DMM - Alpha Trad
A brilliant, easy to clip, clean-nosed option.
With a wider gate opening than most on the market - 27mm compared 25mm on Spectres - and still light weight, only a gram heavier at 34g. The Alpha Trads are ergonomically snapped with a ridged backbar for extra grip making them a great, easy to clip wire gate.

After using the DMM Phantom carabiners originally, i've recently moved (almost) all my kit over to the Alpha Trads and I love them. I used to end up dropping nuts onto my belayer as they'd get caught in the gate and fall out, but with the clean nose design of the Alpha's i've not had the problem since! Having such a wide gate opening is always a bonus too.
