Kahtoola, the brand behind the popular MICROspikes, sent me a tee and some stickers. Thanks guys! MICROspikes were designed by Kahtoola as portable ice traction gear. Think lightweight and easy to put-on crampons. Considering these were made for icy terrain, why would I even mention this product on Exploration: Hawaii. Hawaii isn’t really known for snow, sure, but local hikers have adopted the use of MICROspikes when hiking the muddy terrain of the Koolau Mountain Range and other trails throughout Hawaii.
