What The Mountaineer says: A must-have for any Adirondack hiker. Perfect for packed-down hiking trails when snowshoes aren’t needed, slippery approaches to ice climbs when crampons would be overkill, or even walking down your icy driveway in the winter! Easy to put on over almost any type of footwear, including ski boots.
What Kahtoola says: When you encounter challenging terrain – scree, ice, snow, wet rocks, slick sidewalks – just take them out and slip them on. No special straps, no laces, no fuss – just the confidence you need to get directly from where you are to where you want to be. They fit easily over most any footwear and offer secure ice traction to keep you moving. Pack them up, pull them on, and go.
