MICROspikes Pocket Traction

In stock
Winner of Backpacker Magazine’s 2018 Hall of Fame Award and 2012 Editors’ Choice Gold Award, MICROspikes® footwear traction is the benchmark for stretch-on winter traction when hiking on frozen winter trails.

Designed to make winter more accessible and provide confident performance for safe outdoor adventures, 12 stainless steel spikes dig into ice and packed snow. A TPE elastomer band remains stretchy down to -30°F. And reinforced TPU eyelets prevent tearing at connection points and allow the elastomer band to be lighter and stronger, while an integrated TPU toe bail keeps the toe from pushing through the front of the elastomer harness. Between outings, easily pack MICROspikes® footwear traction away in the included tote sack.


  • Spike Design: Twelve spikes per foot, each made from heat-treated stainless steel, are durable and corrosion resistant. Chain and link components are designed to move independently and prevent snow buildup.
  • Stainless Steel Chains: Welded stainless steel chains ensure reliable performance, durability, and provide additional traction.
  • Reinforced Eyelets: Reinforced using durable TPU inserts, the patented eyelet design prevents tearing at each connection point, allowing the elastomer band to be lighter and stronger.
  • Integrated Toe Bail: Using the same technology and durable TPU as the reinforced eyelets, an integrated toe bail provides added security and prevents the toe from pushing through the front of the elastomer harness.
  • Raised Heal Tab: Allows for easy pull-back and removal.
  • Elastomer Harness: Low profile and ergonomically shaped, the elastomer bands are constructed from a durable TPE for a secure fit that remains stretchy in cold temperatures, down to -30°F.
