We stopped by the American Alpine Institute to learn more about their Guides Choice Awards and took some video about why certain gear was award-winning. Generally speaking, the awards are given to gear that balances super durable and lightweight, while still holding on to essential features to get the job done right.

Watch Jeff Voigt show and tell why Petzl’s Attache 3D Carabiner won a Guides Choice Award.
