I just got a pair, and they're great, but for one thing; one of the eyelets on the front of one tore after less than 12 miles of hiking.
Kahtoola is replacing them at no cost to me as per their 1 year warranty(though it's unclear if they'll reimburse me for my shipping costs).
I've read nothing but great reviews about them, and before they broke, I'd already mentally placed them in my Top 10 favorite pieces of gear.
I was hiking pretty rugged terrain, but that's what they're for, right? I wouldn't need 3.4" steel spikes if the terrain was easy.
I'm not mad, I just assume at this point I got a defective set. But has anybody else had this happen?
