The hooded gate on this biner is a large step forward, so much so I will replace all my old oz's as they often mysteriously unclip from my harness! The old gate could easily be pushed open on the rock, but this gate solves that problem. Super light, easy to use, really nice.
Solves the one problem I always had with wiregates - snagging.
These things are still plenty big but really light. They are now my 'go to' for alpine draws and spare biners, though i still prefer the color-coded CAMP 23 Nanos for racking my cams
