Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've worn a few other brands of microspikes and the Kahtoola Microspikes are the cream of the crop. I've never lost one and they last forever (I think). I grabbed my first pair 5 years ago and still hammering on them. I now help to train and lead men and women on hikes and prepare them for Mount Rainier and other PNW mountains where we solely rely upon these trustworthy tools.
I not only use them for hiking but also throw them on during those slick winter mountain trail running days.
Don't let those other microspikes fool you with their gimmicks and lower prices. Get a pair of these and keep that smile on your face.
