Best Security Chain out there?

Does anybody know what's the best security chain out there?
I've heard comments about Trimax but yesterday I found a video where they show a bolt cutter cutting through it without a problem. Let me know your opinion.

CABLE is almost impossible to cut with bolt cutters and a hack saw isn't much good either. even a cheap thick airline cable is harder to get through than a hardned chain unless you have a Oxy tourch.

Chains work great, you just need to attach a Pitbull to one end.

A few of the stolen bikes reported here had their bikes snatched from the inside the storage units themselves. The theives are getting smarter it seems. Just remember, if you get your bike stolen, please include the location (specificly the names of the apts), time of day, date, how your bike was secured (assuming it was) and any other clues. This broadens the picture of the theives behaviors, and in the long run help the whole bike community.
