The STABILicers Hike XP are perfect for the snow and ice on sidewalks or trails. Easy on and off makes them useful where the conditions may vary from snow/ice and then transition to hard surfaces where you want to just remove them. They slip over your winter shoes or boots easily.
- Easy on and off
- Excellent traction
- Fairly expensive
These slip-on traction devices worked very well this winter while we were walking in our neighborhood in Truckee, California. Although the roads were often plowed, the surface of the road, and our sloping driveway remained covered in hard packed snow or ice making it very hazardous to navigate.
The Stabil Icers HikeXP worked equally well on irregular terrain as we hiked around a local lake and through rolling hill trails.
Quite easy to get on and off. Loosen the Velcro straps and insert toe of shoe or boot into the front and then pull the back over your heel. Then tighten the straps. So easy you would be perfectly happy putting them on or taking them off during a hike or walk as conditions dictate.
Sizing is easy employing the chart. I wear men's medium width size 9 shoes and the medium fit perfectly and snug so that they did not move while I was wearing them.
