ICE Trekkers Diamond Grip

I fell 4 times on the Legault Mountain Trail but I haven’t fallen since I bought the ICE Trekkers Diamond Grips.

Snowpacked Trail

The ICETrekkers have been a life saver and I now enjoy hiking so much more, especially on snow, ice and mud.

Take a look at the ICETrekker features.

Personal Experience with ICETrekkers

Let’s get right to the bottom line. The ICETrekkers are extremely easy to use and I have not fallen once on a trail since I have started using them.

ICE Trekkers Diamond Grip

All four of my last hikes in November and December have been on snow packed, icy and/or muddy trails but these ICETrekkers have made my life much easier on the trail and it’s nice having the confidence that these grips give me.

I recently hiked the Chief Mountain Trail near Idaho Springs, Colorado. It was snow packed from the trailhead to the Chief Mountain peak. I thought I might not need the ICETrekkers, since I also have the Leki Micro Vario Carbon AS Trekking Poles, but it only took me about 50 feet on the trail before I stopped and strapped on my ICETrekkers.

My daughter thinks she is tough enough and doesn’t need them but my son tried his on and really liked having the extra grip they provide. He still doesn’t have any trekking poles but at least he has better grips on his boots.

Check out my Leki Trekking Poles if you would like to learn more about them.

ICETrekkers Diamond Grip Traction Cleats (1 Pair), Medium (Men's 6.5-9/Women's 7.5-10), Black
  • Shoe grips designed to provide aggressive traction in winter walking conditions
  • Made of case-hardened steel alloy and strung on steel aircraft cable
  • Riveted to tough rubber sling that fits tennis shoes, boots and dress shoes
  • Sling remains elastic even in subzero temperatures to keep grips secure
  • Self-clearing design prevents snow and ice buildup

I found that the ICETrekkers were extremely easy to pull on and take off quickly. I never had to sit down or fight with them. I was able to pull them on my boot with only one hand.

I noticed the more experienced hikers on the trail all had ICETrekkers on or some other version of them. It really does make hiking more enjoyable and safer.

The Bottom Line

You don’t need ICETrekkers on every trail but strap them to your pack, as my son and I have done, so you will always have them when you need them.

Hiking is a lot more fun when you have confidence in every step you take. It’s also a lot safer and will help keep you out of the emergency room.

  1. Glad to hear of your personal success using ICE Trekkers Diamond Grips. Falling on ice and snow can be one of the most frustrating experiences. More than that, it can even be dangerous. Having the right equipment becomes paramount. With the ICE Trekkers Diamond Grips I really like how they transition well between terrains and that they have so many biting edges. Also, that they are easy to put on and take off is an added bonus. I know a few adventurers and I think this would make for a perfect gift, so I’ll save your link for when it’s soon time to order. Thanks for an excellent recommendation!

    • You are very welcome. It’s easy to recommend something that has kept me from hurting myself in the last month. I am still having trouble convincing my daughter to use them but she does keep them with her pack and I’m sure she will decide to try them out some day.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
