Love them, but they aren't perfected quite yet. They would be perfect if they weren't so fragile. I like everything about them, but when you unclip to clean a route and are banging ice out of your screw (not on the threads) or clearing snow/ice with hands the buckles are flopping about against rock or ice and will be destroyed in one day if you let then bang against the ice. That is just too fragile, but I do think they are great otherwise. Too expensive! I'm willing to pay for the best, but $45 for these is a bit insulting. Also, wouldn't it make more sense to have the buckle on the tool and the stud on the wrist section. It would better protect the buckle and you could see the slot in the buckle to easier put the stud in rather than having to move the buckle over the not so stable stud from the blind side of the buckle?
