Review by Keese on Oct. 28, 2007
The Oz is the world's lightest carabiner. Thats all. If your racking lots of gear this could be the 'biner for you.
The Oz may be lighter than normal, however, it is also weaker than any other 'biner to come out this year. With a horizontal load strength of 20kn this is what Black Diamond calls new innovation. This author believes that lighter 'biners shouldn't be made at the expensive of their strength.

Review by evanwish on Mar. 30, 2010
My favorite non locker. AMAZING. The nano is lighter, but is too small for my average sized fingers to clip. the OZ is really light and really easy to clip.
some people i've climbed with don't feel comfortable using these featherweight biners, but they are rated to 20 kN... they're strong.

Light. Otherwise nothing.
Small and awkward to handle. The shape doesn't fit the hand well. Has the lowest breaking force of any production carabiner.
DMM Eclipse or Trango Superfly.

Light, strong, nice to use. Strong, too - only 20kN closed-gate, but so what? Open-gate is a phenomenal 9kN, and that's the only metric that matters on a non-locker.
It's small, which may not work great for people with large hands.
