Just great for trail walking that is covered in packed/ice snow.
SP98005
The toe straps are really far forward, so the front points actually sit under the boot toe instead of in front (you can't actually frontpoint with these).
James
Very well made, very sturdy, easy to put on and function exactly as described.

Out of the box was a well-crafted, heavy-duty (but not heavy) set of crampons. Everything works well, ratchets are smooth and the fit and finish are impeccable. Included Allen wrench works fine on the little bolt on the bottom to adjust the length of your crampon to individal preference. Straps look strong and are flexible. They also included 4 Alpine Stoppers ... little locks that prevent the ratchet from opening up due to snow buildup prying on the latches. These work well and cover for what I assume was a design flaw, albeit a corrected one. The straps look long enough to leave these attached all the time so they do not disappear ... or find a special pocket to keep these safe with the allen wrench.

Two complaints -- the advertising, Web site and the retail box these came in promise a carrying bag. They even post a safety warning to use the included bag (to protect you and your gear from sharp edges). The bag was not in the box. An e-mail to the company brought back a quick response that they no longer supply the carrying bag to save money. They are not inclined to make this good and so basically the advertising and the box are outdated and/or false. Hope they do not get into trouble with the Canadian government (let alone angry consumers) ... fines for that kind of thing are impressive and would probably put them out of business. Seriously, you can't just start taking pieces and parts out of your product to save money. It is what it is ...

If you don't care about getting a carrying bag, then this is moot. It also shows a bit of sloppiness in their business plan so I would not expect this company to be around for the long haul -- figure if these break and Hillsound is gone I just buy some Black Diamonds.

Second complaint is serious ... no manual.

Bought 2 pair for informal guiding on easy glacier ice.

Pros:
Pretty lightweight
Fit a wide range of boots up to 12.5
Easy to get on tight with the ratchet buckles
Worked OK on low angle ice (less than 20 deg)

Cons:
The straps/buckles seem a bit cheap. Don't look like they will stand up to much
abuse.
The points are short, so they have somewhat limited bite.
The toe straps are really far forward, so the front points actually sit under the boot toe instead of in front (you can't actually frontpoint with these).

Bottom line, if you will infrequently cross some ice on a hike, not too bad. If you think you will ever need an ice axe go ahead and spend another $20 for something like the CAMP universal fit crampons.

When I bought these I had never worn crampons as I ad never winter hiked. I went to local hiking shop and this guy was trying to convince me to spend almost $200 on crampons. These have now made 4 of the high peaks in the ADK. No balling of snow and no traction issues in the higher ice areas. My companion had "microspikes" and he had some balling issues but also struggle in the higher elevations with steeper ice. His advantage was in lower elevations where rocks and trail were slippery from a light snow cover I had to go with slippery books because these were uncomfortable out of ice or packed snow areas. I may get a pair of microspikes to carry when I do this again.

Hiked several time with these this winter and have no complaints. Went over steep snow/ice and flat rock without any major issues, could easily run on ice with them. Felt very secure and was able to run circles around a friend wearing micro spikes. They also go on and off in seconds. The rubber balling plates did not even have a scratch on them after having to walk over patches of rocks due to the mild winter. Will need a bit of sharpening now that the season is finished but that is expected, and the spikes are far from worn down. Be careful to always use snug solid boots with these to protect your feet, I ended up lightly bruising the bone on my foot by wearing soft hiking shoes on a warmer day, no fault of the product, soft shoes just allow too much movement and pressure on slopes with where the straps connect to the metal bottom. I would highly recommend these for anyone looking for a solid entry level crampon, this should be enough for most moderate hikers or allow them to try out crampons before upgrading.

I really liked these crampons with respect to their traction properties and on/off ease, but they have a couple of serious design reliability deficiencies that were a PITA to deal with. Then, after less than two seasons of use, one of the plastic heel straps broke for no apparent misuse reason during a hike--which rendered the crampon useless and unrepairable. The first reliability flaw is that the length adjustment bolt works loose (usually at the most inopportune time on a hike) and then is hard to tighten with the allen socket packed with ice. The second design flaw is that the forward pointing strap release ratchets catch in deep snow, and on trail debris, causing the strap to loosen and the crampon to come off; and the afterthought red clips provided to "fix" this problem are easily lost and have their own reliability problem of being flimsy and easily breakable. There is enough gear to pack for a winter mountain hike without having to remember an allen wrench and spare crampon strap clips. Will be replacing these prematurely broken crampons with a different brand of non-climber (i.e. 3/4 length teeth) crampons having a more rugged, reliable strap system.
