Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid mid- to large- sized pearabiner, very light I purchased a set of these biners with a very specific purpose in mind, which was constructing big wall climbing anchors. I don't know if you've ever seen a big wall anchor, but they're basically gigantic cluster jumbles of multiple ropes, cords, and dozens of biners attached to 2 or 3 bolts. Using large locking biners to clip the bolts means that you can clip more things into those lockers and keep your belay somewhat organized. I bought these thinking they were as large as the BD Rocklock biner (they are not), but the pear shape still gives enough space that they'll perform the intended function very well. The construction makes them very lightweight, which is a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight carabiner for use with a belay/rappel device. I purchased this carabiner to use with my Petzl Reverso. I was looking to take weight off my rack without compromising the strength of my gear; the BD VaporLock was perfect for this. The only negative I can see with the BD VapLock is that part of its strength comes from the forged ridges in the carabiner, rather then just bond energy in the metal. This means that small nicks in the carabiner can reduce its strength more then the same nicks would in a unridged carabiner. Consequently I will only be using the Black Diamond VaporLock for my Reverso and personal anchor, where the risk of it getting nicked is low.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and effective. I matched this carabiner with my ATC for belaying, and I love it. The shape of the carabiner (slight edges as opposed to rounded) increases friction when braking. The twist-lock is easy to use and tightens securely when the gate is closed. It's small size feels less cumbersome on a harness than other set-ups I have used. There are no hooks on this Biner' to snag rope when clipping and un-clipping from your belay set-up. Additional uses; twin this carabiner for a rock-solid top-rope anchor. ,,,,Caveat; It's gate clearance is smaller than other locking carabiner's I have used (I'm not sure of the exact specs).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent all around biner at reasonable weight. Alpine and multi pitch climbers will love it. This is a nice lightweight biner but not too small. I am surprised to find out it's even lighter than Positron which has a smaller clearance. I always carry a few vaporlocks on my rack as general purpose lockers. They can be used for belaying with a belay device or even a Munter hitch (although it wouldn't be my first choice). I have tied clove hitches on it and single-strand rapped on it. It's a bit hard to undo the knot afterwards but I'd do it again in a pinch. One application I probably wouldn't recommend is using it for an autolock belay device (e.g. Reverso 3). It's not the lightest locking biner on the market but even a weight weenie like me wouldn't bitch about it too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful, light, and overall meets my need I'm not the most experienced climber (at all really...) but so far so good! I'm using this with a standard Black Diamond ATC while belaying and it's been so far perfect. It unlocks and locks easily. It's definitely a good size yet still lightweight compared to other carabiners I've dealt with. The lime is kind of a weird color to be but obviously that doesn't effect it's use, only it's aesthetics. I would recommend it especially to those wanting to lighten their load or to anyone doing gym-top roping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does it's job, but the screw isn't smooth It does a good job of locking, nice and big...but the screw mechanism on it isn't smooth at all. A mammut screwlocking 'biner I've had on my keys for the last 4-5 years (ie it gets thrashed) is still smoother than this guy that I've had less than 1/2 year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great beaner for watever you need it to do I want my gear to be the lightest possible, enter the black diamond vaporlock. I picked up this beaner based on reviews and having nothing but good to say about it. Several of my buddies have went and bought these after borrowing mine. Hands down one of the smoothest beaners to use for belaying. Bottom line is that you need this beaner, if your all about having the lighest gear. I trust it to get the job done time and time again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome everything biner! This is a great biner for anchors and general locker needs. Though i wouldn't use it to belay with personally, It would work well for that application, I use a Rocklock. Though I usually don't like BD carabiners over DMM, the vapolock is an exception. It is very light, yet its pear shape means that it takes a munter hitch if need be. It's ligher than a positron or DMM sentinal, yet bigger. What more could you ask for?
