    im close to 300 myself (i hate saying that...) on my bad days, and i have the clips. so long as youre not bouncing the hell out of them, you should be fine. and theres a gent on here bigger than me using them, ill try to find the video of it, but he did fine.

    heres some more info tho

    from Dutch himself:
    "Dutch Clip safety
    The Dutch Clip has lifted over 1300 pounds without bending at all. They are built with overkill for good reason. The retention hook does a good job of keeping the webbing in place. Iafte has an embarassing vid of me falling to the ground from trying to use one without the hook so I know the importance of it."
