These are great crampons, purchased them for backcountry snowboarding and they fit perfect over my snowboard boots and never slipped or moved, while my partners whose crampons I wont name were all over the place. Super durable and I was able to traverse over scree with ease.
My only complaint is the inward curve of the center bar it seems unnecessary and ripped my pants multiple times this didn't keep me from giving them five stars because my pants were super baggy and I am still learning how to walk in crampons. I have purchased some Mountain Hardwear Bokta pants which are incredible by the way and are more of an alpine fit and never even came close to ripping them. The curve just seems like a unnecessary design choice.
These crampons are great..Easy to put on, easy to take off, and do what they are supposed to...Hold you on the ice.. I have made two approaches in these over 5000 ft gain in various ice conditions, in some very unusually mild temps. they hold up to everything..
I have a size 11 boot, and the standard size is almost maxed, so if you have larger boots/feet. Plan on getting the extension bars.
I have fit these to just about every kind of boot you can imagine: AT boots, XC boots, Mountaineering boots, Duck boots, and they have a perfect fit every time. The only downside is the 10 miles of extra strap that comes on these, but that can be very handy to wrap the two together so I can overlook that.
Not the most tecnical "pon but they fit well on all my boots
really like these for general snow walking, I just got back from a trip up timpanogus, and they worked awesome.plus they fit awesome on all these boots

I bought these for my brother in law who does a lot of early summer hiking. He wears them with a pair of waterproof merrells and loves them. He said they work great on different surfaces of snow from slushy to hard pack. Easy to attach and stay on very well.
Easy on, easy off for quick transition. Light, didn't even feel like I had much on my feet.
I'm a bit of a beginner, but these were recommended. So far, have been used for mountaineering in the Uintas in Utah. Worn with size 6 La Sportiva Trango Women's Mountaineering Boots.
Bought these guys for the Haute route after hearing they fit on snowboard boots. They almost fit on snowboard boots, but not larger sizes. They are great in other instances, but not for my particular use, if you're looking for a snowboard boot crampoon go for a Grivel.
I've used these on several snow climbs up to 60 degrees in colorado. These are excellent! Super durable when walking over rock, stick very well into hard snow, and are easy to adjust and stay tight! I would definitely recommend these to anyone!
My son really likes his.
I used these with Burton snowboard boots and could not trust them to stay on. The top strap would slowly edge around the tip of the boot and eventually come off - usually at very bad times. I just got new boots so we'll see if that helps.
