Rated 5 out of 5 by 222llbeanfan Amazing Product!
My first time ever to write a review - but I simply have to! These crampons are AWESOME! Due to this winters lack of snow, our hillside yard is covered by ice. Cleaning up the "you know what" from our 2 dogs had become a treacherous undertaking! With the crampons on I can go uphill, downhill and all around on the ice with complete security. It's kind of funny - the dogs are still slipping and sliding and looking at me as I go straight up the hill with no problems! Thanks for a truly outstanding and extremely useful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Looncove Easy on and off
Was afraid they would be a pain to put on. No problem. Ten seconds a boot. Comfortable to walk in and when I TRIED to slip on our icy road I couldn't.

I hike mountains regularly in the summer but this was the first time I hiked in winter. The crampons were everything I needed them to be for a safe and fun experience. It's opened up a whole new world for me here in Maine when I can't ski!

AFTER SLIPPPING ON ICE AND INJURING MYSELF ON TWO OCCASIONS, WHILE WEARING TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF STABLE ICERS, I HAD TO GET SOMETHING BETTER OR JUST STAY AT HOME UNTIL THE ICE WAS ALL MELTED.
I FOUND THESE CRAMPONS ON THE L.L. BEAN SITE. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH HOW I APPRECIATE THESE CRAMPONS. I HAVE WALKED ON ICE IN DOUBLE DIGIT FREEZING WEATHER AND I HAVE NOT NOR WILL I SLIP AND FALL WHILE WEARING THESE CRAMPONS. IT IS SO NICE TO BE MOBILE WITHOUT THE FEAR OF INJURY.
EVEN IN SNOW THEY ARE GREAT, SELDOM DOES SNOW BALL UP ON THEM, AND IF IT DOES A STOMP OF THE FOOT CLEARS THEM.
THESE I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, THEY'RE WELL WORTH IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gbowman These are worth the money
My wife and I have owned and heavily used these crampons for 3 years now. We hike and run 4-5 miles 3 times/week. When the snow is packed, the snowshoes are replaced by these crampons. They do not come off your feet. They make running on snow and ice like running on black top. They are comfortable and light in weight. When I first received them, I thought that I may get 2 years out of them at best. After almost 3 years, they show zero wear and look as thought they have another 3 years of usable service. I would highly recommend this product for any type of outdoor activity that requires more traction then just a pair of boots. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cusmx5 Great quality and traction
Very easy to put on and secure to the boots. Had no problem with them shifting around on the boots. The long spikes provided excellent traction on ice and hard-packed snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALMacRae Great "mid" crampons
These are excellent crampons for use in hard pack snow and ice if you don't need full blown ice climbing crampons. They slip on easily over my winter sport boots and fasten securely with the velcro strap over the top of the boot.
I used them most recently to hike up a ski slope to shoot ski racing and, both up and down the hill, they worked great. I felt totally secure walking with my 14 pound camera rig over my shoulder, fully without fear of slipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sonnysgal Worth the price
Have worn them steady since getting them. Work well even on solid ice. Have used and worn out several brands and types the last few years. These are by far the best. Just make sure you remove on a rug or outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swillo Great for ice on driveway
We have a 1/2 mile long driveway on a hill which can ice over in winter. To salt it without falling, I use my crampons. They are easy to put on and have a very strong grip on the ice. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rickaren Fantastic!
Fantastic! Just got to use these tonight for first time here in Indiana with six inches of snow, with more on the way. Walked two and one-half miles with hunting dog in open uneven fields with snow drifts (temp 11 and wind chill -7) and no worry that they would come off, like others before. Installed large size on LL Bean six inch ?Bean Boots? that has a raised heel and were size 12. Sure they are expensive but so is hip surgery if you fall! Quality product.
