We were beyond excited to see this writeup! “Best Gadget” under Essential Knives and tools! 

To quote the Article:

OUR TAKE Backpackers like carabiners. Backpackers love carabiners that make fire. The stainless-steel Firebiner will bring out your inner caveman: it has a built-in spark wheel with a 2,000-strike capability. It also has a flathead screwdriver and a bottle opener, plus a safety blade in a notch that cuts through cord and fishing line. The biner Isn’t rated for climbing, but can easily support a full multiday pack.

TRAIL CRED “The Firebiner is basically foolproof, and it always throws a spark with the first spin,” one tester says. “It’s easier than most dedicated firestarters I’ve used.”

    Can you take the firebiner on an airplane? Or do you have to pack it in you checked-in luggage?
    Response: Yes, you can fly with the firebiner in the US and most of the world. The only place we have had issues thus far is China.
