The Petzl Nitro 3 is a specially designed shock absorbing sling that can be used as a quickdraw on rock and ice protection. The sling has six stitched 'branches' all held neatly together by a velcro strap so it's racks neatly on your harness. If a fall exceeds 2.5kn the stitching on the sling will rip as the sling opens out into a longer sling. Some of the fall energy is absorbed by the nitro and a lower force reaches the protection. A really useful sling especially with ice screws and questionable rock protection.
