Review by Keese on Dec. 19, 2007
This reviewer gives them four stars because lets face it they are small, and this lends to some problems as experienced by anyone using small biners. Hard to rack a bunch of cramp to em, icing in winter, etc. But otherwise this 'biner is sick. Small, light, yet still strong these biners are perfect for anyone looking to save weight with a quality carabiner. The quickdraws CAMP makes from these guys are also great for the weight conscious. Perfect for racking gear, clipping ropes, or use as those anonymous biners that you always need on your harness.
It is small.

To be clear, I have the 23 gram new version (Nano23) thats not listed on the sight, and have no experience with the 28g version.

These biners are small and light! They're perfect for racking cams and such. They take up less space on the gear sling not to mention the weight savings.
They're small (like a neutrino), so they're not an "all purpose" biner. The Nano23 isn't super strong, but 20kn is good enough for me.
The Trango Superfly Wiregate is bigger and not too much heavier. The BD Oz is pretty similar in terms of size and weight.

Ultra light!
I found these (for me) to be best on aid climbing where you're not always desperate to get a clip one handed. They are just slightly too small for my free climbing clipping fingers
can be hard for some people to clip on lead (me)

"You're climbing on _those_?" isn't the most reassuring way to have your friends greet your new gear, but now that I've taken plenty of lead falls on my Nano 23 draws, I trust them with my life. If you're interested in shaving weight from your trad or alpine rack, pick up a bunch of these for cheap- mistrust in the market means that you can often get them for a steal. Perfect for racking cams, often cheaper than the BD oz, and paired with a dyneema sling you've got some of the lightest trad draws on the market.
Too small for racking gear, and the nose has an annoying tendency to snag slings and gear due to the limited work space.

When weight is everything, this is the lightest.
Too small, hard to clip fast when you are desperate. For a couple of grams more you can get something that is quite a bit larger.
for under 30 grams the Trango superfly or mammot moses. if you really want larger and still reasonably light- WC helium

Small and light
Gate opening is too small for general use. I keep these to hold a nut tool/chalk bag leaving them available if I need an extra carabiner.

Review by Slothman on May. 03, 2012
Lightweight biner, haven't climbed with them yet but full size is nice.
Other reviews are true as of May 2012. Of the 9 I bought there is a lot of variation in the stiffness of the gates, about 2 are way too easy to open and the rest vary from perfect to slightly stiff. Also the hinge point on the gates has some play...

Great trad biner. Super light, full strength biner to really reduce weight on your rack!
Not good for cold weather climbing. Very awkward with gloves.

Review by fb_829070088 on Feb. 06, 2008
Keep it on the back of my harness cause I think it might actually be lighter then a gear loop
So small I sometimes mistake it for a key chain

Review by Silver on Nov. 08, 2008
I have been using Nanos for about a year. This has included alpine, sport, trad and full on aid. For those worried about weight, these are a must have. Additionally, the thin profile of the Nano allows you rack a good amount of gear efficiently onto you harness.
Like all lightweight gear I have used, the lack of weight also equates to the lack of durability. Additionally, the smaller gate makes it more difficult to clip while trying to protect desperate moves.

Review by Delta V on Sep. 25, 2008
Super light biners. They are the size of a keychain biner, but full strength.
A little small for doubles or twins.
