Universal Multigrip Snow Socks Large is rated out of 5 by 44.Rated 4 out of 5 by AMic from Good product I purchased these snow socks for a skiing trip to the French Alps, as these are compliant with the French regulations. On the return trip it was snowing heavily so we had to use them. Having practiced putting them on prior to the trip it took a few minutes to get them on. It's not too difficult and requires a bit of tugging. Once on they are very effective. My only advice: don't take them off too soon! We did, thinking that the worst road conditions were past, and had to put them on again by the side of the road. I would recommend these snow socks.Date published: 2017-02-08Rated 5 out of 5 by AlanGG from Got me home Bought these as I had to abandon my Golf last time it snowed. Hadn't bothered with a practice fit, then got stuck in the snow today. Got these on in about 5 minutes and got home, up a hill with solid packed snow without another skid. Went out again crossing on snow covered and cleared roads. These were good on all surfaces - would have needed to removed chains for clear roads then put them back on for snowy roads.Date published: 2016-01-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaffacakes1137 from Snow socks Very easy to put on - haven't used yet - but feel far more confident just having them in the bootDate published: 2015-02-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Bernie85 from Brilliant! A bit of a challenge to get on as they are tight fitting but amazing once on. I got stuck on ice covered hill and started to wheel spin. Stopped, put these on and off I went. Was considering a four wheel drive purchase but have now changed my mind! Put through a wash in machine and now in their storage bag in boot of car. They also came with a plastic bag to put dirty socks in and a pair of gloves which I thought was a nice gesture!Date published: 2015-02-11Rated 1 out of 5 by mickael from very difficult to take off the wheels! This product was difficult to fit and a real nightmare to take off. I bought these as a security for a ski trip to France. Unfortunately I did have to use them. It took me 40 minutes to fit the 2 wheels (according to the notice it takes 2 minutes) though that was by -3c with a snow storm so I put that down to my inexperience and the conditions) but the main problem was to take them off. You are supposed to just grab the socks and pull strongly. I tried this for over 20 minutes without any success at all. At the end I had to stop an other motorist (fortunately I can speak French) and a young friendly chap was willing to help even though he got himself quite dirty in the process. It took 2 average build men to pull strongly on the socks and be able to take these things off. My car is rear wheel drive which maybe did not help (you can't turn the wheels to get a better access to the back of the wheel) but it was a very stressful experience when you know that you have another 500 miles to go to the ferry port and can't drive with these socks on the dry or at over 25 MPH so they have to go! Unlikely to ever use them again. The quality seems OK and they did the job brilliantly once fitted but it is far too difficult to take them offDate published: 2015-02-04Rated 1 out of 5 by Praia from one of the socks ripped They were difficult to fit and ended up jacking up he car to fit them. had to travel 17kms up a mountain road in snowy conditions disappointingly one of the socks ripped. Sock stayed on just so that we could get up the mountain but will be unable to use it again. The socks looked and felt quality but unfortunately reality was one of them failed.Date published: 2015-01-05Rated 4 out of 5 by dan69 from They work Used while skiing in the French Alps this year. Worked well, and we wouldn't have got up to our apartment without them. We have an Audi A4 Avant, and the clearance between tyres and car body isn't great, so was a bit of a struggle to get the socks on, and took a bit of skin off my knuckles. But still pretty quick - a couple of minutes per wheel. I'd definitely recommend them.Date published: 2014-01-05Rated 5 out of 5 by BEB59 from Snow Socks Brilliant product keeps you going when others can't, a little tricky to fit and remove but it gets easier with practiseDate published: 2013-12-04
