    Solid

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Really nice, lightweight daisy chain. Never felt like my confidence in putting this piece of equipment through max stress was in any way compromised by how lightweight and pliable it is. I ended up ordering a couple extras to just keep in my rack for buddies or any other needs.

    Super handy

      Great for a personal anchor, Lightweight and easy to use. BD did it again with another simple and durable product.

      In case you have not already come across this information, daisy chains are not designed to be personal anchors. There are several other products and techniques that specifically address the demands of personal anchors. Of course climb your own climb but I wanted to at least share this info. https://www.climbing.com/skills/anchors-away/

      Good for securing gear- not very strong

        Decent for organizing your gear, do not buy with intention to use this as a personal anchoring system, the loops are only rated at like 3kn, if it were to break you would probably only fall a few feet, but it wouldn't be on a dynamic system , and probably break something. Don't risk it.

        Great organization

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I use these bad boys for organizing all my assorted gear for trad and sport climbing. Makes it easy to find everything you need when you're getting ready for a 45 foot sport climb or 300 foot multipitch.

        Great organization

        Awesome Product

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Durable, high quality, silent...are just a few words to describe this. This product does what it is supposed to do. What more could you want?

        Simple.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The BD Nylon Daisy chain has been with me since I started climbing and does exactly what it should do. I liked that it was a random color because the color wasn't all that important to me. Easy to use and does the job.

        simple solid daisy

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        first daisy chain was this nylon BD daisy. they do a good job, they match any color of aider out there, and the 140cm is plenty long. as any daisy it should be respected and not used for anything other then for AID climbing. I use it on every big wall and it does its job.

        simple solid daisy

        Simple, Straightforward

          It does the job. I've used BD daisy chains for years, and I have never had an issue with them. I will continue to use them because they are so easy to use, and because I trust the quality. Easy to clip, and pretty colors (yes, quite noteworthy). Hands down essential for climbing- would definitely recommend!

          Bad customer service

            They have the "customer notes" in their shipping, yet they never read it, they just don t care. I ordered a specific color for a reason. I am dissapointed.

            Hey Javier, I'm sorry for the disappointment. The colors are shipped to us randomly and we ship them randomly. Feel free to email me, I might be able to get you the right color. ccostley@backcountry.com

            sorry dude but backcountry.com has THE BEST customer service out there. they make sure I get the best deals shipped to me ASAP. sorry the color wasn't ideal but 3 stars isn't deserved..

            quality

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            ive had no issues with this daisy chain for almost 3 years now with lots of use in all the seasons. i switched to a metolius chain this summer because its safer a lot quicker and you dont need to use 2 biners shorten it. id watch the video black diamond had to make about this product because of its glitch(if i can call it a glitch) before buying it.

            Hammock Straps

              I love using daisy chains for hammock straps too! Just do be very careful!

              I know you probably didn't wait a year, but the problem is the double bar tack in between loops on the daisy is rated much lower than the Nylon itself. Clipping across a bar tack, if it fails, can cause the carabiner to come completely unattached which could be fatal in climbing or painful for hammocks.

              Read me!

                Great for aid climbing and self anchor if you know how to use it! If this is your first time buying a personal anchor system then I would consider using something else becuase if you use this one the wrong way, It could result in death.

                Solid But...

                  The daisy chain was not intended to be a personal anchor system for cleaning sport anchors. They were intended to be used for aid climbing. It still works for cleaning sport gear but I would instead recommend the PAS from Metolious. The PAS offers more flexibility in length that the daisy doesn't do safely. For easy of cleaning and peace of mind the PAS is more solid.

                    These are great for aiding and organizing, just note that these are NOT necessarily load bearing. EDIT: The individual loops are, as Duncan said, rated to only 2 kN, while the ends are rated to 22 kN. Just be careful with these; I've seen a lot of people use them as a PAS, which is safe when done right, but 1 in 1000 times can get you in trouble.

                    This is not true. The individual loops are only rated to 2 kN each but the daisy as a whole is a full strength nylon sling rated to, I believe, 22 kN. But yes, be very careful with the individual loops.

                    If I'm going to buy two for my ascenders,...

                    If I'm going to buy two for my ascenders, should I get two different lengths to stagger them or just get two of the same size?

                    This Daisy Chain is the most cheaper......

                    This Daisy Chain is the most cheaper... why?


                    is not too good like other?

                    Dinex is newer than nylon, twice the price and you actually shave around 30 grams, i don't think you'll notice the difference unless you carry a lot of equipment. I use this as a personal anchor, just remember not to clip more than one loop! (http://www.bdel.com/videos/daisy.html)

                    how does a daisy chain work ?

                    Best Answer

                    The idea behind a daisy chain is that when you get to an anchor (for multi-pitching or cleaning a toprope) you can clip directly in to the bolts at an adjustable length. This will vary based on your belay stance, the setup of the anchor, the freedom of movement you need, whether there are other people there or not, etc. The important thing to remember is that when shortening a daisy chain, clip only to the loop closer to your harness, not to both that and the end. Any serious climber should have a daisy chain (or 2) and these are a great option. If you feel like forking out some extra cash, the Dynex version is just as strong, but smaller and lighter. And better looking. Your call.**Though some free climbers do use daisy chains for the above mentioned purpose, they are really meant to be used in aid climbing for a leader to hang from the topmost anchor placement while placing the next peice. As mentioned above it is real important to remeber not to clip into one of the tacked loops and the end loop (if the tacks pull your biner will fall right out). If this doesn't quite make sense it's suggested that you take a regular sling or loop of something and use masking tape to simulate bar tacks in a daisy chain. Clip in like you would in the real daisy chain and pull to make sure that (in the event of a failure) you would still be clipped in.
