Hillsound Trail Crampon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great crampon that stretches over my mega sized Minnesota boots. Sticks, bites, gouges, and doesn't slip off the boot. I use a really big boot to keep my feet warm. Hillsound XL crampons fit over them! The Hillsound elastomor blend finds a great balance between stretch and durability. On other crampons I've used, the fit is too tight and compresses the insulation to your foot therefore greatly reducing its effectiveness. Hillsounds hug but don't constrict as much as others. Front spike plate (jointed)… Full review

Petzl Sum'Tec

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome multi purpose ice axe/tool hybrid. Climbs ice better than expected, and performs great as a ice tool. A perfect choice for the scrambler who wants a more climbing oriented axe, an alpinist looking for a tool to get across glaciers, snow, neve, and alpine ice, or the jack of all trades axe that can do it all. The Sum'tec is a terrific all round mountain tool. It's definitely an odd combination between a mountaineering axe and an ice tool. The tool definitely seems to be a perfect blend coming… Full review

Petzl Summit 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Best in class ice axe for all around mountaineering use. Pick up a Quark Trigger Rest to make the perfect all round axe. The Summit 2 took the comfortable stainless steel head from its predecessor but removed all the superfluous rubber, shedding half its weight. At a impressive 400g for the 66cm it works tremendously well. Self arrests feel natural compared to the BD Raven as you don't have to alter your grip on the head, and I find when holding a fall feels more stable than with the Raven. For… Full review

Black Diamond Raven with Grip

rated 5 of 5 stars If you have ever wondered if you need an ice axe, the answer is yes and this is probably the one you need. When your mountaineering requires a little pick swinging, but not enough to justify a hybrid tool like the Black Diamond Venom (I lost mine) the Raven is a very good choice.  The Raven is my fourth ice axe. I have climbed Mt. Adams, St. Helens, and I just returned from using my Raven on my second summit of Mt Rainier. I've also used axes on several smaller summit scrambles. My needs are mostly… Full review

Grivel G10

rated 4 of 5 stars High quality, good fitting steel crampon; excess strap annoying. I use these for hiking and scrambling when there is enough slope that I need the grip. They hold well on ice and hard pack, and give some assurance in deep snow. The antibott works as advertised...I never get snow packing on them. They are a 10 point crampon and designed for regular hiking boots, NOT mountaineering boots. The toe and heel fittings fold down and the length collapses to make them easier to pack. The straps stay tight… Full review

Black Diamond Lockdown Leash

rated 3 of 5 stars Works, but not terribly comfortable. Instructions are useless. To be fair, this leash works OK and I've had no problems with it. But to be more critical, I expected a bit more comfort and a smoother functioning "lock down." The instructions provided are for all BD leashes and it's very difficult to see how exactly this particular leash should be set up. Not sure if I'm getting the best use of it. Meh... Full review

Black Diamond Neve

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent touring crampons for ordinary hiking boots. I've owned a couple of pairs of touring crampons for ordinary hiking boots. These are soo much better than my first pair you wouldn't even put them in the same competition. After correctly setting the length of my boot, these crampons have NEVER slipped off my boot — unlike my other pair! For their intended use these are just great. These are obviously not for ice climbers! But for touring in steep old snow these are just fabulous. Highly recommended! Full review

Grivel G1 Crampon

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple and light crampon for not too steep, and glacier walking. I use this for easy winter mountain. In fact it is not easy to find user of G1 crampon. But if you consider snow walk or winter climbing, and do not have technical boots, it can be good solution. Not for technical or ice climbing, front pick is short and not too sharp, but can hold tight in deep snow in normal trekking and hiking. If you want to enjoy snow trekking or glacier walking, I recommend this.  This crampon is between rubber… Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for winter and icy hiking conditions. These trail crampons have great traction. I put them on when I get on the trail and leave them on until I get back from my hike. I have passed many people either without crampons or basic Yaktraxs on in icy conditions and it was night and day, many of these people trying to "ice skate" up and down the trail using trees or anything else they could get their hands on (including myself) so they would not slip and fall. I was one of those hikers until I… Full review
