    I use them and they have been great. The large has been perfect for the SPG and I particularly like the double-ender for my smb/working double-ender. I have a small on my reef hook leash that has worked very well too. I did remove the smaller one off my long hose as the latch design was getting snagged on my bungeed secondary. Im going to order a few more for my backup flashlights etc..

    Not inexpensive but worth it to me.

    I have them on all the bottom snaps for my BO bottles, both 40s and 80s. You wouldn't think that you'd find innovation in bolt snaps, but these work really well, especially with thick rubber dry gloves. I do use the large as I can easily get a finger through the ring.

    I use them, they are marginally better than normal snaps, although I wish they had more “weight” to them as I dive mostly dry and they feel light in my dry gloves.

    probably because the xdeep tec is one of the best options if you are going to be diving steel tanks in a drysuit in cold water

    I started using them recently and prefer them to the ones we usually see. They are convenient for me since I use "thick" gloves. Still have to try them with drygloves though..

    That very well could be. I just found it interesting, given the geographic distribution of scubaboard members, that the first three responses were all from my neck of the woods.
