Two gates for the price of one.

The two-sided Nite Ize S-BINER lets you clip your keys, water bottle, or whatever you need to your pack, belt loop, or wherever. Aluminum construction makes the Nite Ize S-BINER tough enough to withstand tons of abuse, so you don't snap it like you did with your plastic one. *Not for climbing use.

Multi-Use Master

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use a #2 for my keyring, and used to use a #4 (I think, since I lost the Nalgene it was on). These things are indestructible, and a little different from the everyday drab spiral key rings. Awesome.

Great piece for attaching gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great for attaching gear to your pack or in the tent. Very easy to use and very durable. I have quite a few of these and have yet to be disappointed.

Great for a keychain!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use one of these little guys for my keychain, and it's perfect! Can easily clip the keychain to things without worrying about the keys falling off because of the two separate gates. Nice and light, seems very durable. I could see them being useful in the backcountry, though I usually use regular biners for that, maybe as I loose those I'll replace them with these.

It works

I have these in a variety of sizes I think my favorite is the #3 it works for a variety of purposes . Not to big not too small. I have had it for a couple of months and so far it hasn't shown any signs of wear.

Nite Ize #2 S-Biner Rocks!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have several of these 'biners and my favorite is the #2 (10 lb capacity). The #2 weighs 0.30 oz and I use it as a zipper pull, as a clip for hanging bear bags, to fasten a lamp to tent ceiling and more. The design and operation is so simple - and the function is so useful - that Backpacker magazine gave it an Editors' Choice Award when it came out in 2008.

I use these for everything from quick release key chains to quick clips for attaching misc. items to my pack on weekend trips. They're lightweight, durable and strong.

Clip for powder cords

If we ever get any snow in California I'll try these out. I'm planning to use them to clip my powder cords to my bindings. Its quicker and easier than tying and untying but I'm not sure whether they'll stay on. After burying a ski a few seasons ago I always use powder cords in deep snow.

Love Em!!!

I just recently bought these in multiple sizes primaraly to clip my work ID to a lanyard and jacket. These are great! they are more attractive than a biner, slimer and easier to access or remove. I use the mini on a zipper pull on my jacket which helps avoid a caribner hitting me in the face during high winds. The larger doubles as a key chain or ID lanyard. Strong and light, a cool item!!!

Love Em!!!

Multiple Use

These are handy little biners that work for a variety of uses. I always have a couple of these on my backpack and use them for just about everything. Fairly strong but certainly not for full body weight. I stopped using them for securing my dogs leash and went with a climbing carabiner.

Great Product

Great Gadgets

These little gadgets are fantastic. I use them for all kinds of things. I use one to keep my keys connected to each other and a couple more on my pack to keep things connected to the outside. They are easy to use with one hand and keep things secure.

Useful little clip.

I use mine to clip on my Camelbak unbottle, but they are useful for any number of other things, like flashlights, climbing gear, shoes, and anything you want access to quickly outside of a pack. I must have 15 of these, clipped to almost all of my packs. They're available in plastic for lighter duty versions, and metal for heavier gear. Great idea, great execution.

not too bad

#3 I use it everyday as a key chain and love it. makes taking keys off easy clipping to pants or packs a breeze. BUT I have had a key or two fall off from now and then. For normal everyday use it's good and has tons of other uses. I have another one on order (to hit the $50 mark) but it's going to be put to good use

the great doomaflicky!!!!

The only thing I can say negatively about this item is that the clips open very easily, SO don't expect this thing to work as a key chain or else you will be like some of the others on here complaining about loosing keys. However, I'm not sure what kind of moron would opt for this as a key chain over let's say...a KEYCHAIN...but I actually think the easy leverage clipping on these are great for not having to fight with it when pulling it out for whatever millions of uses you will find for it. Here's just a few that I have found throughout my year of having one...

hanging food in camp
hanging light in camp (from tree, etc.)
hanging dog in camp, hehe just kidding PITA...although I have used this many times to clip dog's leash to zip line in camp
hanging headlamp in tent
makeshift fishing string (the kind you put your keepers on, not fish with, lol!)
clipping rain suit to pack
clipping solar panel to pack
hanging hydration bladder in tent and various places
hanging bug light/candles in camp
hanging deer scent
the list goes on....

been gearing up for a trip thru the AT and this item caught my attention in Backpacker magazine gear reviews for 08 so I decided to get some. I plan on ordering at least one of each size cuz there are endless capabilities for these things anywhere, but especiially for all your outdoors needs. I have the #2, which is suggested for up to 10 lbs, but I have used it for more than that (not recommended for #2)and haven't noticed it give any at all. Great quality craftmanship and they woon't break your back if you're a gram/ounce counter. Like I say, the clips are not flimsy, but not stiff so if you're in need of a keychain...please, buy a key chain or get one of those heavey duty biners you see at the local auto zone, oreilleys or wal mart automotive dept....use THESE for what they're made for........
