Description

Make rappelling safer and easier.

The Omega Pacific Rappel Ring packs an impressive 20kN rating to give you confidence on rappels, and it also reduces friction to make it easier to pull your rope. Using the Omega Pacific Rappel Ring reduces wear-and-tear that destroys fixed gear, and it serves in the place of a carabiner when you're building an anchor.

A great option for climbers/canyoneers

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

I don't use these for my climbing ventures personally , but they are a vital part of my canyoneering gear. As many of the reviews state, these can be used to build a retrievable anchor. This way the canyon looks untouched and you don't loose any of your gear. During my trip to Neon canyon last week I was sure to practice my retrievable anchor in areas where I could climb up in the case it got stuck. I think this is good practice so that you can recognize what types of features will snag on your webbing or catch a ring so you cant pull your anchor. These also can be used in a rappel in which retrieving it is not an option, but that's just not as much fun!

Hey Jacob,

This rappel ring is made of 11mm Aircraft grade aluminum tubing stock and has a 1.25 inner diameter

saved my carabiners!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

used these for the first time in Moab and they were a life saver with the sandy ropes which always wear down my carabiners when making a sport anchor on my climbs. after multiple climbs, these have shown much less wear then the carabiners that had the same rope run through them.

Worked out great for a super quick setup of my hammock.

Good Rap Ring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Cheap. Light. Cheap. With some tubular webbing these are a great leavers. Be careful reusing the leavers you pick up. Always inspect them. Though lighter, the aluminum ones are much more prone to wear than the steels. The sand and grit in your rope can leave flat spots on the aluminum ring. Backcountry doesn't carry steel rap rings though.

You will need to get down...

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

If you liked it you should put a ring on it...Essential in trad. pick up a few incase you cant get them back. Highly recommend.

Cheap and simple.

Been using a pair of these to rig a 3:1 primitive slackline set up. They do their job. can't beat the price.

Measured weight

I have 3 of these for my slackline kit and sport rack. My scale reads 32.6g which = 1.15oz.; 32.8g =1.16oz.ish; 32.9g =1.16oz. fairly consistent weight.

Nice to have all the time

These simple rappel rings are critical for ice or trad climbing. Whereas a sport climb will typically (maintained sport routes, at least) have a rap station available, trad and especially ice climbing routes won't always have a fixed station available. Or if there is, its integrity could be suspect. Carrying a ring or two, especially on a big trip to an unknown area leaves me with the confidence that I can get home safely with only a small financial sacrifice. Carry a ring and some webbing or cordelette and you're rapping off a tree, horn or whatever is secure.
The aluminum is great for a few rappels, but it's not an appropriate permanent fixture and won't last long for top roping - so don't.

Light, cheap, effective

It is a strong, light "O ring." Works great for rappels,not to big, not to small. What more is there to know? For the price, its totally worth it.

Good Chiose

These ring works very well in different situations i`ve used it to rapel ( not as a device) and right now i used a lot to rig my slack line. good price and many uses.

Decent product

I used these for my hammock suspension and quickly realized that I made a mistake. They'll work for the buckle systems but only when properly placed. They're big, bulky, and way heavier than some biners. Simple fix... A small piece of chord. Use a prusix instead of these on hammocks. Lighter, easier, & faster. Leave the prusix on the webbing and use a biner to attach.

For climbing, they work for their purpose. Which is not belaying.

Using Rap Rings for Retrievable Anchor

Posted on

Skip to 1:38 to see the rings in use with the retrievable anchor. No webbing was left in the canyon.

Responded on

Is it a problem to have your metal ring fall an extended distance onto rock? Seems like this is a bad idea for the ring and the rock.

Like you were never there! I like your videos Jeff, they are very informative.

Keep them just in case

  • Gender: Male

They are light, and they serve many purposes, I always keep one on my bail biner just in case, and these are great for building retrievable systems when heading into the canyon country. At a low price it doesn't hurt to have a few of these laying around or a permanent part of your harness.

Retrievable Anchor for Canyoneering

I bought 2 of these to use as a retrievable anchor system when I go canyoneering in the southern Utah slot canyons so I don't have to leave any webbing or quick links behind. These are a lot lighter than steel rings which is why I bought them. I will post a video of the retrievable anchor when I make the video. :)

Convenient Carry

Smooth, solid, and handy to have in your pack when canyoneering or on long wondering rock routes. They are a little bit more expensive than other rings like it but these are quality.

Slack Line

I love these rings for setting up the slackline. If you use the rings instead of 2 more oval carabiners the main line will always be flat.

Responded on

What's the diameter of this ring because I want to use it on my 2inch gibbon classic slackline?

Responded on

I do not believe that would fit. I have a one inch line and that is as wide as it can fit.

Way to useful not to carry

90% of the time that i use this it's to quickly setup my hammock. A tree hugger, 1 biner, & 2 of these make for a 5 minute campsite. As said in the previous posts, you can't rap with them but i do use it in my setup occasionaly. Ultralight, compact, super strong, and can accomodate all but the thickest rope easily. If you're on the trail carry at least 2. I guarantee you'll find a use for them before you return.
