Super easy anchor

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Super easy to set up a three point, equalized anchor with this. Seems super hardy - no visible wear after at least a couple dozen uses.

So Many Options

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I love how you can use this anchor system to set it up with a 2 or 3 way anchor point so you have a little more piece of mind. Works well if you are working in an environment where you need to attach yourself to multiple different anchor points.

Handy quick anywhere anchor

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I like the bagged sling idea. It makes setting up an equalized anchor quicker and a bit easier. I’ve also definitely used it to pass my phone back and forth to get pictures

Thanks for the review Krisitn! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

Great product! Packs down small and very secure. Perfect as a quick and easy anchoring system, equalizes quickly, feels strong/safe..

perfect for learning, bomber...

Bought this for learning/teaching anchor setups. Get two for climbing on multipitches with new learners. Having anchor set up directions on the stow bag is genius...

Very solid anchor system. Thick bomber nylon and hand bag that the nylon folds into. Can easily make 2 or 3 point anchor.

as heavy & less versatile than cordalett

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

I thought the whole point of the webolette was to save weight over the standard 6 or 7mm cordalette? This baggy/equalizer combo is nearly as heavy. The 10 foot metolius has about the same (or slightly less) length as my 7mm cordalette when building 3-piece anchors - so it has reasonably similar functionality... but you have to build the anchor in the webolette way. The full-loop cordalette is just more versatile in the mountains for a variety of uses like prussiking, looping around features, escaping belay, etc. I would consider getting the mountain tools webolette, where you actually get a huge weight savings, or stick with some 7mm cord tied in a big loop.

Useful

Very useful, and very easy to transport thanks to the pocket. I would recommend buying the 15ft.

kinda tacky but great for learning

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This sling was one of the first bits of climbing gear that I purchased. Mainly because I live in rural Kentucky where no one climbs. So I bought everything to build anchors first. That way by the time I had everything I needed to climb I would have some experience in building natural anchors. And I must say, this sling simplified things and I feel confident climbing on it. Also it comes with the convenient little storage pouch which is attached to one of the end loops so you can just attach it to your harness out of the way until you need it while your sport climbing

Works Great

I've climbing now for 20 years and am very skeptical with all the new gadgets and toys. I like the basics and am afraid we can get distracted with bells and whistles. That being said, I kinda bought this on a whim and now love it. This is a great sling that simplifies anchors down to the basics. Ergo, when teaching anchors to my 10 YO son down at the local crag he's not messing with runners, cordelettes, and quick draws. Would I put this in my pack when heading out on more diverse stuff,? Probably not. However, local crag, three bolts, teaching basics, absolutely. Top rope gear = rope, 3 lockers, 2 biners, and this thing, every time.

How does this work exactly? If I have two...

How does this work exactly? If I have two bolts, I create my anchor, leaving the third runner hanging? And what if one bolt is lower than the other, is that going to put disproportionate weight on one end of this?

The equalizer sling is just a length of webbing with a small loop at each end. You can tie it as shown in the photo, which lets you connect to three pieces of gear, or in other arrangements. Here's a link to the manual: http://www.metoliusclimbing.com/pdf/equalizer-instructions.pdf If you just want to make an anchor with two bolts (for example, at the top of a sport route), a double-length sling is a cheaper and more versatile way to go. I attached a photo of my usual setup.

Does it include the 3 locking caribiners for that price?

The Equalizer does not come with the carabiners included but they can be purchased here: http://www.backcountry.com/metolius-bravo-key-lock-screw-lock-carabiner?ti=UExQIEJyYW5kOkxvY2tpbmcgQ2FyYWJpbmVyczowOjM and they are currently on sale.
