Leashes for leashless tools.
The Grivel Spring Leash lets you take advantage of leashless tools without the risk of dropping one off a steep ice route or half way up an alpine climb. Available as a single leash for mountaineering or a double for the steep stuff, this leash contracts to keep from tangling an extends to your full reach. Just girth hitch this leash to your belay loop, clip the carabiners to the hold in your tool's handle, and get after it.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
There really aren't too many good times to drop an axe or tool. Avoid the situation entirely. Pick up this spring leash and issue avoided. Simple, easy to use and has a quality hand to it. I fully expect this to last many adventures.
I had no issues with the leash being too long or too short, whether setting a pick high above my head, pluging my pick while french stepping and general glacier walking.
