    Has anyone else started cracking out on the Nite-Ize line of products? I've been on a bit of a carabiner bender lately, buying many different sizes. And I love them all. But in the last day or so I've been buying up some of the other items in their line. LED zipper pulls, gear ties/cord ties, no-knot doohickies among others.
    The lights are tiny and surprisingly bright. I put one on my jacket and one on the Janus Extension on my Fatboy. In addition to being great kit it is also a great deal. The lights were two for five! Give them a try.

    I have not liked any of the Nite-Ize products I have tried for various reasons

    To each their own I guess.

    I think their s-biners and figure 9s are awesome.

    The only thing I carry from Nite-Ize and really like is the head strap to "convert" your (AAA/AA/small body CR123) flashlight into a headlamp.
    Haven't tried any of their other stuff, as i'm pleased with my setup as is.

    I have a couple of things of theirs. The glow sticks are ok, but not too bright, and rather expensive for what they are.

    I also have a meteorlight dog ball, which is supposed to be waterproof. It was for about 2 weeks and is now dead.

    Probably will give the rest of their stuff a miss...

    I use a couple of their pieces for stuff that needs a carrying solution but will get carried infrequently - my 2D Maglite is in one of their holders in my truck (holds it under the front seat in easy reach), one of their belt pouches for some small tools (fits nicely in the drivers side door pocket), a couple of their flashlight headbands for "just in case" impromptu headlamp needs, and a few S-biners for light pocket use.

    Clearly their stuff is built proportionate to their price point, but for occasional use I find it quite reasonable.

    I so far I have only a Nite-Ize carabiner for my keys etc.
    But I am very happy with it...

    I use several of the NIteIze eclipse locking clips on my phones and knives and they have been great. Also their flashing dog lights.

    S-biner is their signature item. I have them in (I think) all sizes. So useful!
    Figure-9's are great! Perfect for setting up tents/shelters.
    Their gear pouches are well made, but I do not like the belt attachment point.
    My first purchase was one of the light-up Frisbee/disc. This is a summertime MUST, and affordable.
    Bike-light mount is great and very versatile!
    Microlight is the BEST VALUE (by far!) in a ultra-small light.

    Overall, meh. I like the ideas, but I have yet to see anything I was willing to buy on impulse. The "figure 9" is probably the closest, but I like tying knots by hand.

    I like and use the S-biner #3 and have just ordered the #5 plus I also have the multitool stretch pouch the only thing I find with the pouch tho is it sticks out too much due to the clip. saying that still like there stuff.
