It’s winter… which means it’s time to break out the traction for our snowy and icy trails. When it comes to winter hiking, there is one product we stand behind here at @womenwhohike, and that’s MICROspikes from Kahtoola.
I’ve had my same pair since 2014 and can’t say enough good things about them. They’re easy to use, easy to take on and off, and I like to think of them as an extra ‘insurance policy’ when hiking the snowy— and sometimes icy— winter trails. I’ve also taken several people on their first winter hike while wearing MICROspikes from Kahtoola, and we all agree— they’re a game changer!
MICROspikes from Kahtoola provide peace of mind for us on the trails whether it means we’re hiking solo or leading a group hike. Winter hiking isn’t for everyone, but we have found that with the right gear, winter hiking becomes more accessible and a lot of fun for everyone! We say don’t let a change in the seasons keep you from the trails.
MICROspikes from Kahtoola are made of stainless steel. They deliver unrivaled traction for winter hiking and snow laden trails. Each foot gets 12 strategically placed spikes and flex-chain for optimal traction, grip, and movement. They’re also lightweight, just 11 ounces. But still durable! They’re also easy to put on and easy to take off, while on the go!
Kahtoola also stands by its product. They offer a 2-year warranty on their MICROspikes and will often times extend whatever needs you have past that. We also love that before replacement, they offer repair. There’s no need for product to end up in landfills! We believe that when it comes to winter hiking and getting out there, MICROspikes from Kahtoola are a one and done product.
