Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits and Protects These things work just fine. All crampons made within the last 20 years or so collapse with the center bar and fit in this bag nicely. Just push them together and put them in point to point. Point to point is also important, as the points can obviously penetrate the mesh and they can work their way through the vinyl. That's not a shortcoming of this crampon bag, that's a shortcoming of keeping your crampons in anything other than a metal box. I like the daisy chain on the back; makes it easy to lash it to a backpack. It's much more convenient than the rubber tip protectors and if you use it like it's designed to be used, just as effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You gotta know when to fold 'em . . . At first, we struggled to figure out how to get the crampons into the storage bag. After we read some helpful reviews on how to fold and position the crampons - voila! - they fit! First, we folded down the toe and the heel of each crampon. Next, slide the toe towards the heel to shorten the crampons. We placed the points together (crampons on their side) in a toe-to-heel position. This is similar to how new shoes are packed in their shoe box (though new shoes are typically laying on their side top-to-top, rather than soul-to-soul or point-to-point). Insert into the storage bag, zip it up, and head to the mountains!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should. The BD crampon bag is a good, no frills, way to get your sharp stuff to the snow. I use these bags exclusively to get my gear to the trailhead, preferring to save weight by attaching my crampons to the outside of my pack after that point. The previous reviewer criticized the bag's size. All of my crampons (Grivel, BD, and Petzl) fit in the bag with room to spare. Perhaps he didn't own a pair of crampons that collapsed in the middle? My only complaint with this bag is that it could use a bottom sheet that was a bit more stout. I recently opened my luggage after a trip to find a crampon point poking through the bottom of the BD crampon bag. Remember to pack something durable underneath this (or any) bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too big, but not to small. This bag is small enough that you need to break your crampons down to fit with in, ( just slide the heel bar back ) I also put my spikes heel to toe so they are facing each other so they don’t cut through. BD makes it just big enough but it can be a pain, especially with gloves on. The mesh vents very well and there are daisy chain loops on the back side ( it would be nice to have only the one loop point and save even more weight ) If your accent requires you to stash your points in your pack before your go, or your just looking not to rip your gear up at home this is a solution to your problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for your sneakers Both my Black Diamond and Petzl cramons fit into this bag. The commenter that tried to fit his loafers into it was exceeding design limits. My buddy has Grivell's that do not break down in the middle, and they won't fit in this bag either. It's lightweight & does just what it says it does. I too have punctured the bottom of it by crushing it in the bottom of the pack on approaches, but it's smaller and lighter than the Osprey pouch. A great alternative to bungee cords, straps and sharp points hanging off the top of your backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I've been making due with other means of carrying my crampons - but after borrowing a friend's crampon bag - I knew I needed my own. The thing is, I stepped it up with this bag - the mesh material sealed the deal - I didn't want my crampons hanging out in a puddle when they were stored. Also, the construction makes it a cinch to secure the pouch to whatever bag I'm carrying with either a carabineer or by weaving my sleeping bag compartment straps through the back of the pouch. Don't hesitate - add this bit o' gear to your collection and you'll be glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for anyone but total novices This bag does exactly what it is meant for and for people who know how to pack crampons (90% of crampons on the market). If it was any bigger or sturdier, the extra weight would be an issue for mountaineers. Anyone who has common sense knows that before you buy a crampons case, specially if you have an older or oversized not collapsable crampons, you check the if it fits before you buy it. Or are they that narcissistic that they think that 99% of the people should have a bigger bag, just because their highness has an odd pair. Unbelievable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Crampon Bag Can't quite figure out the other reviews. This bag is the perfect size for "new" crampons (unlike older longer bags by OR and Grivel which I have purchased). New as in since the late 90's. They fit my Grivel G12s, BD Neves, BD Contacts and my friends Cyborgs. They don't fit my fully ridged CAMP Foot Fangs. Very durable with a daisy chain to secure it to your pack. Bright orange so you don't loose it in the snow. Does the job well and at a decent price.
