The classic Light D is still a great free-climbing biner: itís light, strong, stable and symmetrical. Its D-shape transmits a majority of force to the strongest part of itóthe spine. The Light Dís low-profile nose can wriggle its way through the small eyes of old bolt hangers and fixed pins.

Weight: 50 g (1.8 oz) Strength: Closed Gate: 24 kN (5395 lbf) Open Gate: 7 kN (1574 lbf) Minor Axis: 7 kN (1574 lbf)

  • Proven design in a utility biner
  • Low-volume nose fits old pins and hangers
  • D-shape transmits most force to its spine

I picked up a hand full of these at REI cause they were on sale.They are lite,have a smooth action but I feel like they are hard to clip.The gate opening is a little small.Great for trad.

The standard for light d biners. For general biners, you can't beat them, but for specific applications, you can always find a better biner. Twisted relationship: i'll always have a handful just in case (cause they'll work for anything), but they're not the biner of choice in any situation.

My first rack had lots of draws with the Light D. Thing I like about them is that they were relatively cheap. Now I use them when I have to leave one behind.

These biners are somewhat old stype but still work good, but there are many other biners i would prefer over this one, but these do work pretty well with trad gear.
