Recent Recreational Snowshoe Reviews


rated 5 of 5 stars Love, love, love MSR snowshoes. After a trail day event to try a few brands of snow shoes and hearing what fellow hikers had to say about their snowshoe experience, I purchased MSR. Once you figure out which shoe to put on which foot, you are good to go for a day out in the snow. Easy to get  on and off. Made well and does not kick up snow onto your back that some other brands can do. They did not feel like I had anything on my feet. Just walk and go! Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 0.5 of 5 stars What a horrible experience. Purchased two pairs of these and they are terrible! Started falling apart the first time out. We didn't walk on anything but snow. These are the worst snowshoes I have ever used.  They have several flaws: The ratchet bindings loosen very quickly, so you have stop to tighten them every few minutes.  The poles close no matter how tight you set them. The baskets that attach to the bottom of the poles broke in the first outing.  The shoes themselves are poor quality. The… Full review

L.L.Bean Men's Winter Walker

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is my first pair of snowshoes and I'll have to say I'm impressed with the quality and ease of adjustment these snowshoes have. I bought these snowshoes three years ago and have had a blast with them, both in the woods and open fields. So easy to just step in, tighten, and away I go. The built-in crampons mean ice (which I've used these on) is no problem whatsoever. I'd recommend these to anyone. There may be better out there, but for entry level and price these are tough to beat. Full review

Redfeather Men's Hike

rated 5 of 5 stars As a relative novice to snowshoeing, I found the Redfeather Hike to be easy to put on, natural to hike in, and comfortable. They outperformed the snowshoes I rented from REI. Once a year, I get to attend a conference in Boulder, CO. Each year, the conference organizer (Tom) invites attendees to arrive a day early for a bit of snowshoeing in the front range of the Rockie Mountains. My first year, I rented snowshoes from the local REI (I'm sorry to say, I can't remember the brand). They were "okay,"… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars About the only thing that would hurt these snowshoes is throwing them in a fire! They're made of bomb-proof, injection molded, high impact plastic and can take more abuse than anything I've seen. Best for on-trail hiking but be forewarned — plastic is LOUD, especially on a packed trail. I like getting the cons out of the way first so I can go on and list all the really good stuff.  So, here you go... Con: These snowshoes are heavy. They're made of high impact, injection molded plastic, so once… Full review

Ganka GKSII Snowshoes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Really easy getting in and out of bindings, durable and well made. Very lightweight, comes with a storage bag which doubles as a pack. Well worth the money which wasn't very much. Been looking for snowshoes for the wife and I. We live in Bathurst, NB, Canada, and are limited in what and where we can purchase. I have a pair of older handmade snowshoes which work very nice. They float on the snow lol, Years ago I bought a pair of aluminum ones from Canadian Tire and they were awful. So upon searching… Full review

Atlas Elektra 9 Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Granted, these are my first pair of snowshoes, but I am quite pleased with them! I thought they perform well and I don't have the problem of snow being kicked up from the back. I've done just a little running with them so far, but hope to do more. All I remember about snowshoeing were those horrible wooden, tennis racket/boat things we wore in Phys Ed in junior high 30 years ago. Based on friends telling me I had to try it again and hoping to be able to try some snow shoe running or at least maintain… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Base began falling apart/tearing after three years of light use. Looks like crampons can come up and cut the base straps, other stress tears, too. I weigh 160 lbs and was using Size 25 so shouldn't have been overstressing them. Disappointing. Full review

Yukon Charlie's Women's Trail Series 825

rated 5 of 5 stars My first pair of snowshoes, but I do not see a reason to change. Easy on and easy off. They stay on while out enjoying the snow. I would definitely recommend them. I am 5'6" and 128 pounds. They are easy to size to your snow boot or hiking boot. I have used them a half a dozen times or so, in deep soft snow and on icy crunchy snow of the Pacific Northwest Cascade mountains. There are some signs of use, but no flaws in the gear.  Full review
