F.S. Mini II Carabiner

Metolius updated the F.S. Mini II Carabiner with a larger gate opening for better clipping while climbing. Alpinists can appreciate this sequel's lightened weight, while sport climbers can gain confidence with the flared nose that reduces accidental gate openings. And every climber will love that the F.S. Mini II has a less expensive price tag for this season.

Small, But Versatile Size

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

As plenty others have mentioned, this carabiner works great for climbing uses such as racking gear or as a bail biner. The small size also makes it perfect for your keys or just to carry in your bag for whatever situation may arise.

great small biner

Great biner for racking and similar size to Nano.

Solid racking Carabiner

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Nothing outstanding, very lightweight and great to pair with Metolius cams for the color orientation.

Just the right size

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Perfect size for all those everyday needs that come up like hanging hammocks, holding loose gear, anchoring the dog leash to a spot, etc.

Go-to mini-biner

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Love is always about perspective. My primary use for these is as a life flight medical provider- weight/size matters, loose objects kill, failure is not optional, and dexterity is scarcely impeded by a nitrile glove. I've since found the little buggers proliferating into the rest of my life- keys, nalgenes, securing rescue/climbing gear, macgyver situations... Have these replaced my workhorse rack biners? Not at all- they're just too small to be deftly manipulating all day climbing... But that is the point- they are mini biners. If you're looking for a smaller workhorse biner, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a mini biner, these are bomber.

Perfect

Works perfect to hold your keys. Not too big and not too small.

Solid

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I haven't used it for climbing yet, but its a great size for a key set and it's always nice to have another bail biner.

>Rating: 5

Lightweight, not bulky

I like these because while they're significantly smaller, you clip in just as easy as with a large biner. And I use one for my keys!

Great, but not perfect.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

On their own, these biners are great! I use them with Metolius cams and they're perfect; on my key ring, and I like to have some extra around for bail biners and miscellaneous things. But between the Camp Nano 22's and this, I much prefer the Nano's. They're just a tad bit lighter and a slightly larger gate makes them just a bit easier to use. These are still great carabiners, but they're not best.

Great!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

FS mini: These carabiners match flawlessly with my mastercams making for a super light rack. Even though they are small I've had no issues quickly clipping in to them.

>Rating: 4

Good for non climbing uses too

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've got these on my fishing kayak to help with rigging rods/anchor/tackle, and I have heard of people using these on rafts or driftboats too. Small, inexpensive biners are almost as versatile as duct tape

>Rating: 5

great for some uses, probably not others

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I use these color coded on my x4 cams. They are perfect for that because they are cheaper than alot of other color options and lightweight. They are definitely smaller than most carabiners you'll get, but for just racking cams that's preferable to save on weight. I use alpine draws on all my cams so it's not like I'm using these biners for running the rope through or taking falls

>Rating: 2

too small

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I got a few as racking biners, but they're too small for even that! I find them difficult to clip/unclip from my harness/rack loops. When I was hanging off a crimp, and trying to jangle my blue X4 off my gear sling, I decided that I was done with them. There are better small/light options out there that out perform this biner. When I have to bail, I will be leaving these behind on the mountain.

great and small

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These are great for hanging your hammock from. They're smaller than most carabiners with this power and very lightweight.
