The Metolius FS Mini Quickdraw is certainly the smallest quickdraw available - it is also unsurprisingly one of the lightest. Whilst we wouldn't recommend these for a day out tradding at Stanage, or bolt clipping in the Costa Blanca, for alpine climbing and big wall climbing they could seriously cut down on the weight and bulk of your rack.
As with a lot of specialised gear they may take a bit of getting used to as the clipping action isn't the same as a standard carabiner (there isn't room to draw your finger and the rope through the gate). For those looking to cut their gear down to the minimum though, the FS Mini should certainly be worthy of consideration.
