- SKEATS™ Claws Field Report -
Like many people, I'm not very good at walking in splits, but with the SKEATS™ Claws I was able to increase my range of motion and felt like I was much better at walking.

The mountains I often visit are Mt. Furano and Mt. Tokachi. There are many places where you can't ski unless you walk on hard ice. If you attach SKEATS™ Claws , your traverse and direct climbing ability will be greatly improved, so you won't have to change to boots and crampons as often, which will help you conserve your stamina. Moreover, since it is small and thin, it can easily fit into small gaps, so I feel like I have become better at storing

It's a really good product and I recommend it to many people.
