The hot-forged Vulcan is the strongest carabiner in the 32 grams-or-less weight class. It features a full-sized rope-bearing surface which means your rope doesn't take such a beating after repeated falls compared to other lightweight biners. The Vulcan namesake is the Roman god of fire and commonly depicted with a forge and a blacksmith hammer. The shape and flow of the aircraft-grade aluminum Vulcan carabiner emphasizes easy clipping, minimizes rope drag, and reduces the chance it rotates within a Dyneema sling. The light carabiner frame is paired with the revolutionary Infinity gate. The Infinity is pinched in the middle to create an infinity symbol - making it easier to handle whenever clipping or while wearing gloves, and it reduces the snags of other gear on your climbing rack. The reduced gate profile also means the wire gate is thinner than the frame, so there's less opportunity for accidental open-gate situations should the ‘biner happen to be dragged along the rock wall.

I purchased this carabiner to use specifically with my casual lightweight hammock that we take when backcountry camping. Its strong with a large enough opening to easily attach the suspension strap loops.
