Black Diamond Zodiac Gear Sling Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

For the price this is my favorite gear sling when a larger rack is required. I usually rack cams on one side, passive pro and spare 'biners on the other. All my QD's and slings go on the harness. The gear loops are solid and easy to clip. It is a pain in OW when you need one side free, but hey, make the second wear it on that pitch. It has a neat little slot on the back where I carry a small knife, topo of the route and two rap rings. If you do a lot of climbing, or climb rough rock, the plastic covering the gear loops will get scuffed up. Just hit it with some fine grit sand paper so it doesn't snag your slings.

make sure you get the right size. if you get a large and you you need a medium you're screwed, you'll have cams and NUTS hanging down to your knees and it'll drive you crazy b/c every time you try to move your gear is getting caught on the rock and it feels like your belayer is pulling you off the route. So Go with a smaller size if you're on the smaller size 5'11 and under and say 210 and under.

The first gear sling I actually liked

I've never liked gear slings before I found this one. It really is a good design, more of a backpack than a sling. It keeps the weight more evenly distributed on both your shoulders rather than just one, and doesn't shift about much as you climb. I have no problem getting my whole rack on it either, so its great for approaches. Just throw it, a Camelback and a rope over your shoulders and you're ready to go.

A better tool for racking.

I've only used this a few times but definitely like it better than an "over-the-shoulder" sling. Keeps gear a little higher up making it easier to get to gear on your harness and a little closer to our body so it seems to stay more out of the way during climbing.

Good for multi pitch trad

I like the way it distributes gear weight. Also allows for a very organized rack. Over the shoulder gear slings leave me with a big lump of gear hanging on one side. A little overkill for 2-3 pitches but who cares!

Good stuff

Great for that overload of gear that wont quite fit on your harness.

Neutral Reviews:

The Black Diamond Zodiac Gear Sling is the lightest and least expensive big wall gear sling on the market. It has contoured shoulder straps that distribute weight well. The front of the gear sling has a buckle that goes on and off easily. The downside is that this does not feel very burly for a big wall sling. The gear loops are attached with small bar tacks and the clip in-points at the top don't inspire confidence if you are hanging your you entire big wall rack from the anchor. If you are on a budget, just dabbling in aid climbing, or only plan to climb a few Grade V clean aid routes, this gear sling gets the job done.

I just bought it and tried to hang it by one over the shoulder small sling and clip my whole weight (80kg) on the gear sling bellow. It held… Not that I would like to fall on it. It happened a couple of times that I fell while a gear sling on my harness was clipped, it broke and I lost the gear that was on it. I guess the same could happen with that gear sling.
