Made of galvanized steel.
The zip lock makes it difficult to accidentally open the rifle.
High durability allows it to be used where other carabiners do not withstand the load or where we want the margin of safety to be as large as possible. CATCH-FREE-Special profiling at the end of the lock, allows you to achieve the same blocking effect as the classic "zabek", however, the handling of the carabiner is much smoother when connecting or disconnecting ropes, tassels, repons, bones etc.
The CF lock does not hook and does not hinder hardware manipulation.
Material-Hardened steel zinc plated
Dimensions-109 x 61 mm

Salomon Men’s XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoes
- Salomon was born in 1947 in the heart of the French Alps and the birthplace of modern alpinism.
- Driven by a passion for skiing and design innovation, Francois Salomon and his son George designed and perfected much of the first modern ski equipment.
- During the following 60 years, Salomon’s commitment to innovative design and passion for mountain sports created a vast range of revolutionary new concepts in boots, skis and apparel and brought innovative solutions to footwear, apparel and equipment for hiking, adventure racing, mountaineering and trail running.
- Through performance-driven design, Salomon enhances mountain sports by converting new ideas into action and expanding the limits of possibility.
- You can tell Salomon is going with the “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” approach to this shoe.
- The first change from the last model is that Salomon removed the endofit internal sleeve on this new version.
- The second change is that Salomon upgraded the outsole lug pattern and is using their new Wet Traction Contragrip outsole.
- If you were a fan of the previous XA Pro 3D, you won’t be disappointed with this updated offering.
- The XA Pro 3D has a stable and secure base, with a higher than average arch support, not found in many trail running shoes.
- Because these shoes are so stable and stiff, they are great for hiking and backpacking, but not so great for trail running.
- The durability and quality are very solid on the XA Pro 3D.
- I was able to get around 400 miles on two separate pairs of the previous version.
- I will make this short and sweet as to now bore you to death, this is a quality pair of shoes that are well made and will last awhile with flexibility to be used in many different ways.
- The snugness feels secure, but at the same time makes this shoe one I am not sure I want to wear all day.
- I will update in a few months if they break in to be more comfortable.
- A little warm but not as much as the WP/Gortex ones which I got first and sent back bc they were too HOT!
- Santa Barbara, CA, at least, maybe perfect for Seattle or Fort Wayne).
- A little loose in the heel area, though I am getting used to it and not noticing as much as when I first started wearing them.
- Just taking a couple steps I felt pain and also in my Arch.
- This is the second time I’ve tried Solomon and they just don’t work for me.
- I kind of like the speed lace thing they are nice and Light and the laces don’t flop around and get in your way or undone.
- But with most speed lace systems you can’t really adjust the tightness in different zones i e loose in the toes but tight at the ankle.
- Maybe there is a way to do this but I haven’t found one and these laces are not stretchy they are like a guitar string.
- But the laces are not what caused my heel or Arch to hurt.
- I have dealt with plantar facia problems for several years.
- When it flairs up, I dial back the distance and switch to Salomons (and try to trade hard surface for dirt trails, time and weather permitting).
- In 30 years of running, I think I have tried most of the brands available.
- I tried my first pair of Salomon shoes in 2008 for dirt trails while posted in the UK and found the XA Pros to be very supportive.
- I was dealing with a severely strained calf and a looming PF flair up, but the combination of dirt and these shoes really accelerated my recovery.
- I like Hokas for long distance, hard surface runs but will eventually wind up back in Salomons when I have an injury or feel a case of PF coming.
- The only downside I have noted (in 8 or more pairs of these) is that the cushioning does not last quite as long as other shoes.
- I think that is a fair trade for the stability and confidence that they work as advertised, every time with each new pair.
- I always go with the style that has the tension-locking kevlar laces.
- I’ve owned 4 pairs and the laces last until the day I throw the shoes in the trash.
- Great support, great fit, great comfort, extremely light, very durable and the tread is outstanding on rough trails or the grocery store.
- My last pair of Salomons lasted 3 years of daily use and trail hiking under some pretty extreme mountain conditions.
- I had ordered Lowa mids hiking boots, but I gone into a store to check size and fit before ordering.
- I went out fir a 4 mile hike on asphalt and then next day a 10 mile hike on mostly concrete for breaking in.
- I love the new lace system that tightens with a drawstring latch.
- I hope they stand up to my demanding hiking/walking lifestyle.
- I’m not a hiker just like being prepared for any surface.
- Have only worn the shoes for about a week for normal walking.
- I originally misread the box and thought I had been sent the wrong size.
