Strength without the weight
Verified Buyer Reviewed by hikeeba from wisconsin on Wednesday, June 28, 2017
I bought a few of these to carry on my PFD for use with my towing rig. I was surprised with their light weight; even lighter than the slightly smaller Metolius Mini Jet II biners I had. I took them out of my PFD and took them camping this weekend for the maiden outing of our new tree tent. I used them in a couple block and tackle and load release hitches with 8mm cordage, and they worked great. I'd prefer a locking biner for any life safety application, but would certainly used one of these in a pinch if I had to. I can't get over the light weight, and would like to order more so I can keep several dedicated sets with the tent, my paddling gear, and with our recreational tree climbing gear.
