My favourite 'binerBy: Max on 25 March 2019My favourite everything carabiner, I use it primarily for belaying and rapping because the oval shape does a pretty good job of preventing cross loading and the tri-lock gate gives me confidence that it won't rattle open on long descents. Unlike other belay specific carabiners, it's versatile and adaptable so I've now got a few in my rack. The mechanism isn't super easy to open with one hand but overall I dig it.
