by ScotHfromSuper light but a bit too smallLet me come clean first and say that I have pretty big mitts (XL-XXL glove size) so YMMV. That said, I find these too small to get a consistent clip. I have done a bunch of tests/practice clipping these vs the neutrinos with both slings and a 10.0mm rope. I could clip the neutrinos reliably from the outset. My results with the Nanos improved with practice, but I still fumble the clip about 33% of the time.
This is doubly true with gloves. A fumbled clip is virtually guaranteed if I'm wearing thick gloves. The larger neutrinos are still manageable, though.
Depending on the climb, this may or may not be a big deal. If you're always clipping from a secure stance, you have time to fumble. If you're climbing near your limit, though, it could mean a big fall.
For that reason, I've decided these have no place racking trad gear (e.g. cams). It's a bummer because with the weight savings I really wanted them to work. For now, though, I'm going to accept the weight penalty with the neutrinos. I'll likely still carry a few for utility biners as well as on longer alpine climbs, though.
Having said all this, I can still recommend them for smaller-handed folks or those that aren't pushing it. Just be sure you try them out and think through the intended purpose first.

by pellfromNice to rack BD C4 setA good alternative to DMM Phantom 5 pack to rack BD C4 (from .3 to 2 or from .4 to 3).
Need 2 more colors - orange and black - to rack all Metolius Master Cams (from 00 to 6).

by PDSBANfromGood QualityI don't use them for rock climbing; I bought them for tree work and canoeing. I have used them to climb trees and to lower large limbs as well as prying jammed canoes from rivers. They have proven to be strong and reliable . I recently used them with hammocks and the uses seem endless.

by emirfromLight and easy to clipI've replaced all my biners (on every cam & sling) with CAMP Nano 23. They're lightweight, easy to clip, and great size (most biners feel bulky in comparison). If you do any trad multi-pitch or alpine routes, you'll definitely want to get these.

by climbinghalfdomefromBest for racking gear!The other review is spot on. I love this rack pack because you save money over just buying each biner individually. Sadly the Orange and Brass color is not included with this 6 pack. You can buy these colors at REI but they are sold individually.
One problem with these little guys is the size and the gates are really stiff to open. I'm not put off by that because the pros totally scream louder than the cons. What pro's? Like how light they are!! I carry a full rack of slings up to 12,000 feet and other biners are not welcome to join me.
I wouldn't recommend these little guys for quickdraws, or gym climbing. You'd want something bigger where weight isn't as important as function.
Yes I'd recommend these little monsters to anyone climbing ice, (gate won't freeze) alpine, or trad climbing.
