            I took these right out of the box on a 6 mile hike last Winter, and I found one had broken the rubber support at the end of the hike. I contact Hillsound, and they would not replace the broken crampon. I phoned them and sent a photo of the broken crampon. There are better alternatives out there, by organizations that stand by their products.

                Interesting there are so few reviews, and people continue to praise microspikes. In my view, there is absolutely no comparison. Hillsounds take you where you would never dare with Microspikes.

                  Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Crampons:

                  Bought these for two reasons. I'm not real comfortable hiking up/down on hard thick ice and the typical microspikes slipped. This product has a more aggressive spike and does the job even on very cold hard ice. The points are longer and easy to file a new point.

                      Great product felt much more safe in these over microspikes. They have a great grip on the ice.

                        These are equal in traction performance to Microspikes. I prefer the Hillsound's because they fit my boot better than Microspikes.

                          Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Crampons:

                          Bought these for winter hiking in the Catskills. Already own Kahtoola Microspikes but had heard good things about the Hillshound Trail Crampons. Like the idea of the velcro strap for added assurance they won't fall off in deep snow. Only used them once so far on light ice condiditions and will be anxious to see how they perform in "real" winter condidtions. They have more crampons on the heel than the Microspikes, which should be helpful on descents. Think there are more conditions they would be appropriate for than Microspikes but still not a real crampon, which is absolutely necessary for some condidtions.

                                These are great, no more guessing if there is ice under the coating of snow. You walk on trails as if it was summertime!!

                                      Right out of the box, I did a 7 mile hike. When I took off one of the crampons I found that on one, the binding had broken. I emailed 3 times and had to finally call Hillsound. They gave me a bunch of hoops to jump before they would replace the broken crampon. I threw the broken one away and gave the complete one to my brother as a spare. I will continue to use my Glacier Chains, that I have hiked over 100 miles in with no problem.

                                      I purchased these crampons as a step up from the micro spikes. These offer a little more grip hiking around the mountains in the winter. Wonderful product and easy to use - love them.
