Product Description

Nothing's worse than a 30lb. pin rack & a cheesy gear sling to hang it on. Our double-sided, super-beefy Big Wall Gear Sling is ergonomically cut to evenly spread the load of all that iron! Its hearty, 1050d Ballistics outer fabric is laminated with firm, die-cut gel foam and soft, non-absorbent Conlureā„¢ lining. Back pad has a storage pouch for hydration system or spare gear and clothing. Choose from either our standard gear loop configuration or our innovative multi-loop version.

Dow WilliamsMulti Loop Version..

Voted 4/5

I use the multi loop version. I am a small climber, like 145lbs wet. I either like to go off my harness or if we have more gear than it takes to choke a horse, I use this product vs a single sling. Because I am small, the whole single sling option rides all over me. This double sling keeps everything in place no matter how much jugging I do. The only reason I gave it 4 stars vs 5 is that you can't get half pregnant. They advertise the pocket in back as to be for your water reservoir which is exactly what you would use it for, but it barely contains a 1 liter reservoir. On big wall days, lets just go ahead and make this pouch serve its purpose...already hauling up the extra weight of a fancy gear sling, it should be a 2 liter pouch to be sure.
