Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

Wanted a protector for my Raven Pro BD Ice Axe. This worked great on my Rainer trip and also aided in attaching the Axe to the built in Ice Axe loops on my pack. Quick and easy to use and for Rainer it was very light, so I took it with me to base camp.

Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

Works well Easy to use Cheap This provides peace of mind that you wont accidentally put holes where they shouldn't be. I wasn't sure if it was really necessary when I bought it, but am SO glad I did.

The basic "no-brainer"

By Steven

Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

Weighing in at 36 grams on my scale, there is no reason NOT to buy this along with an axe. Perfect for storage and transport. With the shock cord, it is easy on and off. Don't waste time and shipping charges looking for anything else, THIS is the axe protector to buy.

Protection for your tool!

Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

Simple, effective design protects classic ice axe pick and adze during travel or on backpack. Fits both my old BD axe and C.A.M.P. Corsa very well and is super adjustable. Quick adjust for on the fly use.

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

    Bought this to protect surrounding gear and objects from the pick/adze of my Black Diamond Raven Pro; mostly during storage at home. It doesn't cover the entire edge of the pick, but definitely covers enough to greatly reduce the chances of other gear getting damaged. It fits the Raven Pro perfectly, it's secure, and it's easy to adjust. Five stars.

    Cover your axe

    By Rex

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

    Let me axe you a question. Does your ice axe ever get damaged or dulled when transported. Then you need to protect you axe with this amazing axe protector. Even if you fall on your axe it won't stab out your kidneys so that's a plus!

      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

      Thought this was supposed to be a universal fit. I have an older set of black diamond prophet straight shaft ice axes that I want to use for mountaineering. This fits well enough not to fall off, but does not full protect. It would fit a regular mountaineering axe.

      Great protection for your axe

          Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Axe Protector:

          Well, as with most my axes, I would always end up poking something with them. Rather it be my packs or myself, those sharp points always found a way to snag something. The BD pick/adze protectors are a great way to keep those sharp points covered during storage or transport. Just make sure that your axe is dry before storing, as the plastic will hold moisture and rust will form all over your adze and pick. Just air-dry everything really well beforehand and you're good to go. Overall, they're easy to use and do their intended job well. They look quite durable and I can see them lasting many years of use.
