Comments about Black Diamond Oval Carabiner:

I've used this carabiner since it was built as Chouinard equipment and finally, after ~20+years decided I should play it safe and retire the Chouinards to my old gear bin. Not because they showed any flaws, but because, I had to face it, 20+ years is too long to trust any material with my life.
This is my go to standard carabiner for aid climbing, racking of pitons, ice screws, and other gear. In one quantity or another, they are almost always on my rack. Proven oval shape reduces carabiner shift (or pop) when stepping up in aiders. A must have carabiner. Not as light as the BD wire gate oval so I now have both on my big wall rack. With 70 or so carabiners on a wall rack, the difference in weight really adds up. I'll see how the wire gates handle the abuse before I completely convert to them.

      I like that it is symmetrical. I use these thingies to attach my phone and camera cases to my belt loops. Sorry, I'm not a climber, but these have many practical uses!
