Recent Snowshoe Reviews

Faber North Cliff

rated 3 of 5 stars A good snowshoe aimed at the recreational market, but that is both reasonably priced and packed with features. It is also designed AND made in Canada. A very good option for someone wanting a trail snowshoe that can handle climbs, steep descents, and a bit of running in a variety of snow conditions, all in the same day. Ease of use: The bindings are easy enough to use and set (pull on the strap in front then in the back), but they are much more finicky than they would seem at first glance. The material… Full review

Louis Garneau Men's 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

L.L.Bean Snowshoe Bag

rated 4 of 5 stars An excellent way to keep snowshoe crampons away from other gear and clothing. And a nice method of carrying snowshoes. Here is a good looking snowshoe carrying bag with two carrying straps—one for the hand, one for over the shoulder. It also has a Velcro strap at each end on the front side for carrying ski or trekking poles. Zips open in a big U. Measure's 10x36 inches and easily holds snowshoes 10 by 34...and is made of ripstop nylon. A bag like this is a nice way to keep snowshoe crampons from… Full review

British Military Surplus Snowshoes

rated 4 of 5 stars Surplus, made for soldiers carrying gear, great for kids and inexpensive. I bought these last year in an inexpensive attempt to get my 11-year-old grandson into snowshoeing. He loves them. My grandson is just a typical kid, not big nor small, but is somewhat athletic as he isn't  a couch potato. I first put them on him in the yard and said walk around. He easily was climbing snowbanks and getting around so I put my own shoes on, grabbed my pack and said, "Let's go across the street"...where I… Full review

Redfeather Alpine 180

rated 4 of 5 stars These shoes hold up to heavy use with max weight on them, but do have their problems. I have used these hard for two seasons [not this one, the last two]. I've used them on crust, crossing streams, deep snow, on hills, in the woods, in heavy brush and in rocky terrain in the Adirondacks. I like them. They are easily put on and adjusted, but the widest boot may just not fit in the front straps. I wear a 13w and do have boots that won't fit. They float well and that's saying a lot since I weigh 240… Full review

Louis Garneau Men's Blizzard

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 same this season. I can say I have a brand new pair of 10x36's bought late last spring 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. They did come… Full review

Atlas 12 Series

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bindings fell apart after 7 or 8 uses. Atlas claims a lifetime warranty but no repair offered for my claim. Will find another brand next time. Bindings fell apart after 7 or 8 uses. Contacted Atlas and they said no parts available. They didn't respond to warranty inquiries at all. Full review

MSR Men's Lightning Ascent

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I've owned these snowshoes for five years and the binding (made of very hard but brittle material) has now cracked in multiple places on both bindings making my $280 pair of snowshoes worthless. Bindings will break at the rivet points after ~100 - 150 miles. You'll need to get new snowshoes since MSR does not respond to communications. I'd suggest Faber Mountain Masters, a much superior design and binding system. Full review

MSR Men's Revo Explore

rated 4 of 5 stars Great snowshoe with unique binding system for easy in/out use. Metal frame provides great traction. The Revo Explore snowshoe offers a unique binding system for an easy way to put your snowshoes on and off.  The frame of the snowshoe offers great traction when hiking in icy or packed snow terrain and along traverses.  Revo Explore snowshoes are designed to provide all day comfort when tackling rolling and backcountry terrain. This is my first pair of snowshoes, and I received them as a birthday… Full review
