There's a guy selling cams locally with a wolf on the tag, they say Camp on them and look like DMM's kind of sketchy if you ask me any info? Justin. S

Wolf on a CAMP tag sounds OK...Camp seems to often sell gear like a distributer for other manufacturers...I have no idea of their cams or who makes their cams now for sale. Maybe they have a deal with DMM? Anybody know more? Woodchuck ATC

Camp sells cams in Europe, not in the US, though. Not sure if they make their own cams or have them made and labelled for them. John Wilder

He wants $400 for 1-11 just seems like I could get a set of metolius an not worry about walking or an all out fail of camming on a wall. Justin. S

The CAMP logo IS a wolf.
So far as I know they make all their own equipment (in Italy, not China), they are one of the larger manufacturers even though they might not have a big impact in the USA. They´ve been around for about 120 years and are a fourth-generation family run company probably best known in the USA for Tri-cams and ball-nuts. they also own Cassin.
Check the cams are the later model, they improved them ca 2010. You can download hi-res photos to check here;- camp.it/EN/template01.aspx?cod...

11 cams for 400 bucks seems like a great deal to me. For a set c4's including 10 cams back country is asking over 600. all the camp gear I have seems well made I would guess their cams would be also. ZackBay

if the price difference is minor i would get the metolius if you want u stems if you are in the USA

metolius colours are more recognized by partners, and they run a resling service for 3$ per cam

U-stems, get a top loading VHS at the same time.
A lot of climbers still use hem but cam s have come a long way since.

Rack
The rack starts with a superlight, full strength gear sling in my personal size (small). Sorry, yet again this is an awesome, crucial gear item that you can’t buy anywhere anymore for some unknown reason. But you can make one yourself by tying a piece of one-inch webbing with a water knot and sewing some fleece padding to it and sewing the gear section into a tubular shape (this is what I did before I got lucky enough to find one in a store once, years ago), or get one made for you by someone with a bartacker (this is what I keep meaning to do for the people in my Indian Creek Clinics–October folks, it could be you!).
Usually I bring:
some small to medium nuts and a light nut tool
cams from blue Metolius up to 3.5 inch size (I prefer Mastercams for the small ones, and then Powercams because they are the lightest), 1-2 sets
biners: everything racked on Moses biners, and 4-6 freebies also
slings: at least 6 of the superlight Mammut dyneema Contact slings, all equipped with a free biner
4 light quickdraws with Moses biners
3 ultralight locking biners
light belay device on ultralight locker

Hi Brian,
I used to use Camalots almost exclusively. They are bomber and pretty versatile. Then I started using Metolius Power cams, Fat cams and the small Master cams. The Metolius cams are so much lighter, that I had a lot of motivation to switch. The sizing is very very slightly different between the Camalots and Metolius cams–at first this was hard for me to deal with, but now I like the fact that I know and have both available. In general, I’m using the Fat cams at Indian Creek (I love the big surface area, and am willing to sacrifice a little bit of weight for it), and the Power cams for every place else, the reason being that they are slightly lighter and have a narrower head, which is good when the cracks aren’t perfectly parallel for the entire pitch. For sizes 00-1, I really like the Master cams, even more than I liked Aliens which is saying a lot. Above size 2, I find the single stem too hard to manipulate when very pumped, and that’s why I like the Power and Fat cams from the yellow size up. It’s much easier to slam the rounded back against your palm when pumped, and shove it in a crack

@ChefMattThaner did you read the rest of the test on Moses 'biners? He states that a test of other wiregates from different brands yielded the same results. Calvino
