The Hillsounds microspikes are called Hillsound Trail Crampons, and are more secure, durable and have more aggressive grip on ice than the Kahtoola Microspikes. The Hillsound Trail Crampons also have a handy velcro strap to help keep them in place over your hiking boot. Also the Hillsound Trail Crampons spikes are solid pieces connected steel in the heel/ toe sections, which are hinged. Kahtoola Microspikes have only chains which attach the spikes together underneath the foot.Essentially, microspikes are great for hiking across mixed hard pack snow and ground. Walking on full on ice can be a bit tricky with microspikes. Microspikes do not work well for climbing up steeper terrain or on very hard ice.On the otherhand, walking on dry ground with crampons does not work very well.
