    Not durable

    I have used these for one weekend on winter mountaineering and by looking at the them you would think they had a lifetime of usage. The points are worn and the plastic straps flimsy. Would not recommend.

    Great kit for great value

    Very impressed with the crampons, which I bought to lend to clients. They are great value, and seem very high quality.
