Chimera Carabiner

DMM designed the Chimera Carabiner with a ridiculous weight-to-strength ratio for gram-counting climbers and alpinists. The Chimera only weighs one ounce and can still take the impact of free-falling climbers; a ratio like that beats the competition whether you're looking for a lighter carabiner or a stronger one.

Great kit.

I've put it through the wringer

I mostly rack my cams on these. They are petit but still very workable, with very snappy and SNAG-FREE gates, and weigh very little.

She's converted

I've used it several times

I bought these for my mom and this is what she had to say, "This is the first DMM carabiner I've had. To be honest I needed the purple color to rack a purple cam. It's great and I just bought 4 more to use with my slings to make a couple alpine draws. "


How does the size of this carabiner compare to the WC Helium?
