Mad Rock Ultralight Wire Gate

This budget-friendly number is the killer in the lightweight category – it is light enough to not weigh you down yet robust enough to last you a long time. The Mad Rock ultralight carabiner is great for building a rack, in particular when you are just starting out with climbing.

Its asymmetric D-shape enables it to limit the load shifting when you have to rely on it the most. You won’t be let down by it, that we can confirm. Surely, there are a couple of trade-offs you will have to come to terms with as the carabiner is on a low-end side, but its performance is not one of them. The 22mm gate opening is bent, which allows you to easily clip it when needed.

Although color-coded racking is not the option since this model comes in two colors only, you get a high-quality tool that will come in handy more often than you would assume.
