Description

Never leave home with it.

Mammut works hard each year to make its Dyneema Contact Sling lighter without taking away any of its strength. Like most slings, Mammut made it out of super strong and light Dyneema, but unlike most slings, Mammut's Contact stitching technique ensures optimum handling and strength throughout the sling, even in the seam area. This makes it ready to please you whether you're sending sandstone, climbing crack, cranking ice, or alpine climbing your way to the top.

Contact high

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are my favorite dyneema runners. You might ask what the difference is between this particular runner and bd or metolius runners.

Well, first of all, it's color-coded. Blue=120cm or double-shoulder, and red=60cm shoulder sling. That alone sets it apart as a cut above the rest. Actually I don't like the word 'cut' when I'm talking about slings. This sling is the valedictorian of the graduating class of Dyneema sling university (and head of the debate team.)

What really gets me hot for these slings is the stitching. It's very, very low profile and Mammut was clever enough to cover the stitching with a slick, aerodynamic sheath. The otherwise great BD slings have a little hangnail where the stitching ends that sometimes gums up the works.

What does this mean to you, loyal consumer? If you have hang-ups with tangled alpine draws, the streamlined stitching drastically reduces the amount of time you spend clinging to a postage stamp-sized lump of granite with one hand while you flick your tangled mess of a draw around like a bullwhip. Easy, effortless extension every time.

This may be pseudosciece, but because the colored portion (nylon-dyneema is always white) is at the outer edges of the sling, it might be a little safer to tie knots in these sexy, thin slings. Tying knots in dyneema of course means yergonnadie, but at least you can do it with a little more confidence.

I rack up with 60cm and 120cm slings clipped with black diamond carabiners from deconstructed freewire quickdraws, and I enjoy the hell out of them.

If you use rubber bands to hold your rope-end biner, educate yourself on the hazards of this practice and climb safe.

Extend and send.

Great Sling Option

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bulk of my rack consists of 60cm, I also have a few 30cm, 120cm, and even a 240cm. I use them for everything from making anchors, slinging rocks, and using at tethers. As a draw they are perfect. Light and they dont have any stitching or material that will catch holding the carabiner or something in an awkward way. Plus they look real good hanging across your shoulder.

Great for Wandering Routes and Roofs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've got a few of the 120cm blue slings. These slings have been absolutely clutch when on routes that wander and I've needed to take some rope drag out.

They're super durable and help keep some peace of mind while I'm clinging to the wall.

I'm a big fan of the single color per size. It's great knowing which slings are which length by the color coding. Makes for quick and effortless gear finding on my rack.

One of the nicest features is the seam where the two ends are overlapped and sewn together are covered with a sleeve so there is no catching when a biner is sliding over them.

Over all, a bunch of these are must haves. I'll be ordering a half dozen red 60 cm's soon!

Mammut does it well

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Mammut gear is usually top-notch, and these slings are no exception. These slings are exactly what you'd expect them to be, lightweight, functional, and can be used for multiple purposes and styles of climbing. The contact stitching keeps the gear clean, making it so nothing could ever catch on the sling in an awkward way, and the multiple sizes available in different colors makes it easy to identify them on your rack. Definitely a solid sling to add to your set up.
