Just got this (dual version). Note the biners weigh 1oz each exactly. I replaced them with the little Metolius mini caribiners which are only .8oz, and can be used as proper caribiners as well (I'd rather carry real caribiners that are lighter than this specialized, less flexible locker). I also put a little bit of electric tape on the top of the biners so that the thing doesn't rattle when connected to the axe. The cord/webbing itself weighs about 1.9oz.

Hope that helps the gram counters out there. The biners come in handy if you switch from steep to moderate or hard to soft quite frequently. I had to do this type of more frequent switching on a route recently due to snow and grade variation.

You should put this in a review not a question.

I haven't used these yet ice climbing, so why would I write a full review on them? I'm providing objective info for potential buyers to assist with buying decisions, info I would've appreciated before buying.

Admit it dude, your comment was a douchey thing to say. It's looks like your ranked #5 for women's softshell jackets, maybe troll over in that department instead.
