    Description

    The Lyon Nylon Sling offer the climber exceptional value for money without any compromise to strength and handling. The shorter slings are ideal for use as Quickdraws when combined with two carabiners, and the longer ones are invaluable for setting up belays, throwing over spikes or wrapping around blocks when you're out trad climbing.

    Nylon slings have reliability second to none, with a longevity that will out last the thinner Dyneema tapes. But because Nylon slings are wider and made from a heavier material they weigh more. The good thing about a Nylon sling is that they give good visual re-assurance, which does help with confidence.

    Please Note: Slings come in various lengths and colours. The sling colour is not specifc to the length and may be different from the image above.

    I bought a Lyon 60cm nylon sling to use during glacier travel to anchor me to an ice screw in the event of a crevasse fall - so hope not to have to use it.

    I plan to larksfoot it onto the belay loop of my Couloir harness with a carabiner on the other end.I know that a dynamic rope cowtail is safer in the event of a fall if there is slack in the system but if I place an ice screw at about chest height the sling should be under tension so that even if a snow bridge were to give way there should not be any shock.Because the couloir harness is so neat and packable I did not really want to leave the increased bulk of a rope anchor attached all the time.

    From what I have read a nylon sling should be safer than using a dyneema sling.It seems very well made, is a good price and is the right length for what I want.

    Not much to say about this really, its a well priced & well made small sling! I'm a tree surgery climber & use it as an 'emergency cut away' connection between my wire cored flipline and karabiner. Its chunky enough that I'm confident it will still be safe after a couple of years use & the stitching looks very good.

    I purchased the 120 cm sling for use in setting up abseil stations while ski touring. Excellent product, I'm sure more will be purchased in due course. The sling feels well made and looks like it will resist abrasion well. First Class Service from Facewest!

    Bought this nylon sling to replace ones which seem to loose their way back into my rigging bag. They are well made and feel thicker than my previous nylon sling.Colour is good as it hides the dirt.

    I bought the 20cm sling. This sling can be used as a dogbone in a quickdraw, but for this I find it a bit too wide - I prefer dyneema. This sling is perfect for clipping al your quickdraws on to for easy transport. Having them all on one sling makes transferring them to you harness a lot easier also. Small price for a bit of comfort at the crags!

    This is No 6 for me. The first five are still going strong and show no wear or fluff as yet. They are soft and easy to work with. The black colour is not great, but as I never climb in the dark I can live with it. All in all great, just like the service from Facewest. Many thanks.

    Great for setting up abseils off trees without the worry of cutting. Obviously heavier than Dyneema but better for when weight is not an issue! The 120 mm seems good for small to medium trees. I would go for the largest one if needed for a lot of topping. Can always be doubled up if need be.

    I bought 3 x 60cm slings and a 120cm sling a couple of weeks ago and they've really lived up to the test. Excellent for setting up anchors, although the 120 is a tad too small for anchoring of tree trunks, eg. for zip wires. Also, brilliant value for money, much cheaper than other makes for better quality and wear and tear. Brighter colours would be nice, but at this budget price it's more than what you'd expect.

    I Purchased a Selection of Lyon Nylon Sling. I have used them for clipping myself in at the top of sport routes and setting up top ropes. All though they are really plain and dull to look at they are really nice slings to handle, they are a little softer and less rigid than my Beal ones and tend to stay where they are put on boulders, (don't slide around like my Beal ones).They are excellent value for money :-D

    I bought a couple of 50cm slings to add to my collection and I am very happy with them. They do the job perfectly.
    I have other stronger slings but will buy these from now on as they are a better thickness (thinner than my other nylon slings) and extremely durable.
    I prefer having the security nylon and these are the best I have bought! Great value for money.

    When extending runners or setting precarious belays it's always good to have confidence in your gear and these are truely great slings. Durable and tough, I have used these slings extensively all year and they still look like new - no fluff or wearing. Very impressive!

    I bought a couple of the 240cm slings for setting up top ropes in the sandstone areas south of London. The length is great for ensuring the rope is attached over the edge to reduce wear on the rock and rope.
    Nylon weighs a bit more than Dyneema, but for setting up anchors this doesn't really matter and the extra strength and heat resistance seem more important. I'd definitely recommend slings over tape as well to avoid the need to tie the end together manually.
    They're not exactly the prettiest slings in the world, with a dull black colour and thin red lines, but at least they don't show dirt!
    Overall build quality seems solid, including stitching, so overall great value.

    I have two Lyon Nylon slings and think they're great.

    I prefer the extra wearability of Nylon over Dyneema and the width of the slings (18mm) is not too great and the black/red colouring makes identifying your gear easy when sharing with your climbing partners.

    I think 120cm is probably a better choice overall as it gives more flexibility particularly when anchoring round trees, the rough bark doesn't fluff them up.
