    Does anyone know of an Australian shop that sells Plum? Specifically, after 90mm crampons for my Guides..

    Might want to take a look at this product as likely not so simple to buy Plum crampons here but the Skeats have proven good value as well as light plus useful here and overseas. Also more readily available and versatile if you have more than one ski. https://www.wildernesssports.com.au/search?q=SKEATS

    Skeats are a useful backup, and def better than nothing, but they do require your ski to be flat on the snow. If you were switchbacking up a steep icy slope you'd be on edge generally and i reckon crampons would be preferable. Just my 2c!
