Dyneema sewn slings have become hugely popular for their functionality as a lightweight, low bulk alternative to traditional nylon slings. Sterlings sewn Dyneema slings proved to be some of the most durable and easy to handle slings that we tested. While they arent the skinniest Dyneema slings on the market, at 12mm wide they are 5mm thinner than their nylon counterparts, making them a great option when you are looking to travel a little on the lighter side. Dyneema is, however, a bit more costly than standard nylon, so if weight isnt one of your top priorities, or youre on a budget, stick with the nylon.
While Sterlings Dyneema slings are slightly larger than some of the other Dyneema slings we tested, like the Petzl FinAnneau Sling, they proved to be much easier to untie and slightly more durable. However, when compared to super skinny, yet highly durable sling like the Mammut Crocodile Sling, Sterling Dyneema might not be the best option. If you want a somewhat lightweight, easy to tie and untie, smooth handling sling, this will do you just fine. But if you seek the super lightweight, look elsewhere.
