    Lightest Carabiners

    Hey folks, me here again with a lightweight part question. I need to get some biners, the ones i got at walmart were the biggest they had-and they were small. I need the lightest I can get.

    If you are using the biners for suspension don't even think about using the Wally World biners. I wouldn't hang my hat from one of those let alone my body. I do use the Wally World biners for mini and micro purposes where the worst that would happen is my gear might fall down when the biner fails. (note the when... not an if....)
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    somebody posted a link to a euro site that had a 12g wire gate biner, not sure where that was

    here is a link to a biner, not sure how lite but it's carbon fiber so i bet it's pretty light

    Relax, monsters under the hammock are easily distracted by twister-playing squirrels.

    $25 for a keychain seems a tad pricey to me. But whatever floats your boat.
