Product Description

Amazon.com

The ICEtrekkers Diamond Grips provide aggressive traction in all winter walking conditions, from boilerplate ice to backcountry snow and everything in between. As a result, you won't slip while walking to your car in the parking lot or working in tough snow conditions. They grips are also effective when transitioning through gravel, rock, and mud from icy surfaces. Made of case-hardened steel alloy and strung on steel aircraft cable, the grips' patented diamond beads have hundreds of biting edges that grip in all directions. With the diamond beads, it's almost impossible to slip. The Diamond Grips are also easy to put and take off thanks to the tough rubber sling, which fits almost every footwear type, from athletic shoes to work boots to dress shoes. And the sling remains elastic even in subzero temperatures, so you needn't worry about the grips falling off in deep snow. Diamond Grips are even self-clearing, so there's no snow or ice buildup.

I hike in a group which uses microspikes, yaktrax, and screwshoes. I bought there ultra traction Diamond Grips last week ($36) and have used them on two three-hour hikes in Boulder. Right now the conditions are very mixed- Hard glare ice and crunchy ice in the morning, slush and fresh snow on the way down two hours later. On very hard clean ice I was slipping a bit when the angles were greater than 20º, but the slide was predictable and I could get a perfect grip by doing a bit of a toe kick to set the chains. There was no pack-up on ice and cold snow. Traction on deeper snow and slush was good.
With snow that is more wet mixed with debris there is some pack-up which can be kicked off. Traction on wet rocks is better than with shoes, though I try to step on dirt to reduce grinding. I'm using a Medium size on a low-profile 8.5 size men's boot, and the rubber mount kept the grips planted very well, didn't need any adjustment over the four mile hike. One review which was running-specific commented that the rubber strap which goes over the toe compressed the shoe uncomfortably onto the toes. I can see this with a mesh running shoe, but with a normal hiking shoe with firmer toe this would not be a problem.

Micro-spikes seem to have the most traction of these strap-on traction options, but they clink more, and the rubber mount is not as secure, which allows the toe chains to flip to the side sometimes. Overall they are a great option for very steep hiking on unpacked snow and hard ice. Retail is $60.

Yaktrax have good all-around performance, but their durability is the issue. The coils can roll on rocks too giving an uneasy feeling. They are good for running as they are light, but have the least grip on glare ice.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
Bought these mostly to wear while walking our big, quick-paced, powerful dog on the icy roads. They work really well! Our footing is sure and secure and we don't worry about slipping anymore! These are somewhat easy to put on; they do require a few firm tugs, but even with arthritis, we are able to manage this. (Eventually, we just used our old pair of boots for these and left them on. It was quicker and easier each day.) They are fairly comfortable to wear; you know they are on your shoes, but we can still walk comfortably and pretty quick-paced. They are lighter than most ice cleats are on your shoes. They stay securely on your feet while walking. As for sizing, the sizes stated fit most shoes and slimmer boots, but if you wear bulkier boots, such as Sorels or Kamiks (or are in the upper limit of the size range), you will need/be more comfortable in the next larger size. These seem very well-made; as for durability, we walk several miles per day and after about a week, we've noticed considerable wear on the diamond spikes, but, so far, they still work. We don't think they will last more than a winter, if that, but even so, we have bought another pair and can't imagine walking on the slippery snow and ice without them. Good product; best we have found/used so far. Would like to see more durable spikes, but will definitely buy again! UPDATE: Well, I have to lower my rating a bit, from 4 to 3 stars. Depending on road conditions, such as more or less bare spots versus ice/snow coverage, a pair of these lasted about 3-5 weeks, on average. We did not always wear them daily, especially later in the winter. One would break, then the other soon after. We were able to fix many of them to extend their usefulness by piecing the good parts together.Read more ›

Got these in time for the big blizzards of 2010. Definitely helped while shoveling snow and on the ice after re-freeze. They seem to work better than yak-traks. The diamond chain design seems to have more grip than the coil designs. These seem to be more durable as well since the area that takes the most damage (bottom of shoe) is made of all metal. The only complaint about these is that they seem to be rusting. I thought these were made of a metal alloy that prevents rust, but obviously they're not. The rust doesn't seem to affect durability, but they do mess up your floors with rust stains. I have emailed the manufacturers, but they have yet to reply. Will add update if/when they do. Also a word of advice ... try to wear these only when there's snow/ice, otherwise the cement sidewalks seem to wear down the sharp edges of the chain.

I bought these last winter 2010/2011. I like the design & they grip really well - not too aggresive like full spikes. The only thing I didn't like was they broke after 1 winter season. They snapped where the wire was crimped. Typically well after the 12 month warranty! Considering they're supposed to be durable/quality, I was quite disappointed. I contacted the company's warranty department to see if I could get them recrimped & got no reply. I also added a review similar to the above to their Customer site, & funnily enough, it didn't get published. Overall - great design, but not durable & at $40 plus, you can't use these as yearly disposables. Also, bad marks for their Customer service.
