#00. I think mainly for the look, since I don't swim around in my gear and haven't really seen the need for anything larger. Quite frankly in 99% of use-cases a grommet isn't needed.

I use #00 on the bottoms of my mag pouches. I'm going to guess that 99% of my customers won't swin in their gear but I think drains are expected on quality gear. (Just my opinion)

#00 Rolled rim spur grommets are perfect for what I am doing in 99% of the cases. My main motivation for chosing the RRSG over a regular grommet and washer is the fact that it has a wider base and better fabric gripping properties meaning it wont tear out of the hole as easily as a regular grommet when loaded.

6mm grommets for me. I think they look better when slightly oversized.
