Recent Recreational Snowshoe Reviews

Atlas 9 Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

L.L.Bean Men's Trailblazer Snowshoe

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great easy to use snowshoes; perfect for a beginner. I love these because they are so easy to put on and take off with cold fingers. Comes with a carrying bag and ski poles. Bought last year at the end of the season, so only used a few times, but they performed great. Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

rated 3 of 5 stars 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

rated 5 of 5 stars Purchased a family set of snowshoes to use over spring break. Customer service was impeccable and personable, shipping was very fast, and product is excellent! Thank you! Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 5 of 5 stars Best experience ever! Bought a family set and am completely satisfied with the whole experience ordering to arrival! I contacted the company by email and received a response in minutes. They simplified what I would need for my family first starting out, and received more then we would of ever expected. Service, product, price and delivery all amazing! We received four pairs of snowshoes, poles, and carrying bags for an amazing price. They arrived just in time to surprise my family for a March break… Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

Atlas Women's 9 Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great quality basic snowshoe for non-mountaineering use. Comfortable stride and good grip, excellent bindings. After going through three other pairs of snowshoes that failed in the field (snapped frame, broken cleats, broken straps...) I finally ended up with these. They have stood the test of time over a few years on numerous trips, are the most comfortable ones I've had, have excellent and simple to use bindings, and look cool (to me).   The suspension system is really good and the toe lift is… Full review
