Gear: ICEtrekkers provide walking traction on ice

iceAs soon as I walked out the door this morning to the coating of ice on the driveways and sidewalks of the Treasure Valley, I knew it was time to dig out the ICEtrekkers.

The traction devices slip over your shoes and make it safer and easier to walk on everything from boilerplate ice to icy snow and gravel.

ICEtrekkers are made of case hardened steel alloy, and strung on steel aircraft cable. Patented Diamond Beads have hundreds of biting edges that grip in all directions.

They worked great on the way to get the morning Idaho Statesman.

Cost: $41.95. For information, go Here
