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 Job

Very light weight compared with the solid gate crabs I had been using and the weight difference can be felt when carrying a number of quick draws on the harness, the rubber grommet helps to orientate the gate into the correct position and the wire gate al

Brilliant QD

I recently upgraded my rack with a set of these QDs and I am very happy with them. They are so light you won't even notice them on your harness. The gates have a very smooth action making them easy to clip and the stitched in rubber seam ensures that th


Light, strong and good handling

Good to clip, nice shape (no extreme angles), strong and very light for a good price - what is not to like (as they say).


Light & Great

These are great quickraws for trad, as they are very light. I recently replaced some of my heavier quickraws with some phantoms instead of getting them all replaced in one go, as I was concerned that they may have been a bit awkward to handle due to their
