Lightest is rightest.
Gram-counting climbers and alpinists are salivating over the Nineteen G Carabiner because it's Edelrid's lightest wiregate biner available, and perhaps the lightest carabiner ever. Don't sketch over its strength, for its 22kN strength rating proves that the Nineteen G can take the impact like the rest of them.

- Q & A
Actually very usable and light as heck!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Was hesitant from seeing how small they were but once I got my hands on them and tried a few out, was pleasantly surprised. I use them for the bolt/gear end of my alpine draws. I've taken them on 3 multipitch routes so far and neither I nor my partners have complained or had issues at all w/ size.
They'd be a bit small for rope end so I use DMM alpha lights for that which are larger, but light. 19g's are also good for other stuff like belay gloves, chalk bag etc or for a few random just in case extras w/o the weight penalty.
Ya, 19 grams, no kidding.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These things are light!!! I've used a couple to build alpine draws and they are awesome and keeping it light and low profile.
I've also taken a fall on one of these said draws and I'm excited to say it held like any other solid biner.
