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

If you had to pick one draw to use for everything, this would be my go to. The hybrid gates give you the best of both worlds. Clipping is always super easy and smooth. A super reliable quickdraw.

Reliable and Stylish quickdraw!

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.
