    Better than bulky biners in high places.

    The Nano 22 Carabiner is Camp USA's lightest biner for the utmost convenience when you're climbing in the alpine. With an updated design, Camp USA made the Nano 22 lighter and stronger for this sending season. The inner working space holds the rope in its proper position, and it accommodates clove hitches and slides through the smallest anchor chains.

    • Camp USA's lightest carabiner for alpine climbing
    • Updated with a deeper basket for stronger ratings
    • Deeper basket also accommodates clove hitches
    • Color-coded to match colors of cams
    • Item #CMP005X

    Lightweight and ergonomic

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    GREAT biners. I use them for racking biners and for both sides of all my alpine draws. Never have had trouble with them being too small, like i do with the Edelrid 19g biners.

    Lighter, better, faster,stronger

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Nano 22 at .8oz and with a nice sized gate and deep basket makes this my go to carabiner for my alpine draws and cams. The small nose on the 22 makes them extremely versatile when needing to fit into tight chains or other snug spots. All in all they are my favorite and most used small carabiner.

    Great Carabiner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We bought these to replace the bulky carabiner on our hammocks. They are absolutely perfect. Very lightweight and easy to pack around.

    Great Value

      I bought these for my mom because she loves the Camp Nano Carabiners. She uses them for racking her cam. They are easy to pull off my sling which is really important. She likes them because don't want to fumble around trying to get a cam off your sling/harness! The colors are great and match and coordinate with her BD cams. I just bought her 6 more to use on one end of her alpine draws. The price is a bonus.

      Great Rack Biner or Greatest Rack Biner?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have tried so many carabiners for my pro and alpine draws. Those pricey WC Heliums, the BD Oz. At times I have a lot of gear and those bigger carabiners take up a lot of space, it's hard to grab the right piece (or even re-rack after you picked the wrong one) when they're crowded and ontop of each other. I tried the Metolious FS biners, waaaay too small for any practical use, so I found these puppies.

      The gate is big enough, they're super thin and light, they have them in every color you want (except for black?) AND they are still rated for 21 kN!

      It does take some getting use to if you're using them for the rope end, but for racking these things are a dream and work perfectly for what I was looking for. I've officially went full hog and everything but my carabiners for nuts and tricams use these, all my cams, all my draws, even my gloves use these to rack up.

      If you want to keep it light and small these are the way to go my friend.

      Destroying my runners

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am SUPER unhappy with these biners. I have bought a ton of these biners lately and have a bunch setup as alpine draws paired with mammut contact slings. The biners function pretty well, no complaints there, however the rivet that holds the wiregate in place has sharp burrs all the way around the edges. I have only been using these biners for about a month or so, but these sharp burrs consistently catch and tear my mammut slings causing them to fray extremely fast. I don't know if I just got defective biners or what. After further inspection, it appears that the rivets that hold the wire gates on are not fully seated against the biners causing the sharp edge to sit higher up, which worsens the issue. This issue varies a little, but among the among the over 30 of these biners I have bought recently, it is a common problem throughout the set. I'm not stoked that my mammut contact slings are already getting all torn up from these biners as I just bought many of them.

      The lightest - gear side on alpine draws

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I created all of my alpine draws (8) out of Nano 22's (gear side) and BD Oz (rope side). The Nano's are my favorite biner because of their ridiculously lightweight profile and solid construction. Very happy with my purchase.

      Replaced every carabiner on my rack ;)

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I did the math: for a typical trad rack (40-50 non lockers) I shaved off over a pound going from 36g carabiners to these.
      Have yet to find a fault with these, I'll let you know if/when I do...
      Light, cheap and available in many colors... what more could you ask for?

      Sooooo Nice

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've got a ton of these bad larry's. They're one of my favorite carabiners.

      Racking Cams:
      I use them for racking certain cams. Currently for my Totems and use to have them on my Metolius UL Master cams. So if you've got a ton of cams to rack, I'd highly recommend getting yourself a set of these. They'll shave a little weight and won't let your cams hang as low since they're not super long carabiners.

      Small Size:
      Another plus to the small size is the amount of space they take up in your pack for a long approach, etc.

      Alpine Draws:
      Another awesome use is one some alpine draws for the bolt/gear end.

      Clove Hitch:
      Another fun little fact is you can get a clove hitch on one of these which I don't think the other carabiners in the same size category can do.

      RACK 'EM

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Recently just moved my entire rack over to Camp Nano 22's and I'm absolutely in love with them! I was a little afraid that my large sausage fingers would have issues clipping but definitely not the case. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a lighter carabiner rack set!

      Light, Functional Biner

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have pretty much switch my rack over to these. Really light, small, lots of colors, and you can still easily tie a clove hitch off in them. Huge fan!

      If you have any questions contact my friend Jared Downs, Hes on the expert team and can help you out.

      Soooooo LIGHT

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These biner's are the lightest on the market right now to my knowledge, and they're awesome. Super small yet still very "clippable" for my larger fingers. I can't quite give these things ***** because I'd like for them to have a slightly larger gate opening similar to the BD OZ.

      Light and tight!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These things are great, not as teeny weenie as the metolious but light as flight! I bought a bunch and use them with my dyneema shoulder slings. Cut some weight and bulk from my previous biners. Would love to replace all the biners on my cams with these, one day i will!
