Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars A welcome necessity to any slippery slope! I like these crampons so much that I am willing to post a somewhat embarrassing photo of myself scampering up a section of steep terrain, butt in the air. I'm not sure what I would have done without them on the hike in which this photo was taken. There was a layer of powder covering a thick sheet of ice, and as you can see, the terrain was pretty steep in terms of hiking trails. The crampons were lightweight and easy to put on. My feet gripped without any… Full review

Stubai Tirol Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Superbly constructed. It is Austrian made and reasonably priced compared to Petzl, but lower prices do not mean there is any compromises in the safety of the product. It is just not known as good as Petzl and the others do. Tirol is a remarkable 12 point tempered spring steel mountaineering crampon with flexible bar, available with three different bindings: pro step-in binding, combi binding for welt less toe boots or universal binding that will fit almost any footwear for steep ice and mixed terrain.

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This product is best for trail runners who need more traction to get them through runs where they may encounter snow, ice, mud, or all of the above. It could also be used for persons looking for a lightweight hiking crampon. I have used these in quite a few runs as of late in everything from ice, snow, and even a bit of mud in some places and have not been disappointed. They are super easy to put on and take off if the conditions are variable. I use them primarily for trail running and found that… Full review

Petzl Lynx

rated 5 of 5 stars Great crampon for ice and mixed climbing. The Lynx is a peer try classic technical crampon. It fits most boots very well, and cinches in well. I have not had any problems yet with getting it to fit my Scarpa Mont Blancs. I have also lent it out to people to use on Sportiva Trango Extremes, Trango Evos, and even ski boots. They fit all well. I have climbed on these up on WI 4 and on M6. They proved able on both. Switching to mono points was a little annoying and my hands got cold, but that is expected. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 5 of 5 stars They are awesome, much better than the other options out there. I use them for hiking up steep mountain-packed trails in winter and shoulder season hikes when there might be ice. Definitely recommend. The Hillsound Crampon Ultras are a real step-up from the competitor's brand. The spikes are more grippy, the material used to stretch around the boot is superior, and the Velcro strap will ensure no more lost Microspikes! It does happen in certain conditions (learned the hard way). Love the product. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent traction in various conditions — I use them for winter hiking, but have to think they'd be great for trail running, walking, etc. Spike height is tall enough to bite well in snow or ice, but not so tall that you feel unstable on rock faces. My one complaint is that they'll snowball on you in milder temps with wet snow (like many other traction devices). But if the temps are cold, they're awesome. I've taken these on a couple winter night hikes, and have been very happy with their performance… Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 5 of 5 stars This crampon is aimed more towards the trail runner. I primarily bought them for that reason, but I haven't had the chance (weather) to use them for running yet. I used them on a recent hike in the White Mountains of N.H. and they were perfect. Not only were they great for hiking, but even when I thought I could take them off I kept them on since they worked so well. They have slightly shorter spikes than the Hillsound Trail Crampon. My friend had that pair and while they worked well for him hiking… Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Handy product to carry in your pack any time there might be snow — compact, easy to put on/off, not heavy. Used my new Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultras while hiking the Lower Hollyburn Loop last week. They were easy to put on — didn't have to take my pack off.  Once they were on I forgot all about them — didn't feel any difference.  Great traction on the packed down crusty snow. I was the only one who didn't slip going down the gills. And when we dropped to lower elevation, I barely broke… Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Absolutely perfect traction in these. They're really easy to put on and take off, and you barely know they're on, except for the extra grip they give. Make sure to try them on as they fit perfectly on my trail running shoes, but weren't ideal on my hiking boots. Tightening the velcro strap causes the rubber to roll up slightly, though this isn't a huge problem. I'd recommend these to all my friends, despite the latter two points above! I have used these on a couple of hikes in the snow and ice up… Full review
