Redfeather Explore Series

photo: Redfeather Explore Series hiking snowshoe

This is a first time purchase of snowshoes and I reviewed a lot of comments and reviews to help me make the best selection. I promised myself that I would provide candid comments to add to the body of information so that others could have inputs to help them make choices.

I was very pleased with the quality of the snowshoes that I received. My first reaction was surprise at how light they were but after repeated use I am convinced that the are rugged and well designed and the light weight is part of their great design.

I am over 65 and have the 36" shoes. I have a slight problem tightening the bindings but that is more due to my fitness and flexibility than the utility of the bindings. I also have found that the bindings just need to be snug not excessively tight. The removal of the shows is easy and requires only one strap to be loosened.

The ease of fore and aft rotation of the foot made the learning process a lot easier and will make long trips a lot less fatiguing.

The Philadelphia area was just blessed with two major snow storms which gave me a great opportunity to use the shoes on a daily basis. I was glad I purchased the 36" shoes which were correct for my weight rather than succumb to a recommendation to go with 30" shoes. The snows we just had were dry and light and I really felt the benefit of the proper size shoes.

Bottom line, I am really happy with the shoes and I look forward to years of winter enjoyment with these snowshoes.
