Anybody used it? Love it, hate it? Buying my first gear sling, for my first wall - considering this one. Here's a pic:

Hove one, use it, love it. Very Comfortable even with a full rack.

It's a great harness with a full strength clip-in point at the center. I have the Yates chest harness and like it, as well.

I got the Big Wall gear sling as a gift and it is hands down the best climbing gift I have gotten from a nonclimber.

It carries loads incredibly well, very comfy, adjustable, and perfect size for organization.

you will not be dissapointed...

Had one of these for several years now--I wear it all the time (when I'm climbing that is :) ). Never really liked racking on my harness and my metolious sling (even though it's padded) always made my shoulder sore. Bought the Misty sling when I first got into aid climbing and now I wear it for trad climbs as well. After a long day out on the rock I can take it off and my shoulders won't even know I've been climbing!

Also, I rigged the back of the sling so I can attach a water bladder to it with some small biners--that way it's easy to stay hydrated as well.

Have been using one for about five years, extremely comfortable even when loaded to the max. Very well balanced, very easy to grab cams from the gear loops. I use mine on trad climbs, much easier to rack cams than on a harness. Highly recommended!!

It's great. But the loops that are sewn on the shoulders are a little too far back so you have to do some contortion to reach them, or maybe I just have a long torso, who knows And this is only my second post, so take that for what it's worth.

Permission granted… :lol: :lol: :lol: …anyway good harness and if you flexible the back loop will do very well for hooks. Ditto to the colonel regarding the reach back and for that reason, I liked the Yates better. Also with the double-looped top gear loop on the Yeats, it is a bit easier to keep the gear organized. But all for all the MM is great gear sling.
