Some scratches on the carabiner on both sides that are definitely noticeable. I can’t tell whether they’re ’scratches’ or a manufacturing mistake but otherwise the product feels nice and operates how it was intended. I would give 5 stars but it really bugs me that I got mine with these weird dark scratches. I didn’t pay 120 for a mistreated product or a manufacturing error. Again it’s fine the carabiner still works as intended and feels like premium grade material, but I would advise that James makes sure their products are being manufactured and shipped correctly.
