Black Diamond's FreeWire Quickdraw has two light wire gate carabiners and an inexpensive price tag to keep your harness light and your wallet heavy. The HotWire carabiners reduce flutter as well as weight, and the polyester sling has a StraitJacket to stabilize the rope-clipping biner for even more convenience.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I needed it to do its job and it does it with ease. I don't have anything bad to say about it plus the color is great.
Simple. Elegant. Effective.
What more can I say? This BD quickdraw checks all my boxes. Cheap, quality, and Orange. These are a quality piece, easy to use, and long lasting.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
New to sport and got this set for a beginner. So far they have worked great. Easy to clip and my climbing partner that is far more seasoned enjoys using my draws more than his high dollar set.
More than adequate
For the price, cannot be beat. I've used these primarily as a novice sport climber with a couple dozen extra pounds on my frame. With that in mind, a few ounces saved on my harness will not come into play at all.
The carabiners feel nice, dogbone sturdy and they have held up very well over the course of many sport routes. If you are looking for elite, lightweight and trendy colors, than look elsewhere, but if you are a normal person looking for the best inexpensive draws to help send that mid-evil 5.9 you've been projecting for 2 weeks, than I don't believe a better draw can be found.
Enjoy your day and climb on
Great price, gets the job done
These draws are pretty hard to beat on the affordability scale. They work well, with one slight drawback. The loop in the webbing on the wall side is quite large, at least on the 18cm, causing it to be pretty bulky. This gives the draws a kind of awkward handling coming off your gear loops sometimes. Despite this one shortcoming, these draws are a great deal, and certainly get the job done.
