Does what it should.

The BD crampon bag is a good, no frills, way to get your sharp stuff to the snow. I use these bags exclusively to get my gear to the trailhead, preferring to save weight by attaching my crampons to the outside of my pack after that point.

The previous reviewer criticized the bag's size. All of my crampons (Grivel, BD, and Petzl) fit in the bag with room to spare. Perhaps he didn't own a pair of crampons that collapsed in the middle?

My only complaint with this bag is that it could use a bottom sheet that was a bit more stout. I recently opened my luggage after a trip to find a crampon point poking through the bottom of the BD crampon bag. Remember to pack something durable underneath this (or any) bag.

Not too big, but not to small.

This bag is small enough that you need to break your crampons down to fit with in, ( just slide the heel bar back ) I also put my spikes heel to toe so they are facing each other so they don’t cut through. BD makes it just big enough but it can be a pain, especially with gloves on. The mesh vents very well and there are daisy chain loops on the back side ( it would be nice to have only the one loop point and save even more weight ) If your accent requires you to stash your points in your pack before your go, or your just looking not to rip your gear up at home this is a solution to your problem.

Fits and Protects

These things work just fine. All crampons made within the last 20 years or so collapse with the center bar and fit in this bag nicely. Just push them together and put them in point to point. Point to point is also important, as the points can obviously penetrate the mesh and they can work their way through the vinyl. That's not a shortcoming of this crampon bag, that's a shortcoming of keeping your crampons in anything other than a metal box.

I like the daisy chain on the back; makes it easy to lash it to a backpack. It's much more convenient than the rubber tip protectors and if you use it like it's designed to be used, just as effective.

You gotta know when to fold 'em . . .

At first, we struggled to figure out how to get the crampons into the storage bag. After we read some helpful reviews on how to fold and position the crampons - voila! - they fit!

First, we folded down the toe and the heel of each crampon. Next, slide the toe towards the heel to shorten the crampons. We placed the points together (crampons on their side) in a toe-to-heel position. This is similar to how new shoes are packed in their shoe box (though new shoes are typically laying on their side top-to-top, rather than soul-to-soul or point-to-point). Insert into the storage bag, zip it up, and head to the mountains!

Great for anyone but total novices

This bag does exactly what it is meant for and for people who know how to pack crampons (90% of crampons on the market). If it was any bigger or sturdier, the extra weight would be an issue for mountaineers. Anyone who has common sense knows that before you buy a crampons case, specially if you have an older or oversized not collapsable crampons, you check the if it fits before you buy it. Or are they that narcissistic that they think that 99% of the people should have a bigger bag, just because their highness has an odd pair. Unbelievable!

Not for your sneakers

Both my Black Diamond and Petzl cramons fit into this bag. The commenter that tried to fit his loafers into it was exceeding design limits. My buddy has Grivell's that do not break down in the middle, and they won't fit in this bag either.

It's lightweight & does just what it says it does. I too have punctured the bottom of it by crushing it in the bottom of the pack on approaches, but it's smaller and lighter than the Osprey pouch. A great alternative to bungee cords, straps and sharp points hanging off the top of your backpack.

Best Crampon Bag

Can't quite figure out the other reviews. This bag is the perfect size for "new" crampons (unlike older longer bags by OR and Grivel which I have purchased). New as in since the late 90's. They fit my Grivel G12s, BD Neves, BD Contacts and my friends Cyborgs. They don't fit my fully ridged CAMP Foot Fangs. Very durable with a daisy chain to secure it to your pack. Bright orange so you don't loose it in the snow. Does the job well and at a decent price.

This bag is very durable and tough except for the mesh top. Im guessing they did that to let the wet crampons air out but it seems like flimsy mesh that will rip easily... maybe not. I guess time will tell with that. but otherwise this is the perfect companion for my BD 'pons

Best crampon bag I found for the price. Give yourself confidence when you throw these things in your pack. No more punctures, no more muddy dirty mess. I much prefer these to the carriers that you wrap around like a burrito. This is simple and easy in the snow with gloves. Done.

Joshua Moore at on 11/05/2011

I have (3) sets of crampons (2 BD and 1 Camp USA) and they all work fine with this bag. I never had a problem with the punctures but I store them point to point. If you store them that way there is nothing to rip the bag.

Negative Reviews:

Poor design

I have Grivel G-12 crampons with New Classic bindings. This bag is way too small. The only way to realistically get them both in this bag was to take them apart and put them heel to toe. The plastic cloth material is also not that durable. My points poked through, probably because they barely fit in the bag. Also, no good attachment points to lash onto your pack. Bag is too small and not durable. Nice concept, poorly executed.

Small Bag

I purchased this bag to store my crampons and the top mesh and bottom of the bag got torn. Considering your placing very sharp points in a bag like this, eventually it's going to happen. The bag in my opinion is to small and you really have to shorten the crampons as much as you can just to get them to fit and zip up the bag.

Will not fit older fully rigid crampons.

I have Black Diamond Mako crampons which are a fully rigid crampon that does not adjust in the middle and they *do not* fit in this bag. How can BD sell a bag for their crampons when the crampons don't even fit? The bag fabric does not seem very robust, my mono vertical point would poke a hole right through it.

Size is fine, construction is flimsy

The size is fine, but the material is very flimsy and suffered multiple punctures on the first use. Luckily I noticed before the points ripped up the pack they were lashed to.
lasoundguy at REI on 09/09/2009

way too small

The only way a pair of crampons will fit in this bag is disassembled. My size 10 loafers won't even fit in it.

Neutral Reviews:

My Grivels fit ok in this bag - sideways. They are fully compressed. I tried them the other way and they do not fit as well - they stick out forward and there is a lot of lateral space on both sides. I don't mind, but I can tell that one of the crampon teeth will sooner or later snag the front of the bag since it's hard to keep them perfectly matched up even with the straps wrapped around both crampons.

It is big for my BD Cyborg Crampon' but the flore is not to strong and it not for long use ):
