Best lightweight biner
March 13, 2009
I have tried three two four small light weight biners and these are the best. The low weight is awesome, but what is really nice is the thickness. They are significantly thinner than other biners. I can rack all 10 of my draws/slings on a single harness gear loop. The gate action is incredibly smooth and very easy to clip if you have medium to small hands. I actually find it easier than full sized biners. However, if you are looking for a full sized light weight biner, then try the WC heliums.

I recently bought a bunch of these biners to replace the biners on my trad draws. I ended up shaving about 2 pounds off my rack (15 draws) with these biners. They're among the lightest biners available, just a touch heavier than the Nano 23's, but the Moses biner is larger and much easier to clip. The only thing I didn't like was that they are only available in one color. Nothing a little gear marking tape can't solve though. Overall though, this is a fantastic lightweight biner that takes up minimal space on my gear loops.
Best small biner

In my opinion these are the best small biner out there. I use exclusively this biner on my rack, except if I want to color-code biners to match cams. They are just so light, they are narrow so you can fit a bunch on your harness, and the gate action is superb. I never feel any issues whatsoever clipping the rope. What's not to like?
Follow moses to the promised land...

These biners strike a good comprimise between weight, gate opening, and cost. I use them exclusively for alpine or 'yosemite' extendible trad draws. The Camp Nano 23s compare on price and are lighter but I prefer the feel and clip-ibility of the moses.

I am not a climber so I cannot speak to the climbing performance of this biner, but I am an avid backpacker who appreciates lightweight gear. I typically carry 2 biners with me when backpacking, and recently came across these which are nearly 1 oz lighter each. They are amazingly light and boast the same kN ratings in both directions as the ones I was previously using. They are stamped as Made In Italy, and have a very slender profile. They are slightly smaller than the ones I was previously using, but by all means still a full sized carabiner.
Best biner ever?

This is certainly the best lightweight biner, maybe the best biner I've ever used. It's lighter than, or just about as light as, any other, but it's still almost as big as a normal biner. This makes its handling much improved over the micro biners. They even look really high quality! I'm slowly converting all my non-lockers to these.

Overall a great biner. Truly lightweight - the lightest in my pack. It is a bit small, smaller than the Black Diamond standard D, for example, but just as strong and noticeably lighter. Holding 4 BD standard D's in one hand and 4 Mammut Moses wiregates in the other is astounding. If you're racking up with 5-10 biners, no problem, but anything more and the weight difference would be phenomenal.
