SIG MMG 338 Program Series


Our friends at CTOMS introduced us to one of their close industry partners, DMM, and boy are we glad they did.


DMM is a Welsh company that manufactures all of their climbing hardware at their factory in Wales. They have three primary lines: Recreational, Industrial and Tactical and their offerings are extensive.

Let’s take a look at a few items.


This is the Talon, a steep earth anchor for use in dirt. Basically, you open the device and step on the arrayed anchors to keep it fast.  


DMM now offers cerakoting as an optional coating, meaning custom colors for specialized use.


Below is the Revolver which integrates a pulley wheel into the QuickDraw carabiner to reduce friction at loads up to 11kn.


Finally, we get to the coolest item I saw in the booth. The RPM Shackles are a pulley/Prusick-minding system.



Make sure you check out their entire line.

    Seeing as how these are made in Wales I’m guessing that a lot of people on this site aren’t going to be buying this stuff; can’t be buying stuff not made in the US no matter the price and/or quality.

    I bought my first DMM biners about 10 years ago and except for a few Petzls, that’s all I’ve bought since. I had to order them from the UK through a Canadian dealer and ended up picking them up at a show in Birmingham, UK, since I was there anyway. Now they’re available in the US.

    And yes, I like to buy US made , e.g. CMC Rescue, PMI, Wilderness, but sometimes you buy what works the best.

    Riceball by your logic, Arcteryx Leaf shouldn’t be bought then. Do you even know where Wales is? DMM are one of the few manufactures that test their gear to Sigma 3 standard, stuff like that is more important when your life depends on it.

      Is Wales somewhere near Japan? In all seriousness, I’m not one of those that gives 2 hoots where something is made, all I care about is how much it costs and if it’s any good. My (snarky) comment is in reference to those who poo poo anything not made in the US, regardless of price and/or quality. For some readers here it seems to be Made in ‘Murica or nothing, and if it ain’t Made in “Murica it must be crap.

    In the SAR, climbing and mountaineering worlds, DMM has always enjoyed a great reputation as well as strong distribution network. I’ve got numerous carabiners and a set of their ice tools. Same with Montane who made some of the earliest Epic shells I remember ever seeing. Also both have always been quite liberal with their pro-purchase agreements.
