BD Contact Strap Crampon 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: stoehnercd, 2008-11-14


As a general mountaineering crampon this crampon out performs many others in its class, however, it has some issues.
I wear a Vasque double boot of which the crampon likes to argue with me to go onto. More than once I have nearly lost my crampon trying to bribe it into work that day. Once on the fit is snug if you get it on just right otherwise its like getting a motor vehicles representative to snap your license at lunch time.
The strap is a bit annoying and I find in the way.
Now the points are strong, durable, and I find stay remarkably sharp on typical glacier travel. The frontpoints can be problematic with good purchase on steep grade ice/snow mixes because they are a bit short.
I would not have any reserves buying another set of these because after a nice cold, angry, windy night stuck in a tent with my partner the unfolding drama of putting on the crampons is nice comic relief.
