Heading out into the unknown is not what you what to do so we all plan routes to fix the problem, the same thing needs to happen with equipment.
Winter mountaineering is safe if you plan, judge and fit the problems ahead.
A lot of people but kit and take the labels off and head out to walk, please take a moment to read the information and try the kit out, Crampons are easily mistaken and some people just put them into their bags, take some time fixing them on and off. This saves time and that time maybe needed to help someone else.
Don’t buy if your not going to try!
Enjoy winter, enjoy outdoors.
