Not for belaying

13 May 2015
It's too small for belaying with an ATC. Otherwise a good 'bina

great caribiner

Wide gate opening perfect for building anchors + lightweight. Used for belay and anchors and highly rate. Going to order a few more

Great Belay locker

Super 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 locker

It'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.

I was surprised when I felt how light the Vapor was but even more surprised that it was still strong. A great carabiner.
