The Mammut Contact Sling is our favorite climbing sling and also scores as the highest overall, making it our recommended choice as the best climbing sling you can buy. The only time we would seriously consider a different sling is if you are concerned about expense.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Contact is that its price is not much higher than other Dyneema sewn runners. With pricing starting from just $6.95, the Contact 8.0 is impressively inexpensive. Not unlike other Dyneema runners, the Contact slings wear fairly well. They’re light, partly due to their 8mm width. In fact, I can’t think of any reason not to use Contact slings!
