Summary

Lightweight. Strong. Reliable. What else do you need?

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Strong
  • Easy to use

This is a great little product. I don't know if there are lighter full-size, full strength carabiners out there, but these are fantastic. Obviously the way you use the carabiner is going to change your opinion of them, but for hammock camping and general campsite use, they're fantastic.

The biggest drawing point is the weight.  I think if my 30 L bag were filled with these, I wouldn't notice.  And so, they double as a means to hang stuff off your pack as you hike without much added weight.

Now, most carabiners are easy to use, and so it SHOULD be that these are easy to use and, in fact, they are.  They work the way a biner's supposed to work.  They're strong.  I haven't had the need to test the carabiner's weight force limits, but I haven't given it a second thought before laying down in my hammock.  I'm always confident that, assuming I'm using the carabiner the way I'm supposed to, it's going to hold me.

Again, great product.

As the lightest, full-service biner in existence, the Neutrino was designed for the weight-consicous climber who understands that every ounce counts. Take the Neutrino on your next Sierra ridge climb, Zion link-up or alpine experience and learn firsthand the benefits of traveling light and fast. And hey, while it may be small, you'll still enjoy 22 mm of gate opening, which is big enough for gloved hands, bulky runners and fat ropes. Lighten the load with the 36 gram Neutrino and set yourself free.
