These thin 8mm Dynatec slings are just as strong as their thicker variants. They can be used for narrow thread protection and to generally reduce weight.
Dynatec has several advantages over traditional nylon webbing. It has a higher strength-to-weight ratio, is less susceptible to UV degradation and has greater abrasion resistance, making Dynatec an ideal material for creating lightweight quickdraws.
It also absorbs less water than nylon – an important consideration for winter climbing. The sling's slim profile allows it to be used for narrow threads and to sit better on marginal spike placements.
