When you're pumped stupid and digging for that crucial cam, you'll be glad you racked up with the Black Diamond Oz Rackpack, which features six hot-forged Oz carabiners, color-coded to ease cam identification. Our HoodWire Technology uses a patent-pending stainless steel wire hood to bring keylock functionality to wiregate carabiners without losing the lightweight and anti-freezing benefits. And thanks to the Oz's optimized geometry, it holds strong as the lightest carabiner in our line.
- Hot-forged construction
- Patent-pending stainless steel wire hood design doesn't snag, eases clipping and cleaning
- New optimized shape
- Same size and clip-ability as the Neutrino, but 8 g (.3 oz) lighter
- Anodized in Camalot and C3 colors for easy identification
HOT FORGING VS. COLD FORGING
We use two different forging methods to build carabiners—hot and cold forging. Each has its benefits and using both allows us to achieve the best possible shape, size and strength for each carabiner’s intended use. HOT FORGING, a process where both the rod stock and forge dies are heated, allows us to “move” the metal, creating more intricate shapes, such as our GridLock and Oz biners.
