Kahtoola Microspikes come from the US, where they get a lot more snow and ice than we do. It's probably for that reason they are so well designed. Made of one piece, they are designed as a stuff in a bag crampon that you can leave in your glove box or pop in your rucksack. Use them for getting down an icy street to running off the hill when you come across some ice on your trail run, simply step in and your off.
