Rated 5 out of 5 by Rojmahal from Must Have Gear I love it. Attach it between both tie-in loops on every climb outside. I may not use it on every climb, but I do use it every day climbing. It must be part of your gear. So many ways to utilize this piece of kit. Experiment and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ethan G from Simple, Versatile, Light I bought this a couple of years ago and have been using it with great success. Simple design doesn't get in your way when climbing or when anchoring or cleaning. Different lengths are a huge help for cleaning. Light enough that you don't notice it until you need it. Great for cleaning on single pitch and the few multi-pitch routes done. I'm just now getting a new one because I took a slight (1') fall on it (I know I know) with no visible damage but just it's not worth the risk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jognah from Low Profile - Convenient I have had this PAS for one year now, and have put it through what I would consider normal use. It has been most useful for extending rappels and cleaning anchors. There have only been a couple times where I wished it was longer, and on a day-to-day basis it meets all my expectations. I have taken good care of it, but noticed after about 6-7 months that tiny bits of the stitching started coming undone (just stitching - material is holding up fine). I would say that this is just the lifespan of the product, but the stitching is also coming undone from portions of the Link that are not frequently touched. 4 stars for this. To put this in perspective, about 95% of the stitching on each tack is completely fine after a year of mild to moderate use. It has been extremely useful, and is lower profile than other products I have seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt from Essential for multi pitch climbing I like this better than Metolious' version for ice and alpine climbing. The material is more supple. I like Metolious' longer version for rock climbing. If you are not extending your belay device on rappel you should. Using this it is easy to extend and backup your rappel as well as to test the system before you unclip from the anchor. It is simply a better way. It is also nice to always have a way to go in direct quickly for both cleaning anchors and multi-pitch climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamRoot from Super solid. Super solid piece of gear. A bit spendy, but pick it up and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamS from I love the Link Personal Anchor System! The best gear in my opinion is simple, easy-to-use, and lightweight -- that is exactly why I love the Link Personal Anchor System from BD. The Link is the perfect safety device for building up an anchor for a top rope climb, or taking down the anchor when we're finished with a sport route. I pair the Link with two Positron Screwgate Carabiners, which easily fit in the chains on most climbing routes. This system is lightweight and easy to manage on any climb.
