This Fall, Outdoor Informer put Mammut's Classic Express Set quickdraws to the test, and found the Swiss-made draws lived up to Mammut's stellar reputation for producing quality rock climbing gear. Every climber has their go-to draws on their racks, and the Classic Express Set quickly became one of our favorite quickdraws.
The Classic Set is configured to incorporate function and safety without excess weight. This set is rugged enough to take repeated falls on test pieces, yet light enough for longer, multipitch climbs. The straight gate 'biner makes for easy-hanging and snag-free clipping at the bolt.
Joined by a lightweight-yet-durable polyamide webbing, also known as the "dog bone", the Classic Wire Gate 'biner is set on a straightjacket insert, making for fast clips and an overall lightweight draw.
Each carabiner has a high strength rating (24kN) joined by a burly, abrasion-resistant dog bone. Weighing in at only 91 g, these draws cost considerably less than similar products on the marketplace, but with the same performance.
Suitable for hard sport projects, multi-pitch trad or mixed ice routes, these lightweight, affordable and utilitarian draws are the perfect workhorse for beginners and experts alike.
For newbies or anyone hoping to build a rack without breaking the bank, Mammut's Classic Express Set draws offer a great value for any climber looking to get started. Start with 10 draws for sport climbing, and then build from there as your climbing experience and equipment needs evolve.
An exceptional value at $11.95 singly or $59.95 for the 5'er set, these draws are lightweight, convenient and highly efficient whether for cragging or backcountry alpine adventures.
