Black Diamond Oz HoodWire Rackpack - Package of 6 -

Great for racking cams, the Black Diamond Oz HoodWire Rackpack features 6 color-coded carabiners with the keylock functionality and snag-free benefits of HoodWire technology.

Imported.

Hood:

  • Each carabiner features a patent-pending, stainless-steel wire hood that keeps the 'biner from snagging on slings and bolt hangers

Sizing:

  • 'Biners are the same size and have the same ease of use as the Black Diamond Neutrino carabiners, but they are 8g lighter each

Features:

  • Package includes 6 Black Diamond Oz HoodWire carabiners
  • Useful in mountaineering or ice climbing applications because the 1-piece gate and spring mechanism won't freeze up
  • Anodized colors match the colors of the Black Diamond Camalot C4, C3 and X4 cams for easy identification on your rack
  • Carabiners are hot-forged from aluminum for lightweight strength

Positive Reviews:

Great design, inconsistent gates

Firstly, as far as design goes, they are about as good as it gets for their main purpose: racking cams. They don't take up much space on your gear loops, weigh almost nothing, and the hood wire is a nice touch. I didn't start using colored racking biners until recently, and I was surprised at how much more convenient it can be, especially when climbing at my limit. Bonus: they are half the price of WC heliums.

Strangely, gate strengths vary to a ridiculous level, just as the other reviewed noted. A few are nice and light, and some absurdly heavy. Poor quality control on the gates for sure. It's only getting one star off for it, as they are still at least as good as anything else out there, even with the inconsistency.

Some Good Some Not So Good

Bought these recently and just got out with them. I love the Hoodwires and was hopeful for the same performance from the lighter Oz, which I also like. Unfortunatly 2 out of the six were really difficult to open. 2 things a carabiner really needs to do well open and close. The wire gate is just to tight and it is difficul to get a 9.8mm cord through. I am super bumbed to spend alot on 6 and only get four that work properly. 4 do work well and I will eventually replace my rack with them. Don't buy online, try them out in a store for sure.
