Topic - The price of gear...

Merlin - on 28 Mar 2014

The cost of equipment seems to be escalating rapidly. I earn a reasonable salary yet still I find the amount footwear and crampons in particular cost now is eye watering. I just had a look at the latest offering from Petzl which has an alleged RRP of 250! For crampons! Seriously??!

Shocking...

An example; five years ago you could buy a pair of Sportiva Nepal Extremes for 200 (usually on sale regularly for 180) and Grivel G14s for around 120. Nepals now are commonly 300 and G14s 150.
