The James Brand Holcombe Carabiner
Safety-critical systems always use carabiners because of the gadget’s ease of use. However, a carabiner is no longer just a device for safety equipment. It is now an important part of everyday carry items. James’ Holcombe further expands the carabiner’s versatility. This gadget comes with a unique dual compartment design, allowing for a multitude of possibilities.
Made of ¼-inch-thick stainless steel, the Holcombe is a carabiner that is built for the toughest jobs. Hook up your mountaineering gear in the main compartment while the other handles your other stuff. Whatever you put in these two compartments, you can be sure that the Holcombe will be able to handle it with ease.
Unlike other carabiners that feature flimsy locking mechanisms, the Holcombe comes with a spring-loaded wire gate. Not only does it secure the carabiner, but it also ensures easy operation. There is no point fumbling with your fingers. A simple flick will open the gate without undermining its security.
Most carabiners have a rounded shape. James ditched the conventional carabiner design and opted for a slim version. At 3 inches long and 7/8 inches wide, the Holcombe is a sleek carabiner that can add to the appeal of your denim.
While the Holcombe is a carriage system, it does integrate a few surprises in its design. There is the All Things scarper that should be perfect for removing stubborn spots on surfaces. Also integrated into the design is a flathead screwdriver. One no longer has to reach for his toolbox to tighten or loosen a screw. The Holcombe already has it covered.
The James Holcombe redefines the carabiner as we know it. While the features are modest, their usefulness can never be questioned in the real world. And with an elegant look, the Holcombe deserves a spot in a modern man’s box of adventure gear.
