Incredibly strong for when you need it most.
Camp USA designed the Atlas Lock Carabiner for rescue, rigging, and tactical situations. Made out of an amazingly strong aluminum, the Atlas boasts a major axis strength of 40kN, and the keylock nose adds a lot of convenience when you're cleaning your setups. The Atlas comes with either a screw gate, twist locker, or triple-action locker to give you versatile and safe options.

- Q & A
Great locker (spin gate).
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this for my personal tether because its small, light weight, easy to use, and stays out of the way compared to a larger locker. I wouldn't recommend this for belaying, making anchors, or clove hitching just because its kinda small, and the rope doesn't feed through it as easily. Basically it's nice for attaching personal items to myself or for attaching myself to an anchor point.
Bought for strength.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Awesome 'biner. Really strong for the weight. Only complaint I have is that I have used it once for clipping onto my ATC and the rope has already taken a good bit of paint off.
