Great for racking stuff
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have several of these ovals and they're great for racking nuts. You have a lot of space to work with since the carabiner is large. They're thin and lightweight too.
good for racking gear
I use this biner mostly for racking nuts, tricams, small cams, etc. It is lightweight and can carry a lot of gear. The drawback is that it snags on wires, and that the gate could be stiffer.
Big Wallers Rejoice !!
These biners are the bees knees for aid routes. The claim to a narrower profile is not just propaganda, it's the gospel truth Brothers and Sisters! These are remarkably more narrow in profile than standard ovals, which means you can stack them up on your harness like there's no tomorrow. The difference in weight is noticeable, also. Take 20 of these clipped together in one hand and compare the weight to 20 standard ovals in the other. You will be a believer! The only improvement I would LOVE to see is a keylock gate which would make these the ultimate racking biner. The price is right, too.
