Bison Designs Stainless-Steel Biner with Bottle Opener Keychain Reviews:
Cool little gadget
This little piece of equipment has proven itself a good buy during a number of backpacking and camping trips and during the occasional backyard party. Great way of keeping your keys together as well as having a bottle opener handy when you least expected.
This is a great keychain. I have had previous (cheaper) carabiner's in the past that have fallen off of my belt loop. This one is very secure and will not fall off. The bottle open is very handy and works great. Overall: Great product!
Well first off, I bought this product to replace my Nite Ize Ahhh beiner that broke.
This design I thought was much better because the sturdy cut out where the key's go is a lot better than the ahhh beiner's gate that allows keys to come off easily.
As a key chain this product is awesome. When it comes to opening bottles however... terrible.
If you look at the portion that goes under the cap to pull it up and off the bottle, the lip is curved the wrong way.
It should be curved so that it hugs the bottle not curves away so all of your force is placed on one of the bottle caps crimps.
I have had troble opening bottles from the start but I wasn't willing to give up just yet. However last night at a party, a friend of mine cut his hand wide open because this opener cracked the whole lip of the bottle clean off.
If they could use Nite Ize Ahh beiner for the top gate and bottle opener, and the cut out of this product for the keys, you would have a useful bottle opener beiner, but until that happens. It's going back to REI.
