Pretty much. for those willing to spend a few bucks this would be the way to go in my opinion(just bought a pair at my local REI a few days ago actually) http://www.rei.com/product/810823/ca...gate-carabiner
On sale for 2 bucks off per biner and at 29 grams they only an oz a piece! plus they have the advantage of being fully climb rated so you could use them for rock climbing if you needed to.
