The newest line of abrasion protection sleeves, the Elevated Abrasion Protection Sleeving is a lightweight, yet extremely durable sleeve designed to protect the sensitive parts of your rig.

The edges of the sleeve are lined with velcro to allow for easy installation on your anchors and line. Simply open the sleeve, wrap your rig, and close the sleeve again.

The shiny-faced side of these sleeves is coated in a durable urethane to allow for a low coefficient of friction. This helps to prevent snags and rough surface abrasions. Ensure the shiny side is on the outside when in use!

The 1000-denier Cordura materials is especially lightweight and malleable to make for easy packing and carrying to your alpine projects.

Don't let the low weight of these sleeves fool you, they still have Very Good puncture resistance and Excellent Abrasion Resistance (they meet ISO 6945 specifications).
