Palm Equipment have recently launched the new Snake Sling.

Palm Snake Sling - A Closer Look

The Palm Snake Sling is a 4m length of tape with sewn ends allowing the sling to be used in various different ways when you add a karabiner into the mix. What I really like is the fact that the sewn loops have been down in such a way that it is super easy to get a karabiner in/out of without high risk of snagging. I have a number of pieces of climbing kit with this setup and know that it works really well.

Check put this great video from AS Watersports on the Snake Sling.

Ideal for safety and rescue situations, the Palm Snake Sling can be used as a prusik, tow line, or anchor, with the ability to be joined at both ends using a karabiner.
