Yukon Charlie's Trail Series 825

Junk—first time out pole adjustment broke, fourth time strap broke, fifth time out buckle broke. Less than 5 miles now and dumpster material—let's fill up our dumps with junk. I'll never buy these again. Pole adjustment broke buckle for binding, broke less than 5 miles on Yukon Charlie's Chinook snowshoes and dumpster material. If you see a pair of snowshoes without leather binding keep going; the nylon strapping did not hold up less than 5 miles of use. Sat for two years not used, but was in… Full review

Outbound Snowshoe

Good for a first try of the sport for cheap, but I wouldn't depend on them... So me and my wife and kids all got snowshoes because I have enjoyed snowshoeing, and I'm absolutely useless on skies; less than useless... Since my wife and kids were new we didn't want to spend big money, so when they went on sale we bought some budget snowshoes at Canadian Tire under the Outbound make. They had good traction and kept you from sinking in icy crusty snow and deep damp/packy snow. After a few uses the materials… Full review

Atlas 9 Series

Best snowshoes I've used. Have been super dependable and functional. After several years and countless hikes, I can confidently say that these are high quality, functional, and durable snowshoes. I've used a number of others that either failed, broke, were fussy to use, or simply weren't comfortable. The Atlas 9 series has stood up. The binding system is simple and solid. The materials are functional and durable. They do the job very well in terms of float, grip, and comfort, are reasonably light,… Full review

GV Snowshoes Wide Trail

GV Wide Trail snowshoes are oversized utility snowshoes meant to carry the heaviest loads on the softest snow. Flotation and carrying capacity are second to none out of all the snowshoes I’ve used. The weekend after Thanksgiving (US) GV Snowshoes had a 20% off sale, and I decided to order a pair of GV Wide Trail snowshoes that I’d been thinking about for a couple years. I received them two weeks ago and have put about 10 miles on them so far, and here are my thoughts. According to GV, Wide Trails… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

My wife bought me a pair of these after I raved about them while using them at work timber cruising in NW BC all day every day. Now retired I use them for fun, a lot. I've never had a problem with anything bending or breaking. Full review

Crescent Moon Eva All-Foam Snowshoe

I first saw the Crescent Moon EVA snowshoes at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City. That first glance was intriguing with the EVA's interesting structure and a very “spikey” bottom. The fact that they are made from a foam structure was even more intriguing. First Impressions: The first glance was intriguing with an interesting structure and a very “spikey” bottom. The fact that the EVA's are made from a foam structure was even more intriguing. As mentioned above, the unusual… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

My wife and I bought the shoes from BigFoot, and we were amazed at how they functioned. My wife had been snowshoeing previously and was impressed with the ease that the snowshoes functioned. The people at Bigfoot Snowshoes took really good care of my wife and I. They had a Valentine's Day special. My wife's and my 32nd anniversary was this year. We love to hike, and we wanted to try and see if snowshoeing was a good activity for us in the winter, so I wanted to buy her snowshoes for us. Well, I… Full review
