Kahtoola NANOspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Nanospikes are a super versatile traction device that work on snow, ice, rocks, and pavement. I purchased these for hiking in Colorado in the winter. I wanted a traction device that would allow me to go back and forth between snow/ice and rocks/dirt. Nanospikes fit the bill perfectly. I never slip, even on solid ice (though I do make sure my foot is firmly planted with each step, to set the spikes.) My traction on rocks and pavement is unaffected, and I also appreciate that these tiny tungsten carbide… Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Easy slip-on, easy slip off, won't fall off. Well designed and durable. I bought two sets of these. They are easy to put on, easy to remove, yet won't fall off thanks to the silicone band they use for the foot mount. Easy to learn how to put them on—I learned in seconds where the front and rear were, and there's a pull tab on the rear to facilitate this. Silicone and all-stainless construction of the metal parts make these extremely durable for use. The spikes appear to be case-hardened, a necessity… Full review

Kahtoola NANOspikes

rated 4 of 5 stars Like them very much. Fit very snug. I can place them in my backpack and don't have to worry about damaging anything. Has kept me safe on ice and snow. Thanks again. Full review

Black Diamond Camo Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Well this is most perfect head lamp I have used so far. Small, easy to use, good for climbing, caves, trekking. Four-season use, any time of year. I recommend this headlamp for all uses. Range: More than 20m Beam & Brightness: The beam focused. You have button to select wide or pinpoint beam. Burn Time: Well when I put new battery in it lasts for more than 10 days of use every night. Power Source : You need 1 minute to replace battery. It use 3 x 1,5V AAA.  Ease of Use: Very easy to use and… Full review

LED Lenser H7.2

rated 5 of 5 stars These are great headlamps. The new LED Lenser H7.2 and the upscale H7R.2 bring even brighter adjustable top range illumination. The new LED Lenser H7.2 replaces the H7 with a 250 peak lumen rating (300 for the H7R.2). At maximum setting it is rated at 175 yards, which I have found to be accurate with fresh batteries. The newer model takes four AAA batteries, one more than the older H7. With any battery powered device you have to accept that most of the time it operates somewhere less than full power… Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for ice or any hard pack surface. Wear with any boot—hiking, pac boot, and even big, bulky Muck boots. From flat trail walking with your dogs to light mountaineering to ice fishing with your pals, the MICROspikes will NOT disappoint. Outperform other traction devices in the class not considered 10 point crampons. I've used on a variety of surfaces from packed snowmobile trails walking my dogs to Maine/New Hampshire mountains where there is often ice on the trails at different times throughout… Full review

Black Diamond ReVolt

rated 5 of 5 stars A solid, well-built performer that eliminates adding batteries to your shopping list. I've had my ReVolt for about three years and after relatively heavy use it still operates perfectly in a wide range of conditions. Having had a fair number of headlamps the ReVolt is the one I'll go back to again. The ability to recharge with a USB cable before a trip via my computer, a wall socket (no included adapter), or in the car on the way to the trailhead is a feature I won't ever give up. I still carry… Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 4 of 5 stars Best all around traction device for icy and winter hikes. I bought myself a pair of Kahtoola Microspikes after moving to New Hampshire for school. There are many days where I find myself on hikes that require more than bare boots, but less than a full-on crampon. Most summits here are coated with rime ice/snow for a good portion of the year, even while the trails are free of snow. For these situations, I find having the Microspikes is not only helpful, but an essential safety tool in the mountains. Full review

Sheet Metal Screws

rated 5 of 5 stars I've been doing this for years!! Never a problem at all. Cheapest and best solution out there. No review really necessary here. It's quite self explanatory. Other reviewer said it all.  Full review
