As per the title, they have been out for a fair while now, I know I don't need biners in me set up, but I prefer them. Has any one here used them, are they ok? Or is there an alternative out there?

Thanks

Hi Jay, never used them myself but if they are certified and rated then they should be OK. I personally use ones that I get from Decathlon.

Thank you, I shall have a Dekko at Decathlon, I currently use climbing certified DMM ones, but I wondered how these DD midget biners fare out in the field.

As an alternative I can recommend Edelrid micro 3 carabiners. Breaking strength 400 kg, weight 8 g. I use them with my bridge hammock.

Thanks Mittagsfrost, they look good, very similar to the Alpkit micro carabiners I have for my tarp. Good price too.

The Edelrid Aranya karabiner is rated at 600kg, if you want more strength. Weigh 12g.

I also have Edelrid Nineteen G krabs (20KN, 2 tonnes), they are the lightest climbing rated ones around at 19 grammes

These cheap 5KN wire gate krabs do the job too

And cheap.

Hangers do help each other, jay. As Benjamin Franklin said: "We must indeed all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately." ;-)

I've used the DD superlights for about a year now, and I find them very good. The only drawback I have found is if you are using them to attach say whoopie slings to a tree hugger. If the treehugger is a large width, say 2", It can be a bit awkward to get the carabiner fitted, with the hugger taking up a lot of space. If you use the standard DD huggers then no probs at all.
