Definitely worth it for your next winter outing

I was very impressed with how well these worked on the inclines of snow-packed trails. Rather frustratingly, I managed to trip over myself halfway through a hike, and wound up cutting through a bit of the rubber harness on one foot. Still, they managed to stay mostly in place and provided more than enough traction. I’ll certainly be picking up a new pair soon enough.

Great product, great service

Vermonters are tough on their trail crampons. I’ve owned and abused several styles and brands over the years - none better than these from Hillsound. Great customer service as well, if you ever need it.

Great on the trails

Borrowed a pair for a hike and loved them so much that I purchased my own pair. They fit my boots perfectly and offer extraordinary traction. Highly recommend.

Best Crampons

Have bought several Hillsound Crampons and still using them for several years. Now bought Hillsound Trail Crampons for a friend as a gift. I am sure she will love the.

These are fantastic!

The crampons I bought enabled me to walk all winter on the packed icy lane without hesitation. At least two people who saw me out walking have ordered the same ones I have after I told them how great they work!

Almost Perfect

Bought these as I already had a pair of lighter duty running cleats from another company. Only been able to use them once so far, but the traction they gave was incredible. The spikes punched easily through the icy packed snow I was on and dug into the solid ice below with a satisfying crunch on every step. Only thing I'm not completely won over by is the velcro strap that goes across the top of the boot. It seems to be a bit of an afterthought on these cleats. There aren't even cut outs to loop them through so you have to wrap it around the entire rubber upper which can cause the rubber to bunch and twist.

Very useful

I walk on trails in the woods daily. I could not hike barebooted in icy conditions. I am amazed at how these crampons allow me to do so. Easy to get on and off. I am very happy with purchase!

Trail Crampons

Order processed and shipped very quickly. Trail crampons are working as expected ad step above microspikes.

I like them

They are very nice ! The only question I got is: "how do I maintain them and to prevent rust"? I used them twice and they are already rusting :/
