You can never have too many Nanos. Especially if you’re the type to litter the mountain with biners. The 22 is a revamped version of the classic CAMP Nano carabiner, which set the standard for lightweight functionality. The new version has a refined gate for easier clipping and a deeper basket for holding the rope position. CAMP also managed to increase the open-gate strength while subtracting a gram. The biggest little biner on the market comes in eight colors for your sorting and racking pleasure.
- Wide gate opening helps slot your rope or anchor while wearing gloves.
- Inner space is large enough for a clove hitch using any rope.
- Profiled nose can slip into tight chain links or harness loops.
- Weighs just 22 grams, which had a big influence on the name.

Questions & Reviews
Do you know if your green 22's are dark green or the new lime green? Asking because I'd like to buy more if I can keep the colors consistent.
Unfortunately, CAMP did change the green from a darker shade to, as you describe it, a more limey green, and I wasn't able to find any older stock hanging around the shop. Hopefully you can find another carabiner that's got the right shade of green on it, because we all know how annoying mismatched colors can be.
One downside: the low price is reflected in a lack of quality control, if you buy a few rackpacks worth you inevitably get a few with sticky gates.
