Summary

Broke apart in less than 10 short hikes...CRAP.

Pros

  • NOT a thing

Cons

  • Cheap materials
  • Hard to repair construction

Used them less than 10 times and the plastic broke and the entire foot piece came out still attached to my foot. Cheap construction...going to attempt fixing them, but would never buy another pair. Even some of the plastic on the decking cracked and broke off.

That's unfortunate, Bob. Thanks for sharing your experience. Care to share a picture of your busted snowshoe in your review for others to see?

Summary

These are junk. The plastic break up around the rivets the first time you wear them. I have two pair, worn one time for a 2-mile hike. We had to stop in the middle and use shoe string to tie them back together to get home.

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • All the rivet points break out and they fall a part.

 Complete and total waste of money. Don't buy or you will be sorry!

Summary

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.

Pros

  • Easy on and off
  • I happen to love the color

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.

I love my shoes. I have the 825's and they are great. This is the 3rd winter I've had them, no problems.

Here in the Northeast we've had lots of snow this winter and I've used them almost every day. Love them.

I purchased a pair of Yukon Charlies Snow Shoes. They aren't worth the price and their customer service reps are terrible. I wore them exactly twice for no more than an hour all together. Pulled them out to use them this year and they are cracked in four different places on the rivets. Cheap construction apparently.

Contacted YC customer service and they will do nothing for me unless I mail - at my expense both ways [$15 each way] and they will examine them to see if they will do anything. Even if they do nothing, I pay to get them back. The customer service person was very rude. I will never buy another YC product and would not recommend.
