Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael Colour coded, snag free...outstanding
I bought these specifically for my camalots and C3's. They're colour matched for easy identification and extremely nice for cleaning routes because they just slide off the rope. I still just use neutrinos for my alpine draws but these would be great for those too.

I really like the new HoodWire on these new Oz biners. For a few years now I've been using these on all my "alpine quickdraws" using BD's 24" Dynex runners. They are noticeably lighter than other "lightweight" biners. I've slowly replaced about half of my biners with Oz biners and it makes a big difference.

I love the feel of the Oz, holds well and gets rid of the gate hook found on the Neutrino and similar carabiners. And it's lighter!
Now if only we could get individual coloured Oz biners.

Light weight with a fully hooded gate. What more do you want? Smooth action. Versatile, good for most applications, though a bit small for clipping. Big improvement over the original Oz. Plus they're awfully pretty.

The Oz carabiners are really light, easy to clip & unclip, and the color coding is really convenient for racking cams. Couldn't be happier with them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nathan Oz Is As Light As Gauze
After being a frugal climber for many years and transitioning from bouldering to big walls, I found my cheap choices added up in weight. With a single or double rack, you will be happy you switched to Oz biners.
I keep having that sensation that I forgot something, but it's just a lack of weight. They also handle really well and color coordinate.

Perfect light weight biner for racking the camalots. Maybe I got lucky with the 3 racks I bought because I have not had any of the problems that other reviewers have had. They have worked flawlessley for me and I will be buying more

I am really impressed by the lightness of these biners. The hoodwire is a great idea as well.
This is my go-to rack biner, and I have several packs, but I give it 4/5 because:
1) The hood doesn't cover the tooth _quite_ enough, so it still snags on webbing sometimes
2) The gate opening action is not all that great. Some biners won't open all the way without undue force, and most of them are quite stiff
If BD ever decides to tweak the Oz and improve these admittedly minor issues, it would be a perfect biner to me.
