Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrew from Solid all around biner I have a couple of these for all around use and they work well for belaying, rapping, anchors, lowering on a device with guide mode, etc. (though not the best at any one thing). Good to have a few of these around, you'll always find a use for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pararescue Andrew from Love these guys Pretty much a permanent fixture on my harness. Comfortably fits a Munter hitch in a pinch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by David from Decent, but I wanted rounder The choice seems to be between this and a Rocklock. Obviously, there's some difference in weight, but the stock on the wider end of the Rocklock is fully round, whereas it's a little more flat on the Mini Pearabiner. Makes it a little less useful as the rope biner while belaying two from above, as the rope doesn't move as smoothly. Otherwise, it's a good addition to the kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephen from Very Satisfied. Your 'Biners serves a duel role with my SaddleBack briefcase and CamelBak backpack for mountainbiking. That's an actual term! MountainBiking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gavin from great belay biner Perfect for belaying or rapelling - the large basket fits any rope cleanly, and the largish size helps dissipate heat. A bit heavy to carry for anchor building, but I always have it on my rack with my ATC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from The Best! This is the best locking carabiner for guiding on the market, by far. Here's why: 1. It performs the normal functions of a pearabiner - you can use a munter hitch, rappel and belay with two ropes evenly. 2. It's light and small - but not too small to get ropes out of easily. 3. When using the ATC in Guide mode, this carabiner gives a smooth belay. other carabiners are either too thin and it is hard to pull the ropes through the device; or the carabiner is nicely round, but a huge carabiner. 4. The gate stays closed better than the Petzl Attache and other lockers on the market...but it doesn't get stuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric from great biner A great alternative to a heavier full size pear without much sacrifice of rope surface. I use this with a ATC Guide and a figure 8. Heat seems to transfer better on long rappels than on other I-beam lockers that are lighter. Also used a friends gri-gri and a Mammut smart and the rope surface and overall size works a well as a RockLock, (has about 1.5mm less surface on top rope surface). Overall a great pear biner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel from I use this biner every climb I climb. I don't use double ropes like the other reviewer, but it seems like the pear shaped biner does what it is designed to do. This biner is designed to function differently than a round/old school biner. I use this in conjunction with my ATC Guide and GridLock biner. I own the GridLock, RockLock, Positron Locker and VaporLock. They all serve their purpose and I typically use this Mini Pearabiner to hold the rope in my ATC Guide as a belay from the top (the GridLock holds the ATC Guide to the anchor/masterpoint).
