Camp Photon Lock
The Camp Photon Lock Carabiner is a beast of a climbing ‘biner. The Photon Lock Carabiner is exceptional in that it is full size yet also so lightweight, making it a definite must-have for your rack. The size also helps it to be used while wearing heavy duty gloves, making it a really good choice for alpine climbs. It has a sharp nose for quick and efficient use with different kinds of webbing, and that secure lock means it won’t pop open unexpectedly. A great little (or not so..) ‘biner.

CAMP Photon Lock is a lightweight and easy to handle carabiner. When I first got it I was a bit skeptical about the locking sleeve, but once on the rock all my doubts went away. I've been using it for building top rope anchors and it did its job without getting stuck a single time. As another reviewer wrote, the only downside are the strength ratings being somewhat lower compared to other carabiners (though the values on the spine are slightly higher then the ones here on Epic TV, being 22, 7, and 9)
The CAMP Photon lock carabiner is great because of the reasonable price. It's also smaller and lighter than other carabiners which makes it really practical and easy to use. The lock also works great. I would recommend this carabiner to everybody!
This carabiner is insanely light considering how big and easy to handle it is. It's the perfect compromise between weight and size making it a great allround locking carabiner and a great value for money. The only downside is its low strength ratings.
