    • Add a couple lightweight carabiners (sold separately) to make your own extendable sling for alpine climbing

    Please note: Mammut products can only be shipped to the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    Mammut Contact Sling Dyneema 8.0 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mammut vs Black Diamond The Mammut and Black Diamond slings are identical on paper. The differences are as follows: - The stitching on the Mammut is shorter, and the ends spliced in such a way as not to catch on things - The Black Diamond slings seem less prone to fuzzing and abrasion - The Mammut is more flexible, knottable, and handles better. - The Black Diamond seems to slide more smoothly through carabiners in self-equalizing rigs. - They're both the same width, despite being "8mm" and "10mm" on the spec sheets. It doesn't make much difference in the end. Both are far far lighter and more compact than nylon, and less prone to twists and tangles than cord. I use Mammut for my draws and Black Diamond for anchor rigging just so I can tell them apart at a glance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best runners These are the best runners made. Full strength, pretty durable, skinier and lighter than most slings. The kicker for me is the label sewn over the stitching so there is a less of a tendency for the stitching to catch when feeding through biners. I use these on all my alpine draws, although I use another brand for my double length alpine draws because thicker fabric unknots easier.
