Black Diamond Sabretooth Pro

rated 4 of 5 stars Not a slip-on crampon. Once I figured out how to properly mount these on my boots they work great. Size up the crampons to your boot, lock it in. Getting on and strapping in can be a pain. I've used them a couple dozen times, most recently a hike up Mt. Katahdin. Once I figured how to strap them in properly they stayed tight and using the fine adjustment helps. I use them on Koflach Arctis Expe boots and Scarpa Jorasses Pro GTX boots.  Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon

rated 5 of 5 stars Sharp, lightweight spikes make me feel secure while running on the icy roads in the winter in Colorado! I couldn't ask for better spikes to use on icy terrain.  I live in Colorado and run 3 mornings a week when the roads are nice and frozen over.  I have NO fear of slipping and falling when wearing these.  Best part is, I can't even feel that I'm wearing them!

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 5 of 5 stars My FAVORITE crampons! I wear these crampons several times a week for winter hiking and trail running. They are AMAZING. Very lightweight for trail running, yet sturdy enough for any type of terrain! Full review

Hillsound FreeSteps6

rated 4.5 of 5 stars SO FAST to throw on my feet, and very quick to remove! I LOVE the Freesteps for light hiking, walking on icy streets, and even trail running! Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro

rated 3 of 5 stars I have had these for three months and have used them during my quest to complete the winter 46 in the Adirondacks. First the pluses: quick on and off, length of teeth, carbon steel, anti balling plates. The negatives: the attachment system although quick is ill designed; the 4 alpine stoppers are a solution to a design problem that is inelegant and frustrating when having to use in freezing temperatures. I have lost a crampon on the trail without these stoppers and find that the ratcheting system… Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nothing nano about these spikes. When the trail turns to ice and you need traction that will stick to it, the Hillsound Trail Crampon delivers. Flexible enough to fit a variety of footwear yet securely attached for serious terrain. The Hillsound Trail Crampon combines great traction with a harness that is easy to use and functions well. This is a testament to their design, which clearly took into account the issues less well thought out crampons can bring. Snug secure fit even on less bulky boots. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon

rated 5 of 5 stars I feel like Spiderman when I wear these! Complete security on icy conditions. My husband I were avid snowshoers but hadn't really ventured into winter hiking. We had some light traction devices by some no-name company and on a whim we headed out to hike using them. We survived that hike but realized we wanted something more substantial for traction. I researched the Hillsound Trail Crampons and decided they were our best option. They are super easy to get on over my winter hiking boots and have… Full review

Kahtoola 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. They were amazed by the traction from my Kahtoolas. Easy to put on and take off even with cold fingers. Full review

Kahtoola 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
