Having a good pair of cleats is essential for hiking, especially during the winter months. But, having a pair that folds up and fits into your pocket, like the Vargo Titanium Pocket Cleats, is even better.
These cleats fold down neatly to easily fit into backpacks or coat pockets, and come with a nylon carrying case so that they won’t rip anything. They will help improve speed and traction during winter runs, providing traction by clawing into the snow or ice. These cleats also weigh nearly a third the weight of competing cleats, but they don’t sacrifice anything along the lines of strength or durability. In fact, they each weigh just 2.3 ounces. They’re available now for $60. [Purchase]
