandstone, and even a beach-front crag.
--Super handy for racking gear, too, and way cheaper than an actual gear sling.

The Bad:
--Assorted colors; Backcountry sent me a bunch of different colors of each size. I like color-coding things, so getting each size in one color would have been nice. Next time I'll remember to ask.
--The spot where the webbing is sewn into a loop is pretty chunky, and can make it tricky to get your sling legs equalized depending on how you're setting things up.

When these wear out (or they hit their five year mark) I'll more than likely get another set.

Great slings.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use a 60cm sling just for racking gear and occasionally for slinging into anchors. It's been great this past year. No frays whatsoever. Simple and effective

great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

not much to say than they are really cheap and extremely durable. not as ligthweight as the dynema, but works as fine
