Price Paid: $300-something
Although I haven't tried any other brands of running specific snowshoes, at 148 lbs. I do find these snowshoes great on packed snow, but sink into the powder a little more than what I had expected, although you can still go places you couldn't run with just shoes on. They are light and have good traction and you don't have to change your running stride with their small size, except maybe lifting knees a little higher. The heel straps tend to come loose easily if you don't make sure they are super tight.
