With six hot-forged HoodWire carabiners color-coded to match your Camalots, C3's or X4's, the Black Diamond HoodWire Rackpack makes it easy to find the right piece when you have a big rack and the pump clock is ticking. By employing an innovative stainless steel wire hood, our HoodWire Technology gives these biners the snag-free benefits of a keylock with the weight savings of a wiregate.

  • Patent-pending stainless steel wire hood design doesn't snag, eases clipping and cleaning
  • Lightweight and excellent size for all-around use
  • Does not freeze up in alpine conditions
  • Anodized in Camalot, C3 and X4 colors for easy identification

HoodWire Technology brings keylock functionality to a wiregate carabiner and is now available on our legendary, redesigned Oz carabiner. Its unique, stainless steel wire hood is a simple, strong design that won’t snag when unclipping. The wire hood doesn’t trap debris that could cause an open-gate failure, and protects the nose from wear.

HoodWire Carabiner Rackpack is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Roomy biner Not the lightest but a great no-snag biner, color coded to boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome wiregate Bought these for racking biners and alpine draws. Definitely an upgrade from the Neutrinos- larger opening and better handling. Also look good too (not super important, but a nice bonus).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Snagfree, Color-Coded to your BD Camelots! When carrying a double rack you have three main issues. Excess weight, crammed gear on your gear loops and inability to quickly grab the cam you want. These biner's eliminate all three issues! They are light-weight wire gate biners, they are snagfree (which can become problematic with a lot of cams and when wearing layers or a coat) and easy to grab due to the fact that they are color-coded to match your BD Camelots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do the math... Super light + matching colors + no-snag hood + big enough for my big hands = perfect biners for racking cams

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I love these things. I bought this rackpack to go with my brand new double rack of BD Camalots and quickly thought "I should have bought the OZ Rackpack." I told myself to use the Hoodwires on the cams as that's my my quickdraws and extendable runners are rigged with. After a good bit of use in NM, CO and OR I decided to lighten my rack with the OZ...turns out that I don't notice much and either way I'm just happy to have the functionality of the hood. Bottom line: These biners are so easy to use and they don't snag on webbing, slings, nuts, or anything else. I hate using hoodless biners now...hate them. I LOVE THESE!
