Too Small for 44"+ chest sizes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This Gear Sling is an excellent idea. However for those of us with a 44"+ chest size this thing doesn't give you enough room to breathe. It's way to constrictive for people such as me. The best thing Metolius could do is to have the extender part fold back onto itself to neatly tuck the adjustment end away. Maybe a simple sewn loop on the shoulder where the adjustment end can be looped and folded back under would work for smaller sling lengths. Us bigger people would be able to undo that part and release the extra length.

Don't know why I didn't get this sooner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had been racking gear on a 2ft sling of webbing since I started climbing. I generally don't like racking on my harness unless I'm trying to lead something at my limit and know exactly which pieces of pro I'll need on which side of my harness. I finally broke down and decided to give this a go.

I have no idea how I went so long without it. It keeps things much more nicely organized, but the biggest advantage is all your gear doesn't swing in front or behind you like racking on a piece of webbing or sling without the additional strap. I find the farthest back loop to be a bit useless as it is too far behind my back to comfortably reach gear when I need it, but it still is far and away better than any other sling without gear loops.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I rarely wear a gear sling. You most often find me racking directly onto my harness. However, if I'm on a route where there's a lot of gear required, or if I'll be squeezing up a chimney, I'll throw this bad boy on. I like the option of the second sling to stabilize the whole rig. If there is one thing I cant stand, its a rack swinging forward and dangling across my belly. This rig eliminates that. Of all the gear slings out there, Metolius is the only brand getting it right.

Is this enough?
There are a ton of attachments on this double sling. Does the extra organization help or hurt? I've seen folks rack their harness and nothing else, I've seen folks rack a sling and nothing else, then there's this sophisticated device with a wealth of dividers. Is it necessary? What kind of a pitch/multi-pitch requires so much? off-width?

The extra strap makes this way more stable than just the gear sling without it which tends to shift (which you may want in some situations). I find that a gear sling that shifts is nice when you are in a corner that changes directions so you can just flip it to the other side so you aren't pinning your gear against the wall. on more facey climbs or roofs like the ones at the Gunks I did not like the shifting and used the extra strap. On other climbs that are just taking small gear and I know the exact rack I just put it all on my harness. So to sum it up, it is personal and situational.
