Per the Metolius website:
"PAS is yet another example of Metolius’ commitment to products that are safer by design. It is designed to give the climber a high-strength anchor connection while threading for the lower, setting up a rappel or belaying. The PAS should replace the daisy chain that many climbers wear affixed to their harnesses for belay change-overs. Daisy chains should NOT be used because tThe PAS is constructed from our super-strong, proprietary Power Webbing™.hey are full-strength only when loaded in the end loops (intermediate pockets are only 300 lbf/1.3 kN). The PAS is super convenient and easily adjustable--just clip the loop which puts you at the correct height and . . . voila! When not in use, just leave it girth-hitched to your tie-in points, gather the extra loops and clip to the side for compact storage."
