These are a good snowshoe for smaller children (ages 5 to 7 and maybe 8). Although the 8 X 16 dimension can hold up to 100lbs, the size of the binding limit its use for older children - especially when wearing heavy winter boots.
The bindings are simple to get on and off. The adjustment for the binding is great as it grows with the child and is very secure. These are a great value for those earlier years. They are rugged and are virtually maintenance free.
Saying that they are good up to age 12 in my case was not true. My son outgrew them by age 8 but we had some very good times for the 3 years he had them.
