What can I say, its a great compact carabiner. Smooth action and a perfect finish that is ready to be ruined on your first day at the crag. The colors for these biners really stand out. Black Diamond makes a great product that I have no reservations trusting my life to.
"Best bang for the buck value and weight wise."
Want cheap, light, color coded racking biners then get some of these. Not too heavy, not too small, and are wiregate. Can't get better at this price point. Now if you want a snagless or lighter option the rackpack Hoodwires and Oz's are also amazing (just more expensive)
"GET SOME. Seriously though, can't be beat for the price."
There's a slew of carabiners out there. If you're like me and a broke college kid chasing the dream, this does the job perfectly. I have 2 of them and the colors are wicked, solid construction that proved to hold up to abuse and hold its own right next to other more expensive 'biners. Enjoy another solid product from Black Diamond.

So this is a really solid wiregate carabiner. Blackdiamond never breaks the bank which is super nice. Plus the action on the gate is like buttery smooth. I am one of those people who constantly has to have their hands moving, you know what they say "idle hands are the Devils playground", so I end up just clicking this thing constantly. I mean I have probably put it through like a zillion open close cycles (and did it way more efficiently than if some robot tester did it) and it is still perfect.
As always Black Diamond has provided a solid piece of equipment. These biners also have taken the pain and agony out of trying to color match biners with protection or stocking up on hundres of gear tape, when all you need is a few, and then applying it to your gear. If you go with Camalots as your choice of cams, then it only makes sense to accompany them with these biners.
I haven't used these for anything clutch, but they do the job for light applications (clipping things to my harness, clipping things together, etc.) They're fairly light, so I always keep a few around just in case....
After buying two to match my BD runners, I bought the rest of the colors to complete the set. Are great for clipping climbing gear to packs or a harness. Sturdy, lightweight, and you get to pick which colors you want...buy some already!
Bottom line: Great biners. Good price, good quality, good gear. Best part I like about this product is that Moosejaw lets you choose the colors. This was my biggest beef with REI, forget assorted, I like my rack to be organized and Moosejaw lets me do that by picking the color biner I want.
I have used many other wire gate carabiners and these are by far the best. Not only are they well weighted but they also are a really great size. My favorite thing is I can buy the individually by color.
