Great traction

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Occ Doc from Utah on Monday, May 12, 2008
I use these during the times of the year when snow has melted and refrozen and they work great. They feel very secure. Other reviewers have complained about them wearing out prematurely. Next year will be my 3rd winter and there's no significant wear on mine yet. I take mine off as soon as I get off the snow and ice, to avoid mud or pavement where I think they'd be most susceptible to damage. I have a hard time picturing them as being very durable, as the review categories seem to imply, for climbing or bouldering - that seems a bit misleading. If you keep the use to ice and snow, I think they would be reasonably durable. The cost [$] is well worth the greatly reduced risk of falling on ice. I just bought a couple more pairs so I can take friends on walks and to have for when mine do wear out... someday.
