Ok so instead of buying another well known brand I decided to give Yaktrax a shot, what a mistake! While attempting to summit Mt. Marcy on 10/30/10 under blizzard conditions I blew a chain which caused me to lose tractions when I needed it the most, then another chain popped and finally came off my foot and was hangin on the back of my boot. I tried to repair it but under 50mph winds I was unable to. Then trying to get down the ice covered rock without traction was the most dangerous thing I have done in a long time. This could have resulted in a serious accident. Use these only for walking on flat ground Do Not attempt to use these above the treeline even it there is only a little bit of snow and ice. Complete Failure.
