Sleek EDC maker, The James Brand is back with an all-black Hardin carabiner. We’re planning on picking a few more up in one of the new colorways as this is our favorite James Brand Carabiner. The drop forged clip is made from 6063 Aluminum and has a spring loaded mechanism featuring two “compartments.” One for your keys, and the other can be easily clipped around a belt loop or pack strap. The Hardin is 3″ tall an 1.5″ wide. It’s available in 6 colors.
