I am using these to walk down the packed snow and ice dirt road on which I live which was treacherous before I received these and put them on for the first time today. I also proceed to the local snowmobile trails ( Northeast Kingdom Vermont ) which are at the end of my road. I couldn't be happier. I ordered the size Small because I was putting these on my snow-hiking boots. A very good snug fit and the top strap is great. I had no slipping on my brisk walking surfaces and my little very strong rat terrier did not pull me over, don't laugh I am a waif and distance runner so his pull is significant. At 63 years old, this is great insurance against injuries that could disrupt my running and hiking, a small price to pay considering the extremely high cost of sick care.
This is my go-to traction device for winter trail running and early spring conditions on trails. They also work very well in mud. The additional velcro strap keeps them more secure.
I’ve got hundreds of miles on my trail crampons and love them! They are light and comfortable, the only way to stay stage on the ice and snow.
Lightweight and easy to slip on. Love the strap for additional security. Fit on my trail runners and boots. Hike year round in the rugged Adirondacks and these work perfectly giving you the traction and confidence you need!
The Trail Crampon Ultras have been excellent while ascending and, more importantly, descending the steep mountain trails where I live. I blew apart a different company's "microspikes" in just one outing - literally spikes that weren't torn from the plates were bent over. The Ultras, though, show little wear even though I've gone up the same trail (Unnecessary Mountain). They go on easily and have stayed secure without sliding around on my trail running shoes. I'm online now to see if they have them in small sizes for my 10 year-old who sometimes accompanies me. Obviously, I highly recommend these.
