Love the binding sytem!
- Binding system
- Made in the USA
- Pull loop dangles, which could get caught on something
Quality products used on the snowshoes. Binding system easy to use, secure. Pull loop on binding does have excess material hanging to catch on something. I would of preferred a crampon with more bite.
Used 4 times since this review. 8 1/2 out of 10.

Here's what other sites are saying:
Easton Mountain Products tossed out the mold when it created the Men's Artica Hike Snowshoe. Rather than stick to the traditional trend of a fully rigid frame, Eastern Mountain Products gave this snowshoe an articulated frame design with a dynamic flex that adapts to the terrain under your foot. Couple this advance with a split-toe crampon and easy-entry Quick-Cinch binding system, and winter hikers have a new, highly efficient tool for trekking into deep snow beyond the trail.
