Customer Reviews of Petzl Fakir Crampon Bag
Not a lot to say really. Bag does the job fine. Fits my BD Neve Pro crampons in fine. Its a snug fit that requires them to be collapsed down to their smallest size but that means you're not carting around an unnecessarily large/heavy bag. The BD crampons are only alloy though and not hat sharp so I do wonder whether sharper steel crampons might go through the material. My friends BD crampon bag has a rigid hardboard insert for added protection whereas this one doesn't have anything like that.
Good semi-rigid case that will take any size of crampon. However, probably best for storing crampons at home rather than being used regularly in the field as the material isn't particularly tough. Puncture marks began to appear after just one outing. Nowhere near as durable as say the Black Diamond Toolbox.
My previous crampon bag was cruelly ripped from my hands by the wind on an inhospitable winter Munro... should have tied it to my bag. Luckily, the Petzl Fakir Crampon Bag has a couple of webbing loops that lend themselves to attachment.
Otherwise, the bag seems sturdy enough and the mesh panel should help things to dry out and hence avoid rust. It fits my Grivel G12s perfectly.
