Swing Dynamic Belay Lanyard
When you get to the anchor the last thing you want to do is fumble with a bunch of gear. With the Swing Dynamic Belay Lanyard from CAMP USA, you won't have too. The newly released Swing can girth hitch to the sturdiest part of your harness on one end and lock-in to a master point on the other. Once you're secure, you can easily adjust your distance from the anchor with the ergonomic adjuster even with a load.
After your partner has met you at the anchor, you can start climbing as seamlessly as you stopped—with a quick release of tension from the device and then reattaching the carabiner to your harness. And the Swing can handle any locking carabiner with its wide entry point for an even higher ease of use

- Ergonomic adjuster can be moved under load

Buy the Petzl Connect Adjust instead
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
TL;DR: It is unreasonably difficult to adjust the length. I recommend going with the Petzl Connect Adjust (or Dual Connect Adjust) instead. I bought the Swing for my wife to replace her Metolius PAS. I've used the Petzl Connect Adjust (CA) for the past three years and I am very happy with it–easy to use, smooth and consistent action. I thought the Swing would improve upon the CA since you can extend the Swing without having to unweight it, like you otherwise have to do with the CA. However, it is unreasonably difficult to adjust your position. In fact, when I pull on the lanyard as hard as I can and it doesn't budge. To shorten the lanyard, I have to unweight it, tilt the adjuster to release, push the rope through one side, and pull it out of the other side. I suspect that MAYBE after using it for a while and breaking it in this issue may resolve itself. But to us, it's not worth the frustration or carrying gear that causes so much inefficiency in our systems. It's also worth noting that the loop used to girth hitch it to your tie-in loops didn't fit my wife's harness. Since her hips are proportionally higher on her waist, her tie-in loops remain a few inches apart. So the girth hitch would be either very tight, make the harness uncomfortable, or the girth hitch would be very loose and clutter her harness and gear. I didn't have this issue since my tie-in loops come together. But in defense of the Swing, she would have this issue with the CA as well since the loop used to girth hitch on both are basically the same. I think if CAMP improved the ease of adjustability, this product could be a winner. But in the meantime, I recommend the CA.

I read this and almost thought I wrote the review. I agree exactly with your thoughts. My girlfriend used my Petzl and wanted something adjustable, I thought this would be an improvement but had the same findings. Sold it on mountain project a few weeks ago and bought another Petzl. Bummer

Agree 100%. I REALLY wanted to like this thing, but it just doesn't work as well as the Connect Adjust. Nothing worse than getting to the anchors after a pumpy pitch and being too weak to adjust this thing! Just nowhere near the smoothness of the Petzl version. It's almost like the rope itself is too stiff to move through the device properly.
