User Review: Black Diamond Unisex Trail
Source: bought it new
Very secure. I use them with confidence.
- They seem bulky compared to twist lock.
I've been using these extensively for several months. They have been very reliable with full backpack weight —65+lbs and moving quickly. I'm very confident with these descending steep slopes.
There is a particular way to adjust the strap, but, once set, it stays in place.
I also have seen absolutely no slippage in the locking mechanisms even in steady rain.
The tips and baskets are still solid after more that 50 days of use - occasionally on gravel.
I was going to purchase Lekis initially, but a knowledgeable sales guy convinced my to buy these. While they aren't sleek looking Lekis, they are a very reliable piece of gear.
