3. Grivel G20 Plus $249.99

Ultra-light and designed for steep ice and mixed climbing, the G20 Plus are high-performing crampons ideal for crack joints and resting on the slightest holds. Even with two center points to increase stability, they are still the lightest technical mono-point crampons in the world taking you further and higher.

4. Grivel Dark Machine

Attention to detail has made the Dark Machine the top ice tool available. The
full carbon handle and G-Bone carbon-composite shaft weighs this tool in at a mere 490g. Designed for waterfall ice climbing and featuring one of the smallest grips on the market, you’ll be sending hard all winter.

5. Zamberlan 3030 Eiger

The 3030 Eiger seamlessly integrates the BOA® fit system into the boot’s gaiter in a patented design towards enabling a perfect, personalized fit in all conditions without removing one’s gloves. With BOA’s® system, the Eiger delivers a fast, customized and durable fit built for performance. Carbon fiber midsoles further reduce weight and increase performance. Vibram® Penia outsoles offer durable grip and integrated, fully-automatic crampon compatibility.

Refined to the essence of what’s truly necessary for success, this bomber, 100% waterproof Dyneema® Composite Fabric pack features a no-frills main compartment. External fitments secure crampons and ice axes, and options for gear loops or pockets on the hip belt complete the theme of well thought out accessibility to tools.

7. Beal Ghost $109.99

Special attention was used when creating the Beal Ghost, an ultra-lightweight, yet comfortable, harness for expert climbing and mountaineering. It applies optimal pressure distribution on your hips and thighs to ensure comfort. This light, versatile alpine harness was designed to fit all of your gear even with a pack.

8. Grivel Duetto $159.99

Innovative, light and dual-certification for both climbing and ski-mountaineering activities, the Duetto features an innovative stealth multi-facet design with an adjustable fit.
