Go faster and farther over icy terrain with the V3 Pocket Cleats. At less than half the weight of similar trail traction devices, the V3 Pocket Cleats are incredibly strong yet compact enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
We set out to create the lightest, most compact trail traction device available...and this is the result. The V3 Pocket Cleats™ weigh a fraction of the weight of other traction devices yet are incredibly strong, durable, and compact. Their unisex one-size-fits-all design adjusts perfectly to all sizes of trail running and lightweight hiking shoes and securely stay put by tieing into your shoes' lacing system. Whether you're pounding out a snowy trail run or blazing through a winter hike, you'll be pleasantly surpised by their lightness and effectiveness. In fact, you may even forget you're wearing them, but you forget to bring them everytime Old Man Winter decides to join you.
Vargo's V3 Pocket Cleats are around less than half the weight of similar trail traction devices and are incredibly strong yet compact enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Their unisex one-size-fits-all sizing is designed to adjusts to all sizes of trail running and lightweight hiking shoes. This is good news for those with larger size feet as you won't have to carry any extra weight.
They are available in two materials; titanium or stainless steel. Titanium is designed to be just as strong as steel but around 45% lighter. Of course this means it's the more expensive option of the two. If your looking for something a little cheaper then the stainless steel option would be better suited as they cost less and should last longer as stainless steel tends to take longer to deform over years of use. Obviously the Pocket Cleats are not substitutes for crampons and are not appropriate for mountaineering.
