Spike Protector is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Todor from Spike protector It seems solid, secure, and lightweight when used on a conventional BD spike. I say seems because I haven't flown with it yet and so far, have only done one road transport. While it is designed for conventional spikes it also seems to work for the different spike style of the BD Raven Ultra ice axe; I'll be buying a 2nd Spike Protector for it instead of messing around with improvised protectors. I've used BD's Axe Protector on the head of my Ultra for years and it has been fantastic. I expect the Spike Protector will be just as good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amanda from Good, but... This works well, although I wish there was a better/more secure way to attach it to my axe (BD Raven Pro). There have been a few times so far that the spike protector has popped off when the axe is bumped while attached to my backpack or in the trunk of the car. Glad I got it though! Definitely nicer than rigging cardboard, etc. up every time I take the axe somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julien from Really glad I bough this If I hadn't bought this, I would have spent way too long rigging pieces of cardboard and duct tape to keep my axe from poking through my bag, clothes, friends, pets, etc, only for it to quickly fall apart. Save yourself the trouble and file this under "no-brainer"
