gear_yaktraxsummitWhen your feet are pining to hit the trails, this time of year can create a bit of dilemma. Warmer temperatures have brought a cure to “cabin fever” and melted lower-elevation trails, but the upper elevations and shaded areas of your favorite hiking trails might still be hibernating under layers of ice.

The perfect solution to complement your trusty hiking shoes has been created: Summit by YakTrax. These “Eye of the Tiger”- worthy bad boys will get you through even the sketchiest frozen terrain. With triangular spiked grips and an easy on-and-off patented closure system, the Summit grippers will make you the envy of those left in the dust … ahem, ice. -Alexis Deaton
