Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Carabiner These are simple biners great for building anchors for top rope/ Lead/ or rapping. I have also had other uses for them; racking, belay stations, etc.... They're NOT FOR CHALK BAGS or HANGING YOUR SHOES. (read other reviewer) They were designed without lockers for a reason. To dock them a star cus they dont lock is like docking a star on a d-shape biner for not being oval or a static rope for not stretching, etc, etc. BTW, they are oval so as to ensure a load is properly set along the spine and they is no shift in weight which can happen when creating anchors with D-shape biners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carabiner for a budget-minded slac These came recommended to me as locking biners weren't necessary (and are cumbersome in my application). I'm thoroughly happy with my purchase. They're perfect for someone wanting to build a primitive slackline, as well as tons of other uses already covered here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple is best I bought a few of these guys for "clip and leave" purposes. They are strong and not to expensive. Plus I have seen some of the gear left by climbers and if I have any choice at all, I will not run my ropes through other peoples gear...too much at stake for me to trust someone elses gear that they left behind. These guys are smooth, round, and wide. Perfect, in my opinion, for a rope to run through. And if for some reason you can't make it up to collect them, they are not too expensive to leave behind. Simple and Great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok, versatile I've used and trusted these for years. However, the almost identical Omega oval is slightly stronger and currently only 5cents more so I'd choose it over the BD. Ovals have the additional useful feature in that you can put four of them together and make yourself a "biner-brake" in the occasion you loose your rap device up on the wall. My buddies tease me for using such archiac 'biners, chiding me to replace my ovals with stonger and lighter weight designs. Slowly I'm doing this but I'll continue to carry at least 4 on my rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Versatile 'Biner Oval 'biners are really great for just about anything. I mainly use them for the tensioning system on my slackline but you can pretty much use them for anything. They also work really well for setting up pulley systems with Petzl's Ultralegere pulleys. Also, they are less expensive than Omega Pacific's oval 'biner but they're not as strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The O-G 'biner that is a jack of all trades Oval carabiners like this one have the benefit of being this most versatile in all of climbing. Use with pulleys, ascenders, or slack lines. Keep a bunch in your bag for a 6-biner-brake (look it up). Use 'em as a bail biner. Rack two for a bomber anchor biner. They fit everything, they are a workhorse. Buy 10, you have 'em forever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful but heavy This was purchased to clip my chalk bag to my harness. It seemed like it would be the perfect choice. Overall, it is. However, it is a bit heavy for just using it for a chalk bag, but if you don't carry loads of other equipment with you while you climb, it shouldn't be a big deal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for accesssories... I have a few of these as a part of my climbing gear. They serve well to hold accessories (shoes, chalk bags, etc.), but since they are not locking, there abilities are limited. Better bet is to use screwgate carabiners, which are a bit more expensive, but much more versitle
