Best traction on the market
October 22, 2010
This has been the best snowshoe I have ever used. I have used numerous other manufacture's snowshoes throughout the years going back to the days of wooden shoes with leather bindings. The closed toe binding system is sweet! It allows for a great fit every time. The frame design is the best I have ever used. It allows for a very natural stride for any user in any condition. The shoe will throw a bit of snow on the back of your legs, but that is snowshoeing unless you want to go with a free rotation binding. I think this style gives you the best of both free rotation as well as fix/loaded. The traction system allows for excellent traction in all conditions. Noore slipping on the ice or hard pack. Great for crusty snow or powder. All in all, I am very pleased I purchased these.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
nice shoe but designed wrong

Very nice snowshoe except throws a ton of snow up your back all the way to your head! The tail is designed wrong. Also, nobody needs that much grip on the bottom of the shoe-unless you run/walk on bare ice only! I would return them but I'll manually change them.

I am very happy with this purchase. These snowshoes were very easy to put on and take off. The bindings were simple to use and held my feet in place perfectly and the straps did not loosen at all on a multi-mile hike with varied terrain. The traction was superb for steeper pitches and handled ice-crusted snow, packed powder, and established trails very well. I have yet to experience super deep snow with these shoes, but I can tell that they will handle very well to keep me afloat. The teardrop shape is excellent and allows me to maneuver with ease. The sizing of these shoes is great. I'm 5'6", 130 lbs. and wear a pack. I bought these on sale and even though still a bit pricey, worth every penny.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
