Easy to use.

By Levi

Comments about Black Diamond 1020725 BLACK DIAMOND HoodWire Carabiner:

I'm a newer climber and my runners are combined with these and the OZ. Both of these carabiners are easy to use and are well thought out.

Sticking with hooded wiregates

By Gavin

from North Cascades National Park, Washington, USA

Comments about Black Diamond 1020725 BLACK DIAMOND HoodWire Carabiner:

Compared to the Oz, it has a larger gate opening, and fits in my hand a bit more comfortably. However, this comes at a (albeit slight) weight penalty, so choose what you want (maybe get to a retailer and hold them both before you decide). I used one of each for an extendable draw (to stick with my color coding system - hopefully soon we'll be able to buy singles of individual colors).

Hoodwire vs Oz

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Full size
  • snag-free

Cons

  • Gate Kinda Stiff
  • No Bent Gate Option

Best Uses

    Comments about Black Diamond 1020725 BLACK DIAMOND HoodWire Carabiner:

    Very similar to the Black Diamond Oz carabiners but slightly heavier and slightly larger.
    The main difference is that they are thicker, accounting for the weight difference and a strength increase. Hoodwire's strength is 24/8/8 kN vs. the Oz's 20/7/7 kN. But both are plenty strong.
    Note that the biners curve very thin along the top between the gate and the spine, so I wouldn't use these for a garda hitch.

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Bouldering
      • Indoor climbing
      • Long Climbs
      • Outdoor climbing
      • Sprint Climbs
      • Whitewater kayaking

      Comments about Black Diamond 1020725 BLACK DIAMOND HoodWire Carabiner:

      I use this carabiner for hooking my car keys to my beltloop so I will have it with me all the time. I take it anytime I go backpacking or whitewater kayaking. It works great for clipping drybags in the boat or for use in a 2:1 or 3:1 Z-drag pulley system for pinned kayaks. I'm not a climber but I bet its great for that as well being what it's designed for and all.
