Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small! but light This biner is way too small for anything, except being a keychain. As a racking biner, I have to fumble with it a bit to get it off my sling. It just fits a rope through the gate, and is pretty hard to use with gloves on if you're alpine climbing. I keep one as my autoblock for rappels on my harness... I might keep a couple as bail biners because they're so light. But you know what? the camp nano 22 does everything this thing can do, and is much easier to use. So I'd get that one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full Strength - Oh ok. Bought to replace the biners on my hammock setup, but realized when I compared the weight to my ENO biners, they are a bit heavier. Thats when I realized these were engineered as full strength. I'm a bigger guy but I don't need 4000# biners on my setup. For $6, these are awesome accessory clips on the day bag, but no need to haul on the longer hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a climber... (and not really qualified to speak on its intended use), but I was bummed I lost mine in Mexico so I bought another. Really simple and sturdy for all sorts of general purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small hands I bought 10 of these to make a set of quick draws for my 9 year old daughter who has started lead climbing. They are great for small hands and work like a normal sized carabinier. I don't mind clipping them either the rope has plenty of room through the gate so no worries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Biner Very well made, compact, and color coded. I use these for securing water bottle and dry bag, etc. in kayak or raft. Distinct and somewhat unusual color choice helps distinguish my stuff from other peoples' stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hanging my hammock. I love these for hanging my hammocks. It is also nice to have something in the kit that can double for real work and uses compared to the dog clips and S-hooks that often come with such products as a hammock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome little biners These are so tiny and light, perfect for lightening your rack for long approaches on alpine climbs. Clipping takes a bit to get used to but not that big of a deal. I use these for regular sport draws, alpine draws, and to rack cams.
