Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These spikes provide great traction while hiking on icy trails. They are easy to put on and take off, especially while on the the trail. With these on my boots I am able to hike at my normal pace no matter how much ice is encountered. They make a huge difference. I forgot they were on my boots until I got back to the trailhead.
