The CAMP Photon Wire Rack Pack will help color-code your cams with the world's lightest full size carabiner for easy and quick idnetification. The smooth gate action and super light weight make these a great choice for any application.

ProLite Gear
The trick way to individually rack cams. Team the sling color with the coordinating biner color for the fastest way to identify the right cam size on the sharp end and reorganize the rack at belays. The Photon Wire Straight Gate is perfect for climbers who want a racking biner that is light and low-profile but still clips with the ease of a high end quickdraw. It is particularly well-suited for difficult trad leads and alpine mixed routes where a full-size carabiner is much easier to operate while wearing gloves.
Mountain Gear
If you are tired of racking on tiny biners but don't want all the extra weight of a full sized biner, you've just hit the jackpot.

CAMP Photon Wire Rack Pack Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I bought two packs of these biners after fumbling with my rack and being frustrated. I am very impressed with the handling, shape and build. These are 29grams each and the size of a Wild Country helium or nitro, that is to say the perfect size for desperate clips where you just try and slap the rope in the biner. the size of the biners is a plus in my book and the aditional colors in the pack (Black Orange) help me sort out the mess of, Aliens, BD, Wild Country, Wired Bliss, Metolius...ect
on to the perceived negatives. Camp has had a recall on the gate tension issue, its fixed solid tension and better QC on the drilled holes for the wire gate. it looks like they can open because the nose is not shielded. well, its not but nether is the nose on every solid gate biner ever. the gate tension is roughly the same in these wire gates as my Wild Country, BD and DMM biners. It is also close to the tension of my Spirit draws. in my opinion its a non issue the drag of the rope extends the sling keeping it away from the rock and in a fall, your body falling backwards keeps the biner off the face. unless you bury your cam so deep that the biner is resting on the edge of the crack,you will have no problems . they also have a perfectly adequate open gate strength.
final thoughts, for the money and weight you cant go wrong. much better handling than the neutrino for my big hands. if you want a step up in build get the Wild Country Helium Color packs, the Specter 2, or Alpha trad rack packs. which are only 5 or 6 biners in a pack for the same price or more

Awesome, Lightweight Biners

I bought these biners several weeks ago to go with my new set of BD x4's. These are the lightest biners you can get. This is a huge plus when consiering how much weight it added to your rack with only a small TRAD rack. Also, I love the large, low resistance gate on these things. They are a breeze to clip. The only time I can see the weight being an issue is in windy conditions. Because of their lack of weight they can flutter around. No big deal if you have a solid clipping technique. All in all, an awesome product. Oh and they match my cams oh so well!

CAMP Photon Wire rack pack

I bought the biners to go with spectra runners for the weight savings. I like the fact that they are full size. I feel the savings in weight will really help on long trad routes. I don't plan on using to set up topropes since I feel they will wear out quicker than a heavier carabiner.

A great light biner

Very very light. large so its easy to hold on to and manipulate. I am considering replacing all the beiners on my cams and draws with these. Much lighter than the BD Neutrino and much larger than the very light Mammut Moses.

Super light non-lockers still rated to 21kN, gates open incredibly easy. Use them for racking, extendables, etc.

Neutral Reviews:

I have the color coded BD neutrino's and Camp Nanos, I came across this set for a good price when I was doubling up my cams. Overall I am pleased with them they are much larger and actually lighter (than the neutrinos) but I'm not sure if the price difference is worth the cost of these biners. I don't understand why camp used the straight gate's for these as a bent gate would be much better for high stress clipping on your red point.. Besides that I usually always sling my placements long– which makes using these photons kind of overkill. Also– being a larger caribiner these tend to make your cams hang slightly lower. I guess I'm nitpicking too much at this point. They do clip nice and I do like the color quality of them, for example the green is a much better green than what BD uses.
I would say get these if you really love clipping rope straight into the racking biner, and/or you use half ropes, and don't mind spending more. If not just go with the smaller rack packs...

They match Metolius cams #00 to #6. They are light. It's all about pros.
Cons: feels too easy to open, looks and feels too thin and fragile. Yes, I understand that "looks and feels" is not about binners but about my perception.
I would prefer to have an opportunity to get the same colored DMM Alpha Trad, or DMM Photon, or BD Oz rack pack.
