Petzl Annau Slings

£4.80-£9.60 www.petzl.com

These slings are great for setting up a belay or for extending an anchor point. Whether you wear them bandolino style around your chest, or stow them on your harness with a carabiner, they are easy to deploy when you need them. Each size (60cm, 80cm, 120cm, 150cm) is colour coded meaning you know exactly which one you are using, reducing time wastage. The smooth polyester helps prevent them from becoming knotted when being deployed, although the longer ones are prone to some tangles if you don’t stow them tidily.

► Verdict: A lightweight but strong sling for many situations.

► Best for: Anchors, belays, extenders for quickdraws, cows tails…the list goes on.
