Dyneema Sewn Runners

Sterling's Dyneema Sewn Runners absorb less water than traditional slings, making them a favorite of alpine climbers. Gram-counting, wire-gate-loving, celery-chomping rock climbers will also appreciate their lightweight design and high cut resistance.
  • Note: Sterling doesn't recommend using these slings for dynamic falls because they offer little elongation

Light and strong

I've put it through the wringer

Just what you would hope for from a quality dyneema runner. Holds up to a beating and keeps going.

Light, but not TOO light.

I've used it several times

Every trad climber needs lots of shoulder slings for long alpine routes, and these are the perfect balance of beefy construction and light weight, slim profile-ness. I think it's important for every piece of gear on my harness to serve more than one purpose, and these slings fit that criteria. I've had other, lighter slings that I've used in the past, but I've never felt comfortable using them as part of my anchor system, or as a prusik back-up for my belay hand. With these slings I feel much more comfortable (even though Dyneema shouldn't be used in an anchor system, we know necessity is a mother and you sometime need to make the best of a tough situation). In terms of wear, after half a season of climbing on alpine granite in Washington state, these slings are showing much less fruzzing than other dyneema slings I used from other brands.

I don't usually comment like this, but your review caught my eye. As far as I know one of the applications dyneema is least suitable for is forming friction hitches, it grips very poorly and is sensitive to the heat generated in that particular use. It seems a bit more questionable to use dyneema as a prusik, than to use it as an anchor material which (as long as you are clipped in with some sort of dynamic tether, aka the rope) is quite safe.

It is absolutely OK to use Dyneema in an anchor! Just don't fall directly on that anchor (ie clip directly to that anchor, climb up and fall) because the material has zero elasticity. It'd be fine to clip directly to that anchor as long as you can't fall on it, for instance when you're at a hanging belay. Your climbing rope is a crucial part of the system.

Does the job

I've put it through the wringer

Can't have too many of these, they are slim enough to rack easily and weigh next to nothing. An extra double sling never hurts. My only regret is leaving a couple behind for a bail...


am i supposed to leave the plastic covering on that covers the fused ends?

I leave mine on and so does a buddy of mine that i work with. I think its supposed to protect the stitching

Yeah leave'em on, I think its also to help it glide better so the butt ends don't get hung up on stuff.
