Brando's USB Carabiner Flash drive

The company has launched the USB Carabiner Flash drive, which not only provides a way for mountain rescue teams, hikers and thrill-seekers to attach themselves to ropes, but also ensures they've always got 4GB of storage to hand.

But if you’re not into climbing, then the range of fruity coloured carabineers could also be used as a handy storage/keyring combo. Each drive supports USB 2.0, measures 19 x 19 x 70mm and is Windows, Mac and Linux compatible.

The USB Carabiner Flash drive is available now online for $32 (£15/€20).

It should go without saying that these aren't really for climbing, but since these litiguous times and just in case there are some would-be Darwin Award winners out there: THESE ARE NOT FOR CLIMBING, OK?
