Bang for your buck

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These nylon slings are great, People often complain about them being too bulky but i personally don't notice it. Use them for equalizing anchors, a personal anchor system or an alpine quick draw. I purchased a bunch in the 60cm size for alpine draws and the size works great.

Burly runners

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I keep one of these (60cm/double)on my harness for pretty much any multipitch outing for use as a rappel extension and anchor point. Avoid shock loading such a setup, but nylon is much better than dyneema, as it is slightly less static. Tons and Tons of uses for these.

Inexpensive and awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have two of these slings, and I love them. They’re great for multiple purposes, and although they’re inexpensive they don’t show any wear/tear after taking them climbing several times. I’ll buy these again in the future.

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.

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.

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.


  • 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.

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.

Can never have enough

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.

Unanswered Question

Does the added width from the nylon affect smaller asymmetrical carabiners (like the petzl spirit) and cause them to cross load? I am a bit worried that they might flip my biners around.

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


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.

If she's really just getting into climbing, I'd grab a couple 30s and a 60 or two. That way you can find out what you need more of later without spending too much money on slings you might not use, and will get you by if she's mostly top-roping or sport climbing.

If she's getting pretty deep (is she trad climbing?) go all-out and grab as many 30s and 60s as you can stand to have tangled in your closet, and a couple 120s for anchor building. You'll want a boatload of caribiners too, which is where the wallet takes a real beating...

If you'd like to know more about selecting gear, REI offers some good advice on their page (I've provided a safe link below). See "Sewn Runners" about halfway down the page.

Happy trails!

Has anyone used this runner for repelling...

Has anyone used this runner for repelling when tying off to a tree? if so how did they hold up?

Best Answer

These work great for that. I usually use the 120cm, wrapped around a tree and then tied off with an overhand knot creating two loops for a locking biner. If you girth hitch it, make sure to keep the loop running straight through and not bending back across the sling.

The length listed, is it the usable length (i.e. half the length of the webbing if cut) or the full length (i.e. the circumference if layed out as a circle)?
