It sucks to leave quickdraws behind when you might need them, but it also sucks to climb with a heavy rack. Rack up with the DMM Alpha Trad Quickdraw. This draw's I-Beam construction is both strong and light, which helps when you're climbing with anything bigger than a double rack. Both carabiners have a bent wire gate for excellent clipping whether you're climbing rock or ice, an ergonomic, grippy shape that helps you clip even with gloves on, and a clean nose that prevents snagging when you clean the route. They also have a deeper rope basket with a generous 8. 5mm rope radius to help you stay safe up there. And Dynatec made sure the sling remains durable for multiple seasons.
