Solid wire

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

This is now my favorite wire carabiner. It feels much more solid than any other wire gate I’ve used. I like the large opening that is not so common with other wires. I like using the petzl djinn because it has a nice wide opening, but this guy opens even a bit wider. All in all a solid light biner that I’m happy to have and look forward to using more of.
