We recently received a package that contained these ominous looking devices. The first look in the box made us question weather our safe word could be remembered easily enough. However, digging deeper into the package revealed an item that would certainly come in handy during the winter. We also couldn't help but wonder how a set up like these might compare to sticky rubber wading boots with studs for fishing on slippery rocks etc. We intend to test them for both purposes, but can't help but hope the snow holds off for a few more weeks.
