Gear Review: Kahtoola KTS Aluminum Crampons

Crampons that won't weigh you down

The ultralight Kahtoola KTS Aluminum Crampons fit everything from trail runners to burly boots, making them ideal for hikers who occasionally want traction for nontechnical trips across glaciers or snowfields. The 10 points provided us with sure footing in the Swiss Alps, and the adjustable straps kept them snugly in place.

For rock or steep ice, get the more durable steel model ($10 and 5 ounces more). $149; 1 lb. 3 oz.; kahtoola.com
