      Best Ever

      I went through about 4 pairs of crampons last winter before I found these. No salt on the winter roads in our area means lots of ice. These let me walk the dog naturally, at a pace, and I am on my second season now. Best crampons I have found. Thank you.

      Great on ice

      The climate has changed, we have freezing rain more than snow now. I use these daily hiking my Huskies and they work great. I had one pair for 3 years before the metal broke, and one pair not as long but the second pair was replaced under warranty.

      Hard stretching !

      Depuis plusieurs années j'utilise vos crampons. J'en suis à ma troisième paire (FREESTEPS6® CRAMPON). Je viens tout juste d'en acheter une nouvelle paire et je constate qu'ils sont très difficile à étirer (peu importe la pointure). Avez-vous changer la sorte de caoutchouc? Il me semble que la partie caoutchoutée est toujours de même grandeur peu importe la pointure. J'ai fait trois magasins et le problème demeure le même.
      For several years I use your crampons. I'm in my third pair (FREESTEPS6® CRAMPON). I have just bought a new pair and I find that they are very difficult to stretch (no matter the size). Did you change the kind of rubber? It seems to me that the rubberized part is always of the same size no matter the size. I made three stores and the problem remains the same.

      Soft metal wears quickly!

      I bought these about 6 months ago for Fly fishing in Utah during the winter. I went about 7 times over the 2017-2018 season and the metal connections are worn where the boot meets metal and they've broken in one spot near the toe. I really wished these would last longer.

      Best Ice Grippers Ever

      If you need to walk on ice, buy these. I live in Newfoundland, where ice coats sidewalks and trails for a good part of every winter and I've gone through many different kinds of ice grippers over the years. These are the best, hands down. They are light weight, easy to get off and on, sturdy, comfortable and they provide perfect traction on icy surfaces. I can walk where others tiptoe and go out for my daily hike when my friends stay home because they are afraid they will fall. I showed them to a friend and she said, "these will be life changing."
      In this climate, they are.
