Reviews

I've owned several Yaktrax, before buying the FreeSteps6. If you're looking for a great light and durable traction device these will do great!

Pros

  • Easy to pull in and out
  • Light
  • Durable

Cons

  • Tiny snow balling, depending of the snow.
  • Feel the crampons under the foot

Great traction for walking aroud the house, onto frozen lake, easy to intermediate hikes. For jogging I still prefer my hyper light, not as durable, Yaktrax Pro.

Best of both worlds.

Pros

  • Rubber and metal on the right places
  • Reasonably priced

FreeSteps6 looked and listened and incorporated the good and corrected the flaws from existing designs. 

Source: bought it new
Price Paid: under 40 bucks

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!

Pros

  • Quick to throw on!
  • Very sturdy!

Cons

  • Have ripped off my feet when running in sticky, deep snow.

Source: tested or reviewed it for the manufacturer (Keep it!)
