A must-have for winter hiking

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mtngal40 from Rocky Mountains, Colorado on Monday, April 5, 2010
Yak Trax are my go-to item for hiking in the winter. When conditions are icy or hard packed they give me a little more piece of mind than just shoes alone. I find that they're not so great in warmer snow condtions, as the snow tends to stick to the metal and lumps up on the bottom of my shoes, making me feel like I've got Frankenstein platform shoes on. I'm short, so perhaps this is a bonus; uhhh, I think not. Other than that, they're great. I wore my other pair out so just bought another pair so I'll be good to go for a few more winters no doubt.
  • Best Uses: Hard packed snow, Icy Conditions
