While the positron may not be the lightest quickdraw on the block any more (if it ever was), its budget price and durability more than make up for the weight penalty you experience over newer, sleeker designs.

The two krabs that comprise the business ends of the quickdraw are strong and robust with anti-snag keylock noses, an absolute must have feature in my opinion. They are a good size and should prove no difficulty being used with gloves. The clipping action is smooth and positive. The krabs are differentiated by the lower rope end one having a bent gate and the upper bolt/gear end having a straight gate.

The 14mm dyneema sling that connects the two krabs is a nice balance between thick and thin and can be grabbed relatively easily on a route if the need arises. It is quite well textured, unlike some slippier slings and provides a good level of friction.

For the price these draws are ideal for beginners sport climbing rack and could easily see service for trad too.

  • Strong
  • Durable
  • Cheap
  • Good sized sling
  • Weight

Haute Route is a light carbon fiber shafted classical ice axe. It's very, very light and thus ideal companion for longer expeditions or trips where you need to optimize the amount of gear carefully. While light it's typical high quality Grivel product that does what it needs to do and isn't overly expensive. Haute Route is a very minimalistic axe and for an ice climber, who has used to elaborate grips, the shaft feels rather slippery.

  • Lightweight
  • Practical
  • Minimalistic
  • Good build quality
  • Slippery shaft

Grivel Haute Route crampons represent typical high Grivel quality. They're light, the heel piece is aluminium, but the front piece is steel. The construction is light yet durable where it needs to be. Haute Routes sit tightly on my Dynafit ZZero4. They walk nicely and the orientation of spikes are excellent. The only complaint perhaps are the short front points. As I'm more used to real ice climbing crampons I really would like to have a bit longer front points.

  • Excellent build quality
  • Excellent design
  • Durability
  • Short front points
