The new key-less feature to adjust length works well, though I never had an issue with the earlier version's adjustment as they fit my boots snugly without using the tool provided.
I learned quickly with the first pair (the hard way) to wear gaiters with these, especially when I'll be descending steep terrain. The spikes are very sharp and if a spike snags in a loose fitting pair of snow pants, you can loose balance.
I highly recommend the PRO version as the anti-balling feature works well and is a must on icy snow.
The spikes on my first pair have not needed sharpening even though I've not been gentle with them. I expect the new pair to last a long time, plus I now have an extra pair as backup.
. Fairly light.
. The XL actually fit my size 14 winter boots.
. Quick on/off bindings.
. Bindings are not reliable enough for true Alpine use
. The "Safety" clips (Not shown in the pictures, but are small red clips that slid onto the straps) are critically necessary. The reason is that if the snow is 4"" or deeper, it can force up the Quick Release latch up and the Crampons fall off. Which also means that the clips must be "snug" or it will happen anyway.
. Like all Crampons these work best on heavy boots that don't flex much. I used these on day hikes with my Trail Runners and the bindings don't grip the heel, but instead grip the toe and the instep. This allows the heel to rise 1"-1.5" if you walk fast, which is OK, but lengthen your stride and they can fall off. (Annoying)
. Allen wrench needed to adjust. Just another piece, like the safety clips to lose on the trail...
Summary: Good Crampons for occasional trail use. MUCH more reliable than the slip-on Mircospikes, which can slide off when traversing a hill. (They will, trust me...don't use them) Not designed to compete with the serious Alpine Crampons, so the smaller tines are just fine. One star off because if the bindings were improved these would be a slam-dunk for hiking crampons.
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)
The straps/buckles seem a bit cheap. Don't look like they will stand up to much
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.
Only problem I had was on long descent they bothered the top of my feet where the straps meet.
