QC Lab: The Archives
Before any piece of Black Diamond gear makes it on to the shelves, it spends months, sometimes years getting put through the wringer by our team of Quality Control engineers. Through extensive and meticulous testing, both in the lab and in the field, the QC Lab team help ensure that you can count on your BD gear to be as durable, reliable and as strong as possible every time you head into the mountains or out to the crags. Our QC Lab posts aim to answer some of the most common gear-related questions.
