Jake Quik-Lok

rated 3 of 5 stars The Jake is different from any other auto-lock carabiner you have ever used. That is a huge con, as it runs contrary to what a climber is accustomed to. For its price, there are better options on the market. I was looking for a "throat-y" auto locking aluminum 'biner, and the Omega Jake (OJ) drew me in with its description of an "off set gate" to give lots of clearance. It does everything it claims to. However, I found the cons to outweigh the pros. If you are use to an autolocking 'biner, the OJ… Full review

Standard Locking D

rated 3 of 5 stars The Locking D is a decent 'biner at a good price. It does not provide all the [unnecessary] bells and whistles of some other carabiners, but it is going to provide a climber exactly what he needs without breaking the bank.

Mountain Axe

rated 4 of 5 stars I like this axe. I have used it on self-arrest practice and to climb steep, hard spring snowfields, no serious mountaineering though.

The books say this isn't ideal and I may adjust it some with a grinder but the issue hasn't come up for me. As far as an axe is concerned, it does the job. I wrapped the head with athletic tape near the handle to save on my gloves… Full review

Jake Jr. Screw-Lok

rated 3 of 5 stars Not a bad carabiner but for the price should have gotten something else. Pro: Belay action with an ATC is smooth, the anodized coating has held up well, and the slightly off center gate opening is a nice feature Con: On the heavy side, not a key lock nose so rope can catch sometimes, will NOT fit through a Petzl Grigri opening.
