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.

You smile at the miles of snowy terrain and steep hills you get to hike over with the Easton Mountain Products Men's Artica Hike Snowshoe. Its frame uses flexible materials on the rails for better articulation over uneven terrain that reduces stress in your ankle, knee, and hip, and the raised tips offer an easier stride and step tracking for long-lasting comfort that's sure to keep you on your feet throughout the hike. Made mostly with aluminum, this snowshoe brings the durability without the weight so you can cover miles faster for many seasons.The Quick-Cinch binding system provides a quick and easy one-handed pull-and-go method to get in and out of, and padding covers the binding to hug your boot and eliminate any uncomfortable pressure points. Its decking material is highly durable and withstands most abrasions and punctures. The Virtual Pivot Traction Cam claws into snow deeper for better traction over slippery surfaces, and it allows a more natural step for better control over steep hills. The Climb-Assist heel lift stays tucked away until you lift it for a more comfortable and efficient way to hike up snowy slopes. And the stainless steel crampon resists wear against dirty trails and paved roads.
