The Black Diamond HoodWire Quickdraw 12cm is a lightweight, cost effective climbing quickdraw which offers easy clipping.
Fusing keylock performance with wire gate functionality, the Black Diamond HoodWire Quickdraw comes with snag-free wire gate carabiners on the top and bottom offering easy clipping. The metal hood eliminates snagging whilst the wire gate also lowers the overall weight and resists freezing in alpine temperatures. The 12mm Dynex™ dog-bone provides a light, durable connection, and the Straitjacket™ insert ensures the bottom biner stays in the optimal clipping position.
Whilst the hood may not be as aesthetically pleasing as compared to the DMM Shield, is still does the same job, and the construction costs must be a little cheaper as shown by the reasonable price compared to other snag-free wire gates.
