It's not an alternative to 7zip and such because this one is CLI-based. But in the world of CLI zipping tools, the only other one I can think was the (now) very old PKZIP/PKUNZIP.

As a command line tool, it just does what it needs to do & almost never fails. Never mind it is old, it is very well constructed and solid. Not saying it is perfect, but it has this impression of quality around it. You can see that in the website itself, it's not flashy or loud, it just states what needs to. This is one of the limited set of killer CLI-programs, which to me is impossible to live without.

Great for quick usages

Because it is small, well documented and portable. Plus each executable is quite standalone.

For sure is not so common or updated, but it works quite well. I love it.
