Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific carabiner For a long time I'd been drooling over the wild country helium, essentially the dopest wire gate keylock biner around, and actually the only one around. Then petzl came out with the ange and BD came out with this beauty. I've used all, and really they all pretty much work about as good as the other. BD offers these in two sizes to compete with the two offered by petzl. But the real difference is in price. Any body doing trad knows that when it comes to biners we need a lot of them. So a five dollar difference in price between these vs. the petzl or wild country quickly makes a huge difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay but there's better This was a great idea for a carabiner but it just doesn't quite hit the mark. The hoodwire design is cool but the wire it uses is a little flimsly and it might break if I hit it hard enough(luckily haven't yet). I don't like the gate action on this carabiner, it becomes so stiff when it's pulled fully back that you lose a millimeter or two on the gate opening which is critical with big hands like mine. I agree with another reviewer when they said that the gate is a little out of line, this maybe the way it was designed but they seem to move more out of line the more they are used. They are also a little on the heavy side compared to other biners of similar size. The carabiner I would recommend that is like this one but got it right is the Trango Phase; it's cheaper, lighter, better constructed and has a no catch design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This biner works great! Now, my wife and I don't climb....that doesn't mean that we don't know what we are talking about when it comes to carabiners, nor are we the only people to use these for non climbing purposes.,,,,That being said, we give these all thumbs up. The wire around the nose keeps whatever we happen to be clipping from snagging...especially when un clipping. ,,,,Lightweight and good styling.,,,,The gate has about the same spring tension as the Camp USA Orbit Wire biner.,,,,I think I'm going to get more of these for the powerboat, Baja Bug and toy hauler

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BD's clever and cheap answer to the WC Helium The WC Helium is the coolest biner ever, but is expensive and not widely available. WC uses some nice machining to create a hooded, snag-free wiregate. BD just decided to take the Hotwire biner and add a flat wire on the nose, creating a hooded, snag free wiregate. Easy, cheap, and clever. The biner works as advertised... it doesn't catch things when you clip/unclip, just like a nice keylock biner. It is also still very light. I give it two thumbs up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality control may be an issue, but clever and affordable I bought a bunch of these and I like most of them, but a few seem to have the wire gate that is a bit off line because it scrapes on the nose a bit. I would say at least 9/10 don't have this problem. If you can spend the money you with NEVER, NEVER, NEVER regret getting the Wild Country Helium biner, but if you can't afford it, these are a great second option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very lightweight and affordable since I am a beginner of climbing, I asked some of my friends about carabiner, and most of them suggest this one to me. its a little bit expensive than BD's traditional biner (Light D for example), but I did my study so I found the "Open Gate Strength" had been increased to 8 kN on this model -- safer always better, isn't it? 8)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for racking nuts! not sure I would get it for any other use this is great for racking any gear you would find getting snagged on a standard carabiner and is lighter weight than a keylock, plus it is smoother than a keylock anyway... no snag at all vs the little metal nubs that are on the keylock. I dont buy keylocks anyway but if I did I would buy these instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great carabiner...not the lightest one though Great biner for sport climbing; the rope doesn't get caught up when your clipping in. But if you're going for the super minimalist/alpine route and every oz matters to you I would get smaller biners. They are a little bit on the heavy side.
