User Review: Yaktrax Pro
Source: bought it new
Compact devices ideal for established packed snowy trailways.
- Good traction on packed snow/ melt ice trails
- Not suitable for scrambling on icy rocky bluffs
I had meant to write this review back in the winter, but alas, work intervened...I have been using Pro's for some years and find them the best overall choice for packed snow and intermittent melt ice on trails. They work well for may on the north slopes on Sierra east side trails in California as well hiking the local peaks behind our home city of Vancouver.
I have found them to be less than ideal on scrambly rocky bluffs, but to be fair this is outside their intended use. The other plus is I can scrunch them into a pocket or waist pack for trail running outings.
Overall they continue to be a go-to piece for me.
