This lightweight, unique design makes for hassle-free, snag-free clipping and cleaning, plus it won't freeze up in alpine conditions or suffer from gate whiplash.

Comments about Black Diamond HoodWire Carabiner (Orange):

No question there are lighter biners out there, but this is a well balanced, versatile carabiner. I am a big fan of the OZ, but picked up a few Hoodwires because of their bigger gate clearance and ease of use with gloves. They feel great in hand and of course the wire hood makes for snag-less unclipping while cleaning pitches.


Funcionality at its best

By Thomas

from Germany

Comments about Black Diamond HoodWire Carabiner (Orange):

This Carabiner has become my go to for mixed routes and trad, not to mention they work great to hang your ice ax on when not in use. Using them is easy and they don't hang up like others. They are perfect when using slings or quickdraws. I have one attached to every cam on my rack. They look awesome to.


Sticking with hooded wiregates

By Gavin

from North Cascades National Park, Washington, USA

Comments about Black Diamond HoodWire Carabiner (Orange):

Compared to the Oz, it has a larger gate opening, and fits in my hand a bit more comfortably. However, this comes at a (albeit slight) weight penalty, so choose what you want (maybe get to a retailer and hold them both before you decide). I used one of each for an extendable draw (to stick with my color coding system - hopefully soon we'll be able to buy singles of individual colors).

Easy to use.

Comments about Black Diamond HoodWire Carabiner (Orange):

I'm a newer climber and my runners are combined with these and the OZ. Both of these carabiners are easy to use and are well thought out.

    Comments about Black Diamond HoodWire Carabiner (Orange):

    The Hoodwire is an essential to any rack. They are so lightweight you don't even know they are there and they are effortless to clip. Put these on your rack, sling them up and go for the top. CLIMB ON!!!
