No More Winter No More Ice

It was a bit unusual in Maine this past winter.  We had plenty of snow, and at times too much.  So much that ice fishing derbies were cancelled.  Not much ice most of the winter, since the snow never melted off and re-froze.  That’s great in a way, but not so great when it comes to reviewing ice gear.  I had the opportunity to review the Hillsound Trail Crampon Pros, and found lack of ice made that difficult.  Check out what I found so far HERE.

Maine in the winter is cold, snowy and long.  Sometimes getting outdoors isn’t very easy to do.  I enjoy snowshoeing, and don’t mind the snow.  I’m not crazy about bitter cold and ice though.  Hillsound may have provided some relief from the ice – now if they could do something about the cold.   The Trail Crampon Pro’s offer some very aggressive ice crampons that make being outdoors less slippery and much more enjoyable.  Follow along for my initial thoughts, and then check back next month for a follow up.  Click Here to read on.
