as anyone can tell you, the better your gear matches, the harder you climb. in all seriousness though, when you're pumped and looking to place a piece quickly, it's nice to look down to your harness and be able to grab a carabiner by color and know exactly what size cam is going to be attached.
the size of these is superb. they're very lightweight but not so small that i have a hard time manipulating the rope with them.
superb companions to any rack.
FYI the nose width is ~11.7mm - same as HoodWire (according to Eric @ BD). Internal length (long axis) is also the same - ~95.25mm.
These are just great, they just go very well with your cams and can take off some grams. extremely light
