If you're looking for one of the cheapest wire gate carabiners, this set of quickdraw is for you. Treat it as 2 crabs with an extra nylon attachment. It is lighter than my Petzl screwgate carabiner, but the weight savings would probably be negligible unless you dangle 20 of these off your pants or PFD.Less force is needed to open the gates compared to traditional carabiners, which can be both a good or a bad thing. On the other hand, the gates seem quicker to snap back to the closed position once they are opened. I wouldn't use this for critical attachments points, but for uses that requires a quick snap on and a quick removal, these wiregates are great!I haven't tried it out on at the sea yet, but for fresh water usage, these carabiners are holding up well. It's a pity we cannot choose the colours for the carabiners, but silver and orange are pretty decent colours. I would prefer to have 2 silver ones though.Overall 5 stars for the price and function of this pair of wiregate carabiners.
Good, lightweight biners. The wire gates are especially nice in ice climbing, they tend not to jam up as easily. And it'll be that season soon enough...
This is an awesome quickdraw that is light and affordable. They also make the 18cm which is great for decreasing rope drag!
