Black Diamond's lightest quickdraw, the Oz Quickdraw is perfect for alpine and trad missions where light weight is absolutely crucial. The Oz features two hot-forged wiregate Oz biners and a 10 mm Dynex dogbone with the Straitjacket System. The Oz carabiner's wire gates help keep weight down, eliminate gate flutter and avoid frozen gates. The Oz Quickpack now includes hoodwire technology, a stainless steel wire hood brings keylock functionality to wiregate carabiners and makes for hassle-free clipping and cleaning. Six quickdraws is a ticket Rumney.

These carabiners are really good. I was them mostly for trad paired with BD dynex slings. I was looking for keylock biners that were lightweight and not too expensive. Keylock is a must for me and I these represented the best combination of price, weight, and design. I was a little unsure about the keylock design on these, it's not the most elegant solution for wiregates, but it works well. If money is no issue, I would probably go with the Wild Country Heliums or Petzl Anges.
Out of the box the gate seemed a little stiff but I didn't notice it all one I was actually using them.
Overall, these are great. For trad, they're maybe the second or third best of the keylocks out there.
I've had these a little over 6 months now and I'm thrilled to death with the performance they have given. I use them for all my trad and sport climbs. The weight they drop on my trad rack is amazing. And unless you're friends throw up the draws on your new sport route, you'll want to have these! They are light, manageable, strong, easy to clip and have great feel to them. I've taken a good amount of falls on these and they continue to keep their strength. Only thing is the purple-ish look they have isn't as dark as it appears, so tape on the bener-to-bolt side would be a good idea to keep from confusion. Overall, very pleased with the OZ draws
These are Black Diamond's offering in the snag-free wiregate race.
--Super 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 cheaper than buying six individual draws.
--Much more expensive than other (heavier) draws.
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 Oz 'biners as the old ones wear out, and any new draws I buy will likely be these. These are an excellent place to lighten your load without compromising safety!
These are the lightest carabiners I've ever used. They don't weight me down at all, I can barely feel their weight on my harness! I like to joke that they almost float their way up the wall with me. The color difference is subtle but effective. I like them... I like them a lot.
