User Review: Yaktrax XTR Extreme
Price Paid: $40
They did a great job in 6" of Smoky Mountain snow. On my return hike I ran into two hikers who were following my tracks, envious of the obvious "bite" I was getting. They mentioned they were slipping a bit and had to check out my XTRs. They added them to their wish list.
You're glad you have them when crossing streams - ice, snow, water, wet rocks... Very easy to put on and off, not once did they feel like they were slipping off.
