This is not a necessity when climbing, slings will work just fine. But this is great if you wanna spend the money on it cause it's easy to adjust the length and makes life so much easier especially on multi pitches!
This is a great PAS. I feel very comfortable using it as my personal anchor system. Love the fact that each loop is rated independently of the whole system, making adjustments based on anchor positions easy. Also, having the end loop a different color from the rest of the loops is an added bonus.
Got this bad boy to replace the nylon slings I was using. Holy crap, what a difference. For one, having 1 piece to act as a PAS is way more convenient than 2 slings, so there's less fumbling. Also, the color coding on the end runner just makes for easy identification in the moment.And even though you're not really supposed to, all those extra runners in between your anchor and harness just act as great storage when you're hanging out at the belay forever.And finally, the extra length makes it so easy and simple to extend your belay/rappel if guiding and/or setting up an auto-block.One thing to note however, is that because this is made primarily of dyneema, you need to be extra careful that there isn't undue soft-on-soft friction, either from your rope or the contact point on your harness, since it is more vulnerable than nylon.All in all, I'm so glad I made the switch. A definite upgrade.
This daisy chain is great for using as a personal anchor and for ascending. I use it to anchor in to the top of climbs and it makes me feel significantly safer. It is incredibly strong and I am hoping that it will last me a long time. It has done a fantastic job so far. I also use it with a prusik and carabiner to ascend with. It is the perfect length for my height and the large loop fits my foot just fine. It is light weight and multi-purpose. Plus, it is blue :)*
Absolutely great piece of equipment. So easy to secure yourself at the anchors to make whatever rope changes are necessary. Very light and very strong. Way better than your average daisy chain because each loop on the anchor is weighted to 22kn, which makes it much safer and gives you peace of mind. GET IT!
I got this product after reading reviews all of the internet about it. I am not disappointed, unlike a traditional daisy chain all the loops are fully load bearing so you have much greater flexibility with it's use. Would highly suggest anyone using daisy chains to upgrade to this product.
When cleaning this is definitely a must, it allows you to adjust your height from the bolts so your not hanging and stretching so far like you get with just slings. Holds up well and works great. Bottom line if you want to be comfertable when hanging out up top go to this PAS
I bought the black/green one a couple months ago and couldn't be happier with it! I use it all the time and it's very versatile for any anchoring and safety needs. I use mine to hang from every time I am playing with my prusiks. I ascend up to the top of the wall, clip this in for safety, swap my prusiks for my ATC, unclip it and ascend down. Definitely the best PAS chain out there!Andy

I've been using slings and runners to setup anchors and it can be a pain to get the length right sometimes, especially at a hanging belay. This PAS is great because it's easy to adjust the length and each loop is individually rated.
