User Review: Little Bear Trek FTC
Price Paid: $59.95
After receipt, compared my new 9 x 30 snowshoes to my wife's series 1025 Atlas shoes, which I've used a couple of times on firm snow.
I'm used to large wooden snowshoes, so trucking around on my wife's shoes seemed like flying and I had to have a modern pair for myself. Bought larger shoes than the wife's for more flotation on powder snow conditions.
Side-by-side comparison of quality and features: Very similar. Seem like equal quality materials. Time will tell.
Little Bear shoes stack up fine, especially for the price I paid. Only minus to date - after using them daily for exercise for the last ten days - is that the binding heel strap could be set at a better angle to grip some boot heels. I have walked out of the bindings a couple of times - kinda depends on which boots I wear.
I first thought the single cross-instep straps to be inadequate, but have actually had no problems with them. My wife looks at them and wishes she only had a single strap other than the two she has - so what do I know?
Would I buy another pair? At retail? Maybe. At sale price and for recreational use? You betcha!
