At the budget end we tested an Aero quickdraw too. Again there were no real performance issues, they performed flawlessly. The sewn sling was narrower but the clipping, bent gate was the now familiar ergonomic design. The weight can be further reduced by having Spectre slings and DMM have also pimped up the colour range to help them look more stylish. A great first set of quickdraws that will perform well.

Climbing Gear Review

“Watch your friends around these because they will get ‘permanently borrowed,’” one tester warned after a few weekends sport climbing in Boulder Canyon, Colorado. “These are all about clippability.” With a unique bent-gate bottom biner, the bend is more dramatic and lower on the gate, so it receives the rope smoothly and naturally; one tester felt like she fumbled way less with these quickdraws. Both the straight- and bent-gate biners are sturdy keylocks, with a smooth profile on the noise that prevented snagging when removing from bolts. Plus, grooves on the gate itself provided extra grip for thumbs and other fingers when clipping and unclipping. We loved these draws as our everyday set, with enough thickness and burl in the dogbone that you could grab them when necessary and confidently climb on them regularly, but they’re not so heavy at 3.9 ounces for the 12cm version that you’re adding lots of weight to your setup. Also available in 18cm.
