Took these into the backcountry of the smoky mountains on Le Conte. Unfortunately, the crampons bent when I stepped on rocks. Additionally, the Anti-balling device popped off. I would only recommend these as a flat terrain, perfect powder pair. Step up to the 10 or 12 series versions. The craftsmanship is far superior to the 8 series.

I would suggest to only use these on FLAT land. The bindings twist making it very difficult to traverse any kind of slope. Steer clear of these if you have aspirations of mountain travel!

I bought a pair of these last year and used them once, then returned them, they sucked. The bindings twisted so much that the deck was at a 25 degree angle to the bindings and the crampons bent as soon as I started walking on ice. For the price, I expected much better quality.
