Petzl ice axe

I like it because it is light and good quality. I usually strap it to the backpack when I'm hiking in the snow and only use it on steep slopes. Yes the strap could be longer.

Leash loop is a little short and narrow for a gloved hand, but nice that it comes with leash nonetheless when compared to other axes that don't

Balance of $ and weight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is an entry level axe which strikes a good balance between cost and weight. I have trust in the pick, shaft and overall construction.
4 Stars because the Rando Leash is too short. I have a medium sized mens hand and with gloves on it is difficult/uncomfortable to hold. Easy solution though is installing a new leash. That being said unlike other Axes (IE BD Raven) at least this Axe came with a Leash and plastic pickguard which stays on and somehow hasnt slipped off. Some of the other Axes you need to buy these items separate. Buyer beware.
