Metolius created the 1-inch 5-Step Aider with traditional, time-tested construction with 5 staggered, triangular steps.

The design is improved on over conventional aiders with Biothane step stiffeners to keep the steps open and a dedicated clip-in point at the bottom for attachment to other aiders.

    Comments about Metolius 1-inch 5-Step Aider:

    These are traditional Etrier-style Aiders and they work well. They have good step-stiffeners which make for easy entry. The two top-steps have hero-loops sewn in for high-stepping and there is a burly grab-loop at the clip-in point. These are well-made and affordable.

    Comments about Metolius 1-inch 5-Step Aider:

    Pretty good aider. The steps aren't super awesome but they do stay open and they're comfortable to stand on for long periods of time. Like most aiders, your feet will slip around when you're jugging. These steps tend to turn inside out (placing the rubber on the bottom - especially the bottom step) which I guess doesn't really make a difference but it's annoying nontheless. The only majoy issue is that the rubber causes the steps to get caught in cracks and hangled up in between daisys and the lead line, etc.
