The Omega Pacific ISO Oval is intended to make up the meat of a climbing rack. The classic oval shape make is a versitale biner. It prevents shifting of loaded biners in aid applications and still performs in free climbing.

Omega's ISO Cold Forged Process creates an extraordinary strength to weight ratio.

The hooded gate allows for a smoother rope-bearing surface, a tapered nose for increased strength and spin rivets for a smooth, snag-free gate surface.

Voted 5/5

I love these biners. They defiantely make up the meat of my rack as I own more than 200.

I know that there are some nifty little lightweight biners out there but I can't afford 6 to 8 bucks for the number of biners that I use. 4.95 is a ton more attractive.

These things take a beating and still perform. I've never had any problems with clipping. The oval shape prevents sudden shifts when loading these biners while aid climbing.

And did I mention the price.
