The Omega Pacific Lite Standard D Carabiner achieves the perfect compromise between strength and weight by utilizing ISO Cold Forging and a smaller bar stock than the standard D series. To some, shaving ounces is the most important thing, so Omega Pacific trimmed the weight of the standard D by a full fourteen grams, yet still provide 24kN of major-axis strength!

Super light for the size and strength. Size is good for snapping onto bow and stern points of both kayaks and canoes. I did notice the start of some pitting after 1 day of exposure to salt water, even tho I rinsed them off that night - so I recommend for fresh water use only.
