I HAVE WORN THESE MANY TIMES WINTER(icey) HIKEING AT STARVED ROCK S.P.(ILLINOIS). THEY WORK REALLY WELL, HOWEVER TO KEEP THE POINTS TIGHT TO THE BOTTOM OF MY BOOT I BUY 1 SIZE SMALLER THAN RECCOMENDED. WHEN PUTTING THEM ON STRETCH RED SLOWLY AS NOT TO OVER STRETCH. I'M AMAZED AT HOW MANY PEOPLE HIKE S.R.S.P. WITHOUT SLIP PROTECTION, SUBJECTING THEMSELVES TO 80' FALLS AT ANY TIME.

WHEN TIEING INTO HARNESS I USE A BOWLINE KNOT WITH A YOSEMITE LOCK WITH A SLIGHT VARIATION. BEFORE PUTTING THE TAIL THRU THE FIRST LOOP I WRAP IT AROUND THE HARNESS LOOP THEN UP THRU THE FIRST LOOP FINISHING WITH A DOUBLE SQARE KNOT. THIS IS FAST AND SECURE. IS THERE ANOTHER KNOT AS SECURE?
