Black Diamond Crampon Bag
Black DiamondCrampon Bag

Crampons and elevators don't mix well, either.

Crampons and soft gear mix about as well as ten people in a four-person elevator. Stash your mighty 'pons in the rough-and-tough Black Diamond Crampon bag to make sure there aren't any hurt feelings, ropes, or jackets when you unpack and rack up after the approach. Vinyl-coated nylon keeps the pointy parts away from the things that, frankly, don't like to be pointed at.

Nice Crampon Bag

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked this up to store some Petzl crampons and this bag is great.

It's the...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

...Ferrari of crampon bags, but orange! Fits my 12 pt Black Diamond crampons perfectly for a spot in my pack. It does the job ! No sharp points to damage my other gear. Highly recommend!

gets the job done

    It fits my petzl sarkens really nicely and is pretty durable. The mesh is nice so you know which one is on top of the other and the daisy chains are nice so you can hang the bag up.

    Purpose-built

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just returned from Aconcagua where many in my group rented crampons, all of which came in generic cordura bags. By the end of the trip, most had holes in their duffels, backpacks and/or clothing due to the teeth of crampons, which the cordura could not abate. If placed correctly in this BD crampon bag you don't have to worry about crampons shredding your stuff. I have seen some people affix their crampons to the outside of their pack to avoid this, shredding the outside of their pack or exposing all to the sharp teeth. Don't be cheap, but a purpose-built bag and forget about it.

    durable bag

      I wish BD crampons came with this too but they don't so just buy it and stop complaining. Super tough bag and it's much cheaper than a new down coat

      Nice Bag

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've used this bag a few times and have had no issues with it. I didn't experience any ripping, or even "pressure points" in the bottom after use. It protects all other contents in the pack, is lightweight, and easy to zipper.

      Works fine with Snowboard boots

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      It works fine with the snowboard boots, but if the boots nose is too wide (some are wider than others), the crampons may loosen up while walking side-by-side on a slope. So tighten them properly!

      It would be better if the space within the frontal holder, was just a little bit wider, like with the Camp Magix 10, which I own and recommend with 5 stars for snowboard boots use.

      What are the dimensions?

      12x6x3 Let me know if you have any other questions.

      does what it should

      it's a crampon bag. protects your stuff. mesh top lets your gear dry out when you get home. good construction. ain't much to it.

      Good Construction

        So far I've put sabretooths and cyborgs in there and the fit is good. The material on the floor and sides of the bag is heavy and I haven't ever had an issue with holes in them. The mesh top gets caught on the points no matter how you fit them in there, it seems. The holes in the mesh start to get cut on the points after a while. It is meant to air out your crampons but since I stuff the bag inside my pack it negates that feature. You could probably figure out a cool way to rig the bag on the outside of your pack using the daisy chain or loop but it isn't convenient for me on my particular pack and I hate the idea of having a gypsy camp swinging on my back. Anyway, I still take my crampons out of the bag when I get done for the day to dry them out and prevent/remove rust.

        Great Bag.

          Great bag for Crampons. I wish I would have gotten this bag sooner. I also like the fact it has a mesh top so your crampons can dry out and not hold the moisture if they end up being left in the back of the vehicle.

          Works great

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This crampon bag is great. It fit my BD Sabretooths just fine. I like the loops on the back so that you can clip it just about anywhere. I unfortunately lost mine on my last trip and will be picking up another shortly.

          Great bag, uncertain on the mesh top

            This bag is very durable and tough except for the mesh top. Im guessing they did that to let the wet crampons air out but it seems like flimsy mesh that will rip easily... maybe not. I guess time will tell with that. but otherwise this is the perfect companion for my BD 'pons

            Success!

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

            I was a bit skeptical but it seems to be working. At any rate, even if the bag gets poked full of holes it'll keep the points away from my pack.

            Tough bag

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            My small crampons fit fine. seems to work well and looks tough enough for the job.

            The floor is not that strong

            This is the way it look after one use /:

            The floor is not that strong

            Big...but not for long

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            It is big for my BD Cyborg Crampon' but the flore is not to strong and it not for long use ):

            This one's fine.

              My Grivels fit ok in this bag - sideways. They are fully compressed. I tried them the other way and they do not fit as well - they stick out forward and there is a lot of lateral space on both sides. I don't mind, but I can tell that one of the crampon teeth will sooner or later snag the front of the bag since it's hard to keep them perfectly matched up even with the straps wrapped around both crampons.

              This one's fine.

              Nice bag

                I bought one bag for each crampon and then someone gave me the tip to put both crampons into one bag. I was able to store them inside my backback or hang them from the outside.
