MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars no better traction device made short of full crampons This is my fourth winter season with the same microspikes and are now approaching 2000 miles of trail running.  I get some great stares from folks slipping and sliding along the trails as I run by at full tilt :) I've never had them come off.  They easily pull on and off.  The only maintenance I do is touch them up with a file about twice each winter. In addition to trail running they go in pack early season hiking when there is a good chance… Full review

MICROspikes

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good device in between a Yaktrak and mountaineering crampon. I used a pair of the very inexpensive YakTrax exactly one time and decided to find something more substantial after the YakTrax kept getting dislodged from my boots while hiking relatively tame trails. In my search for a better traction device, but not a full-on crampon, I found the Kahtoola Microspikes. I've used a set of Microspikes now for around three years. Lots of rough, steep, rocky, icy and snowy off-trail stuff here in the foothills… Full review

MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy off and on and great traction, especially down hill. I was stopped on the way down by two hikers to ask me about my spikes because I wasn't slipping like they were.

KTS Steel Hiking Crampons

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Would be excellent, but for a design flaw. Rear cleats are too close together causing an instability when hiking over hard surfaces, such as ice or rock. The Kahtoola hiking crampons shown in the photo are of a flawed design. I bought a pair last year and tried them out in a variety of conditions—ranging from packed snow to icy trails. The length of the spikes make them very good on packed snow, but on ice or icy trails they are very wobbly. This instability on hard ice is caused by the too-narrow… Full review

MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product for winter enthusiasts. These are awesome. They give you such good footing on very slippery ice and they're easy to put on over a boot with the stretch of the upper material. Very good piece of gear. Highly recommended for anyone that hikes in the winter. Full review
