Atlas Elektra 9 Series
Price Paid: $100
Terrible design. The open spaces in the back collect snow, and the suspension mechanism flips it up. I was soaked in less than 10 min.
Also, the hard plastic binding is hard to fit when it's cold--it gets stiff and unruly. My husband has Tubbs and I used them without any snow flipping, and a very easy, comfortable fit around my boots. Would not recommend this product.
Back to the drawing board, Atlas.
