    Lightest is rightest.

    Black Diamond's VaporLock Screwgate Carabiner checks in under two ounces and is best used for alpine climbing or setting up anchors. Used with a belay device, the VaporLock's unique shape increases friction while rappelling with twin or half ropesand is compatible with munter hitches if you're using ropes skinnier than 9.5mm. Black Diamond designed this carabiner with a keylock nose for snag-free convenience.

    Light and secure

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    For my use, occasional canyoneering this suits my needs. Decided to try this out because I was having a little trouble inserting the rope with a spring loaded locking gate. Just be sure to turn the screw lock closed.

    Light but Cramped

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Used for: Mostly climbing multi-pitch rock routes
    Good: light weight and easy to use, function well for basic needs
    Bad: These carabiners are ridged and therefore make it harder to belay up a second using a reverso/atc guide because of the added friction. Sometimes added friction is good, but not in this case. I prefer the rounded carabiners such as the Black Diamond Rocklock which also are a bit larger around the top making it easier to handle a cordalette without fussing with trying to squeeze it off.
