Fritschi Vipec Traxion Crampon is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim from Critical spring ski gear. Ski crampons are one of those tools that are pretty much irreplaceable. The quick attachment triggers are easy enough to use with gloves though I've had issues with snow buildup in the binding receiver holes. The flip up boot riser tab works well enough to force the crampon down on steep terrain, but a few more millimeters of depth in the high riser position would be nice. I wish they came with a small Velcro pouch that could be turned into a quickdraw crampon holster for the waist belt of my pack.
