I got these for ski mountaineering and they do the job. They are obviously not intended for vertical ice, but I have used them a number of days on steep windblown crust surfaces, ice, and just about any other hard surface you cant sink your feet into. No issues durability wise, but this is still their first season. They are very light and I barely notice they are there. If I could do it again I would probably get a 12 point like the Sabretooth so I could do mixed and vertical.
These are the first crampons i've used and I love them. The two front toe picks stick easily to the ice and feel really secure when I'm climbing. Just be careful where you kick or you will shred your pants, but that goes with any pair of crampons
I was lucky enough to come by these guys for free, and thus haven't really used them much. But for all you tele skiers out there, I can tell you this: yes, they fit over tele boots no problem. And they make you look way more badass.
I used these on my first trip up Rainier this past August. They performed well and kept my pack light. I chose these over the CAMP equivalent due to the ease of adjusting the length, the metal strap buckle, and the included ABS plates.
