Universal Multigrip Snow Socks Medium is rated out of 5 by 20.Rated 3 out of 5 by gec1 from Easier than Snow Chains On last years ski trip I hired a car and snow chains. It was a nightmare figuring out how to fit them on even after a couple of trial runs, and even more difficult to fit the chains in the snow at the side of the road. After reading reviews of these snow socks, they sounded ideal. Again, this year we had to stop and fit these due to terrible road conditions on the way to the resort. We had again carried out a trial run prior to leaving for the resort. They were a bit fiddly to fit at first, but after a couple of attempts we got the hang of it. When we had to fit them on the snow covered road, we had them on in about 2-3 minutes and spent another few minutes backwards and forwards checking that they had centralised on the wheels - which they did perfectly. I kept to the 40KPH limit which was more than fast enough as we overtook quite a few people going a lot slower. They gripped perfectly and we did not have any steering / slipping issues at all. However, the only dissapointment is that when we removed them, which is a bit harder than fitting them, we noticed that one of them has a tear in the side wall. We han't driven on any bare tarmac other than the odd very small bare patches in the snow covered road. So I am concerened that they will break completely during our next trip. I had bought 2 pairs in case of this eventuality, but if we are only going to get one trip out of them it is an expensive option.Date published: 2015-02-23Rated 2 out of 5 by Batley from ok but easily damaged The socks were fairly easy to put on and are probably good in town environments. We used them in a very rural area and the conditions were too bad for them to make much difference. They shredded in places where the wheel spun even in snow. So overall very disappointedDate published: 2015-02-11Rated 5 out of 5 by Happysnowsock from fantastic product Highly recommended. These snow socks have been perfect in the recent bad weather, enabling me to drive safely down country roads. They were initially difficult to fit but once I mastered the technique I could fit and remove relatively quickly.Date published: 2015-02-06Rated 5 out of 5 by Feebster69 from JUST THE JOB FOR WINTER DRIVING Quick and easy to fit; should be just what you need for winter driving.Date published: 2013-11-27Rated 5 out of 5 by TimoR from Ace snow socks I recently went to Andorra skiing taking a hire car from Barcelona airport. As soon as we started climbing up the mountain, the snow started. I pulled over, popped on my snow socks, and away I went. Many others were stranded. A fantastic alternative to snow chains which look like a menza pussle at the best of times (not least when you are cold and at the side of a mountain road in the dark!). These come highly recommended. I bought 3 sizes as I wasn't sure what size my hire car tyres would be. The unused sets I returned to halfords and they were fine about it.Date published: 2013-03-13Rated 5 out of 5 by LuhDuh from Got me out of a pickle! During the recent snowy spell we had and being a fairly new driver I decided to invest in a set of snow socks and needless to say it took me 40 minutes to drive to get them and 10 to get back home! Very effective product, easy to fit and take off and also you get a few bemused looks of other people for a bit of fun! Very good product, would definitely reccomend.Date published: 2013-02-03Rated 4 out of 5 by Adash from Universal Multigrip Snow Socks Driving home on first day of heavy snow and there was no way I could get my car up the back roads to my house. Bought a pair of these and they got me the rest of the way home including up a steep hill. Will be keeping them in my boot for emergencies.Date published: 2013-02-01Rated 4 out of 5 by SylvieAnnie from It worked for me! Purchased tyre socks in last snow episode. My nursing colleague and myself got stuck going up icy hill. I put socks on hakf way up the hill. It was a bit difficult but I got the knack taking into account I'm 58 with health problems. It certainly got us up the hill and on to the next patient. I put the soggy socks into plastic bag supplied, washed them and they dried well and fitted back into the neat red bag easily. I certainly feel more confident having brought them as can use in our different types of wintry weather and relatively easy to apply by myself and fitted hospice vehicle too.Date published: 2013-02-01
