Leave those old bulky slings at home! The slim Mammut Contact Sling 8.0 weighs only 14g (60cm length) and has great handling characteristics to make clipping easy.


Mammut works hard each year to make its Dyneema Contact Sling lighter without taking away any of its strength. Like most slings, Mammut made it out of super strong and light Dyneema, but unlike most slings, Mammut's Contact stitching technique ensures optimum handling and strength throughout the sling, even in the seam area. This makes it ready to please you whether you're sending sandstone, climbing crack, cranking ice, or alpine climbing your way to the top.


The Mammut Contact Dyneema Sling is flexible and smooth. This skinny but strong Contact Dyneema Sling is ideal for rock, alpine, and ice. You won't notice an extra sling or four on your harness, but you'll be happy to have the Contact on meandering routes where extended gear decreases rope drag. -- 8 mm width is smooth, easy to knot and one of the easiest on the market to untie!-- Useful for extending draws or gear on meandering routes, as rappel anchors, or as a back-up personal anchor-- Dyneema(R) fibers are lighter, stronger and resist moisture and UV light better than nylon-- Contact stitching technique ensures even the over stitched seam area handles smoothly-- Each length is a different color to enable easy visual organization
