not as durable as expected

Verified Buyer Reviewed by cyclox from NY, NY on Tuesday, January 26, 2010
Bought these for walking around town (have crampons for vertical backcountry ice). They worked fine on ice and compacted snow around town. But, after only a total of a mile or so of use, one of the bands on the bottom of the yaktrax snapped. My guess is that the band twisted with each step due to the design and, over a short time, this resulted in failure of the band.
