HotForge Hybrid Quickdraw Quickpack

Black Diamond's collection of quickdraws consists of draws with solid-gated or wire-gated carabiners, but the HotForge Hybrid Quickdraw is the only draw designed with solid and wire gates, and this Quickpack includes a set of six. The rope-clipping side is styled bright and colorful to act as a visual indicator that comes in handy when you're cruxing out and desperately searching for a solid clipping stance. The stiff, burly dogbone is easy to grab so you can take and suss out moves, and a StraitJacket stabilizes the rope-clipping carabiner for even easier clipping.

  • Black Diamond's only quickdraw combining wire and straight gates
  • HotForge carabiner comes with a keylock nose to stop snagging
  • HotWire carabiner has a larger rope-bearing surface for durability
  • Burly dogbone is easy to grab and easier to clip with its StraitJacket
  • Item #BLDZ96O

Quick, easy, and reliable quickdraw. Not particularly heavy (although if you're looking to shed grams I would go for something lighter like their litewire series) and absolutely perfect for sport routes. I generally like solid-gate draws like the Petzl Spirit Express but I've taken to the wire gate on the rope side surprisingly well. Plus I like the fact that it gets rid of the chance of gate flutter. Feels good in the hand (even though I slightly prefer bent-gate draws) and as reliable as any other black diamond product. I take these with me out to red rock and have gotten quite a few remarks on how cool the bright colors are as well.
