loaded. They're not meant for long term holding.
For everyone's reference: The lightest carabiner I know of is the
Black Diamond Neutrino, an offset-D wire gate 'biner that weighs 1.25
ounces each. Online stores show em in silver, but I got mine locally
in both hard-to-loose gold and stealthy smoke colors. I don't use
them for camping to save weight, but I do take them with a hammock on
day hikes for speed and security.
