I had the awesome opportunity to test the Firebiner by Outdoor Element.
I am an avid backpacker and as so there are a few things that I love when it comes to gear. Multifunctional, light weight, and simplicity. All these items were checked-off my list when I received the Firebiner to review. At first glance this just looked like a typical carabiner, but when you really get into the looking at this Firebiner, you know that this is something unique. I was really excited to take this over the weekend to try it out. For our hike in to the campground I used it to attach my solar lantern to my pack and it held up, with no issues. Once at camp I transferred that set-up from my pack to the inside of the tent while we got ready for bed. In the morning I was able to test out the features a bit more. I played with the gate mechanism by just flicking it open with my thumb multiple times and I will say that is the only feature I wish was more heavy-duty. It closes properly, but just feels a tad weak. However, it did still complete its intended job of holding on to whatever I clip it to with no failures. I will cut it some slack because I know for a light weight biner it isn't going to be a thick/heavy gate that’s going to snap close in the speed of light. Isn't like I am going to be repelling off of it either. After its main feature comes the spark wheel! The firestarter and key appeal to me about this piece of equipment. I used it to light my Jetboil and it only took one flick for it to ignite the flame. Take a look at the videos included to see how quick and easy it was. This is priceless to me because at high alltitudes, the Jetboil’s normal ignitor has troubles. It is a peace of mind knowing that included in my normal piece of gear (carabiner), I have a fire starter no matter what. On top of that, you don't have to worry about the ferro rod dying out because it is replaceable! Instead of having to rebuy the entire firebiner, you can just replace the inside ferro rod and keep on sparkin'. When you purchase the finebiner, it includes two replacements! Its next feature that it includes is a tiny stainless steel blade along the spine of it that you can use to cut anything around camp that. I would see this especially hand if you fish to cut a quick line! Next feature is at the top of the spine you see a flatten edge. This is a screwdriver tip! Always a handy item to have. Between the screwdriver tip and the stainless steel blade you get a bonus feature… a bottle opener! I mean, no one can argue about this not being a great add-on! Last feature that makes this product to great in my eyes it’s the key-holes that the very bottom. There is a spot to attach your key ring without the fear of losing your keys when using the carabiner portion!
To make this simpler for you here is a breakdown of the pros and cons I saw while testing out this product!
Gate closes 'softly'
Fire starter/ spark wheel
Stainless steel blade
Replaceable ferro rod
Designated spot for a key ring
Conclusion: I definitely recommend this product for just about anyone! It's is a handy tool that is multifunctional and light weight so there is no reason to not have this in your gear list! Thank you Outdoor Element for this awesome product!

Love, love, love this
I use a carabiner to carry my keys, so when I saw this firebiner I bought it immediately. Absolutely love this - lightweight, durable, sparks well & comes with extra Ferri rods.
Major props to whoever came up with this. Must have for campers & those who like to go in the woods.

Good sparks make fire starting easy
Gave the firebinder to one of our Scouts to get a fire started, sparks up really well, she had a little problem due to how windy was, but a second try with a cotton ball covered in petroleum jelly had a fire going after three strikes. Our Scouts gave the striker five stars. The cutting blade worked well on string and fishing line; however ,we could not get through 550 para cord, and with such a small opening you are really limited on what you can cut with it. Overall everyone likes the look of the firebiner, and it held up to a weekend of use, is small and light weight and has worked well for clipping items on to packs.

Most engineered carabiner I have seen!
This is the best carabiner I have owned. It is super lightweight yet strong as heck! I now use it as my daily key ring and got a second for my pack. I use the seatbelt cutter for fishing line all the time and it still may save my life too lol! Confirmed it works after a dunking and in high wind as a sparker. I cant say enough about this little thing! Thanks Outdoor Element for over engineering this product for me!

Must have if you want to spend time in the woods!
Love this thing!! I was never confident with my flint and steel, but it is so easy to get consistent sparks with this. Not to mention, it is super lightweight and has many other uses. This thing is awesome and is now my go-to gift for anyone that enjoys the outdoors!!
