Leopard FL Crampon

It's nice to have Petzl's ultralight Leopard FL Crampon packed when the mountaineering adventure is long and the snow travel is short.This all-aluminum keeps the weight to a minimum and traction to a maximum when you're relying on the ten points to keep you upright on icy traverses. Petzl's Cord-Tec flexible linking system reduces volume when packed away, and the tool-free length adjustment assures a secure fit. This strap-on crampon is compatible with any hike or approach shoe without welts at the toe or heel.

Solid Lightweight Campon for skiing

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought the LLF version of these for my Ski boots, it doesn't appear that Backcountry carries this version anymore so I'll leave a review for these. First off these crampons are super light making them easy to pack and almost unnoticeable in your pack. The corderd section in the middle may seem flimsy and sketchy but they are super bomber. I have used these on 5 trips this summer in everything from deep snow to vertical hardpack to sharp rocks without any worry that they'll come off. These all aluminum crampons are designed for snow travel. My latest trip involved a 500' climb up a bulletproof couloir. I felt super sketchy while my partners climbed up without any worry. I'll be upgrading the front section to the steel SARKENS just for extra purchase on the early morning spring snow.

Innovative, light, and compact crampon

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Many's the time I wish I had a crampon like this and didn't because they were just too darn heavy or I didn't have the room to carry them. Petzl really has come up with an innovative and very light weight crampon perfect for my needs that solves both those problems. I was first introduced to these on an early spring traverse of the Enchantment Lakes and I felt a lot more comfortable in them than did my buddies in their micro spikes. They are super easy to adjust and once you get used to the flexibility very easy to don. I can put them on using the second method shown in the instruction manual where the adjustment strap runs under the dyneema cord in about 30 seconds per boot. I use these primarily with La Sportiva Trango Cube boots; that combination is awesome and very confidence inspiring. I have also worn them with Salewa Snow Trainers, Salewa Mountain Trainers, and Zamberlan Vioz and they work very well with all of those boots too. I tried them (in the house) with low top approach shoes and I do not recommend them for use with low top shoes. I don't wear them on dirt or rock and thus the points show no wear. They dyneema cord shows no wear at all - it isn't even fuzzy at wear points. These are not recommended for glacier travel but I climbed Kokanee and Colchuck glaciers using them and felt quite comfortable.

Thanks for the review James!

Will these crampons work with both a AT Ski boot and a mountaineering boot?

Hi Erika! Thanks for reaching out! Those Petzl Leopard FL Crampons WILL indeed fit both AT ski boots (with a heel and toe welt) as well as mountaineer boots and hiking boots without a toe welt. One crampon to work with most boots and shoes! With that said, if you’re going to be doing a lot of booting, we’d still recommend going with the Lever Lock Fil (LLF) for better performance when front pointing. You can always buy the flexible heel piece and toe bail later on to use with shoes without welts.

Does this product come with a bag to store the crampon in?

Mine came with a bright orange bag, not sure they denier but certainly no issues so far in my pack!

Is there any way to tell if these crampons will work with the Lowa Cevedale boots? The boots do have a heel welt that works with hybrid crampons, but I love the weight savings. My use is summer cascades volcano climbing. Nothing technical, pretty much snow and icy snow. Thank you.
