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.
