    Black Diamond does it again

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been buying from Black Diamond for years, so I stuck with them when it came time to replace my old hotwire draws. Black diamond's consistent quality does not disappoint.

    Good News: Pic Shows Wrong Colors

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love the Hoodwire, and was looking to color-code my C4's. I was bummed that the set seemed to not include the same colors as the cams, but figured I'd make it work. The pack showed up, and whaddaya know: all the colors of the C4 rainbow! The set includes the following colors: red, green, yellow, purple, blue, and gray (anodized, not just bare metal).

    In general, Hoodwires are great. Fairly light, pretty durable, doesn't snag, snappy yet easy gate, decently narrow spine (helps with racking on gear loops), and a great price for the features. Also, color coding!

    The rocks never expect you to call after

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these carabineers to match the Camalot C4 cams and I was not disappointed. The colors are great and my only complaint is that the green color could be a little brighter. The hoodwire makes them easy to clip and they are a nice size without being too heavy.

    Hoodwire vs. Oz

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

    Very similar to the Black Diamond Oz carabiners but slightly heavier and slightly larger.
    The main difference is that they are slightly thicker, accounting for the weight increase (1.3 oz vs. 1 oz) and the strength increase from Oz's 20/7/7 kN to Hoodwire's 24/8/8 kN.
    Note that the biners curve very thin along the top between the gate and the spine, hourglass style, so I wouldn't use these for a garda hitch.

    In photo Oz is on left, Hoodwire is on right.

    Hoodwire vs. Oz

    No Snag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are the carabiners I use on my draws. The no snag concept works creat here. No problems with them yet. But then again I have only been using them since the spring.

    sweet beners!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I use the rackpack with my TCUs. Needed to buy the single orange bener to complete the color scheme. But yeah these are sweet beners! They're strong, relatively light, can be used by alpinist in freezing temps and super safe with the hoodwire feature. Would definitely recommend these!

    sweet beners!
