Nylon has long been the go-to material for climbing slings, and the Sterling Nylon Slings carry on the tradition of nylon serving as a super functional and reliable material for your sling needs. 17mm nylon sewn with heavy duty bartacks offers the recreational climber the safety and ease of use that has become expected from a sewn nylon sling. While bulkier than a modern Dyneema sling, Sterlings nylon slings go for about half the price of their Dyneema brethren.
They are extremely user friendly, and can be used in a wide variety of applications. They are however, less durable than the Black Diamond Nylon Runner and so they will have a shorter lifespan. Also, if youre looking for something small and light, these slings just won't do. At 8mm wider than the Mammut Crocodile Sling and far less durable, these nylon slings should be considered only if youre on a strict budget. You wont be shelling out the big bucks for these, but expect to replace them more frequently than another nylon or Dyneema sling.
