Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used these throughout my travels last season and could not be more impressed with the lightness, compactness and ease of use of this crampon. In the pack, it took up what felt like a quarter the space of normal crampons. On the feet, it felt like half the weight of normal crampons. Considering how much crap a ski mountaineering excursion takes, the size and weight savings not only was nice, it truly makes the day more enjoyable. The dyneema cord-tec seems like a point of weakness but was told that Ueli Steck's 82 alps summits in 82 days, through ice, snow and rock, were done on the Leapords and the cords didn't even have a nic on them. If you're a skier that uses crampons, I couldn't recommend these more. I personally could never go back to traditional style crampons after a season on these.
