I tend to like going through non-traditional trails or breaking my own trails. These snowshoes go through brush and as they claim have reverse. These shoes allow you to back up without hanging up. Great floatation in powdery snow, lightweight, and have ice grips. Bindings are secure, durable, and easy in easy out, even with heavy mittens.
- Money spent goes towards helping veterans get out into Maine wilderness.
- Well made snowshoe with a little Yankee ingenuity involved.
- Ice grips work, but could be better placed
See above, plus see YouTube videos for demo of these or go onto their web site.
These are traditional snowshoes narrowed out and curved on both ends. This allows you to walk forward and backwards without hanging up. They go through thick brush and deep powder with ease. While bigger than the metal style snowshoes are as light as they are.
The really nice feature is the binding, simple yet very secure. These bindings allow quick in and out even with heavy mittens on. The real win is veteran-made and the sales support getting veterans in the outdoors—win win!
Used aluminum-based metal snowshoes for backcountry and wanted something more maneuverable.
