I picked up a pair of new trekking poles yesterday - they are heavy and shiny things but for 20 bucks cannot go wrong. Checked out the climbing stuff. All looks like good entry level stuff.

Having dealt with Aldi recently on a professional level and pitched products to them, I can personally say that generally they pick good suppliers with guaranteed quality and value for money pricing. They would not put a product on their shelves that was below a minimum quality standard. So climbing products that look like they are CAMP makes sense - it's where their position themselves - just look at other things like electrical stuff, power tools etc - it's a similar situation.

Buying 14 cause they wear out, stiill cheaper than a quallity pair....

Now thats a great idea! Nothing like a few more emissions into the atmosphere to cool us down.
Far out, surely some more environmental friendly choices would be made by those that are so intimate with it!
Its incredible... I'm amazed at the mindset of this thread.

gah

Went to Aldi at Weston in ACT this morning - all sold out. Someone out there is building a very scary rack :-)

I noticed DVDs of Cliffhanger at the Brisbane Aldi today - but no bolt guns I'm afraid. They still had heaps of chalk bags, and a few belay devices left.

I put in a request for some Aldi ice axes...

Did you ever do that test?
Someone donated one to my test bed the other day - I'll test it next week.

I have a vague recollection of someone doing tests on the Aldi gear. I'm pretty sure it was Mikl.

bomber, and so was the belay plate. I was told they came from a Chinese factory that made keychains

And so were the other chinese screwgates (Kailis) (26.7 kN, rated to 25 kN)

I think the helmets look like rip offs of the Wild Country helmets.
