The Petzl Quark Ice Axe is a truly versatile technical winter mountaineering and ice climbing tool that can be adapted to suit all conditions and climbing styles. This version can be paired up with the Quark Ice Axe Adze to create a pair of stunning winter tools. If you are only ever going to buy one set of winter tools these have got to be on your wish list. 

Because of the easily adapted hand rests you can set them in the perfect position to suit your climbing style, from out there bold leashless to gnarly Scottish gully bashing, you can always be assured of a secure and comfortable grip. They can also be easily removed to enable smooth plunging into snow for security when mountaineering. In fact, you can strip the Quark right down to the shaft and pick for some minimalist leashless sport.

The shape of the shaft has been optimised for balance and precision and with the top rest placed halfway up the shaft, it keeps your hands out of the snow on steep ground. The supplied pick is tapered to just 3mm to give superb penetration into all types of hard ice and mixed ground and is curved to ensure an easy extraction angle. The lower section features an over-moulded handle to provide exceptional grip and insulation from the cold.

The Quark is massively versatile, well balanced and beautifully made and is the perfect do-it-all ice climbing and mountaineering tool.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
