by zodwee Awesome traction!
I was running circles around people at the dog park in these! Trail conditions were ice with water on top/severe slush. You could walk across a freshly-zamboni-ed ice rink in these and not slip! Highly recommend!

I bought these Crampons for my husband who loves to hike with our dog. With the ice and snow in PA, he could not hike for weeks on end. When he got these, he went out 2 times and said they were AWESOME! He was able to hike 8-9 miles with them over ice and snow.

With inches and inches of solid ice these things are really life savers! Great grip. Can safely walk with no fear of falling!

Rated 2 out of 5 by snowmancharlie They break too easily
I bought a pair size medium of these for my wife as a Christmas present. She wore them a few times and they broke where the chain attaches to the elastic part.
They were replaced in a size large by Bean (thank you) This pair lasted for about 6 weeks before one of the main elastic side straps broke.
My wife loves them as they provide super traction when she walks the dog in our Adirondack snow. She feels very secure wearing them on her near daily walks with the dog.
I gave this product a 2 star review because they do provide super traction. I deducted 3 stars because they really are not very sturdy (imho).

Rated 5 out of 5 by PP01 Fantastic Product
I just recently purchased these and have used them twice and they are great. Makes you want to walk on ice. I live in St John's NL and we get a lot of rain snow mix which results in a lot of ice. What makes it worst is when we get a snow on top of the ice and trail walking becomes almost impossible. I had another pair of cleats which work well but the cleats are a low profile so when I walked on snow covered ice I still slipped. That does not happen with these as the extra depth of the cleats penetrates the snow. I have a size 11 set of Bogs so I went with the extra large but I could have gone with the large. This is an excellent product well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate52 The best crampons ever
I've tried three other clamp-ons, and they weren't substantial enough to keep me feeling safe when I walk my dog in this sever New England weather. Then I tried these.
They are like tire chains for your feet and the metal cleats keep me firmly on my feet in icy and snowy conditions. I definitely recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magyar great on ice
I've very wary of ice as I've slipped and fallen too often, but these crampons give me the confidence to walk the dog on icy streets. They're easy to put on over my boots and stay in place.

by DebJor GREAT INVESTMENT
My best investment to date. It worked extremely well during all the ice we had in NYC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hikermomof3 Must have for winter hiking
These are great. I have used them on icy trails and hard packed snow trails. I feel very secure and safe. They are easy to put on and I like the extra Velcro strap across the foot. This was an excellent purchase for winter. I expect they will get a lot of use over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hjalmer Even better than anticipated
I use the Hillsound Trail Compounds to hike and run off-road trails in the winter in MT. The crampons are outstanding. They work very well on trails with packed snow, ice and mud. They work equally well going uphill and downhill and do not move around on your shoes. I wear men sizes 12 to 12 1/2 and the XL crampon fits just fine. The quality appears to be even better than I had hoped after reading many positive reviews. I would not use them for running on icy hard surfaces (asphalt or concrete roadways). Another product with a shorter spike would probably be better. I have not used them in deep unpacked snow - snowshoes might be better for those conditions..
