Firebiner Pre-Launch

“So excited about this! Best of luck to the team!” Adam

“Great product idea. I just upped my pledge so I get the paracord as well. :)” Steve

“no doubt this will get funded. Good luck.” S

“You’re welcome. If this turns out to be half as awesome as the Kodiak, it’ll be money well spent. I fly in the backseat of the FA-18F for the US Navy, and every time I do, I wear the Kodiak. I have full confidence that if something ever happened and I found myself in a survival scenario, I’d be well-prepared no matter the environment I might find myself in. Thanks guys. Looking forward to the firebiner!” EH

Firebiner Post-Launch

“Received in California today and I’m very happy with it. Great quality and everything works perfectly. I’ve never been a fan of carabiners, but this one forced me to rethink that ’cause it’s more than just a big clip and could actually save my life if I need it to. Thank you for delivering a great product, I look forward to your future endeavors.” Justin 5/4/17 on Kickstarter

“I am honestly impressed with the quality. Great work guys.” Eric 5/4/17 on Kickstarter

“Got mine today and promptly started a fire using the jute from the cord at the dinner table. My 4 y/o son was impressed, my wife not so much. Easy peazy though. Great quality and seems like a great product. Thanks.” Ryan 5/5/17 on Kickstarter

“Thanks…great service + great product is a winning combo. Excited to be a part of it…onward, upward.” BJ 5/5/17 on BackerKit

“This is great. I have quite a few carbiners, many way more expensive. The firebiner is now one of my favorites. Very attractive, very useful, an excellent bit of kit. Throws nice fat sparks.” Hiram 5/6/17 on Kickstarter

“Awesome.” Yery 5/7/17 on Kickstarter
