Before you start frantically slapping at your freakishly light harness and wondering where your hardware is, give a quick twist and listen for the telltale jangle of your trusty Black Diamond Carabiner bumping into your ATC. At a slim 37 grams each, these tiny wiregates boast the strength ratings of typical burly 'biners but won't pull your harness and pants off with the extra weight. In fact, you may not even notice them at all.


The Black Diamond HoodWire wiregate carabiner features a patent-pending, stainless-steel wire hood that keeps the 'biner from snagging on slings and bolt hangers.
