Luckily, not a piece of equipment where performance (truly) matters - as found this piece to be low quality and not worth it.
Given it's really only for keeping your axe from piercing your luggage on the way to/from a trip - I'd likely substitute this with a pool noodle or piece of foam from here on out. The adze broke through the rubber on my first flight and you could downright hurt yourself stretching the thing to get it over a longer axe.
I guess for $5 - you get what you get! I'd use a DIY solution!

Verified to fit the Corsa line of axes, including the Nanotech.

Comment on this review:
I have an older "Interalp Camp" ice ax, the adz end is 2.4" wide. Will this fit? Thanks
Hi Steven, the adze end of the protector is 2.75 inches wide so it should fit your axe no problem.
