    Kahtoola KTS Crampon

    ICEGRIPPER were easy to order from and provided good service and communications. The KTS Crampons look excellent and fit of purpose. They are lightweight and pack down well - perfect for my needs (Lightweight winter mountain running / mountaineering that goes beyond the capabilities of micro spikes). They have been recommend by many for this purpose. However, I have yet to try them out. Counting down the months until winter..

    Thanks for the positive feedback on our service Scott KTS Crampons are a great product and will serve you well once the snow and ice kick in...
