Northern Lites Backcountry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Northern Lites still offers the Backcountry for $240. I've had mine for years, and agree they are one of the lightest and easiest to use in the backcountry. The only model that's better for bantam weight folks is their Elite (8x25) if and only if you are under 175 lbs with a backpack! For more aggressive slopes, I'd love a pair of their Predator series, which replaces their aluminum cleats with steel in more places. But the overall Northern Lites build is the same...much lighter frame than other… Full review

Tubbs Women's Mountaineer Series

rated 5 of 5 stars I received these snowshoes this season as part of my involvement as a member of the TUBBS Snowshoe Ambassador Team. I requested this model, to test it out on our variable backcountry terrain here in Vermont. I have previously reviewed my TUBBS Flex Alps on this site (purchased from before my involvement with TUBBS), and if you check, you can see that I really like the Flex Alps. The Mountaineers are a framed snowshoe, and I was extremely happy with their performance this past season! This review… Full review

Louis Garneau Women's Versant

rated 3 of 5 stars Bindings disappointing, didn't fit around boot and heel moved. I did a lot of research before I bought these to replace my 20-year-old super reliable Tubbs. Unfortunately, I will be returning them and looking for something else. The binding system, which was why I chose these, didn't fit properly around my boot, no matter how I adjusted them (and I'm a gear junkie, I tried lots of variations of foot position and tension). There were gaps at the front part of the wrap around the boot and as I walked,… Full review

MSR Denali

rated 5 of 5 stars While no longer being sold, these are great snowshoes that can be used in just about any snow conditions and have great traction features for climbing steeper slopes and crossing side slopes. I have owned a pair of the MSR Denali snowshoes since the mid 1990's and have been regularly been using them each winter since that time. I have always liked the design of these snowshoes and they have worked well in the heavy wet/icy/crusty snow we get up here in Washington State. I am about 190 lbs and even… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 5 of 5 stars Purchased a family set of snowshoes to use over spring break. Customer service was impeccable and personable, shipping was very fast, and product is excellent! Thank you! Full review

MSR Men's Lightning Trail

rated 5 of 5 stars Rugged snowshoes that you'll forget you're even wearing due to their light weight. Three-strap bindings keep them securely on your feet, and the 360 Degree Traction frame and toothed crossbars keep you securely on the ground. Even the most hardcore people—which I certainly am not!—take it easier sometimes, and that's what MSR Lightning Trail snowshoes are for. When you're not doing prolonged ascents in the mountains the extra weight of heel lifters and a more beefy frame is just that—extra… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 5 of 5 stars Best experience ever! Bought a family set and am completely satisfied with the whole experience ordering to arrival! I contacted the company by email and received a response in minutes. They simplified what I would need for my family first starting out, and received more then we would of ever expected. Service, product, price and delivery all amazing! We received four pairs of snowshoes, poles, and carrying bags for an amazing price. They arrived just in time to surprise my family for a March break… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 5 of 5 stars My wife and I bought the shoes from BigFoot, and we were amazed at how they functioned. My wife had been snowshoeing previously and was impressed with the ease that the snowshoes functioned. The people at Bigfoot Snowshoes took really good care of my wife and I. They had a Valentine's Day special. My wife's and my 32nd anniversary was this year. We love to hike, and we wanted to try and see if snowshoeing was a good activity for us in the winter, so I wanted to buy her snowshoes for us. Well, I… Full review

MSR Denali

rated 4 of 5 stars These are indestructible snowshoes. I have had these snowshoes for about 10 years now. They are very indestructible, which is a good thing when hiking over rocks and branches. I have not used them in deep powder. In the Northeast where I am the snow is usually somewhat wet and these work fine. I am 220 pounds so I have the longer tails attached. I have not used them while carrying a heavy pack. I think if I did I would need bigger snowshoes to increase the float. Overall I like these but the rubber… Full review
