    What footwear do you use these in?

    My Polish racing wellies. :)

    They fit in my Dude's too.

    Hoping these also fit my NB's (currently in Blues) the new Sorbothane Cush'n'steps seem a bit soft compared to the grey ones.

    I've been looking at those Nama Claws. I had my prussicks freeze on the ridgeline a few years ago and it was a massive PITA.

    Yeah I went for the full set up, could have just bought the claws without the Dutch bling but thought, why not ;) Youtube video of the Nama Claws makes it look sooooooo easy

    The thickest, in the pain reducing bracket. I have some big volume shoes for them to go in and a painful right foot.

    Which version are you using now ed?

    I bought the 12's after your comments and love them, but they won't last forever so thinking about the 14's

    Happily I can now get 50% at runners need so may get some while they still have them in stock.

    Edit-- see it's the 13's from other comments

    There's 4 nice features on Cascadia 14s that makes them worth going and having a look before you buy. Overall they are IMO more comfortable than 12s. I still like my 12s but they are just about falling off my feet.

    1. The tread pattern.
    2. There's an elasticated mesh pouch that you tuck your laces into that stops them undoing when you are going through a close heather trod for example.
    3. The tongue bellows goes right down the side of the foot and into the sole unit. Very comfortable.
    4. You can get them in a wide fitting (but limited colours if you go for this)

    Nitecore Nu25 and a replacement Petzl e-lite ... my attempt at getting lighter in the light department. USB rechargeable was the draw.... Although it’s going to have to impress above my current zebralight.
