Mini-D Carabiner

Two Styles to choose from:
Both styles are the same size and weight. The standard style carabiners (top) close more securely. The wire gate style (bottom) have a higher quality feel, but they can sometimes slip off of a thin attachment point like a grosgrain loop so be careful where you use them.

Specifications (both styles are the same):
Weight: .1 oz / 2.8 grams
Length: 1.5", Width: 7/8", Thickness: 1/8"
(3.8 cm x 2.2 cm x .32 cm)
Material: Anodized aluminum
At exactly one tenth of an ounce these are the smallest and lightest carabiners around. They are perfect for clipping items to your pack, hanging your food bag, and many other uses.

They are strong enough for almost any backpacking application, but are not meant to support a human's weight.

Standard Style (shown at the top):

Single: ($1.75)
6-Pack: ($9.95)
WireGate Style (shown at the bottom):
Single: ($1.95)
6-Pack: ($10.95)
