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 aj12920 Great on packed snow and ice
I bought this instead of the kahtoola microspikes. I love that there is velcro on top. Have used it on steep slopes in packed snow and icy conditions. They were great. Easy to put on and take off and stays put.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RCap Early Spring Hike
I bought these crampons to take along for some early spring hiking in the lower White Mountains (Franconia Notch area). Very glad that I had them, as within 0.5 miles the trails were coated in thin layers of packed snow and ice. These made all the difference, really dug in and provided excellent traction. Were just as effective on the way down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hikah great value
I choose these over competitor brand, because of the velcro strap.
Helps to prevent accidental pull off of spikes. Also the spikes are about 3/16 taller than competitor brand. Extremely happy with these micro spikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KDoutsider Effective and easy on/off
These trail crampons are most effective, secure devices for winter walking. They are very easy to apply and remove, providing stable footing in the most treacherous, icy conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aj12920 Great for hiking in snow and ice
I bought this to do trail hiking during the winter. It worked wonderfully on a steep hike with thick sheet of ice and packed snow. It is easy to put on and take off. I was worried about it bending on rocky sections without snow or ice and they seemed to do fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clmlm Out in ice and snow get these cleats!
I went for a winter hike on Pleasant Mt in Bridgton, ME this past weekend and these cleats were amazing. The trail had hard pack with areas of soft snow, ice covering rock slabs and deeper drifts. Never slipped once, they were extremely light and not awkward or getting stuck on roots like full crampons. However, at the ridge, I really needed my snowshoes but that was my fault for leaving them in the car. There was excellent grip on the ice covered rock. I highly recommned these for any snow/ice adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SnowSportsman Fantastic Trail Walking Crampons
I recently used these to hike from Pinkham Notch up to Hermit Lake shelter on Mt. Washington. The trail was covered for long stretches in many sections with smooth ice. These crampons were totally reliable and comfortable and allowed me to walk effortlessly up these sections. They are easy to put on and durable. Comparable in cost to instep crampons but much more comfortable and more stable. The only disadvantage is that these have to be sized for the boot whereas the instep crampon can adjust to any boot size.
Worth their weight in gold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tary Easy to use-work great
I wore these on a 2 hour hike on icy snow and for a shorter time on flat, bare icy areas & they were excellent! Never slipped once. Fit well (I wear size 8.5 shoe). Easy to put on & take off, comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WoobiesAlpacas Super stability, traction, and fit great!
We live where there is a lot of ice & snow and the Hillsound Trail Crampons work better than any other product we've tried!
