We're lucky here in the Willamette Valley in that we don't get really bad snowy weather, but when a cold front roars into the Pacific Northwest it can get ugly fast. Those of us that get that Columbia gorge influenced icy blast know all about freezing rain and all the issues that can cause. Personally I like the liquid stuff much better. When the ground is covered in a sheet of ice, it's dangerous just walking out to the mail box. You need some traction. Wearing your studded wading boots isn't a bad idea, but they do clash with your pajamas. Solve that problem and outfit your footwear with a set of Korkers Ultra Ice Cleats.
Boasting a proprietary adjustable one size fits all technology, Ultra Ice Cleats provide the ultimate customized fit whether you use a trail shoe or boot.
