The Phantom carabiners are exceptionally light wiregates which make for excellent quickdraws.

The Phantom is a small sized wiregate carabiner. Being smaller keeps the weight down but DMM have not gone too radical. DMM have said "Sure, we could have made this biner smaller, and as a result, lighter, but there comes a point when a tiny biner becomes a key ring – too fiddley to hold. Functionality is just as important as weight."

Apart from size it is the I-Beam hot forged construction that is the major factor in keeping the weight down. This design enables the Phantom to have as little metal as possible, whilst still retaining its strength, this is apparent by the recessed areas on the biner.

Compare the weight saved to another of DMMs popular quickdraws the Spectre 2. The difference in weight between the two is 16g (76g Spectre, 60g Phantom). This may not sound a lot, but over 10 quickdraws that’s a saving of 160g, so over two extra Phantoms worth. You can therefore think of it as being able to take more gear for the same weight, or less weight to climb with and for the walk in!

Good idea

A good idea and substantially improves a pulley system when used in a rescue situation, when compared to a revolver free carabiner. Down side is the shape. If it was the same shape and style to other DMM carabiners it could be used to replace a standar

lightweight q'draws

These are small and light. As a female with smaller hands (than the average bloke) I appreciated the smaller clips - so weight saving and easier to use. I use them for all my sports climbing. The q'draws have a different colour clip at each end for easy

Fantastic lightweight quickdraws

I picked up a bundle of these from Rock + Run while in Canada over the winter - in fact most of my climbing rack was ordered months before I was home to use it! Needless to say, I was pleased to dig these out of the package. They are one of the lightest

DMM Phantom review

I first bought a set of DMM Phantoms for a trip to Kalymnos. Straight away I was astonished at how light they where in comparison to my current set of draws. Before buying them I had one concern, which was whether my big hands would be able to clip the sm
