The Palm Side swing HMS Karabiner looks like a fairly conventional karabiner that has had some weight shaved off and a trick anodised colour applied. I thought exactly this when it landed here at Unsponsored HQ.
I didn’t even look at the name, as it was obscured by the paperwork, before removing the karabiner from its display card and checking out the gate action.
When you pick up a karabiner it is compulsory to test out the gate action. That is the point that I realised the Palm side swing karabiner was a little bit different.
The gate opens at an angle for a larger 26mm opening which is pretty clever. It also seems like it is also a little easier to open as well.
This is a rounded HMS shaped karabiner with a quick to operate single twist auto lock action gate.
This one is getting attached to the updated Palm Bolt throwbag. We have a a first look on that landing shortly.
