rated 4.5 of 5 stars When snowshoes are too much, but you need a little extra confidence on firm snow and ice, these provide the perfect bite. There I was at the Echo Lake Sno-park near Lake Tahoe. I hadn't been snowshoeing in a couple of seasons, and had vowed this would be a winter I would get out! And it was a beautiful day in perfect conditions. I pulled out my trusty MSR snowshoes, and as I put them on, I realized that the binding straps had some cracks in them, and all four of them snapped before I even got them… Full review
