Kahtoola Microspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Well worth having for any type of hiking! I use these 100% of the time and they are a necessity for winter hikes. The Microspikes are not only a necessity but imitation spikes absolutely do not hold up to these. The benefit of having these on during a winter hike or even just around the campsite is tremendous. I suggest everyone has a pair and don't debate whether you should wear them or not, just put them on! Great product. Full review

Kahtoola Microspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars The Microspikes are incredibly handy, easy to put on and take off. When they are on the snow, ice, scree are no problem nor do they slow down your hike. I never had a pair of track shoes or spikes, so I didn't know what to expect. I knew I had to get something because with only my hiking shoes on hard snow and ice I was sliding and falling. I had no traction nor was I having a good time on winter hikes. Even hiking in scree I had traction problems. Several hikers I was with suggested getting traction… Full review

Kahtoola Microspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars In northern Vermont, our "between seasons" hikes can be marked by variable conditions, including frozen ground, ice, glazed snow, or anything else Mother Nature throws at ice. Footing can be quite treacherous, even on local trail networks; the Kahtoola Microspikes have allowed us to hike longer hikes, more challenging hikes, and in conditions where without the spikes, we would have stayed at home. The spikes are easy to put on; back is marked clearly, and the front has a bar (though sometimes I… Full review

Kahtoola Microspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Easy to put on, good traction in snow and ice, stays put. I love to hike during the winter. What I don't love is falling on the ice. Almost every time I have hiked in snow and ice, I have slipped onto my butt at least once. That is until I purchased the The Kahtoola MICROspikes. My first time out on them, I had to pave a trail in the newly fallen snow. Not so bad until I got to the steep part. The Kahtoola spikes kept me from slipping even once. I love how easy the rubber upper attaches to my Ahnu… Full review

Kako IceTrekkers Chains

rated 3.5 of 5 stars We have had four pairs of Ice Trekkers for three years now. This season the rear ring on five individual chains has broken. Anyone else have this problem? Are replacement rings available? Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars A welcome necessity to any slippery slope! I like these crampons so much that I am willing to post a somewhat embarrassing photo of myself scampering up a section of steep terrain, butt in the air. I'm not sure what I would have done without them on the hike in which this photo was taken. There was a layer of powder covering a thick sheet of ice, and as you can see, the terrain was pretty steep in terms of hiking trails. The crampons were lightweight and easy to put on. My feet gripped without any… Full review

Yaktrax XTR Extreme

rated 2 of 5 stars Fell apart the second time I used them. Seems like a poor design. I bought these last year for a hike in the Adirondacks. They seemed to provide good traction on pretty icy trail up Cascade. Went back this year to do Algonquin and half way up the trail the front section metal pieces ripped off the rubber piece joining them together. I expected them to survive more than two winter hikes. Full review

Stubai Tirol Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Superbly constructed. It is Austrian made and reasonably priced compared to Petzl, but lower prices do not mean there is any compromises in the safety of the product. It is just not known as good as Petzl and the others do. Tirol is a remarkable 12 point tempered spring steel mountaineering crampon with flexible bar, available with three different bindings: pro step-in binding, combi binding for welt less toe boots or universal binding that will fit almost any footwear for steep ice and mixed terrain. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This product is best for trail runners who need more traction to get them through runs where they may encounter snow, ice, mud, or all of the above. It could also be used for persons looking for a lightweight hiking crampon. I have used these in quite a few runs as of late in everything from ice, snow, and even a bit of mud in some places and have not been disappointed. They are super easy to put on and take off if the conditions are variable. I use them primarily for trail running and found that… Full review
