Having a torn piece of functional clothing mended can be extremely expensive. Rubber Point Protectors by Grivel are a somewhat more sensible investment. The set comprises two rubber protective caps to be placed on the spike of your ice tool. Thus, the caps protect your clothes, backpack and skin from unnecessary damage. Thanks to the integrated metal ring, you can string the Rubber Point Protectors together and attach them to your ice tool so they wont get lost. A really worthwhile investment!
