Since I live in the snowbelt I put my Stabilicers on and they don't come off till spring. My friends who use Yaxtrax like them but they don't last; coils break. I have Stabilicers Pro which have taken me through snow & ice. Hope you find what works!

I don't know Logould. I have yaktrax and REALLY like them. You can get those at yaktrax.com, at EMS and probably at a lot of other places. In fact I saw yaktrax at the hardware store in my town once.

Great article. Thanks for the information. We only get snow 2 or 3 times a winter usually where I live but it's been extremely cold this week with lows of 5 to 12 degrees for several days. Very unusual for us.

I have been using winter spikes by Due North which I like much better than yaktraks.

The yaktraks I've seen (with the coils) are only safe on snow, not on ice and they don't work for my minimalist shoes.
I also just bought myself some gaiters to keep my legs snow-free and I got some inexpensive snow shoes online to use when the snow is too high to run with the winter spikes. With snow shoes I'll probably get my heart rate up enough by just walking.

I have a pair of Yaktrax and they are indeed good in the snow, however, here in Montana our snow can melt and turn into crunchy piles of icy yuck! I find that other "trax" that are half coils and half spikes are incredible to keep me stable should I have to run in a mix of snow and ice! I got a pair of all spike shoe attachments that were very easy to run in, and they were easy to put on and stayed on. I can't remember why they were called but they were some sort of "ice grippers" that were orange. I love them!
