I was really disappointed in these shoes unfortunately... The problem I encountered was that with every step I took, the shoes would fling snow down my back, down my neck and even over my head! By the time I finished my 1 hour trek my entire back was covered.
Also, the suspension system (which in theory is a great idea) would snap the snowshoes on my foot which made walking on trail awkward. I weight 130lbs and I heard this was a typical problem for lighter people using these shoes.
My brother has the male version and loves them. He doesn't have that problem, his only fling snow up to his knees and the suspension helps heavier people walk.
The binding are great however, easy to use and your foot is very comfortable and secure but despite this I took my pair back to the store and got a different brand and I'm very, very happy with my decision.

After many years of poor snow conditions for cross country skiing in our area, three years ago I bought two pairs of these snowshoes - the 1025 for me and the 1030 for my husband. They rank as one of the best purchases I've ever made. We have used these snowshoes many times each winter. My husband and I just returned from a week long vacation in NE Minnesota where we used our Atlas Elektra 10 series snowshoes to:
- cross frozen Chequamegon Bay at night (Book Across the Bay event)
- hike through woodlands on the Superior Hiking Trail
- explore on and alongside the spectacular Cascade River
- take breaks while skiing yurt-to-yurt
These snowshoes have expanded our getting into the outdoors during a season when some folks are sitting indoors and hoping for "better weather." I highly recommend them.
