Good find and price, heat added.

In town this morning I see some fella wearing these, or similar, looked good on him as he confidently walked across the icy pathways as the rest of us struggled, he then walked in to Argos with the same strutt. ooops the hard smooth surface made him slide and skip on to his backside. A few of us couldn't help but snigger.

These are utterly useless, walk the shortest distance in a few inches of snow and they fall off. The worst thing is it'll probably be too late before you even realise they have fallen off and you'll have lost them.

You would be much better off with yaktrax, these stretch to fit over the whole of your foot and don't fall off and you can't even tell you have them on!

Just put an old pair of socks over your shoes. Same effect only a tad cheaper

Or use your astro turf trainers

Nice pun ;)
#15
Looked at these, saw the poor reviews so steered clear. Then looked at the well reviewed "Get a Grip" traction aids. Nice, but expensive and pricey shipping.

Went instead for an £8 pair of crampons from the eBay seller that amber mentions. 1884, 100% positive feedback for just selling an £8 crampon has to be good...

So I've ordered a set :)
#16
I imagine these are about as usefull as those snow tyre sleeves that are posted evey winter on this site.......come to think of it havent seen anyone post them this year !! oO

You lot saying the snow will be over... what? Seriously, no one told me it was never going to snow again. You saying we won't get snow in the months we usually get it? Agree though that it looks like you get what you pay for.

I used the same sets this guy sells while in Sweden & Norway - 100% perfect every time ;)

Rubbish things. Fall off and hurt your foot. Yaktrax are a much more effective (if admittedly dearer) option.
#20
from a prev deal, there were a lot of comments about the fact that these become quite painfull to walk in after a short while. i went for the swedish ones of ebay, as for an extra quid or two, they do seem better.
(they are also spiked, as well, which these are not.)

It's ironic that he sells "Swedish" gear but the caveat is he won't ship to Sweden (or Austria) :P

I'd highly reccomend getting Yaktrax rather than these.
#23
I also went for a pair of those Get-a-grip "Go North" crampons.

Snow socks for your car do actually work. Theyre just right for getting you out of a fix in the trivial quantities of snow we get.

I was wondering what these things are, you find the randomly in the snow.

The global warming cult did indeed tell us snow was a thing of the past, maybe you missed the memo:

There's nothing in climate science that says snow was a thing of the past. Quoting from news media usually isn't a very accurate thing to do. They're there to sell stories, not science.

With the Yaktrax, don't you have to continually remove them and reapply them when you want to go inside (i.e. into a shop) or if the gound is slushy?

What put me off getting YakTrax is that they are supposedly hard to put on and remove (possibly a good thing depending on your point of view) and they are contraindicated (aka. double edged sword) when walking on smooth surfaces.

There's nothing in climate science that says snow was a thing of the past. Quoting from news media usually isn't a very accurate thing to do. They're there to sell stories, not science.


According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event". "Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.


David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes - or eventually "feel" virtual cold.


It's not the media saying whats going to happen, they are just repeating what the scientists have told them, quoted above!

You get used to how to put them on until it quickly becomes a swift procedure. Won't pretend it's like putting on a slipper but it's no more difficult than putting on any other grip attachment.

As for not using them on smooth indoor surfaces, if you use any grip attachment on such floors, you're risking landing on your backside.

As someone who walks anywhere and everywhere daily, I've tried all kinds of these things. The Yaktrax are by a long, long way the most superior product.

@Pokey: How compact/cleanly do they pack away? Is it possible to store them in a jacket pocket (in a plastic bag) when not in use?

@pimpMe: And Bill Gates said 640kb would be enough for anyone. Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM said that there was a worldwide market for only "five computers". And there are more - the Beatles were never thought to succeed as nobody wanted to listen to a "guitar band", the heart, lungs, liver were considered to be "forever beyond the realm of surgery" and so on...

I even remember a Tomorrow's World episode that predicted by the year 2000 we would all be washing down our homes with hoses, since everything would be waterproof.

To suggest that you can take a quote from someone and that this outweighs overwhelming quantities of scientific data is absurd.

Stick to the scientific journals and the facts - the globe is warming, the ice caps are melting and we don't know if it is caused by us or not. But if it is, we should do something about it. And changing to energy efficient lighting isn't going to help - securing long term clean energy production for the entire world is.

What are you talking about, I simply pointed out that it IS the scientists who produced the data that are quoted in the Independent's report.

It was the scientists who said that snow is a thing of the past, not the Independent [or me]....

Anyway no point in derailing this threa with idle chatter, people quickly get bored of it!

They're made of a very robust rubber and are actually very stretchy and flexible. They naturally fold in half when off and easily fit in the pocket of any outerwear you'd be wearing in such weather.
#36
@Pokey: I think I'll look for a good deal on a set and try them for myself. Thanks for your advice :)

@pimpMe: I agree, let's not derail. As you asked, I was just saying that it was just a few researchers saying some things that they probably shouldn't have, and I gave other examples of where "experts" in certain fields made "predictions" that turn out to be laughably wrong. It doesn't mean the whole field of climate science (or any other field) can be simply ignored because of a few silly comments by some working within it.
