Review: Mystery Ranch Thread Bed

Keeping your ice screws organized and protected is essential for any ice climber, and so is preventing damage to other items in your pack. The Thread Bed from Mystery Ranch offers a new take on consolidating your screws and will keep delicate items from getting torn by sharp points. This bag can hold one 22-cm screw for v-threads, along with nine shorter screws for protection. A hardy retention flap keeps the screws from sliding out, and mesh material at the bottom allows them to dry after you're done climbing. The bag also has two pockets—one zippered and one velcro—for storing spare picks, pitons, files, wrenches, and any other little items to supplement your kit. You can fold the bag in half and cinch it closed with an elastic loop, or leave it flat for a low profile in your pack.
