The Omega Pacific Lava Infinity Wiregate Carabiner is built for multipurpose use as a daily workhorse. The Lava also features the Infinity Wire Gate. The gate is "pinched" in the middle so that it is less likely to get hung up in other biners or open accidentally when it's dragged across a rock face. Easy to clip and improved ergonomics make it a real bonus over conventional wiregate biners. Weighing in at 34gm, it's a lightweight, All-Mountain carabiner!
