The Grivel Simple Double Spring Leash does exactly what it says on the tin. Easy to use by larks footing to your belay loop and then attaching ice axes to the leashes with wiregate carabiners. The leashes are elasticated, this prevents tangling and keeps them neatly out of the way as you climb. Should you drop either axe it will not be lost and you won't be up the creek.
Please be aware that this leash should not be used for belaying as it is not load bearing. It is not supplied with carabiners.

For anyone that's considering going leashless I highly recommend getting the Grivel Simple Double Spring Leash. It allows for the freedom of leashless climbing without the fear of losing an axe half way up a route. Also while the standard Grivel Double Spring Leash retails at circa £40 the Simple version is only £15 and the price of a couple of snap links, which you probably already have. The other major plus in my eyes is that unlike the biners supplied with the standard leash your own snap links can be used for anchors etc in a pinch. A great product at an unbeatable price.
I have been very impressed with this leash, which I purchased to use with my Petzl Quarks. I chose the simple model because of its cost and I wanted to add my own karabiners, as opposed to having the ones provided on the more expensive model. This was partly because I wanted lightweight snapgates to keep the weight down. The only minor negative that I can see with it so far is that it doesn't have a spinning type system (I considered the Black Diamond Spinner leash as an alternative), so the leashes can potentially become twisted, although in reality this hasn't yet been a problem with good management. Definitely a good value purchase to try leashless climbing.
