The Kahtoola Microspikes Carry Bag is a simple Nylon bag designed for storing your microspikes in. Microspikes are compact enough that you could easily just sling them in a handbag or rucksack but with wet, dirty, sharp spikes you run the risk of damaging the other contents of the bag. The Microspikes Carry bag is the perfect companion for our most popular pavement crampon.

I ordered Kahtoola Microspikes. This carry-bag was included as a special offer from Facewest.
The Spikes fold up as a pair and neatly fit into the bag. There is not excess room which would lead to the Spikes unfolding. The material seems robust enough. However, as an added precaution I have found a suitable plastic bag to use as an insert. The idea being that after removing Spikes on the fells, they are likely to be wet and maybe dirty. The plastic bag should help to keep this main bag clean and add a little more protection from the actual spikes.
There is a handle at the closed end to aid pulling the spikes out of the bag. i have no doubt this will work, but my use of a plastic bag insert seems to make withdrawing the Spikes much easier.
This is a really neat little bag which keeps the micro spikes from spiking everything else in your pack. Just the right size to keep them compactly packed.
The perfect accompianant to the excellent Kahtoola MicroSpikes.
Great little drawstring bag for keeping your Kahtoola Microspikes in- it's just the right size to keep them packed away and not let them expand As you carry them around. It's made of nylon and tightly woven enough to stop any spikes poking through so you can pop it straight into your rucksack when you're carrying the micro spikes around. It's water resistant so it helps prevent the contents of your rucksack from getting damp and muddy from the spikes once you've taken them off after tramping the icy hills.
There's also a strap on the bottom so it's easy to grab onto this whilst you pull the micro spikes out of the bag.
Simple but well made and handy. If you're going to get the microspikes you may as well get this too- much better than wrapping them in a cloth and carrying in a plastic bag!
Nice product. Robust and well sized so it will stuff into your rucksack without taking up too much space. There's a handy grab handle on the bottom too. There really isn't too much more to say other than it stops a load of spikes on chains tearing up your expensive, technical fabric pieces quite nicely.
A great little bag for my spikes, strong and light weight and it protects the other contents of my rucksack. Ordered with the spikes and received 2 days later and no charge for postage - Fantastic service
Buy with the microspikes to prevent them from damaging other stuff when not wearing them. Why would you not order it with the Microspikes? In my opinion it should have been standard with every set of Microspikes...
Anyway, you get a nice package deal when bought together with the microspikes.
What more can I say - it is a bag and does a nice job of keeping you and your stuff safe from the spikes.
Does what it says on the tin. Or webpage. Make the most of the 50% Facewest discount when buying with the Quads (applied at checkout). When packing, fold the two sets of spikes with the spikes facing inwards (as they're packed in the box when you buy the actual spikes). I've found this way there's little chance of the spikes coming through and damaging other stuff. Oh, and when you're wearing them you can use the sac for all your other rubbish filling your pockets!
To make full use of the Kahtoola Microspikes Quad in the outdoors, and particularly in this country, you need to carry them with you 'just in case'. Routes which may not traditionally have that much snow and ice, but which may still hold some into the spring at higher levels mean that a carry bag is therefore pretty much essential to protect the rest of your gear and equipment from getting inadvertently 'spiked'! The Kahtoola MicroSpikes Carry Bag does the job effectively, though given that in my opinion some form of bag is a must, I would have liked to have seen this included with the actual spikes themselves. Well done to FaceWest for the incentive of 50% off the cost of the bag if you also buy the Microspikes Quad at the same time!
The bag itself is durable enough and will certainly protect both the Microspikes and your kit. There is a drawcord to secure the bag and a carry handle at the opposite end to secure it / retrieve from the depths of your rucksack. Personally, I would have liked to either seen that handle at the same end as the drawcord or have an additional one. There is scope for you to lose your spikes as you take them out of the rucksack, if the drawcord wasn't secure, as you would be dragging from the opposite end to the opening.
Sturdy, Cheap (Half price from here with the Kahtoola spikes) and ideal for what it is intended for. The fit is perfect and the closure secure. Not a lot more to say other than you'd be silly not to buy them if you have the microspikes.
