- I bought these Yaktraks for a trip to Northern Norway in the middle of March. They fitted my walking boots perfectly though I had to make sure that the 'outer' rubber came up and around the edge of my boots so that there was no chance of losing the Yaktrak (why? See bad points). Apart from the iciest of surfaces, where I simply navigated a different line, they were tremendous as I do not like walking on ice due to a problem with my balance.
- I also bough a pair for my mother at the same time. Her boots are size 7 and having checked the packaging with a member of staff I purchased two medium sized Yaktraks. While mine was a 'perfect' snug fir around my boots, this was not the case for my mother's pair. She lost one Yaktrak whilst on an excursion in Kirkenes which limited her enjoyment of the excursion.
