Good gym shoes. Favorite pair of jeans. Power drill. Special occasion booze. Carabiners. If you’re like us, you have all of those things, but you probably did way more research before you bought everything but the carabiner. Whether you use them casually to clip keys to a belt loop or professionally to support your weight or your gear, there are a lot of uses for a carabiner. Until now though, the only ones we were familiar with were the cheap ones sitting at the register of the big box sporting goods store. The Grimloc Carabiner may be the same in name, but it’s worlds apart from the shitty ones you see all over the place that probably cost more. Fabricated from a high strength lightweight plastic with improvements like the ability to stay open and a release button designed for use with gloved hands. It’s also designed to connect to 1″ webbing so picking these up also means your pack gets an upgrade.
