Leashes can be very valuable if you’re prone to dropping your skis off a mountain. The Plum leashes are a coiled cable and carabiner that can be hitched to your toe pieces and then to your boot. The length is spot on for a perfect amount of versatility without getting in the way while skinning. It’s long enough that you can the leash attachment point on your boot and still have enough length left over to remove skis and manipulate climbing skins. Also, long enough to forego a built-in leash attachment point altogether and wrap it around your leg. If your ski comes off, the leash will keep it attached to your leg. If your leg comes off, then all bets are off.
These are the same leashes that are shipped with every brakeless Guide binding. Sold in pairs.
