A Quickdraw comprises of two clip or wire type karabiners connected together with a length of dynema sling.  Quickdraws are used to connect the rope to either the placed protection in trad climbing or a fixed bolt in sports climbing.

Quickdraw’s are sold in different lengths (the length of dynema between the two karabiners) and come in different weights.  Multipacks of Quickdraws are available if you wish to purchase these.  Bulk buying often works out cheaper than buying them individually, but we would recommend you talk with your local climbing store or online retailer to discuss the type of climbing you intend to do before making a purchase.
