Black Diamond's new updated Hot Wire is an ultra-versatile wire-gate carabiner. It is light in weight (40g), strong and it is a versatile size for all-around use.
In the kayaking environment, we use this carabiner to clip drybags inside the hatch and in the tankwell (we always strap drybags down using cord across the tankwell too). We also use it to clip a throwbag to straps on the deck (or inside the cockpit of a whitewater kayak) or to secure an extra waterbottle.
In the camp environment, this carabiner is perfect for clipping everything.
This carabiner is not to be used in rescue situations.
