Took me a while to figure out about all the sizes. I would recommend getting out a little tape measure and use these size measure's from the niteize website:
Size #.5 dimensions: 1.31" weight rating: n/a
Size #1 dimensions: 1.56" x .56" weight rating: 5 lb.
Size #2 dimensions: 2" x .88" weight rating: 10 lb.
Size #3 dimensions: 2.63" x 1.13" weight rating: 25 lb.
Size #4 dimensions: 3.5" x 1.5" weight rating: 75 lb.
Size #5 dimensions: 4.38" x 1.94" weight rating: 100 lb.
I got the #3 size, and i think that its the perfect size for my use. I have on there, a gerber Shard tool, a streamlight nano flashlight, 4 keys. all on the biner, without needing a keyring attached on there. For keys, i would think that the 0.5,1, or 2 might be a little tight. #4 is prob good if you have a jail warden-like set of keys, or if you want to hang a paintbucket from your pants (good luck keeping your pants on)
Only thing i don't like: One of my keys has the isosceles triangle shape for the ring hole and it because of its shape and the shape of the biner, it doesnt have any room to rotate around, making the rest of the keys sit kind of stiff. This is only an annoyance to me because i don't want to add on any key rings onto the biner, but obv. if you have a key ring that your keys hang from, its a non-issue.
This biner holds up pretty well, and im enjoying the s-design much more than traditional keychain biners. Why 5 stars? It does what its supposed to do, hangs on my beltloop nice and strong, easy to remove if i need it, and it holds a nice amount of weight.
The #4 S-Biner, however, I can absolutely and enthusiastically recommend without the slightest hint of hesitation. I've owned one of these before and generally just use it to attach my keys to my ACU belt loop, but on one occasion in particular I used it -in conjunction with approximately 10' of 550 paracord retrieved from my boots- to hold my weight (148 lbs) in an emergency situation. The #4 'biner is only rated to 75 lbs, but I can personally attest that it will hold 148 lbs without any sign of stress cracking or bending. This S-Biner, along with a length of 550 paracord, can truly be a life-saver and should at the very least be included in any BOB kit, if not actually carried on your person every day like I do.
I've seen that other reviewers have had issues with their keys and etc. slipping off the 'biner, and although I can conceive of scenarios in which this might occur, I can honestly say that in almost three years of using this device every day, I have never personally had this happen. Take as a given that it's possible, then, but I think it's fairly unlikely so long as you pay attention to how you're using it.
I absolutely recommend the #4 S-Biner to everyone.
Couple of technical specs, since it can be a pain to find the specs on Amazon:
#4 S-Biner: Rated to 75 lbs,, measures 3-1/2" long x 1-1/2" wide.
#3 S-Biner: Rated to 25 lbs., measures 2-5/8" long x 1-1/8" wide.
#2 S-Biner: Rated to 10 lbs., measures 2" long x 7/8" wide.
