Aluminum Bar Replacement Kit is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FFguideCO from World of Difference These bars are one of the best additions to my fly fishing gear in the longest time. They are like rock Velcro. I guide on many freestone rivers with extremely slick rocks both in and out of the water and the aluminimum bars stick to it all. They hold on bare rock and cut through moss, slime, and algae. I can practically run across rivers that I used to slide and stumble on. I would recommend the crampons if you do a lot of hiking or use only one pair of boots for wading and in the boat, but for a short hike from truck to river they cannot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by semaj from replacement bars I purchased the replacement bar kit when I bought the boots knowing I would need them eventually. The bars were easy to replace and the boots are now good as new. One disappointment I do have is that when the new zigzag pattern bars came out on the new boots they would not work on the older boot. This requires you to buy the new boots to get the new bars. That seems a huge cost to me although the new boots do have some improved features over the old one I can't justify the cost. It would seem to me that Patagonia could make zigzag replacement kits that could go on the old boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by junit from Aluminum Bars are amazing I purchased the Aluminum Bars to place on a pair of wading boots that had worn out soles. These bars have brought those boots back to life. I wore them on both the deschutes and Crooked rivers at this years National Fly Fishing Championships. They provide beter traction than any rubber studded sole I hae ever tried. The internally theaded screw system was easy to install and provides amazing holding. I have several friends that have ordered the bars after seeing how well they worked for me. If you want the best traction on all types of rivers you need to own these aluminum bars.
