Does what it's supposed to do.
Compact and durable. Dynex always seems to hold up longer than other Dyneema style runners.
I really like this Daisy Chain, but for use as a personal anchor I prefer the Metolius PAS (Personal Anchor System). The main drawback with the Daisy Chain is that it is very easy to clip it in a manner that could lead to a very painful fall. That, and that each loop is only rated to a strength of body weight, that means that if it is shock loaded, it will break, breaking each loop untill it meets the main loop where it could break, but would definately cause damage to yourself. Bottom Line: Look on BD's website for proper clipping and if your planning on using this as a personal anchor, go with the Metolius PAS (much safer).
As a beginning climber (less than 1 1/2 years) I appreciate keeping things simple. The Dynex Daisy chain is perfectly suited to use for attaching to the anchor at the top of a pitch. I have one end of the daisy chain through my harness and then can place the locker 'bnr through any of the remaining loops to make the length perfect for the anchor. When not in use, I run the 'bnr through the end and middle loop and hook to my harness loop and it is out of the way for cimbing. Sweet and simple.
