From this month last year there was a whole string of comments, by those of you who were not quite sure what to think about an inflatable snowshoe, posted on Trailspace.
The company has had their product on the market for not much more than the past year. Many of you will be quite surprized at the interest generated by these snowshoes along with their track record so far.
Just so you know, I am the inventor / owner of Airlite Inflatable Snowshoes and here is what has been happening with the Airlite .....
We have sold them all over the US, Canada, a few in Europe and Russia, as well as in the Orient, so far. This product has had virtually no advertising and yet word of mouth (Internet) has made this snowshoe pretty much sell it's self. CNN introduced our product as ... "one of the coolest survival gadgets that would even impress MacGyver."
The Airlite Snowshoe Also just won a world wide inventors competition as best invention of 2012, beating out 212 other inventors sporting 236 inventions. Originally designed for snowmachiners, we have sold more to pilots, rescue groups, and extreme outdoor enthusiasts than we have to that original target market. Some of our customers are or are members of …..
The US Navy Special Operations Warfare Development Group
Alaska State Troopers
Alaska Dept of Fish and Game
Colorado Dept of Fish and Game
Utah Dept of Fish and Game
Civil Air Patrol ( in most northern states )
And the list goes on. As it turns out, anyone that lives works or plays where deep snow, soft mud, or wet swampy muskeg could become a hazard, should have the Airlite.
We have had NO dis-satisfied customers, NO returns, No reports of punctures or leaks, and NO bad feed back. One of our very satisfied customers is a member of the Alaska Civil Air Patrol who happens to be a 280 + pound man that is 6'4" tall with size 14 feet, he loves them.
I have personally bee testing these in Alaska since my patent in 2004. I still use the same pair and they have virtully no scrapes, marks, holes, or leaks. They are not a one time use short distance product.
Pleasetake a look at the new puncture testing photos on our website, then ..... lets blog. Feel free to contact me with any questions / comments you may have.
