User Review: Atlas 8 Series (825)
Price Paid: $120
For me, the big selling point for the Atlas 825 snowshoes is the binding. It is very easy to get into and out of this binding, which encompasses the front of your boot in sort of a plastic clamshell, with a strap around the heel.
My only real complaint is that I found that my foot seems to gradually slide back in the binding, particularly when going uphill. As this happens, the space between the front of the boot and the binding tends to fill up with snow. So every once in a while I have to knock out that snow, kick my boot into the binding again, and tighten the heel strap.
That aside, this is a great pair of snowshoes.
