    After too many slips, slides and near-falls while fly fishing the Skeena's famously slick, cobbled runs, we came home determined to find a better traction solution. Drawing on his mountaineering experience, Yvon Chouinard disappeared into the Tin Shed and went to work. The result? Our River Crampons, the highest-traction wading device ever built. The secret is the widely spaced aluminum-bar treads, which are hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to grip the rock itself. This season, we've made the River Crampons significantly lighter and more flexible by mounting the bars to a fully adjustable, recycled plastic frame, which is held in place with an easy-on, easy-off harness system. The new Ultralight River Crampon fits over any wading boot and comes in two sizes: S/M for size 6 through 10 boots, and L/XL for 10 through 14. Simple, easily cleaned design and fast-drying materials help stop invasive species transport. U.S. patent pending.

    Features:

    • Recycled plastic frame is more flexible and lighter in weight
    • Hard biting aluminum bars perform outstandingly well in virtually all challenging wading conditions; this season we made them lighter and twice as flexible
    • Adjustable length adapts to any wading boot without tools
    • Adjustable harness system allows the crampon to be removed easily for extended hiking
    • Recycled plastic with riveted aluminum bars, with corrosion-resistant, fiberglass impregnated neoprene harness system

    Cons-little bit heavy with heavy boots, noisy in the water with so much metal. Pros- GRIP better than felt or felt with studs,convenient , use when needed packs small.
