Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from Nice Carabiner I just used this carabiner on a 1300 foot climb. I wanted to shed some weight so I decided to give this a try and I really like it. I used it to belay and rappel without any issues. The rope moved smoothly through it. It is very well designed and I will be buying some more to swap out my larger lockers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bowers from Light, all purpose biner I keep a few of these biners on me when I'm guiding for all those occassions that require a locker. At work i use 10mm rope and have plenty of room for a munter hitch or multiple knots clipped into one point. On my own time I love these because they lighten my rack compared the traditional workhorse lockers such as rocklock, Am'd, etc..(perfectly good biners btw) that I used to use. Overall I would and have recommended these carrabiners to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James from Light! The Vaporlock is incredibly light for a full-service pear-shaped carabiner. These have become my goto locker when counting every gram.
