The second was for a steep ascent hike (i.e. switchbacks the whole way) that was very muddy. I didn't use them on the way up, but I think they were crucial to safety going back down. It's far easier to slip on mud on declines. Never slipped once in these, and they held up fine over rocks (I know you ideally don't want to use them on rocks, but they seem to be strong enough to stand up to my ~200 lbs doing this).
I have been rinsing them off after use and haven't noticed any rusting, etc.
Having seen some people complain of the chain links coming apart, I'd suggest you pre-emptively keep a zip-tie in your kit. I have not had an issue yet, but if I do, I'll just see how the warranty / customer service experience is.
They do come un-adjusted after a mile or so, but this is easy to fix. I was able to keep re-orienting them until they stayed on properly -- I think it's a matter of technique in getting them on, but not too bad.
After doing some research, we decided to get these Hillsound Ultra crampons because they have 18 spikes on the bottom (more than the regular Hillsound crampons or the Katoolah microspikes) and the added bonus of a strap across the top to keep them in place. They also come with a nice bag (that actually fits the crampons very well) to carry them in your pack without scratching your other gear.
Also, unlike their more famous competitor in trail crampons, these seem much sturdier. The other brand's spikes bent on my 2nd hike!
