NANOspikes

rated 4 of 5 stars Love em. I've worn these both hiking and running and they worked great. They are comfortable and the spikes are hardly noticeable. The only downside is they shift to the side, so be prepared to adjust them occasionally. Full review

MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars My wife and I spent a week in the Smokies at the Wilderness Hike Week event January 23-28. The area received several inches of rain then snow followed on the evening of the 23rd, then it was bitterly cold on the 24th. We led a hike up the Ramsay Cascades Trail on the 24th, which was very icy, especially near the cascades themselves. Others without spikes were having a lot of problem and one person slipped into the creek. Brenda and I had no problem at all. We had eight folks on that hike. We also… Full review

MICROspikes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I thru-hiked the PCT last year and bought the Kahtoola Microspikes in Lone Pine at a known gear shop. These were amazing. Be sure to buy the correct size.

MICROspikes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars When snowshoes are too much, but you need a little extra confidence on firm snow and ice, these provide the perfect bite. There I was at the Echo Lake Sno-park near Lake Tahoe. I hadn't been snowshoeing in a couple of seasons, and had vowed this would be a winter I would get out! And it was a beautiful day in perfect conditions. I pulled out my trusty MSR snowshoes, and as I put them on, I realized that the binding straps had some cracks in them, and all four of them snapped before I even got them… Full review

MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight traction for winter hiking. A great solution unless you see enough ice or snow conditions that require crampons. Best worn with a boot that has a reasonably rigid midsole and/or partial or full shank. When I threw these into my pack on Saturday, it occurred to me that I hadn't reviewed them. Though the snow held off and conditions weren't icy enough to need them, Kahtoola's Microspikes are like a security blanket—effectively one of the ten essentials for a cold weather hike that doesn't… Full review
