Blizzard II

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Louis Garneau Blizzard II snowshoe has excellent flotation and traction. Its BOA binding system is easy to use with gloves and cushions the whole front of your foot, with none of the pressure points common to straps. Even though we have next to no snow on the ground right now, I decided I was going to buy another pair of snowshoes (actually two pairs, I got a deal on the second pair that I couldn't pass up) and put my faith in the fact that it HAS to snow more this winter. I received them last… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Fine snowshoes. I wish I could truly review mine, but in the middle of the most snowless winter I probably have lived through I cannot. We have no snow and haven't had more than two inches of sameĀ this season. I can say I have a brand new pair of 10x36's bought late last springĀ and they look great and they appear to be tough as bullhide, but I do not know. They do measure almost an inch over 36. I did pay $94 for mine on a Sierra Trading Post closeout. And I look forward to trying the BOA system. Full review

Explorer B-16 Panniers

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These panniers for cycling are great for their money. The only bad thing is the bungee cord on the bottom. It is very weak. This set of panniers are made for mounting on the rear rack of a bike. I do recommend these. The extra light attaching points on the back are a good idea, though I've never used them. I've had my panniers about four months. Full review

Freeshape FX Pulse II

rated 1 of 5 stars I bought these snowshoes since the quality of the bindings look great and I liked the shape. They seemed that they would be great to be walking on any type of snow. After only 2 or 3 outings with these, I noticed that the deck was splitting on the sides wither the rivits join. Upon closer inspection, I noticed many tears all over the deck.... It seemed like the snowshoe was literally falling apart. I brought them back to the shop where I got them and was told that this was a re-occuring problem… Full review
