The Petzl Spirit Carabiner is especially lightweight and easy to clip on and off any anchor point thanks to the ergonomic shape and snag free Keylock system gate. This eliminates the hook found on traditional carabiner gates and makes clips a smooth experience. At just 49 grams for the straight or bent gate version, combine Spirit Carabiners with Express slings for lightweight quickdraws.

Petzl Spirit 5 out of 5 stars

I have about 4 or 5 dozen of these. Every single one operates as smoothly as the day I bought them over 12 years ago. Arguably one of the the best biners ever made.

Not light by today's new standard, these are still some of my favorite biners. I have and still use some of the first generation spirits and the action is still clean and smappy. I have also retired many due to the bolt hanger gouges resulting from dozens of whippers and lots of hang dogging. The keyhold gate was designed for clipping and cleaning sport routes. An area of our sport where they excel.

These are the gear end of all my trad draws, with Superfly on the rope end. I couldn't be happier with these, though they are on the heavier side. The gate is stiff and the nose is clean. They are slightly smaller than Positrons or Elements, and they thus fit the hand better. Everything about them screams security and quality. Arguably the best straight-gate D out there, though as I said they could afford to lose a few grams.

Best Biner in history 5 out of 5 stars

Petzl has the best keylock on the market. Smooth to clip and clean. They are a little heavier, but there strength adds to my confidence in them. They also have a little more tension on the gate, which makes then "feel" more safe, after getting these, other biners just feel cheap.

I have built my own quick draws with these as the top biner, BD dynex dogbones and DB quicksliver wire gates as bottom biner. My dream draw.
