        Comments about YAKTRAX Walk Traction Systems:

        bought a pair for walking our dog in the winter, and immediately bought some for every member of our family. We have a long driveway, and walking up and down to get the mail, etc. in icy conditions is dangerous. bought a different kind from Bean last winter, and are not as easy to put on and do not feel as secure. Yaktrax are the best!

              Comments about YAKTRAX Walk Traction Systems:

              Pleasantly surprised with how well they fit and how comfortably. (I was at the top of a size category and was afraid they might be too tight. They were not.) Fit well over boots. Has helped in sidewalk walking; have not had a chance yet to use in park hikes. My only problem is remembering to bring them with me...plus I don't want to wear them in stores, etc., so I sometimes avoid using them for short trips.

                      Comments about YAKTRAX Walk Traction Systems:

                      I purchased my first pair after too many near falls at work. But they only lasted one season. The salt ate threw the rubber. and it was hard to get them on. Next year I tried the ones with the strap to hold them on the shoe. didn't work any better and it cost me more. Still only lasted one season. Next year, I got a size larger. Not because I got smart, but because they were on clearance and it was that or a large. That would have been too big. The Medium was perfect. they didn't wear out in one season either. Now I am getting a pair for my elderly fall prone Mom. They fold up easy. the one size up will be easy for her to put on and take off. and she can stow them in her bag. I'll give her a little zip lock freezer bag to keep them in so when its messy out they won't get her bag all messy when she gets inside were she is going. Because You CAN NOT wear them on a smooth floor. its like walking on ice with out them.

                          Unfortunately these don't help at all on ice. You still slip.

                                5 years ago I slipped on ice and broke my ankle badly. Someone told me about YakTrax. I wish I knew before my fall! Subsequently since then I use them whenever there's any really slippery ice or the chance of it. Don't want to jinx myself, but haven't slipped and fallen since then! I can feel them grip the ice. Only cons are: YakTrax are slippery on hardwood or tile; They tend to build up with some kinds of snow; IF used often they do wear out in less than 1 season.

                                    A friend recommended these when we were going to go hiking in the snow / ice. I had never heard of them before but gave them a try. They exceeded expectations! I felt sure footed and had good traction / grip the whole time. I even used them later to go for a walk when it was icy out (what a winter we have had this year!). I would recommend these for anyone...just managing snowfall from home to work and errands, they are extremely helpful.

                                          - to walk on snow and ice
                                          - gained confidence because of reduced slipping and sliding - it's great
                                          - it's not so great when I have to keep removing it upon arrival at destination because it is very slippery indoors - I walk from one place to another often

                                          Comments about YAKTRAX Walk Traction Systems:

                                          The product concept is terrific. I love these and use them every day around the horses in the winter. The only problem is the rubber frame doesn't hold up. The break after about a month of full time use. I buy several pairs throughout the winter. I have tried every model, and they all break. I recommend them, just don't expect them to last very long.
