Pros Low weight, very thin, handles great, affordableVery light, low bulk, easy to manipulate, very small bar tackLight weight, low bulk, knots untie relatively easily, affordableCovered sewn bar tack, thin and lightLow price, light weight despite width, small bar tack
Cons Weighted knots harder to untie than thicker slingsHigh price, harder than some to untie knotsNot as soft a handle as other top scorersExpensive, rubberized covering adds weight and feels weird sliding through handsAbrasive edges, wide for the weight
Bottom Line Our Editors’ Choice winner because it is lighter and more compact than any other without compromising performanceA sling that outperforms the competition, but also costs a lot more…One of the highest value options that we testedA solid performer that is slightly heavier, bulkier, and costlier than other top performersOne of the best value purchases available for a climbing sling
