Description

Show Description

While oval gate carabiners don’t offer as much strength as D-shapes (they don’t load along the spine...), they offer some other advantages. The open radius basket holds a lot more gear, like pitons, than D-shapes. Also, ovals tend to align better with webbing, so you won’t get that heart-stopping shift next time you step onto your aiders or lean back on a daisy chain.
