Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pro for most pockets and horizontal cracks I have taught climbing for several years for various programs. Tricams are one of my go to pieces of protection that can always be found on my rack. While they are certainly not a replacement for SLCDs they are cheaper and in some situations they actually work better. When I need a piece for a small awkward pocket or a horizontal a tricam is usually the first piece I will reach for. Tricams do take some practice to place correctly especially when placing them actively with one hand. But they are cheaper and lighter than cams so it is a great way to add some extra coverage to your rack. The smaller sizes up to about a #2 seem more stable than the larger pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific pieces, cary/place on every single climb This review is for the .25 black Tricam. This little guy is a beauty. Though tricams in general take some time getting used to, they are so versatile it's insane. This little black tricam is terrific, and when placed well doesn't move. However, please keep in mind it's only 5 KN when placed as a cam, so not all that much, good for a short leader fall, but not a huge whipper. Also, the chock mode on this cam is only 3 KN, body weight only folks, not ideal. Pros though are the fact that it serves the purpose of the tiny cams with only a tiny fraction of the weight. Highly recommended, just make sure you learn how to place them well. The Gunks were made for these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Despite being new to placing gear, I felt super solid above these things! I picked up a #.5 and #1 nylon tricam back in November for my birthday and just got the chance to use them this past weekend. They were the first piece of gear that I placed on two out of three climbs, and I was only disappointed that I didn't have more to place! They cozied up into nice little spots in the horizontal cracks near the bottom of routes and would have been nice to have up where the cracks started flaring too! ,,,,Only problem, as everyone else mentions, is that your second will bitch at you when cleaning them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Made, Durable, Mulitple Functions, Easy to Place These little guys are great! They can be placed in several different ways making them very versatile and valuable for the price. They can be placed in a caming manor as in the photo above. They can also be placed as nuts or stoppers and function very well as such. My only comment is that they are priced a little high. But then again, what else is priced high these days. Overall, very solid product and I highly recommend them. Especially for those new climbers just diving into the sport of traditional rock climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When nothing else will fit That's when you pull out your brown tri cam, sink it in the flare and take a nice calm deep breath. It seriously comes with me on every trad climb and I always end up using it. In fact all the small sizes are good, even if the strength ratings get pretty low in the smallest ones. The biggest sizes are clunky and look like they have the potenital to really clobber you in a big whipper and they're probably better left at home. If you're looking at a #4, check out a Trango Big Bro, they're the ticket in the big sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They're great at what they do. While I usually find myself reaching for an SLCD while on the sharp end, these certainly have their place on my rack. I have sizes 0.125, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2. The sizes bigger than these are less useful. While I have the nylon ones (which work perfectly fine), if I were to have to buy them again I would get the dyneema ones if only becuase they're cooler. I mainly use these for anchor building. They are very versatile and are a great inexpensive way to fill out a rack. When properly placed these are BOMBER!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome versatile pieces Coming from east coast crags, I never leave these little guys at home. They have two main modes of placement, active and passive. The active mode is great for horizontal cracks where you don't want to bend your cam stem over the lip and also for pockets where the came head is too large. The passive mode makes it great for large cracks that are maybe too big for your nuts. They just fit in places that nothing else will fit. Especially the pink and red sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horizontal Crack Masters THE product to protect using horizontal cracks. They fit snugly and securely with a 100% flexible nylon "stem." Passive or active? No problem! It agrees with however you want to place it. The only thing to worry about when using this gear is removing it as it can get stuck easily and the quality of the rock it will be placed in. Should anything give during a fall, the rock would be first! Practice removals before climbing with them!
