- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This gear sling is great at keeping gear well organized when on long multi-pitch climbs. The sling is also padded along the shoulder areas to prevent uncomfortable rubbing. Fits loads of gear and is very durable. Also great for throwing gear on and being able to toss in the pack and not have to worry about losing your gear. Overall, this is a great piece of equipment to keep all of your gear organized whether you are hanging out at the crag or on a long multi-pitch climbs.
Carry more gear
I spent a couple years trying to keep my harness from falling off with all the gear loops full. I kept thinking about a sling but hesitated on the $24 purchase, and I am very disappointed with my decision to wait. I love having the sling while climbing long routes, and it helps put the weight on my chest rather than my hips so I climb more comfortably. Every if you're not throwing down on big walls, its nice to use to organize your gear and carry it to the crag.
Before buying this I also suggest looking here: http://www.backcountry.com/metolius-multi-loop-double-d-gear-sling
The Multi Double Sling is the exact same sling as the one on this page, but has an additional loop which goes under your arm. This helps reduce the amount of swinging the sling does when climbing, and adds even more gear space. I found the underarm sling later and added it to mine, but I would consider the extra $9 because you can take the extra sling off whenever you'd like.
The sling has held up very well and does separate out the gear. I had high anticipation of it helping the organization and selection of gear while climbing, but found it didn't help as much as I thought it would. Still a good product though.
Feels good & seems to distribute weight
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just got it and have not had a chance to use it outdoors. I filled it with some gear and lugged it around a while. It feels pretty good. I like the fact that it has multiple loops to limit the gear from shifting.
I have used this several times now and am very please with it
GET out the way stupid cams!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
So you are intricately and methodically placing your cams in each loop, this size here, a double here, stack it up, dont want to run short!! Ahh perfect. Then with a bristling, shiny ornamentation of cam flair you being to climb, and climb you do with the deftest of ability. However midway thru that first pitch, the cams are now smacking your nether regions and playing patty cake with with yer patellas. This just wont do. Maybe i need to climb harder routes and or overhangs. Perhaps this would keep all the cams behind me...Note to self.
Is this intended to sit across a shoulder...
Is this intended to sit across a shoulder chest and back. Or can it be worn over the waist? I prefer the symmetry of wearing my sling over the waist. Or I'd have to get one of those two shoulder backpack-like gear slings.
definitely over the shoulder.
Over the shoulder so the gear is on your hip.
Perfect for a Trad Rack
All the separate loops and adjustable length make this a perfect for any rack, but especially a trad rack. Get one and try it out yourself, you won't be sorry.
This thing is awesome. First off, you can organize you whole rack so much better. Cams here, Draws there, slings here, etc. For storage this is super helpful. And everything looks so nice and neat!
And for climbing I like it as well. I am still sorting out how I like it best for different routes(nuts on harness, slings on gear loop, etc), but having everything separated is great.
Can clip stuff all over it!
I keep most my equipment on this sling when I'm not wearing it. You aren't limited to clipping just on the formed loops. You can clip on the sling behind them, or in between them, or at either end of them. I have a hell of a lot of weight on mine when I'm not climbing. I pick the whole thing up and kind of layer it into my pack for storage in between climbs. I have been getting more cams and am about to start bagging them separately to avoid messing them up and banging them into all the other gear. I just have to say that this gear sling is awesome. I do a lot of short practice aid climbs and the loops really help out my organization of pro. I also like the single shoulder model so that I can switch it over to my other shoulder if I wish to lighten up the side it's on. Just a great sling.
Great Gear Sling!
This is the first gear sling I have owned and I love it! The different loops keep my rack organized and the trap is adjustable so you are sure to have a comfortable fit with your gear in reach.
Are there like left or right-handed versions...
Are there like left or right-handed versions of this gear sling? If Im right handed - on which arm is it better to wear it? ;)
There is only one version of this sling and it will rotate to accommodate right or left-handed use. In fact, I like having a sling because it allows you to shift all your gear from one side to the other when you need to shift your balance during a climb.
Michal, there isn't a particular arm you should wear the sling. It really depends on the route. Example, if you're climbing a corner with your left side against the rock and your right side in space, sling it over your left shoulder and hanging on your right side, that way your free right hand can easily access the gear.

Metolius Multi Loop Gear Sling
I really like the Metolius Multi Loop Gear Sling. I hate it when everything tangles into a ball of cams, and this sling generally prevents that while maintaining the transfer ease of a single sling. More complicated slings hinder movement and are hard to hand off, while less featured slings don't do everything I need. This one is perfect.
great sling. Been using this gear sling for many years. Great for organizing pieces. Wires are separated from cams. No more RP's stuck in trigger wires. While at a stance I'll look up the route to anticipate what my next couple pieces will be, then I put those pieces on draws and rack them right up front. Then when I'm gunning through a crux the pro is all ready to be plugged in.
I like how this sling keeps gear separated and organized so that you always know where to reach for a certain piece. I haven't had any problems with this sling, it is comfy and easy to use.
I've had this Mulit Gear Loop Gear Sling for the past like 5+ years now, and I absolutely love it! I've put a whole trad rack on the gera sling and I have put all my quickdraws on my harness. It seperates the gear nicely for me as well. I don't go climbing without it!
I didn' t like the separated gear loops. It sounded like a good idea but you really can't fit a lot of gear on it and it doesn't help with organization like I thought it would. I returned it. I'm going to get the single gear loop.
Good Gear Sling
This thing does as it should. The gear loops are well constructed and great for organizing specific draws or cam sizes. The shoulder strap is well padded. You can change the length of the shoulder strap but its not the easiest process. However, that didnt stop me from owning a few of these slings.
Nice gear loop
I have used it for one season and love it. I bought a second one for my wife. My only complaint is that it's a bit awkward to adjust the length. If you and your partner differ a lot in size, that might be an issue.
The places it can take you...
Great gear sling, awesome for organizing a med-large trad rack. Here it is at the top of "bedtime for bonzo (5.6+) a fun 2 pitch trad route that tops out to one of the best views in the Red River Gorge. what a view!
