An ultra-strong carabiner is an EDC essential. And now, there's one strong, versatile, and convenient enough for your everyday life. Meet Kootenay. The aviator-grade titanium carabiner stands out from the rest with its dual zone design. With this in tow, it's virtually impossible for your keys, pocket knives, or flashlights to fall out of reach. Clip on your backpack or pants using the versatile back clip to add another layer of convenience to your setup. The titanium body makes it light enough to carry everywhere without feeling weighed down. Yet strong enough to handle your everyday must-haves.
We are a group of industrial designers, mechanical engineers and product engineers. We reside in Western Canada, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. We have been engaged in mechanical design and manufacturing for 15 years. We have always been EDC equipment enthusiasts. In 2020, we were hiking and cycling in the Rocky Mountains. We realized the lack of functionalities in the EDC we brought, so we decided to make our own EDC products. We advocate that every EDC has a purpose, not just for fancy. We strive to make each product more unique than the existing ones. We pursue products that are lighter, stronger, and more durable so that people love to carry them. We also want to use as much Titanium as we can for the belief that Titanium is the best material.
