Rack for the lead with the Black Diamond Padded Gear Sling.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This gear sling is great, it's padded which makes it much more comfortable when it's loaded up with gear. The blue color is nice because it helps me pick it out in the mess of gear i generally have loaded in my pack. it's easily adjustable and i can fit my whole trad rack on it. I love it as much as you can love something as simple as a padded gear sling.
My Gear is all together finally!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Before I got this sling my gear was all over my bag. I had to dig around and find all of my pieces of gear that I needed for my climb. Now this this I can attach all of my quick draws and gear to this and have it all together in my bag. I love it!
At first it's a little stiff and sits weird on your shoulder but once it gets some use it's a perfect. Fair price for something so simple and I like it more than using one of my slings.
Not my fav
Sits funny on my shoulder and no matter how much I adjust and rearrange it it just doesn't feel right. Wish it had more loops it it would make it a lot easier to use. For the gym though it's good to just have shoes harness and chalk bag attached to.
I like to split my trad rack between my harness and this. Me and my partner both have them and swicth between pitches.
Pleased with the padding and is a nice change from just using a daisy chain thrown over my shoulder lol. It would be nice to have multiple loops, but it is very adequite for the job.
Comfortable & Substantial
Durable & lightweight. Easy to add & remove hardware. Adjustable size. Soft fleece padding is easy on a bare back.
