The new Alpine Equalizer by Trango is the perfect solution for quickly equalizing up to three placements. Based on the R and D work done by Jim Cormier at Cormier Mountaineering, we've updated it, lightened it and adapted it to work great in any setting. Use it on ice or in the alpine for a speedy anchor, carry it on multi-pitch bolt routes for a quick anchor at the belays or use it as a super long runner. While ideally suited as a self-adjusting anchor system, it can be made non-extending by tying an overhand knot in the center loop (shown) or by clove-hitching at each protection point. Available in 2 lengths; the 6' version is ideal for most 3-anchor set-ups while the 3' foot one saves weight and bulk and can be extended with runners or draws.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UNTRUSTWORTHY - both Trango customer service and this equalizer Massively disappointing. I ordered this device based on the advertised spec that the equalizer is rated to 25kN. The packaging and the instructions that came with the equalizer also specify that the equalizer is rated to 25kN. What a kick in the nuts to open the package and see that the tape is clearly labeled '12kN'. I emailed Trango directly in the hope of getting some clarification, but I have heard nothing for 3 weeks now. There's no way I'll be hanging off one of these on a multi. Trango appear to be misleading their customers, but I don't want to be the first lawsuit cos if this fails me, I'll most likely be dead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Thought Out The Alpine Equalizer is something that a lot of people have tried to do using biners, but Trango have come up with a slick system using a couple of rated rings. If you do a lot of trad climbing like me it really does come in handy, but doesn't replace some cordage for prussics. The 3 foot version seems a bit out of place, seeing as you need to carry a couple extra slings any way. But the 6 foot version is really easy to use, plus you can use it as one long sling in a pinch. A good ammount of weight savings compared to the same outcome using conventional cordage and carabiners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, light and versitle To clarify it is rated for 25kN about 5625lbs of force, like all of Trango's "super tape: a weave of Dyneema and nylon." ,,,,This equalizes your gear better than anything else transferring the load to each point equally. The down side is that if one blows the other(s) are shock loaded (note that it can be set up for two and three points). I mitigate this by tying an overhand in the highest piece.,,,,The benefits out way the drawbacks for me in most situation. My recommendation is to purchase the 3' and extend with other runners if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid piece of gear. This a great convenient solution to quickly equalize your anchor points. Sure you can do the same thing with some cheap webbing or cordage but it takes me much longer. I was concerned with the possibility of shock loading if one anchor pops out but if you put a clove hitch in at each connection point as you are instructed to this isn't a problem. To me it is worth spending a little extra cash to get to climbing quicker while not compromising safety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy way to setup and equalize anchors Great for setting up any multipont anchor without guessing on equaliztion. This thing does it for you. Just make sure to tie an overhand knot in the middle loop (or tie clove hitches at the anchor points) after it is equalized to prevent extension if one of the anchor points were to fail. I got mine on sale and I'm sure the nice people at Moosejaw will cut you a deal too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is awesome for whatever top roping setup you might need. This equalizer is insane. I first used it to cut down my grandma's tree and it was a lifesaver, literally. You can set it up so many ways and have plenty of redundancy. You can tie it off to shorten it up and use 1,2, or 3 points of contact. Also, it is really solid and durable. I highly recommend this if you top rope off trees or any sort of multi-anchor points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Greatest Thing Ever I am currently living--and climbing--in Turkmenistan. Here you can't trust the pitons and always need multiple anchor points. I just got this and think it is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Unfortunately, Turkmenistan doesn't have sliced bread either. If Moosejaw sold Wonderbread, I'd spend all my money here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A lot of money for what you get This is nice but you can do the same thing for about 20 less and if you had this at you anchor and a peace came out it would shock load the other two and then they as well are more likely to pop out.
