Winter trail running confidence
Reviewed by Andrew M. - December 15, 2018

Likes: I've been using these for winter trail running in snowy/icy conditions and they're phenomenal. I have total confidence bombing icy downhills that would otherwise be impassible.
They're easy to put on and take off.
The included bag is a nice touch: don't have to worry about the spikes ripping through my vest.

Dislikes: Not a thing to dislike about these.

A good product
Reviewed by David O. - February 4, 2018

Likes: Definitely helps grip the ice

Should have bought these years ago!
Reviewed by Tom S. - January 17, 2018

Likes: Where to begin?
1) Easy to put on
2) Comfortable to wear
3) Stays on my boots / shoes
4) Outstanding traction on rock, ice, packed snow, frozen dirt

I feel like a gecko with these things on. I can walk normally and confidently on ice and packed snow. They're fairly lightweight, don't pack full of snow and are generally very easy to use. I use these on the trail and even when I'm out snow blowing if things are icy.

Dislikes: None. These things impressed the heck out of me.

great product
Reviewed by Beth J. - December 19, 2017

Likes: They fit great and last. This is the 2nd pair I have purchased. I wore the last ones out.

Dislikes: In wet snow a snow ball gets created under your foot sometimes.
