User Review: Kahtoola Microspikes
Microspikes are in my pack every winter. The rubber stays flexible in cold, the spikes are good and long, and they fit over my size 14 boots. A bit hard to pull on, but that means they don't shift on inclines either.
Would I go up really steep snowfields? No, probably not, but for scrambling and iced up trails when snowshoes are overkill.. these things are worth the price.
