Ice Picks are designed to be literally worn; not tucked away in a pocket and inaccessible when they`re actually needed. 72in of stretchable cord connect the pair of retractable handheld spikes. Hold the handles while putting on your jacket or parka. The retractable cord slides through the arms across your back and out the cuff. The spikes are kept free and clear inside a sheath only activating with downward pressure. Retractable guard on picks. 72in stretchable cord.
