Gets the job done
It's a simple PAS, works great, fun colors, it's exactly what it needs to be... and at a reasonable price if you catch it on sale.

Solid and reliable
Good pas, see it used more than any other. That said I prefer the dynamic PAS version and it's about the same price via REI. Either one is bomber

Simple and easy to adjust
Already used it and cleaned well over 30 routes and It gets the job done, easy to adjust to varying anchor width.

Simple and Efficient Gear from Metollius
This Personal Anchor System is great. Really lightweight, multiple loops make it really to hook in to bolts. A necessity for cleaning anchors.

Excellent quality from Metolius. I use the PAS on every climb. I find it useful for sport climbing, and even better for multi-pitch trad. For me, it saves time and increases safety by allowing me to quickly anchor to bolts or gear. Also great for easily extending a rappel. The weight is very reasonable at about 3 whole ounces. Might seem a bit expensive at first, but it's totally worth it once you put it to use.

5 stars for simplicity!
A great choice for climbers of all abilities. It’s a very simple piece of gear but one I don’t leave the house without!

Every climber should have one
I love the loops to adjust lengths depending on the anchor. Every climber should have one!

The piece of equipment works great! Girth hitch this bad boy to your harness and you're good to go for cleaning anchors or hanging out at belay stations. The multiple loops allows for super easy distance adjustment. As with any piece of climbing equipment, inspect this PAS before each use. Will definitely be purchasing one for my wife.

The PAS 22 is a beast!
So I am pretty new to sport climbing but wanted to start leading some routes and then also cleaning them. I found this item while searching the internet and all its resources for good personal anchor systems. Let me just say that the PAS 22 is great. I have cleaned multiple routes with it and it is supper easy to use. You simply girth hitch it through both tie in loops and then clip it to the anchor of the sport route. I also bought two DMM phantom locking carabiners. And these work great with it. I know with this system you only need one attachment point or so I think but I always like to have backups. The carabiners are really light and the PAS is super strong. I believe it is like 22 kn per loop. So basically they put a bunch of belay loops together and made a really strong versatile system. The ability to use any loop allows for a very easy anchoring and quick cleaning. Overall I think that this is a great system. Honestly I have no problems so far.

Safety first kids!
I use this all the time when I'm sport climbing. Easy to use with a simple hitch to my harness and a locking biner to the wall. Secure and sturdy and it's standing up great to the abuse that I put my gear through. Everyone who cleans or leads sport routes should have one.

Phenomenal piece of gear. I use it to anchor or back up my anchor at the top of sport routes when cleaning. Easy equalization and durable material make me confident it'll be around for many more sends to come.

The perfect PAS system!

Just what I needed

Super Secure but Slightly Bulky
The PAS 22 offers convenience and security when locking into an anchor. The only downside compared to the alpine PAS is that its bulkier and can get in the way during the ascent, especially with harder sport climbs.

A must have!
So easy to use. Also setting up the correct length on it at the chains if they are not even is easy to do. This is a must have for anyone climbing outdoors.

PAS 22 Vs Alpine PAS
Check out this video describing the differences between the PAS systems that Metolius offers.

I don't know why it took me so long to pull the trigger on one of these. After years of using slings or 6mm cord as a PAS, I finally purchased this one and I will never go back. I love how easy it is to adjust the length and equalize your anchor when you get to a belay. This is a must-have for any multi-pitch climbs, but it's also really handy for clipping in real quick to clean single pitch sport routes. It's pretty much always on my harness unless I'm at the gym, and I don't feel like it adds too much bulk. I'd rather carry a slightly bigger, more adjustable PAS with me all day than have to fumble with the length of slings or cord every time I set up a belay.

Tool used for anchoring yourself at a customizable distance to your anchor. Holds up exceptionally well. Looks brand new despite getting extensive use.

What would be the advantage of this pas vs the alpine pas? 12kn seems enough for personal anchor use. That's over 2500lbsf. That's what the Alpine is rated to. This one is more expensive and heavier and stiffer. trying to understand the advantage over the alpine for use as a pas.
