Voted 5/5

what most of you need, like $4..the other one is $9 at backcountry.com and covers the axe end as well if you don't have hammers

these are nice to have you your not on the mountain..ie when your traveling to and from. On a pack, I find that they get in the way

I'm not convinced that I like this. It doesn't seem to fit all axes the same ways and will sometimes fall off. It does work well if it fits though.
