The Grivel Crampon Safe is a tough nylon bag for storing crampons and other sharp items in a safe way. It has a double zip opening and a mesh front to allow gear to dry out, as well as a double reinforced bottom. The zip has a large loop making it straightforward to get into when you're wearing gloves. The loop allows you to hang your crampons up for storage, a good idea to prevent rusting.
Customer Reviews of Grivel Crampon Safe
I have two of these and use them for both my Grivel Airtech Light Newmatics and Grivel G-12 Newmatics.The safe works really well with the former but not so well with the latter and I can't seem to stop the front points still polking through the fabric at the edges and thus snagging on other kit in my pack.They also don't really allow you to reduce the overall size of the crampon to pack smaller.Not a disaster, but would have hoped for better functionality between two Grivel products.
Great :) used the same one last year when I hired crampons. Used recently and was very pleased with the crampon bag. Twin zip is a nice one handed action, easy with gloves on. Velcro is VERY sticky keeping things safe. Very pleased and would recommend.
I bought one of the Grivel Crampon Safe bags for my G10 walking crampons some time ago. I was so impressed with it that when I got a pair of G12s, I ordered another one. I am a 45/10.5 boot size and the crampons fit neatly into the bag with toe to toe and heel to heel and the straps wound around them. The bag can then be popped into my rucsac along with clothing with no danger of the crampons causing any damage. A bit expensive but worth it. Recommended.
Having read reviews of other crampon bags I though I would give the Grivel Crampon Safe a try. But it was neither long enough, deep enough nor wide enough for my crampons (12 points for size 45 feet). People with crampons of smaller dimensions shouldn't have a problem. Having said that the zip does not run the whole length of the bag, which I think would make it quite fiddly to get both crampons in the bag, particularly with cold hands. Facewest reimbursed my account without any fuss even though I was somewhat slow in returning the item.
