    My Alpine Draw

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've battled between non-lockers trying to find the best combination of light weight, a decent gate opening and a smooth nose and I finally found it in the The Ange S for my alpine draws.

    I've taken apart my ice climbing quick draws and I put the Ange S as my top carabiner that I clip into the screw and I love how easy it is when I'm wearing my thin gloves that I use for leading ice. I love every advantage in reducing the weight on my harness and this is one trick that has worked.

    This is eaislily one of my favorite non-lockers out there.

    Also, sidenote: They are actually surprisingly more quite than other aluminium carabiners when they hit each other while dangling off your gear loops in an alpine draw setting.

    My standard alpine draw biner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Ange S has become my go-to carabiner when it comes to alpine draws for big climbs.

    Beyond the obvious benefit of being one of the lightest carabiners out there, I find the unique gate design easy for clipping and prevents the rope from getting hung up.

    As comes with the territory of the lightest biners, is the small size. It takes a bit of getting used to manipulated the carabiner with multiple layers of gloves on in the alpine. The size is large enough though that it becomes easy with some practice.

    If you are planning on using these carabiners for sport climbing, I would go with something a bit larger and cheaper, as the weight is obviously not as big of a deal. However, when it comes to long multi-pitch/alpine climbs, I find these an excellent choice.

    Industrial Design At Its Finest

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Holding the Ange, you almost wonder whether it belongs nestled on a trad rack or in a display case. The design and finish of the carabiner is something to behold. It is at once phenomenally light while leaving little doubt about its ability to catch fall after fall. The unique keylock design makes hung up ropes a thing of the past. While the gate size can be small for some, with a little practice I've found it to be fine during those desperate mid-crux moments. All in all, a very impressive departure from the status quo in a beautiful, highly functional package.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    these are great light weight biners for any rack, although costly and I have had a friend or two complain about the smaller opening. I have had no issues yet though.

    Good for clipping....Anything!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These guys are great! They are lightweight, Small and they are so easy to clip! There is no hook on the nose to get the rope stuck on or keys! I have a bunch of these suckers for climbing and one for my key ring. Also did I mention that there is no chance for the rope to sleep over the biner? The way the gate sinks into the nose of the biner makes it so that it is virtually impossible to open and take something off without opening the gate past the notch it sits in on the noce. So no worries about that when you are projecting that super hard route! seriously you can use these guys for anything!

    Awesome Awesome Awesome!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These guys are awesome! They are super easy to use and do not get caught on anything. It can take some time to get used to clipping because they are a little smaller than whats on my rack! Works great for anchor kits or just to have! Looking to get a bunch of draws with these guys.

    Would recommend.

    Great for nuts

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

    So this is an expensive nut racker. but it's also great for this purpose. I own three of these. I am not quite ready to change my rack out. But they are splendid for many purposes. The tiny single gate is easy to open, even with gloves and the biner seems as secure as any other.

    I bought two for racking nuts based on a friend's suggestion. He said they're great for holding nuts and removing one nut is super easy. Same applies to extender slings.

    I have a third that sits on my leg loop of my harness. It's there for emergencies ("oh wow, how come this Yates Screamer that i just clipped to an ice screw doesn't have a rope side carabiner on it?") and for holding a prussic/kleimheist on rappel.

    Go with the Black Diamond Oz

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

    Got this biner in the mail today and I have to say I am disappointed. I ordered it just to check it out and see how it compared to the Oz, thinking maybe it will be lighter, because it's smaller and easier to use with only a wire to worry about. The oz is the same weight and slightly bigger making it more versatile fitting over things (rings, larger bolts/anchors) and accommodating to the rope. I would like to exchange them for the Oz but it will cost too much to send them back and exchange them. Also, in addition, the Oz is cheaper!

    Petzl Ange S, a good, light carabiner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These Petzl Carabiners are really sick! I was put off by the single wire gate design, but they are very safe and a bomber carabiner! My buddy is the owner, but we have used them on multiple big walls and routes. They are great as a loose biner for aid climbing, used on runners, and as a quickdraw. The nose is narrow, which makes cleaning while weighting a hanger a much easier task! The Ange S Ultra-Lite Wire design cut 6 grams off the Ange L Lite Wire, making it one pure ounce. This design of the Angle S has lost up to 2kN in strength and 3mm of gate opening compared to the Angle L. Here are some more detailed specs taken from Petzl's website.

    Perfect accessory biner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this biner. I use it all the time for everything from clipping bottles/harnesses to my pack to clipping in to anchors while setting up rappels. It's lightweight, compact, and doesn't snag. What more do you need?

    Unanswered Question

    Why don't you guys have the specs listed on this product page? Would be super helpful :) Thanks

    These sound perfect for multi day...

    These sound perfect for multi day mountaineering. Just was wondering, with how small the gate is. Has anyone tried to use this on a picket. would it fit on a standard MSR picket, or is the basket configuration and gate opening too small?

    Based on the dimensions of this and the eyes on the picket itself, it should fit the MSR pickets okay, but the gate just strikes me as much smaller than I would want to use if I was looking to easily and quickly just slam a biner into place, especially if I was gloved up.

    I've never used them on a picket, but the opening is significantly smaller than something like a WC Nitro. I'd estimate about 6mm smaller. With that said, they're still easy to operate with or without gloves. I love them.

    The gate looks REALLY small and hard to use. Anyone have much experience with this. I like the idea of a notchless wiregate, but not if the opening is tiny.
