Price Paid: $24.99
I got this out of curiosity (couldn't find any reviews on it at the time). There is no need for this piece of gear. It is actually bulkier and every bit as heavy as a 21' 8mm nylon cordelette. A cordelette offers more equilization options as well as safer equalization options.
As an anchor equalization method this is really not a good choice.
As a really long sling the equalizer sling is mildly useful (you can sling large trees with ease or make emergency harnesses) but realistically it has no place on anyone's rack and offers no advantages over a cordalette.
