    REI Members get back an estimated $ 3.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Regain your confidence when walking on packed snow and ice with the updated, simple-to-use Yaktrax Pro traction devices.

    • For walkers, runners, hikers and other winter athletes, these strap easily to the bottom of your shoes, reducing the chance of falls
    • Abrasion-resistant, hand-wound stainless-steel coils cover the bottom of your shoes to bite into packed snow and ice; increased spacing between coils prevents binding
    • Yaktrax Pros offer ten times the gripping points as any spike-based traction device
    • Natural rubber is used to hold the devices together, giving them durability and strength
    • Removable performance straps cross over insteps to help keep them in place during use
    • Updated heel tabs and strands, outer bands and toe bridges work to provide a comfortable, secure fit; impact nubs improve durability in high-wear areas
    • Easy to use, even in extreme cold—just hook over your shoe's toe and stretch over the sole

    Not for ski boots or mountaineering use.

    • Small fits men's shoe size 5-8.5 / women's shoe size 6.5-10

    Yaktrax Pro is rated 3.0714 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from For light use only These are the first set of chains I've owned. They work OK for light ice and hard pack snow trails that are completely covered but I wouldn't use them on concrete or places with exposed rock or gravel. The rubber bands under the feet holding the springs are thin and could break easily, the springs on my did snap in half and I lost one piece. They also slide backwards on inclined slopes. Not that easy to put on either. I also have the kind of chains with "diamond grips". These work much better and have metal chain instead of rubber bands and I have no qualms about walking on concrete or rock spewn icy paths. The diamond kind are also just as easy to put on as these. If you have these on some spare shoes for walking to the mailbox or emergency use in the car they are OK but for hiking on snow and ice covered paths I'd get the diamond grip kind for about 11 bucks more, you will be glad you did.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good while they last I bought the YakTracx Pros several years ago before a winter photo trip to Yellowstone but didn't need them at the time. This past winter I used them for another photo trip which required hiking for about an hour and then standing around for several hours on packed snow. I did this for two days and at the end of the second day discovered that one of the rubber "bands" inside the steel coils had broken. The Yaktrax worked well on the packed snow providing good traction without making the hiking difficult. But I was disappointed that they didn't last very long under what I considered to be relatively mild use. I need to find something else before my next winter photo trip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product, Great Service My wife and I both purchased yaktrax for use in ice/packed snow. The product performed as described and provided plenty of additional traction.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only for casual use I was recommended the Yaktrax Pro buy sales associates at 2 different REI's, so I decided to try them out. I'm just glad REI will take them back if you aren't satisfied. I only used them once. The stitching for the strap came loose. Both traction soles, even the one that didn't break, slide back providing only traction on the heel. I'm disappointed the REI sales associates recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonably Priced Peace of Mind These work best on snow, slushy snow, and rough ice. They're not too great on glare ice, but combined with walking slowly and carefully, they're still much better than nothing. As others have pointed out, Yaktrax don't last forever, but the price - even if they only last one winter - is still cheaper than a broken bone or a concussion. Note that while I ranked them at 4 stars (since we can only pick whole stars) I'd actually put them closer to 3.5 stars. But I'd still recommend them to others (and I have).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver These yak tracks were a lifesaver on a recent trip up beyond the snow level. I gave it a go with just my boots, but kept slipping and sliding which made it 100 times harder. Took a minute to slip these on even with my heavy back pack on and I was on my way. Very little slipping with them on. Made the going much easier and much less effort. This was on packed snow and ice mind you. If it were powder snow shoes would have been a better idea.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from They break They grip well on most surfaces but will snap (two pairs now) if you catch them on a rock. The issue is the rubber which goes around the boot and under the sole. At the edge of the sole the rubber will break if you catch a rock.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great investment I bought these so I could run outside in the winter without fear of falling. I was a bit leary the first time I used them thinking they would hinder my step or feel akward on my foot. I didn't experience any problems and really didn't feel any difference in my step. I recommend them if you run outside in snow and ice.
