Gravel grids / pavers on a slope

I have two quite narrow sloping paths, one is straight and one is banana shaped.

at the moment they have weed fabric and gravel on top, which is in need of upgrade. 

Has anyone used gravel grids in this situation? I’d need to be able to cut them quite easily. Would they stay put on a slope and hold onto the gravel? Does it need to be quite small gravel? 

Any product recommendations?

    They may help a bit, but the surface gravel may travel and leave the grids exposed. Angular gravel will help, not laid too deep. Putting in steps would help more, could just be a piece of wood pegged across the path.

    If the gravel moves and leaves the grids exposed, there wouldn’t be much point In me doing this. A bit more googleing has come up with some products fine on a 15% gradient.  Not sure they are aimed at the DIY market though.
