Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $200

Pros

  • Binding

Cons

  • Material quality
  • Easton Customer Service

Great snowshoe to walk with and really like the bindings.

However, after around 30 km, one strap of the binding started to break apart. I have contacted many times the Easton Customer Service Dept but they never resolved my problem neither they offered me to replace the strap even if it's supposed to be lifetime guarantee.

As a well know company, they should have resolved my problem quickly, but the winter is over and I'm still waiting an answer from them. So don't buy the snowshoes for their supposed lifetime guarantee because, like me, you will be quite dissapointed.

Here's what other sites are saying:

You love tracking over deep powder in isolated valleys, and so does the Eastern Mountain Products Artica Backcountry Snowshoe. Its aluminum frame utilizes flexible materials on the rails to help you cover the ever-changing terrain out in the backcountry, and it absorbs the impact that would otherwise stress your ankle, knee, and hip so you can hike longer and more comfortably. Easton Mountain Products raised the tip and tail to help you hike up steep sections with ease. The Quick-Cinch binding system offers an easy way to strap in and out with a one-handed pull, and padding covers your boot without adding any uncomfortable pressure points. The durable deck helps you float over deep powder, and it won't puncture or tear when you hit rockier terrain. Its Virtual Pivot Traction Cam claws into slippery surfaces with the firm traction you need to feel confident, and Split-Axis crampons pivot independently from one another to give you a more stable balance over uneven terrain. When popped into place, the Climb-Assist heel lift provides a more comfortable climb over steep sections with its efficient foot position.
