    If you already have some climbing carabiners use them. If not then any of the above. The only "special' requirement is that they be strong enough to take the load. People weigh more than keys. ;-)

    I use the Metolius minis. They're the same weight as the Camp Nanos and slightly smaller.

    i use these slightly bigger than the nano, but i like the full gate over the wire gate and the bigger opening is nice with my webbing suspension, a bit stronger than the nano too, they do weigh 13grams more than the nano's but i think it's worth it

    DMM Prowire's.
    Wire gate instead of solid, so quite light.
    Rated for climbing (24kn static load)
    Had them sitting around, they work fine so far

    I use black diamond oval's inexpensive and 18 KN static load. Have worked well and are pretty light. But them I am not a gram counter at all, car camp or short short pack ins.

    Another vote for the Camp nano 23s. Lightest climbing rated biner there is. ( I think)

    I use these as well on my lounging hammocks. They are the smallest ones I can find out there that are climbing rated.
