    Hiking Confidence

    I carry & use these crampons while snowshoeing because trail conditions often require a variety of foot wear traction devices during ascents & descents. Always dry them properly & thoroughly as they are stainless, not stain proof. The chromium oxide rust preventive property of stainless steel is susceptible to high salinity & long term exposure to high humidity; it's the same reason that stainless steel cutlery can rust.

    Not happy with the rust

    I purchased the Trail Crampon Hiking Cleats at the end of November 2020, and by the 4th use, there was already rust on the spikes! The product itself, other than the rust, is a good reliable product, however the rust is not very nice looking. I wrote to Sail who contacted your company and their response was "I've forwarded your warranty request to Hillsound. Unfortunately, they replied back saying that their warranty covers damage due to poor workmanship and/or defective materials. This does not include oxidation." Very disappointed that neither your company nor Sail honoured the warranty. I have friends who have a different name brand for 6 years now and not one spot of rust on them, just like brand new. I won't be recommending these to any of my friends, sorry.

    Best gift I have ever received

    I like to walk a lot in the country but New Brunswick winters can be very UN-user friendly, so much ice. I usually do not spend much time outside in the winter because of this. I received these crampons this year as a gift and they have quickly become my most prized possession. I can march along at my summer speed and have already walked hundreds of km with no slips, slides or falls. They are comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Having gone through 3 or 4 different brands, with no success at all, I can confidently say that I will never be without Hillsound crampons again. Thanks for making winters enjoyable again! I am already making a list of who I can gift these to to pass on the favor.

    Awesome crampons

    Took them out for 11 miles on an icy path and never slipped once. Some steep slopes were glare slippery ice and never had a problem. They come with a bag as well. Highly recommend.
