Gear Review

5 5

Very predictable, smooth and sweet

I am a fan of these draws, but must say that I started with them and did not experience any of the frustration others report- I just learned with them and find them very usable- clipping is always smooth and precise, and they are a pleasure to rack up with- the hooded latch does not hook on gear or hangars, you can fit 10+ on a gear loop, the gates do not chatter, and they're plain burly in spite of being so light- if you look at the specs, these carabiners are rated stronger than many lockers.

Another thing that sets these draws apart is the ropeside end of the dogbone- it's got a little elastomer thingy that secures the anodized carabiner in the draw such that it loads on the long axis of the rope-side 'biner every time.
