Mark T.wrote a review of DMM Alpha Trad Carabiner on August 11, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After a 30 year break in climbing I've recently gotten back into it. While most of my gear was still perfectly safe, I have been modernizing it as I go along. My most recent update was in carabiners. After looking at a lot of carabiners I was getting frustrated trying to find a carabiner that felt nice in my hand. Then one day I came across the DMM Alpha Trad biners and I finally found something that felt right so I pulled the trigger on them.
I must say these carabiners are the bomb. While they are expensive, their quality is what I've grown to expect from DMM. They are full size, light weight and very smooth gates. If I need to supplement my rack with more biners, I'll be picking up more of these.
