Who Can Benefit from the Yaktrax Chains?

If you often work in snowy outdoor conditions, or simply enjoy a refreshing winter hike the Yaktrax Chains are the product for you. Due to their hardened steel chain links, they offer exceptional grip and durability, helping to significantly reduce the risk of falls.

Are the Ice Grips Easy to Walk With?

Despite being incredibly durable, the Yaktrax Chains are lightweight and minimalistic, so won't impede your movement in any way and can even fit easily into a backpack. Depending on the size you choose, they will only weight between 227.8 - 311.8g (8 - 11 oz).

How Do I Put the Yaktrax Chains On?

To put the Yaktrax on, all you'll need is a place to sit and a few quick moments. With one foot over the other, pull the Yaktrax Chains on starting from your toes, and pulling them back over your heels. Once they've been applied to both feet, you'll be set to go!

Is There Anything I Should Check Before Using Yaktrax?

Before going anywhere with your Yaktrax, it's important to double check they've been applied correctly. Please check that:

  1. The word 'heel' or 'toe' on your Yaktrax cannot be read on the heel or toe of your shoe (this means they are inside out).
  2. The coils are sitting flat against the sole of your shoe and are not sticking out past its edge.
  3. The outer band consistently grips the outer edge of your footprint, all the way around your shoe (this should not touch the sole).
  4. There is a circular knob visible on the webbing of your Yaktrax covering your sole.

Which Size Is Right for Me?

The Yaktrax Chains are available in four different sizes. To find the perfect fit for your shoes, measure the circumference of your shoes' footprints. Shoe sizing can also give you an indication as to which Yaktrax size will suit you best, but always take circumference into consideration first as the walking aids will fit on your shoes' exteriors.
