My Favorite Draws
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This was my first pack of quickdraws, and so far they are my favorites.
--Hook-free nose, which is invaluable when it comes time to clean a steep route
--Silky smooth clipping action, on both ends
--Bent gate on the rope end makes it that easier (at least for me) to clip the rope compared to a wire gate
--25-30% cheaper than Hoodwire or Oz draws
--Rubber gizmo on the rope end keeps the biner oriented properly and prevents cross-loading
--Heavier than draws with wire-gated biners
--Only one length of dogbone (short) available in Quickpack form
While they're not the lightest out there, they are the cheapest with a hook-less nose. While Oz draws are lighter, I just couldn't justify the added cost for my everyday sport climbing needs. If you're looking for a solid everyday draw that won't hang up on the bolts when you clean that 30+ degree overhang, AND won't break the bank, you're home!
really great, dependable draws. bd dogbones have great durability, and i've never had issues with bd gates sticking. the keylock noses are a must and will be appreciated when cleaning steep routes. i persoanlly like the feel of clipping a wire gate more, but both are pretty easy.
only issue is that apparently, it is possible for a wire gate to work open during a split second of impact, ie lead fall with a really hard catch. i don't know of that ever causing a fall, but it's what the researchers say. if you can get wire gates on the rope side, probably worth it.
The best quickdraw pack for the price. Have always used this product and trust is for all on my climbing needs.
what can brown do for you- a lot!

I like the look and feel of these quickdraws. For me the biners are the perfect size and shape, and weight. Not too rounded, not too giant or small. My one climbing partner has lighter draws, but I don't trust draws that feel like thin hollow aluminum or plastic. Yeah I'll carry the extra few grams to save my life or give me the confidence to climb harder (just hold off on drinking that extra sip of water). I prefer bent-gate to wire gate because it's easier to push the rope into having more surface area. I know wire has its advantages - less gate flutter, lighter, cheaper... but with less surface area to push it requires an small additional force. And the corresponding BD pack for wire is a prettier blue, so I was torn (ended up getting both, can always use more quickdraws). But my climbing partner works for UPS so he likes this color, and I have grown to like it too. It is a nice soft glowing neutral which isn't jarring against the rock, and isn't so obvious with scratches- all biners will get scratched up. The gate action is smooth, it feels strong to catch falls. It is so great and such a good value (who would buy a single quickdraw not in a pack?) my other climbing partner unbeknowest to me got this same pack. But we noticed mine was from the 2011 batch and hers was the 2012 batch, the year of manufacture is marked on the tag (for safety so you know you aren't getting brittle old stock! important for the dogbone) so we separated them at the end. Also the tag has a small white spot for the BD logo you can mark with a color to separate your gear faster. I'm gonna stick to BD for its size and shape! Like to have everything a simiar size. But for variety, get the other colors and variations such as the posiwire, hoodwire, free wire, but I think these are my favorites so will get more of these too.
These things feel like they will last forever. Nice smooth action as well.
Seriously good deal, especially if you can get them on sale.
I'm a huge BD fan and they make quality products throughout their line and especially in climbing gear. Can't go wrong here for the price!
Best bang for your buck
Started off with this pack of draws when I was strapped for cash but wanted to climb real bad. I settleed for these and they have never let me down since!
Solid choice! Always gonna hold you up
These wont let you down unless your belayer does! Silky smooth clipping action and a really solid feel inspire confidence.
Black Diamond Positron Quickpack
Everything you'd expect from Black Diamond - super high quality that won't break your bank account. Highly recommend getting a quickpack like this for cost reasons.
Biggest bang for your buck!
I've priced draws in the past and these are the best for your money! It is cheaper to buy them in a pack than to buy them individually or buy 2 carabiners and a sling. Although now that I climb trad I prefer to make my own draws with long slings instead of using draws with short dog bones. Over all these are great if you sport climb and need some quikdraws!
Excellent bang for your buck, especially if you can snag them on sale. I'm just bummed I bought a pack right before they made them key lock and beefed up the dog bones.
Pick up a set if you're getting into sport climbing, you can't go wrong.
6 biners at this price!! Great deal
Great Price. Great Product. I'm not usually a fan of Black Diamond, but for the money look no further.
Very good quickdraws
Very goos quickdraws, the best set you can find for the price
I have 2 sets of these and I really like them. If you are comparing prices and trying to figure out if it is cheaper to buy quickdraws or make your own, it is cheaper to buy the draws. I have been using these for years and haven't had any problems. They work great and the weight doesn't bother me.
I really enjoy using these draws. I'm not a huge weight saving freak and I love the solid feel of these. I have used a few different kinds of draws and I haven't really found anything that blows these out of the water in my opinion. They are relatively inexpensive and work great.
I thought these were great and I have no complaints. Granted I'm not a huge climber but I have been pretty consistently climbing for about four years ( sport ). Anyway I would highly recommend these carabiners.
