As a ski tourist living in Southern Idaho I would NEVER leave my ski crampons at home.
Have plenty of time left my pals in the dust cursing when the skin track gets icy or conditions less than perfect. Heck, go to the Tetons and some of those tracks are so packed and steep it's like blue ice (I jest).
I don't hesitate to bust these out and forget about all the back sliding.
Fit great, connect easily ... simple.
