With Wild Country's Astro Wire Gate Quickdraw in your rack, less really is more: more rope control from the wide gate, more smooth clipping with a skinny hooded nose, and more carrying capacity with the featherlight weight. This hyperlight micro-biner uses an I Beam back to shave weight without compromising performance.
