Camp USA's Photon Wire Express KS Dyneema Quickdraw is superlight for the alpine, but the biners stay full-sized for convenient climbing anywhere. Both Photon carabiners feature wire gates for flutter-free convenience as well as a light weight, and Camp USA bent the bottom biner's gate for better ergonomics when you're clipping your rope. The Dyneema dogbone has a surprising strength-to-weight ratio, and the Karstop Evo carabiner retainer stabilizes the bottom biner for easier rope-clipping.
