Heavy but frequently the right solution

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have an older, likely heavier version of this crampon case. Like democracy, its one of those imperfect solutions that's still the best I've seen. :D

The bad:
Heavy itself (removing/replacing the internal frame sheet with hdpe would minimize) , holds generally heavy crampons farthest back from body amplifying effect. (better used to extend space & features on a slim 30-45L mountaineering pack then to stack on an already mammoth load hauler.)

The great:
Keeps crampons absolutely secure/out of the way/easily available and keeps your pack dry when you pack crampons after use (I really don't like having to shuffle something so critical around, and risk dropping or forgetting them, each time you get in or out of your pack ).
The pouch attaches easily to nearly any pack with lid/exterior straps or d-ring attachment points.
Adjustable straps create an expanding pocket between the pack where you can quickly secure: a layering piece (without having to pull your pack apart), the trash bag, that well used wag bag so its not swinging around, smacking you, waiting to be caught on a twig and rip open. (makes getting that free beer for grabbing someone else's a bit more tempting)
Adds over 3L additional storage (plus pocket mentioned above) which can be critical when trying to get everything into a minimalist pack.
Can be used as a summit pack (requires straps or webbing you probably used to hold your sleeping pad to your full pack).

Not quite what I was looking for

    Pack seems very durable and is quite large (~15"x9"x4"). Would comfortably fit any size crampon I am sure. However there is no daisy chain on it... I own two two Osprey packs but can't use this on my Kode 30 for ski mountaineering because the attachment system is not compatible. Bottome line - Pack probably works great, but it is being returned.

    A bit of webbing and thread and you could easily add a solid daisy chain or two on the case. Though I've found with all the attachment points already included on the case, some creativity, and at most a spare shoe lace, I can normally find at least one solid way to secure the case to most packs.
