Aspiring Chalkbag Belt
Beats using a bit of cord.
Beats using a bit of cord.
NZ made (20m of 25mm tubular webbing) and made to last. Has a nice tensioning system that doesn't require knots and is easy to take down. Everything needed is included in the kit.
Organize gear into useful, easy to sort parcels.
A soft bag makes packing simple.
Works well. Price pointed, but a little harder on the hands than the Dobi.
Choice of two sizes, nice to see natural bristles on brushes.
Of all the caps we've had over the years these have been the best and most popular.
Nice tape, handily split into two different widths.
Great fit, fingers not too long like most gloves. Save the hands when belaying and rope handling. Incredible value for money.
Makes a great toiletry bag!
Something to play with in the office, it does work! Used to use an old tennis ball back in the day.
Handy for keys etc, comes in two sizes.
A great liquid chalk, very good for humid conditions.
An aluminium version of the Jive Wire, comes in two sizes.
Nice, black with the BD logo. Has hole for cord.
A compact little kit with room for a few extras if you wish.
The best poles I've ever used, handy when carrying a big load to the crag!
Great value, slightly wider than the thin (1.25cm) Beal tape.
Protects that expensive new guide book, it clips onto your harness so you can keep it handy while out and about. Large fits most NZ size guide books. Small fits pocket sized guide books.
Most small accessory carabiners break - this one won't (4kN). I love my ones.
The best rope cleaning brush I've ever had.
Comes in two sizes and five colours. Not to be used for climbing.
The perfect device for when the lead climber outweighs the belayer.
Could also be useful if you have an inexperienced belayer, or are just paranoid about being dropped!
Has had good reviews, designed primarily for sport climbing.
Once every year or so I'm glad to have one.
I keep one or two in the bottom of my chalk bag. Surprising how many naked bolts are still around. Must be used with a full sized solid gate carabiner.
Can't break, can't come undone - bombproof.
If you hand jam, tape makes a big difference and this is the best I've used.
For the fashion conscious. Exactly the same tape as the white, but now in four colours.
Comes in a two-pack, same colour range as the hand tape.
Works individual fingers if necessary and the opposing finger action is better for injured hands.
As good as any I've tried. Had two wrecked hands, put balm on one, but not the other - huge difference in recovery time.
Dry clean shoes do make a difference.
Nice and deep, but I would want to tie it on!
Fits best in Petzl harnesses, which have a slot for it, but can be used with most harnesses. Gives more racking space - seen a few rockclimbers with them.
Easy to adjust one handed.
Safer than the single adjust.
Recommended for heavy users or those on the road.
Petzl toiletry bag, can also be used for crampons.
The best way to carry spare batteries is in another headlamp, carry it in a Noctilight! The Noctlilight doubles as a carry case that converts to a lantern.
A great idea.
Look after your rope and it will look after you.
Carabiner hole makes this knife popular with instructors.
Petzl make the best rubber sling keeper out there.
A clean rope handles better and will last longer than a dirty one.
Combine with a DOBI rope brush and your job is easy!
Made from stainless steel and made to last. Clips and unclips draws. I think this is one of the best stick clips I've used, screws onto most poles.
Great for nut tool, wire brush or whatever else you don't want to lose.
These are some of the best belay glasses I have tried.
Ideal to wear over all glasses. Just flip up if not required. So much better than stacking or swapping between glasses.
Bright, colourful (choice of three colours) well priced.
