Carry many

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Always better to have more than not enough. Various lengths and your ready for anything. Although I have't found a use for the 10 inch yet. Great product though.

Nice for going in direct

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Like everybody says, these are particularly great for clipping into anchors. Softer, less jolty feel than dyneema runners makes cleaning/multi-pitch belaying a bit less nerve-racking. I did get a little burn on one when a rope ran against it, so I worry a bit about longevity. But they're nice for now.

good sling

picked up a double length the other day since BD was out of stock. the metolious sling is just as high quality. pick one up!

I think these are pretty decent but I feel that BD nylon slings handle a little better.

Pretty cool...

The slings do what they need to do but my only complaint is the cost... A guy can buy webbing, tie a water knot, and blam!

The difference in cost is AMAZING!

But... that being said, Metolius is a great company and I am proud to say I own a couple of these that have been helpful and durable. That's all a climber can ask for!

Sweet Slings!

If you are looking for a solid nylon runner the Metolius 18mm Open Nylon Sling is always a good choice. I have about a dozen in different lengths and they are really all that you can ask for in a nylon runner. I love that they come in assorted colors, it's always a surprise, you never know what you're gonna get!

Great for attaching yourself to anchors

I got a couple of these for canyoneering so that I could attach myself to the anchor at the top of the rappel to make clipping in a lot safer. They work great.

No Foresight

Who though it would be a good idea to make their slings 2 inches smaller than the industry standard sizes? The slings them self are great, but the sizing thing is annoying.

They have a funny lengths. My 22in is certainly not a 60cm and it's shy of 2ft... Not a big deal, just odd. It makes a nice racking sling, and I'll probably stick to Sterlings or BDs. Can't complain about looks or quality either.

sport cleaning, great for the $

For Nylon, they are thinner than some of the other alternatives and crazy cheapo for those not into the prices of dyneema.

I haven't had any issue fitting these into any particular harnesses for cleaning or whatever. Used them for the past season and have noticed some mild wear/fray. I barely used these to set any kind of anchors or belay system and mostly used them only to clean sport routes.

They're still usable, and I'd get more if I need extra nylon slings. I'll probably try out the BlackDiamon version next to compare wear n tear. These do look cooler, if nothing else.

If you're going nylon

I have a couple of these and use them as my utility slings for when I'm going to a static system. For most uses though I suggest going Dyneema for not much more money.
