Because silver on orange looks weird.
Pair each biner in the Metolius F.S. Mini II Jet Carabiner Set 6-Pack with the color-coordinated cam and climb in style. 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.

Awesome lightweight carabiners
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love these carabiners. I use them on my alpine rack and for routes with extra long approaches. Doesn't take long at all to get used to clipping the smaller sizes, and they really make a difference when you use them for a full rack. Super light, just as strong as full size carabiners, and the color coding with black diamond cams is pretty easy once you get used to black on .4 and orange on .75.

4 Stars on this carabiner just due to the size. They are super lightweight and have a great snap on the gate. But I found them to be a little small for me, getting my finger and a rope through the gate proved more difficult than anticiapated. Solid carabiner, and super light, it does not match your rack of BD C4's, since metolius makes their own cams so you may have to get creative with the color coding.
These little guys prove to be really strong and stay nice and out of the way. I have total confidence leaning on them. They make it easy to sort gear too
I didn't realize that these were the small ones when I ordered, but they are actually a perfect size and are pretty light. I don't trad climb yet, so I just got these to have extra biners, but I use them to carry around water bottles, shoes, chalk bag, etc., and they work great.

Keep It Organized!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So we all have our cams memorized by color well these little guys match up with the Camalots and will help you keep your cams in order whilst climbing! Not only are they good for organizing they are light and small so you don't have a TON on excess weight. Seriously if you are JUST getting into the trad game get a pack of these for your rack and you'll be grateful! No mistaking a #3 or #1 cam in the middle of your climb because you are mixing up colors.
