4.0 out of 5 stars
Works well but.............., 22 Feb 2012
I bought 3 different sized sets of these for dogwalking etc for myself, my partner and my elderly neighbour. I checked the sizing very carefully before I ordered as we all have different sized feet.
In use they definitely do the trick-not a single slip, even when walking on thick ice and compacted snow with a layer of ice on top. Could walk with confidence on all surfaces.
The only snag is they are really hard to get on. My neighbour (admittedly he is in his early 70's) couldnt get them on at all, I had to put them on for him but they werent easy for me either.
Once on though they are very secure and I am totally confident that they wouldnt come off.
My partner has a pair of the more commonly seen studded types which are supplied by work. These go on far easier than the Yak Trax but then he says that they dont stay on very well. Also he finds that the studs also pull out or break.
The Yak Trax are certainly the superior item if you can get them on your boots in the first place!
