    High Capacity, low weight, and multipurpose

    Originally I was turned on to the HMG Alpine size Ice Screw Cannon by its high capacity (12 screws +), lightweight & durable EPX 200 material, and the options to throw in a few extra screws or other tools. When loaded, there is plenty of room inside for an extra pick and front point or two, file, and toe/heel bail. On route, I found it as a good place to throw an extra pair of gloves or two or some snacks, and a great place for ~40m tag line or throw bag. I weighed it in at under 100g, lighter than lower-capacity single-purpose sleeves.

    I've also found a use for it in the summer: to hold tools and hardware when updating old routes and replacing bolts and anchors, as well as a convenient sack to hold a windshell, mini headlamp, some snacks, buff, sunglasses, and other personal items for moderate-length multi-pitch routes.

    great for storage on and off the wall!

    We use these for storage in the gear room as well as out on the wall for our ice climb courses. The high-vis fabric is great and super durable. The Alpine size is perfect for bigger objectives, we love the smaller add-ons for the basic courses that only need 2-4 screws. Looking forward to using them for seasons to come.

    Love this thing!

    The ice screw cannon is absolutely amazing. Before HMG, I’d tried 2 or 3 other brands and honestly hated all of them. The screw cannon is both impressively functionally designed, durably made, and comes in rad stylish colors. I’m stoked on it!

    Very useful tool!

    I have now used the screw cannon several times and find it very useful. I load it with screws and then put my gear in the center. Once I've arrived at the cliff/climb, i can stuff a layer in it and clip it to my harness! Very practical and useful!
