    Protect your clothes from sharp, pointy objects with the Black Diamond Axe Protector.

    Black Diamond's Axe Protector covers the pick and adze on your ice axe or ice tool, so you don't open your gear duffel to find your down jacket shredded to bits. The Axe Protector fits nearly any ice axe, and it's a lot cheaper than a new jacket.

    Keep your gear tear-free

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Purchase these to use on my ice tools, even though they are intended for axes. The adze protector is shaped for axe-adzes, but still fit over tool-adzes. Now that I've switched over to hammers I removed the adze protectors, which is easy to do if you're careful.

    These guys are light, brightly colored (so you won't lose them), and fit my tools just perfect. It's a small investment to protect against a big bummer of shredded gear.


    Almost Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Well, for $10, it's amazing.

    For my Black Diamond Raven Pro I bought it for, it doesn't quite fit the profile of the pick (no noticeable) and there is plenty of room for a wider adze. So it's not purpose build for the Raven Pro - but that's probably a better thing.

    Always use protection

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As many have said these are great for protecting against accidental tears in your gear or scrapes on your legs or arms from your axe when you forget its on your pack. I also like these a lot for when I am flying with my gear as protection when I toss these inside a gear bag.

    Good Axessory

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    See what I did there? Seriously, the plastic is tough, flexible, and resistant to cracking and dry rot. The bungees look like they will hold up even after excessive stretching. Crucially, they are orange so that it is easily identifiable when you drop it in the snow. These should come with the BD Raven. All it takes is one hole in your mountaineering pack or goretex jacket from an ax tip and you will be sold on this product.

    The essential accessory for my BD axe

      This is exactly what you need when you throw the axe in your trunk or strap it on to your pack. cheap but very effective. I didnt buy the spike protector (thought it was superfluous) but this is 100% necessary if you have an axe. BD should just raise the axe price 5 bucks and have it come with this.

      The essential accessory for my BD axe

      Best on the market.

        These will fit any axe and are the best quality of the axe/pick/spike protectors out there.

        Other brands are one piece rubber, and they tend to dry out and crack, making them useless. The bungees on BD's protectors last years, and the rubber scabbards don't get strained and crack over time.

        Buy these once, or the others a few times over.

        will this work on a petzl sumtec?

        Will this work on a Grivel G1 axe?
