Pros Most affordable, handles great, elastic stretch properties when catching a fallLow weight, very thin, handles great, affordableVery light, low bulk, easy to manipulate, very small bar tackLight weight, low bulk, knots untie relatively easily, affordableLow price, light weight despite width, small bar tack
Cons Heavy, bulky, lots of friction in alpine quickdrawsWeighted knots harder to untie than thicker slingsHigh price, harder than some to untie knotsNot as soft a handle as other top scorersAbrasive edges, wide for the weight
Bottom Line A small trade-off in performance for a relatively large savings in cost when considering buying a whole rackOur 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 testedOne of the best value purchases available for a climbing sling
