You have sharp ice tools? If you want to keep them sharp and also keep that sharp point from ripping holes in your pack and other gear get one of these covers. They're light and work well, also pretty darn cheap. You can pick up a pair for under $10, not bad and cheaper than patching a hole in your pack.
The one I use is just for the pick since I have hammers on the other side like most of you probably do. Bottom line, I usually tape my picks when I pack them for travel, but this deal is nice 24/7, saves the taping and good for use in the field as well.
On the fence? Just get them. I figured being careful was good enough, but recently ripped a big hole in my favorite (Backcountry.com Stoic 2.0) shell by pulling it out from under my pack. :(
Lesson learned: cover the picks!
Thats what it really should be called. Use these guys on my Petzl Quarks. Keep them from going through the side of my pack in transit.
It does what it needs to do. It protects my backpack when stowing it away. It also protects my car from any extra damage when traveling.
