Black Diamond HoodWire Quickpack Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

These are one of Black Diamond's offerings in the snag-free wiregate race. The carabiners on Hoodwire draws are slightly larger than those on Oz draws, and are thus slightly heavier. Otherwise, they are very comparable.
The Good:
--Very light weight
--The wiregate's nose is hooded, so the hook is protected against snagging hangers or the rope.
--Great clipping feel, as usual from Black Diamond.
--Cheaper than Petzl's alternatives.
--Slightly larger 'biners than on Oz draws (2mm bigger gate, according to BD's website).
--A few dollars cheaper than buying all six separately.
The Bad:
--Much more expensive than other (heavier) draws.
--Same price as Oz draws but slightly heavier. It's only 0.7 ounces, but that adds up over 12-18 draws when you're hauling them up an approach or a stiff climb.
These provide all the goodness of a wiregate with the snag-free clipping of a Positron. I plan to replace the carabiners in my current draws with either these or Oz 'biners as the old ones wear out, and any new draws I buy will likely be either Hoodwires or Oz draws. If you're looking to lighten your load, but need a bigger 'biner than an Oz, these are a great choice!

I've used a variety of biners for different situations. I've read a lot of people complaining that they think these feel weak. Personally, I take these on full day winter alpine climbs where I'm weight conscious. If I go lead climbing and expect to be taking some whippers, I'll grab the beefier BD Positrons. That said I would still trust these bad boys in any environment. And people, the dogbones are JUST as strong as bigger ones from Petzl or Wild Country. Don't be fooled by the looks.

I finally decided to replace some of my quickdraws which I've been using since the mid-90s. The Hoodwires are a great quickdraw, which are surprisingly lightweight, and have a large gate opening. The actual "hood wire" is a unique feature as well, which act like a keylock for snag prevention, but with the benefits of a wire gate.

Excellent

These quickdraws are awesome. They don't get caught on bolts or the rope and are so easy to clip and remove. They are worth the little extra money compared to "regular" draws without the extra wire around the nose.

I prefer this set over any other. they are light and have been very resistant. I am only starting sport climbing but for now they are perfect.

Very light! Smooth gate. Hoodwire feature works great. Dogbone is short for some aplications. Got around that by using the Vari-Width dogbone from BD.

Baloowski at Backcountry.com on 09/06/2013

These are my favorite draws. They never get snagged so I guess the hood wire feature is doing its job.

super light and does the job!

Negative Reviews:

Avoid these quickdraws. I got them for 25% off and thought it was too good to be true. Sure enough, it was.
These draws have no consistency. It's like Black Diamond just gave up on quality control. In the set of six draws, you'll get a full range from gates that fall easily open with little pressure, to gates that are incredibly stiff to the point where you have to shove the rope through them. These have not broken in noticeably at all from a few days of use.
As well, the "clever" hoodwire design could be considered snagless, I guess. But if you look at how its made, the little hoodwire seems to be shoddily connected to the biner, with each one at a slightly different angle and position. Sure, this isn't a load-bearing element, but it still doesn't inspire hope about the quality control of the product. More importantly, because of the hoodwire design, the carabiner flares out and gets really wide at the nose, which almost defeats the purpose of it being "snagless". I can imagine that this biner will be difficult to deal with when clipping into and out of a tight or busy set of chains at the top of a sport route.
Not a fan. Black Diamond, I'm disappointed in you.

Neutral Reviews:

I merely think the freewire is better because the dogbone is thicker than this version.
