The CAMP Neve is a solid ice axe for a great price. The Neve comes with a built-in leash and it is the best priced leash/axe combo I tested. It is a classic mountaineering ice axe with an extremely well designed adze. It is one of the top performers in our review.
It performs similarly to the closely priced Raven, Capra and Snow Walker and has slight advantages and disadvantages. It is the best deal for an ice axe/leash combo. The CAMP Neve climbed steeper, firmer snow and ice and self-arrested about average compared with these. It is nearly my top pick for adze performance while chopping steps but was on the heavier end compared with these others. I didn't like the fact that many carabiners wouldn't fit easily in the head. The spike performed a little better than the rest.
