Gear Review: Black Diamond OZ Carabiner

BD carabiner

I’m a huge fan of the Oz carabiner by Black Diamond because of its light weight. Using a full rack of these carabiners saves my load a few pounds. I have had trouble with other lightweight carabiners in the past due to my hand size. The Oz carabiner is perfect for my large hands and gives me peace of mind while serving its function impeccably.

Yours truly,
