Just throw your loaded screw cannon on the heater when you get home and let everything dry out through the open sleeves and bottom drainage hole.
Our tapered, staircase sleeve pattern keeps hangers from snagging while maximizing storage space.
A wide-mouth opening, easy cinch-cord and staggered screws makes grabbing them with gloves a breeze. No fumbling with zippers or pull tabs.
- Slanted slots allow for nesting of hangers, reduces bulk, and increases screw capacity.
- Marine grade stainless steel grommets for drain hole and cinch collar keep gear secure.
- Less than half the weight of standard vinyl screw rolls for the number of screws carried.
- Urethane coated polyester is highly visible and waterproof.
- Bartacked haul loop allows for secure connection to harness or anchor for gloves, jacket, food, pitons, or extra ice screws.
- Open bottom slots for drainage lets you leave everything inside when you get home without rusting.
- Heavy duty 1000D Nylon fabric bottom for increased abrasion resistance.
- With screws removed, it can be use used as a stuff sack for belay jackets, tag lines, and SO much more.
Super durable and easy to use. The cannon is thoughtfully crafted and makes for a versatile tool when out climbing!
Have used it on 2 trips so far. Packs horizontal or vertical w/out screws moving around. Material seems a good weight and holds belay puffy as they show. Best of those I've used so far.
If it ever broke, I’d probably get another one.
This ice screw holder does it all! Here are the top reasons I bring it along on every mission:
-Easily fits in a ~24L pack along with other gear
-Packs down small once empty
-Doubles as a stuff sack. Can stash snacks/puffy and climb with it on your harness, forgoing a backpack
Size and weight:
-Just over 100g, goes unnoticed
-Alpine size has slots for 12 screws w/ options for extra long ones in the middle. You can dump everything inside if you’re on the move or use the slots with more time
-Can keep all screws and draws together inside —I’ve fit 13 screws and 13 draws. This “lead kit” can be tossed to whoever’s climbing next and keeps all the wet gear together
-Bright color makes it nearly impossible to lose in the snow. The neon really pops!
-Sturdy, waterproof fabric means you can shove the bag in your pack without cutting up or soaking your jackets, which always sucks!
-Rigidity lets you stand it up on its own, so it’s easy to stash or grab gear while racking up
Packed with useful, streamlined features, HMG's thoughtful design results in an ice screw case unlike any other on the market. Highly recommended!
This is a well thought out and designed screw case. I’ve spent the last 10 days using it at work and have been pleased with it. The spiral staircase style internal tubes are easy to manage, and allow for room in the sack for at least 12 screws. In fact, I managed 4 stubbies in the bottom of the bag along with a bunch of spare parts and a short file. The best niche products, like this one, are built by end users who understand the need.
The EPX 200 fabric is durable enough, and is still light enough to take into the mountains. For professional users and full time guides, I would suspect it will fill the need of being light enough, but still good for protecting the drill on the screws, and those screws that have sharpened threads. I did have a screw drill push through the cannon (I don’t use the ice screw caps) and tear my pack. It’s taken 40+ days to have this come to fruition and I don’t think it’ll be a regular occurrence as I did jam the screw cannon down into my pack.
Overall, a solid find and it would be a solid purchase for someone in the market. This makes the BD screw roll up and the Petzl Octo obsolete. Case closed.
