    Kako ICEtrekkers Diamond Grip Traction System is rated 4.4222 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't Slip Once This is an importan product category for me, because I carry a lot of expensive camera gear in icy spots -- I can't afford to fall and break equipment. So I did a lot of research on which product in this category to buy, and even then I was a little anxious that I'd made the wrong choice. When I first tried them, I didn't think they were doing much, until I took them off and found that the trail ice I was on was downright unnavigable with just trail boots. But with these back on, I couldn't slip even when I tried. I ended up using them all winter, including on a weeklong winter shoot in Acadia National Park. I never once had trouble with them. In fact, these probably represent the best winter-outdoor-gear buying decision I've ever made. They just work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we finally got them. From snow shoveling to walking a trail, this is a wonderful product, really feels stable, even on hard ice, with snow over it. Other people were slipping and sliding, we walked normally, even on the icy inclines. I wear a Keen boot, size 10.5 mens, and the large ICEtrekkers are a bit large, they come right to the edge of the front and rear of the soles of the boots. If you are on a flat surface there may be less contact area of the diamonds. I also tried my wifes medium ICEtrekkers on my mens 10.5 boots, it seems the diamonds are in a better place, but the rubber is stretched pretty tight. My wife wears a Keen boot, size 9 womens, and she uses the ICEtrekkers in medium, and they fit perfectly, just as the product picture shows. They are fairly easy to put on, but take care putting them on, so as to get them centered, and properly aligned, I feel this is important. Overall, we are so glad we got them, they are a good product that works well. Please see the pictures we posted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mtn hiking, trail runs,icy concrete runs I use these to run mountain trails, icy sidewalks, or climb rocky, icy, mountains in Colorado. I have slipped once- when I stepped on shattered ice and the ice slipped with me on top of it. I have had these 2-3 years and they have seen serious snow, ice, rock, and concrete use without issue. One caveat- if you have aggressive tread boots, you must pay attention when putting these on. They are narrow enough they can slip into length-wise tread grooves and you will lose the advantage of them- as in you will slip like you don't have them on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusted through after 2 months I bought these for my kid brother who walks to and from school and had fallen a couple times on the icy street. They were very hard for him to get on and off, so he got a second pair of shoes to swap out once he got to school. They served their purpose for less than 3 months. They started rusting within a month of having them and today they finally broke entirely. For the price, I would have expected them to last at least one full winter. He used them from about December 6th to February 21st. I think the next set will be a different brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! These things are awesome!! Used them for a few days in Rocky Mountain National Park on some icy/snow packed trails. They work great. Very stable and versatile. They are very easy to put on and take off and I like that you don't have to take them off if you're on a part of a trail that doesn't have any ice or snow. They are also very storable so its not a big deal to keep them in your pack just incase you may want them. I only used them for a few days but those were a few 10+ mile days and they held up fine and don't looked stressed at all. There were a couple times when snow built up in between the chains on the heel but I just kicked a rock a couple times and the snow fell out easily. Get em'....you'll be glad you did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traction! Great set of microspikes! I was looking at another set in the store, but the sales rep pointed me toward these. He said they would perform just as well while leaving more of the boot sole exposed for grip on sections of hiking across rocks or melted portions of trail... and he was right! They had fantastic grip on the hard packed, icy snow, and didn't require me to remove them for short stretches of rock. The diamond pattern of the spikes ensures they're going to bite in the ice, and don't feel awkward on your feet at all. Easy to put on and remove, they fit my boots as I hoped they would, snug without any shifting. Great buy for their price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome purchase Tried these out near Donner Pass where most of the snow had melted to icy stretches. They performed wonderfully and made hiking over the ice effortless. Very well worth the $$. The only times they slipped were on granite, loose rock and the tile in my bathroom. (Nearly broke my neck before hitting the trail) They will be on my short list of things-to-bring for spring and fall hiking from now on. Recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Great snow grippers After going snowshoeing my girlfriend and I really wanted to try some combed path snow hiking. After doing some research online I decided that these Kako ICEtrekkers were worth a try. The price was reasonable and they looked like a perfect fit for the type of hiking we were planning. We could not be more pleased. They give great traction in packed snow and reasonable grip on ice. An added benefit is that you don't have to remove them on pavement or concrete. You can even wear them to a formal dinner------if its out in the sticks next to a big campfire:). Buy them if your use matches ours, you'll like them.
