Description

Shave weight and bulk from your rack with the Mammut Tubular Dyneema 8mm Contact Slings.

Mammut Tubular Dyneema 8mm Contact Slings are the ultimate slings for super-light alpine climbing or simply shaving ounces off your rack. What makes them so special? They weigh next to nothing, don't absorb water, don't freeze, and are more abrasion-resistant than nylon. Use the 60cm length for over-the-shoulder slings, the 120cm length for tying off horns and chockstones, and the 180cm length for an ultralight cordelette.

Gets the Job Done

They aren't the prettiest to look at color-wise but they sure are tough for such little fabric. Definitely recommend them.

Awesome

This is a greAt piece of gear. Strong, light weight, and very versatile. If your building a rack nylon is cheaper and will last longer if your on a budget. Price is the only reason I gave it 4 stars

low profile, and light weight. love how they blended the ends toghter for a very smooth no catch seam.

hey these Mammut Dyneema slings the 8mm 240cm ones are fine to use in an anchor system for top roping they just seem so thin?

Best Answer Responded on

You could use them...but for the price/durability ratio...I would go for something a little more burly. Or just use cordelette, which is much easier to equalize than these slings.

Has anyone tried Dyneema slings as prusiks?...

Has anyone tried Dyneema slings as prusiks? (Maybe using a Bachmann knot since the material is so thin.) Just curious as to how they'd work...

Responded on

I've prusiked with a 10mm BD Dynex sling and it locks down really tightly on the rope, although it doesn't slide as well as cordelette if you're moving it up the rope.

Responded on

I wouldn't recommend using Dyneema (or Spectra) slings as a prusik except for in an emergency situation. They have a much lower melting point than nylon and have a dangerously low breaking point if used in a setup without an element with the ability to dynamically absorb an impact. Also, knots drastically reduce the strength of Dyneema slings, an overhand knot reduces it by around 50%. I don't know how much a prusik reduces the strength but I would use the classic 6mm cord. That said, all of my alpine draws are Mammut slings and I trust my life on them in that situation.

V-II is different from original

I ordered this sling back in 2010 and just now in Sep-2011 -- the new version (marked as "II") is much thicker, less pliable and is no longer made in Switzerland (now it's made in Hungary). I still like it but the original was much more supple, pliable and nicer quality overall.

Light without sacrifice

As every review has said these are very light & easy to use but what really impressed me is the durability. I've used them all year and they aren't showing any wear. Mammut nailed it on these.

perfect for... everything

Cost a little more than nylon, but the weight saving is great and they're bomber! I can set anchors quickly and reliably with these with no fear. They're solid, light, reliable and convenient. I'd buy them again and again.

I love These Slings!

I use these for climbing, canyoneering, and rope ascending and the work great! They are so much smaller and lighter than the old nylon slings. They cost a little bit more, but it's worth it! I would recommend these to everyone!

Best Dyneema Slings

This slings are super light like most other dyneema slings on the market. But what I really like about them is how they have colored coded the different sizes unlike other manufacturer who have assorted colors for every size. I especially like how they make the orange 240cm sling which can be used as a super light cordelette for three piece anchors. Its also long enough to equalize two pieces of snow protection for crevasse rescue.

My favorite dineema runner

The BD runners are a close second, but these are so well made and you can have total confidence in them. Light, strong, great.

They are slick...

they are cheap , they are strong and they last almost forever. How do you go wrong?

Fast route to the slab

These dyneema slings are amazing - super light, amazingly strong. An essential part of a trad climber's rack. Add some quicklinks and you're ready to climb. Also great to use as for safety lines while you're setting up.

Probably a stupid question, but here goes....

Probably a stupid question, but here goes. Is the length given the length if you cut the loop and laid it out? or..

Best Answer Responded on

That's a good question! Slings are measured end to end. So the 60cm sling would be 60cm end to end and have a 120cm circumference.

What's not to Love other than Price

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Basicly I can't have enough of these babies. They work great are easy to use and are not bulky and are a regular part of of my trad gear.

Anyone know if the 240cm is long enough...

Posted on

Anyone know if the 240cm is long enough to use for three-piece gear anchors?

Responded on

Yes, definitely- really what they are made for.

For me the 240 has been plenty to rig a 3 piece anchor in most situations.

Best Answer Responded on

Here's one here. I also used a double to sling a tree as one of the pieces though, so sometimes the 240 isn't quite enough

They're popular for a reason!

Oh how I love these slings! I use them exclusively and have actually taken the biners from old draws to created lighter draws. Notice how quickly they sell out? You might want to pick a few up.
