    As light as helium, but a helluva lot stronger.

    Wild Country's Helium Wire Carabiner is perfect for weight-conscious climbers. Its hot forged construction ensures excellent strength without unnecessary weight. A slim I beam spine, a small wire gate, and a clean hook-free nose make the Helium as convenient as it is lightweight.

    • I beam spine
    • 2mm wire gate

    Great all-around 'biner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've decided to build a new alpine rack for some upcoming climbs. I professionally guided for 14 years on 5 continents, but have been out of the game for many years. Technology has improved, things are lighter and more useable, I don't have to concern myself with the most durable gear anymore and I dont have to use equipment given to me by sponsors. I wanted the lightest biners that are easily used while wearing gloves.

    After an absurd amount of research I decided on the Wild Country Helium 2. These are so light and useable that I'm using them for all of my climbing, not just alpine. Yes they are expensive and I'm not getting them for free or on a pro deal, but I'm patient and I catch them on sale and in rack packs for additional savings.

    What you are getting is an exceptionally well-made product made in Great Britain by workers who get paid well enough to not just subsist on and are passionate about their work. The biners are HUGE for their weight and work so much better with cold, frozen hands and with gloves on than the Camp Nano 22's and BD Oz's that I also have and are sometimes compared to one another. They come in a decent array of colors to match cams. They are wire gates, which I only use because of reduced gate chatter, fewer moving parts, saved weight and the additional strength of the stainless steel wire. They have a decent rope bearing area in the basket, despite being made with i-beam/h-beam construction.

    My only complaints: the gates lack snap and are a little mushy, but it's no big deal, and the nose is a little thick so they may not clip into smaller chains or crowded anchors.

    I now own 16 of them and am very happy with them so far, and plan on buying a few more to round out my rack.

    Hope this helps!

    How I rack my double alpine draws

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use these for tacking doubles as alpine draws. The width of the carabiner and the gate opening combine to make it possible to complete two iterations of the pass-through-and-clip method for neatly racking draws.

    Perfect Trad BIner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I went through a couple different biners trying to decide what best to build my trad rack with. These are my go to now. I have them on my alpine draws and my cams. Weight is good, not the lightest, but the larger gate makes up for it in ease of clipping and un-clipping.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love these...I have them racked on my alpine draws and cams. The gate action is great and easy to use even with gloves on. My seconds have, on multiple routes, thanked me for replacing my nano carabiners with these on my alpine draws as the bigger gate opening makes unclipping the rope much easier. Yes they weigh a bit more in comparison to nano carabiners but they are stronger and easier to use. Next up is replacing my sport draw carabiners with these. Love them!

    My favorite Ultralight Carabiners

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love these carabiners. They weigh nothing, they have an awesome, crisp gate action, and they have a lot of real estate inside the biner. All of my friends who I climb with have racks of the DMM Alphas. I like these better for their slightly bigger size which I think makes them more ergonomic. Plus you'll never have to worry about getting your gear mixed up on your next climbing trip because nobody has Wild Country gear :P

    Nice tradeoff between weight and size

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    While these carabiners aren't the lightest (although they're close), they are nice and large. The nose is really clean and simple, and there is no way it's getting caught on anything. I mix these in with BD Oz carabiners for a super light rack. While the OZ are lighter, these just feel nicer in my hand.

    Unanswered Question

    What is the overall size of the caribiner?
    What is the gate opening dimension, also?
