After one season, the slider bar snapped in half. Both the store where I purchased them and I tried phoning Hillsound without success in getting through. The phone just rang and rang. No voice mail Hillsound? Love the crampons when they worked but very disappointed with the lack of service.
I bought these crampons and they are the best I've ever had! They are easy to fix and light. Congratulation and thanks to produce GOOD equipment that gives us the opportunity to get high level of performance! Thanks! Monique :)
j'aimerai acheter 2 paire de crampon une pour ma femme pointure 7 a 9 et pour moi pointure 9 a 11
Used these on the PCT in 2011, a record snow year. I led on most cross slope traverses for my group. The rest of the group wore Microspikes. I led as I had better traction on ice and compacted snow, so I would lead and cut in the footholds. Easy to put on and comfortable. Good stuff and I highly recommend them. Only casualty was one of the pull cords.
I wear a size 10 (US) boot, and I ordered the regular size crampon with the intent of putting them over my LaCrosse snow boots. They weren't even close to fitting, and had to send back & exchange for the XL. Looks like great construction, just not big enough. Posting so other people don't have the same frustration.
