Black Diamond's lightest quickdraw, the Oz Quickdraw is perfect for alpine and trad missions where light weight is absolutely crucial. The Oz features two hot-forged wiregate Oz biners and a 10 mm Dynex dogbone with the Straitjacket System. The Oz carabiner's wire gates help keep weight down, eliminate gate flutter and avoid frozen gates.

The Oz quickdraws have gotten a lot of use and I am happy to have the variety added by having four longer DMM Phantom draws. I have gotten used to the lightweight feel of the Oz biners and can clip them with ease. Having quickdraws that only weigh around 60 grams each really helps reduce the weight on longer climbs. They also help you have a lighter pack for strenuous Sierra aproaches.
