    Great for extendable draws

      These have risen to the top of my list for light, but still functional carabiners. I use these for longer draws when sport climbing, and with extendable slings for multi-pitch routes, sport or trad. At 30 grams, not super light, but still large enough to handle easily for my size medium-large (male) hands. Very smooth handling and low-snag for a regular notch wiregate carabiner. Extra material on nose lessens the chance of gate getting rubbed open. The three little ribs add a touch of additional grip. The terminal ends of the wiregate are flush, preventing sling snag that I've experienced with other wiregatge carabiners (e.g., CAMP Nano, BD Hoodwire). These are clearly designed for narrow Dyneema slings/dogbones, so not really suited for most nylon types on the small end. Weight on my scale is 30.2 grams. Rope-bearing width is 8.2mm. Due to smaller size and less aluminum, best for use where the rope isn't running under tension if you want to lengthen product lifespan - I generally don't use these for the first protection point, or for setting up top ropes. WIld Country Astro is very similar, and a good choice too. Considering cost, I think these are the best value for my intended use.

      Great for extendable draws

      Great Little Biner

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is the perfect little carabiner for whatever you need. I got it to attach my chalk bag to my harness for climbing and it is perfect!

      Must have.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've got a good handful of these that I use for everything from climbing to keychains to clipping my dogs leash to his collar.

      Great keybiner

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Replaced an unreliable keylock carabiner after I lost two sets of keys. Works as expected. This is about as large a carabiner as you want for this purpose.

      Great for alpine draws

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I initially ordered a couple of these carabiners to try out and to make an alpine draw. I didn't realize how small they were going to be until I received them, and they were too small to use on both ends of my alpine draws. However, I did end up using them for the bolt end of the draws and they work fantastic for that! I ended up ordering a few more because I really liked how easily they clip and they are really great for clipping into gear.

      Works fine

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

      Its a bit small for my taste but quality and functionality seem to be fine. I probably won't buy anymore strictly because I like a bigger size carabiner for my alpine draws, but if you don't mind the size this is a great buy.

      Quality Biner

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Trango Phase is a neat little biner that packs a punch with its strength at such a small size and price point. You can rack cams with them but I tend to use them in an alpine draw configuration. The basket of the biner is fairly large given its tiny size which makes it awesome for clipping all the nuts and bolts you might find on a climb. The colors look really pretty and the anondized finish looks like they'll last quite some time. Definitely plan on picking some more up!

      Great biner

        Bought a few of these for various purposes. These biners are nice, cheap, and come in a variety of colors. It's also nice to have biners that aren't exactly the same as everyone else's!

        Great cheap biner

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        They're cheap, especially when on sale. They're light. They're easy to clip. They come in tons of different colors. They don't snag on bolts or slings easily. They're sweet. Nuff said.

        Pretty and light

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I got some of these for alpine draws. And they're exactly what you'd want them to be. Priced well, lightweight, and comes in whatever pretty color you need.

        Good Performance

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I got these biners to use as the "bolt end" of alpine draws. They are super light weight and strong, and the gate action is really springy and quick, without begin difficult to push. Very happy with them

        i like the bent gate

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

        i like the bent gate, the rope snugs into the gate nicely and only requires a little more pressure to open the gate and slip the rope into the basket, it feels automatically guided, a natural entry.

        compared to some straight gated carabiners i have, this one feels polished in the construction of the frame, smoother and more comfortable to handle, i replaced a couple on the rope end of a set of draws i bought, the Omega Pacific Dash Dirtbag Draw Rack Pack - 6 Pack.

        i give it a 4 star rating instead of a five because of the hook nose, which kinda snags the rope, not much of a problem when putting the rope in, but if for some reason if i need to take it out, the rounded nose design is much a smoother action, but i knew what i was getting when i ordered these so i feel kinda guilty deducting points for that.

        the hook on this design is much smoother then my other carabiners which are also hooked but much more blocky with pointier edges.

        Great for Alpine Draws

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have a bunch of these for my alpine draws and my Phase draws.

        Gate Size:
        I've had others complain about clipping the Phase biner but that is because they use huge full size carabiners rather than mid sized ones like this. I personally like the gate size and think it's easy to clip.

        Biner Size:
        I can't do the super small carabiners (CAMP USA Nano 22's or the Metolius F.S. Mini's) on my cams. I like a mid sized carabiner like the Trango Phase's or the Neutrino's.

        Color Coding:
        On the colored ones, I match these up with my sets of Master Cams and love the color coding.

        Weight:
        At 1.05oz these are on par with the weight of most other carabiners. Not super heavy but also not the lightest carabiners ever (think of the CAMP USA Nano 22's).

        Pairing:
        For the colored version, I pair these up with my Master Cams since the 8 color match up. I prefer these for my Master Cams and Neutrinos for my C4's. This way I can easier spot a biner and know what type of cam it goes with as well as what size cam I'm looking at or grabbing.

        Shoot me an email if you have any questions about these carabiners or any other gear!

        Are these Trango Phase biners large enough to clip with gloves?

        Trango's website shows the latest version has a 23mm gate. not sure about this exact carabiner. They are kinda small, i have these on alpine draws. I like dmm alphas and camp photons for their fat gates and light weight for winter use.

        Just curious - I just purchased a set of these and was wondering the claimed rating on them for failure. Does anyone know that amount of weight?
