I had a pair of these (I still do have them actually) They work quite well at first. But as your boot gets older and the front rand wares, these crampons tend to come off easily.While this is not the fault of the crampon, it is a problem just the same. Even though I have new boots now, I’m gunshy and won’t use them again.

I have a pair of these as well, and don't have any specific compaints. They're a pretty good all around pair of crampons. They're pretty good for technical alpine climbing, the shorter front points can be a bit easier on the calfs when you're headed up hard stuff, but I never noticed any difficiency on softer snow.



They're good, but nothing to rave about.
