This lightweight, unique design makes for hassle-free, snag-free clipping and cleaning, plus it won't freeze up in alpine conditions or suffer from gate whiplash.

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.
