This is a no frills biner but it does exactly what it is supposed to. You can't go wrong for the price. Very light weight and the gate is strong. It doesn't bounce when you hit the spine like bent gates do.
Im not a climber, but I appreciate a quality biner to attach to my packs for any reason I might need it. Snaps closed confidently, and is not expensive compared to lower quality ones that are only a few dollars less.
Compared to other carabiners of equal price, this thing kills it. I have some cheap CAMP racking biners that have sticky gates and just don't feel right for some reason...almost like there is a delay when the spring goes into action. This thing is snappy, smooth, and fits the hand well. Colors are nice, but I feel like I don't use it that often coordination wise...I usually just grab the cam I want. Plus, BD doesn't make bad gear, plain and simple. You won't be disappointed.
These are super light weight! I don't use these for climbing but I use them to add more connection points to my Fstop Tilopa backpack. I love the way they connect and are super fast to take on and off. They seem to be really well made and have lasted for the 6 months I have been using them. I also use them for hanging my hammock.
