Lowe is the US importer. The lightest biner now offered by them weighs 42 g (a
hotwire is 44 g). Fader (spain), imported by Pagan, makes an offset D that
weighs 35 g. Good for special applications but I wouldn't recommend them for
every day use.

I want to do a big wall route and want to perchous some "camp italy
ultralights" but I can not find them. These are lighter and smaller then
the "hot wires" and have a solid bent gate but are shaped the same. I
bought them about ten years ago I think. Does anyone know where the camp
italy co is? My local climbing stores are no help.

Alright, the bidding war is on: the Kong Helium goes at 34g and I think you
may be able to get them from Climb Axe (206) 734-8433.

I second the notion on not for everyday use, the radius of the biner isn't
very rope friendly...

Camp Carabiners are distributed in the US by Lowe Alpine
Systems in Broomfield, CO. Try calling 303.465.3706 and ask
for Ralph.

The carabiner you're asking for is called the "33".

cheers!
