The Black Diamond FreeWire quickdraw has two cold-forged HotWire wiregate carabiners on an 18mm wide polyester sling. It comes in two lengths, a 12 cm long dogbone and a 16 cm long option. Black Diamond recently updated this model, with a new color scheme and dogbone.

Black Diamond Positron ($18)
Black Diamond Positron ($18)

The Black Diamond Positron is a durable sport climbing quickdraw. It's been around for well over a decade now but was updated recently with some new colors and a thicker dogbone. This draw is heavy, but reasonably priced and is often a climber's first set of quickdraws, for a good reason.

DMM Alpha VW Sport ($26)
DMM Alpha VW Sport ($26)

To address the issue, DMM fitted its featherlight Alpha biners with hot-forged solid gates to make the Alpha VW Sport Quickdraw. The combination of durability, easy handling, effortless clipping, and a relatively low weight make this draw the perfect choice for sport climbers who expect their gear to work as hard as they do.

Mad Rock Super Light ($15)

ANGE FINESSE quickdraw is equipped with the new ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock technology and the H-profile make these carabiners ultra-light and optimize their strength-to-weight ratio. They are also extremely durable, as are the new FINESSE Dyneema slings. The ANGE FINESSE quickdraw is equipped with the STRING S to correctly position the rope end carabiner for clipping, and to protect the webbing from abrasion.

Wild Country Helium 2 ($27) Best Uses
Wild Country Helium 2 ($27) Best Uses

The Wild Country Helium is our Top Pick for Lightweight Quickdraw. The unique full-size carabiners have both wiregate and keylock functionality, and are a breeze to clip and unclip. As one of the lighter quickdraws we tested, they are ideal for long routes and hard on-sight attempts. The main drawbacks are the skinny sling, and the high cost.
