Good to Go

Are you hiking during the winter and expecting to encounter hard snow pack and ice? These crampons do not need a dedicated mountaineering boot and are easy to adapt to your hiking footwear. They are light and compact enough to put in your pack. Not intended for full-on mountaineering or ice climbing, but they will fit the bill nicely for trail and off-trail use and they are definitely burlier than a microspike type traction aid.

Fantastic on icy trails

By

I recently used these hiking in the high peaks of the Adirondacks on very steep, icy trails and I was pleasantly surprised at how well they dug into the ice. The straps cinch down nice and snug, once you get them situated on your boot properly. I put on the locks (which prevent the racket from undoing accidentally), but did run into the problem of the locks freezing, which made then difficult to take off (once they thawed, they were fine). Overall, well worth the money for more aggressive, icy conditions.

Great Crampons

By

Got these for a trip to Dolly Sods. Had 18-24in of snow. Used snowshoes for most of it but other areas I wore these on ice covered sections of the creek. Easy to put on. No issues.

Just what the Catskills requires

By

For my purposes, hiking the mountains of upstate NY, these fit the bill perfectly. Easy to put on and easy to take off. Don't forget the alpine stops. They don't come with a bag. You'll need one. Also, the Allen wrench should have a hole in it to allow you to attach it to your bag or pack so as not to lose it.

Are you hiking during the winter and expecting to encounter hard snow pack and ice? These crampons do not need a dedicated mountaineering boot and are easy to adapt to your hiking footwear. They are light and compact enough to put in your pack. Not intended for full-on mountaineering or ice climbing, but they will fit the bill nicely for trail and off-trail use and they are definitely burlier than a microspike type traction aid. I've used them during a winter ascent of an 11,500 ft peak and encountered packed snow, ice, glare ice conditions and even did some moderate side hilling. The crampons did well and didn't slip, on ice or on my boots. I did have one issue when I was postholing in deep snow. The buckles released. This is due to the ratchet design of the buckle but Hillsound provides a device with the crampons called an "Alpine Stopper" which prevents the buckle from releasing in deep snow. I, unfortunately, forgot to pack them along in the crampon case and I had to stop and periodically check the bindings. Otherwise a great product. These are not designed for ice climbing. The crampon is adjustable but you need an allen wrench (supplied) to do so. It's recommended you fit them to the shoe you are wearing before starting your hike. Once I fit the crampon to my boot and tightened the bolt, it did not loosen. There are anti-balling plates attached and I did not have any issues with snow building up underfoot.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ED C  Price was right; and I didn't know what would work for my son with his sorels. These retail for $80. I bought both the Trail Crampon, and Trail Crampon Pro for $28.00 more than than just the 'Pro'. No regrets, happy with both products. They both do what Hillsound claims they do.
JERRY T  Great reviews and a great price.
THOMAS S  was looking for something in between microspikes and full crampons. These seem to fit the bill and have the front toes spikes that helped on uphill ice flows rather than walking "flat-footed" as with microspikes.
DOUGLAS P  Not into technical climbing, but I was looking for something to be more secure crossing rime crusted feldsimeer. There just seems to be more ice now than when I was into this 30 years ago (couldn't be that I'm just getting older!). I considered the Microspikes, et al., but I was worried the elastic might not be secure on steeply sloping surfaces. Haven't tried those but the solid straps of these seemed the better way to go. Wish I could buy them all and try them out!
JEFFREY G  these are fully adjustable - the large size fits both my hiking boots and sorels
Shopper  Where to find the sizing chart?
Jessica S  Please see this link: http://hillsound.com/hillsound-product/trail-crampon-pro/ for a size chart.
Ken W  What size boot does the XL size pro crampon fit?
JOHN M  Ken, I can tell you that I wear 10 1/2 boots & the ones I bought, I'm sure would accommodate at least 2 sizes larger. But I'm not sure if I bought size LG or XL. Crampons don't state size on them & I don't have box. Can tell you I love these crampons. I've used them a # of times in the Adirondacks & they worked great. Happy hiking John
THOMAS S  I wear a US size 13 or Euro size 47-47.5 They fit great and there is still a little rom to fit a boot size even larger. My guess at least a size 14 but not much bigger.
Ken D  On the Hillsound web site, they list their XL as fitting 12-15. I wear 13 1/2 med. and they fit fine. Not sure how well they would fit a wide, or a stitched sole as they are wider than the typical glued on sole. They go on easy amd work extremely well. Both my brother and I use and love them for hiking in the Winter here in Michigan. The only downside is Hillsound's customer service is really poor. Their products and prices are really good so we have put up with their poor customer service. Hope this helps.
