MammutDyneema Contact Sling - 8mm

Never leave home with it.

Mammut works hard each year to make its Dyneema Contact Sling lighter without taking away any of its strength. Like most slings, Mammut made it out of super strong and light Dyneema, but unlike most slings, Mammut's Contact stitching technique ensures optimum handling and strength throughout the sling, even in the seam area. This makes it ready to please you whether you're sending sandstone, climbing crack, cranking ice, or alpine climbing your way to the top.

great for Alpine Draws and quad anchors

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The 60cm size is really nice for alpine draws--they're thin and 'slick' and the seam stitching makes them run through the carabiners smoothly.
The 180cm size--which is not a common size--is perfect for setting up a quad anchor on multipitch routes with bolted hangers. I think I read that off the comments on here, and it's true.

Could always use more.

Buy these when they go on sale on Backcountry, whether you are a sport climber or a fully realized trad sender, having multiple of these is always useful!

Robust Dyneema for multiple uses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Use this from any where to building anchor systems and alpine draws to using it in a z drag system for boating. Can trust this sling for a multitude of purposes and you should definitely find it in your gear assortment.

multiple uses

    These are awesome! I actually used them to set up my hammock. They are super solid! If you have any questions, hit me at 801-523-4075 or email me at borloski@backcountry.com.

    Top Notch!

    I am the 42nd person to give them a 5 star rating. Not sold? Reach out!

    Alpines and Anchors

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am very satisfied with my repeat orders of Mammut Dyneema slings. I use the 60cm slings for each of my alpine draws, and the 180cm as an available anchor sling. The fabric is difficult to tangle and racks easily.

    Best slings.... EVER

      These are by far the best quality, and smoothest handling slings on the market. They lay really nice and flat when you are making your alpine quick-draws. It is the only sling that has the tag sewn integrated into the bar-tac stitching, making it one less thing to worry about. Highly recommended

      Great Slings

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I got the 60 cm for alpine draws and the 120s for anchors. I love how lightweight and narrow these are without compromising on strength-I can thread them through a v thread when setting up a toprope on ice :D Way easier to clean than trying to untie cord. My favorite slings I have used thus far!

      No-snag sling!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I used to think all slings were created equal until I found this Mammut sling. At the area where the sling is connected and stitched together to itself, there is no excess material outside of the stitching to get snagged. The sling stitching is amazing! Also, these are very lightweight. Would definitely recommend!

      Even Better Than Pictured

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Obviously these slings are going to perform at a high level, there is no question about it. Something I was impressed about was how lightweight they are! I imagined that they would be wide and bulky but they are actually quite thin and light which makes them perfect for making lightweight alpine draws. These are great and I would definitely buy them again and recommend them to anyone.

      Awesome Slings

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've had a number of these for years and love them. They're a nice durable sling that is supple and holds up well.

      I've got the following:
      60cm - 6+ of these for alpine draws
      120cm - 3 of these for quick anchors and extending pro at roofs
      240cm - 1 of these for quad anchors

      One of the nicest features is the seam where the two ends are overlapped and sewn together are covered with a sleeve so there is no catching when a biner is sliding over them.

      A sling is not just a sling.

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      My friend uses these for her alpine draws so i went ahead and got some too to build mine. I picked these because the Mammut tag covers the seam to keep that from getting caught on anything or in the way. The Dyneema that Mammut uses is more supple and easier to manage while in the middle of a climb. I went for the 60cm to build my draws.

      Nice

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After years of using sewn nylon runners, I decided to try a more lightweight Dyneema sling for my anchoring system. The feel of Mammut Contact slings is great. The sewn edges are smooth instead of having an edge and they take up so little space compared to the old slings.

      Is it possible to have too many slings?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you answered no, then you should probably pick up a few more of these guys! Lightweight, sewn terminals, dyneema too - i hear the last one is important.
      Pick some up!

      best slings out there

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are light, strong and well made. For alpine slings (triple-looped on 2 'biners), I haven't found anything better than the 60 cm Mammut Contact slings. I take a couple knotted nylon slings on multi-pitch routes in case I have to replace a rappel sling or the like, but these dyneema slings are far lighter. The unique (?) stitching on these slings seems to make them easier to handle too.

      Well thought out and light as air

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I replaced all my Sterling 1" tubular webbing slings with these and couldn't be happier. They are waaaaay less bulky. Also mammut was very clever by sewing their label over the stitched part where the dyneema connects back to itself (the bartack) this way you get a nice seamless loop and that edge doesn't catch on your neck when removing a shoulder sling and it doesn't catch on a biner when clipping. Love them.

      Thanks for the review Gabriel! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

      Good but not great

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Thin, handles well, light.... These are all good thing however they get fuzzy and snag easier than the BD Dyneema.

      Favorite Sling

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      All time favorite sling. Compact, doesn't fray, sewn ends to prevent snags. What more do you want?

      Unanswered Question

      Can these be used to make anchors for sports climbing?

      Alpine Draw

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It's thin and that makes this sling a great choice for alpine draw.
      I'm not too enthusiastic about slings in general, but this one hasn't let me down.
