Summary

I've owned several Yaktrax, before buying the FreeSteps6. If you're looking for a great light and durable traction device these will do great!

Pros

  • Easy to pull in and out
  • Light
  • Durable

Cons

  • Tiny snow balling, depending of the snow.
  • Feel the crampons under the foot

Great traction for walking aroud the house, onto frozen lake, easy to intermediate hikes. For jogging I still prefer my hyper light, not as durable, Yaktrax Pro.
