After extensive testing we have found the Petzl Attache 3D locking carabiner to be one of the best lightweight locking carabiners we have used. It is equally suited for rock climbing, ice climbing, alpine climbing, and ski mountaineering.  We give it 4.5 out of 5 stars!  The following gear review describes the merits of this fine carabiner.

Bruce, Amy, and I had a wonderful day of ski mountaineering on Potosi Peak in the Sneffels Range yesterday.  Our 5-hour round trip climb and ski descent included a climb of the West face of Potosi Peak (finishing on the SE side of the summit pyramid), a ski descent of the North couloir, a short climb back up to the lowest Potosi/Teakettle saddle, and then a final ski descent of an unnamed South facing couloir to the car.  It was an outstanding ski mountaineering tour!
