Not for belayingBy: Dan on 13 May 2015It's too small for belaying with an ATC. Otherwise a good 'bina
great caribiner4 June 2014Wide gate opening perfect for building anchors + lightweight. Used for belay and anchors and highly rate. Going to order a few more
Great Belay lockerBy: Mark T on 1 March 2014Super lightweight, great profile. I've even tried it in an emergency small line rappel with 5mm static using a combination munster and carabiner wrap. Great choice.
Perfect anchor or belay lockerBy: John on 24 December 2013It's really light, but still big enough to be useful as a belay biner or the masterpoint of a belay anchor. I replaced my BD Rocklocks with these.
LIGHT!By: Ben A on 25 May 2011I was surprised when I felt how light the Vapor was but even more surprised that it was still strong. A great carabiner.
