    Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Pro Crampon:

    bought 2 sets 1 for me and my son and had used to climb Mt Cardigan in Orange NH. worked very well on the trails,brooks and streams (iced over). very easy to install to ANY shoe nothing special to buy like to more high end ones. place heal and toe, run the straps through and wratchet snug but not to tight and ur off and running. have yet to try ice climbing as for like water falls with them but as for brooks and streams these are awesome for the money. went back and bought 2 more to add a friend or 2 for the next hike. :)

          Used the crampons on two Adirondack climbs last week and found them to work great, both ascending and descending on steep ice covered rock. No complaints at all.

          Not getting a third strike

          By Paul the Hiker

          from Boston, MA

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Easy OnOff

          Cons

          • Break easily

          Best Uses

            Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Pro Crampon:

            I bought these over the other options because I liked the ratchet buckle design. Unfortunately the inside buckle of the right crampon broke 4 miles into a weekend long winter trip. EMS replaced them - no questions asked. The second pair held up better than the first, but ultimately the left-rear attachment between the strap and base broke. I can't take chances with this kind of thing and they won't be getting a third strike. Switching to CAMPs.

            Best Uses

            • All Nontechnical Climbing

            Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Pro Crampon:

            I've used these 3 times since purchase on packed icy snow and glare ice. They are extemely sure footed on ascent and descent of steep, icy and snow covered trails.
            Descent, inparticular, is a pleasure due to the placement of heel spikes at the back edge of the heel. This prevents any slipping as you place your heel down. There is no rolling of the spikes as there can be with competing products.
            The binding system is great, and very easy to use with gloves on.
            The only reservation I have is that in the instructions that come with the crampons you are cautioned to only use stiff soled shoes as flexible ones may bend or break the metal bracket that connects the front spikes to the sliding adjustable bar. I never saw that warning on any web site or reviews while I was searching for crampons.

            Put these to the test hiking around the upper and lower Kaaterskill falls in the Catskills NY.
            40 degrees, Ice, packed snow and water everywhere. Started out Cautiously as with any new gear and after a mile of ups and downs I started trusting in these, even side stepping up some steep stuff they stayed in place. They are a step above yaks and spikes. Climbing Crampons They Are Not, But good on icy trails.

            Best Uses

            • Ice
            • Shallow Snow

            Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Pro Crampon:

            I ultimately went with these for a hike up to Mt. Adams this past weekend (Feb 18). Snow in places was 5' with mixed ice. On steep inclines the spikes just weren't long enough to provide enough grip to move forward. My snowshoes had more grip than these. Anything that required toe-in climbing just didn't happen. If you are walking on very packed snow with ice on top or just below or just ice alone on a low grade you'll be fine. Otherwise go for the Diamondbacks.

            • Easy approaches
            • Mild Trail Walks

            Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Pro Crampon:

            I was never a fan of Microspikes because they always balled up on me. I felt my 10 and 12 point crampons were overkill on some of my easy hikes. So these seem to be the ideal thing. The points are very mild and will be easy for most people. The buckles are quick and easy to use and seem to hold well. They barely fit my size 11 Koflach boots, but they do fit. The odd thing is with the length properly adjusted, the furthest rear points sit almost to the center of my heal. It has not caused me a problem though. The quality is not bad, but does not come close to a real crampon. I would never trust these things on a 4000 footer, but they are not made for that. They do work great on easy stuff and walking the dog. They have definitely replaced my microspikes.

            These crampons seem to balance strength with lite weight very well. Construction is simple and easy to use. Don't know how they could be improved. They seem perfect for intermittent use. They attach easily and quickly.

            Pros

            • 10 Spikes
            • High Quality
            • Rugged
            • Stays Put

            Cons

            Best Uses

            • Hard Pack Snow
            • Ice
            • winter hiking

            Comments about HILLSOUND Trail Pro Crampon:

            Rugged, not as light as I thought they would be, good for the serious stuff that's not high Alpine. They stay put and don't shift, easy to get on-off once you do it a couple of times. Felt very comfortable for miles with a full pack on hard-pack and iced over conditions. Heavier, more spikes, and a bit more agressive spikes, than Katoola's, thus the higher cost. Look like they will last a long time. Good for what I do.
