    I got a couple free after a long backorder. I like them. Not sure they are worth the price diff though. They are boltsnaps.

    They are great. The only negative is that the snap hook diameter is a tad too small so it is possible to get them tightly jammed when clipped into my rebreather frame. With oc where you only clip to D rings they are fantastic. In Europe the price difference is smaller.

    Handy replacement for small boltsnaps with fiddley gates. I use one for my primary clip-off which is much easier to thumb with thick gloves. I haven't bothered switching out the larger 1" snaps on my SPG or stages as these are pretty straightforward forward by vertue of size.

    With blue gloves and wool liners, I can't imagine a need, or a desire, to insert my finger into a bolt snap.

    I like to do that with stage bottle boltsnaps with my drygloves and liners...

    Do they have a tendency to "cut" drygloves like some of the others do? I noticed the thumbs of drygloves tend to wear out rather quickly from clipping/clipping

    Not so much. They work smoothly and finishing is good. Also the design probably helps.
