The Lyon Nylon Sling offer the climber exceptional value for money without any compromise to strength and handling. The shorter slings are ideal for use as Quickdraws when combined with two carabiners, and the longer ones are invaluable for setting up belays, throwing over spikes or wrapping around blocks when you’re out trad climbing. Nylon slings have reliability second to none, with a longevity that will out last the thinner Dyneema tapes. But because Nylon slings are wider and made from a heavier material they weigh more. The good thing about a Nylon sling is that they give good visual re-assurance, which does help with confidence.
