stylish – Metal Hiking Clips (12-Pack) Reviews

posted by chingachgook on 02/22/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The best gate construction I have seen in any non climbing carabiner. Better than any other non weight rated carabiner.
The spring and flipper at the bas eof the gate do not appear to rust.
Unusual shades of common colours.
Cons:
Gate has some saturation magnetization (it attracts magnets), but not much. The rest of it doesn't attract magnets at all. A 'con' for me.
Pain scratches off easily.
Other:
Can not ascertain the carabiners' strength.
If the carabiner gets pulled hard enough to bend it out of shape but the gate's construction includes a bar that will catch a hook in the body of the carabiner - adding some more strength to the structure.
Bottomline:
I wear a black round carabiner on a belt loop of my pants without trespassing outside the dress code of informal business attire (dark suit, necktie, dark pants).
