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

MSR Men's Lightning Explore

rated 4 of 5 stars I'm a 200lb man. These snowshoes give terrific, secure grip on steep forested pitches. I love them, save for the caveat mentioned in the cons. Whether along the fall line or perpendicular to it they float beautifully in deep snow above lurking forest floor debris. Nice to enter, adjust, and exit them. I've used them in deep open field and deep snowed in open forest. Really nice. As far as durability, terrific overall except the lateral adjustment on one of the snowshoes. It doesn't really throw… Full review

Tubbs Men's Mountaineer Series

rated 1 of 5 stars Consulting foresters in New England. Paid $250 for these shoes at EMS. Wore these one winter season (Jan 2018 - March 2018) and then four days in November 2018. Then the binding had a catastrophic failure in the the field a result of plain hard wear and tear—not a specific trauma. Poor design. Glad I was not mountaineering. What more information do you need?  Back to MSR's. At least we can repair those. Full review

Crescent Moon Gold Series 10

rated 4 of 5 stars Good all around shoe that excels in backcountry use. Fresh snow and off-trail adventuring benefit from the excellent float. Easy on and off with innovative one-handed binding. The Gold 10 Backcountry snow shoes are part of a line by Crescent Moon, a Colorado company that has been at it since 1997. They manufacture a really wide variety of snowshoes there and have stayed on top of changing times and markets with the recently Trailspace Review Corps reviewed EVA All Foam shoe. The Gold 10s are a more… 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

MSR Men's Revo Explore

rated 4 of 5 stars This snowshoe seems to be a budget-minded option compared to MSR's more technical offerings, which are more complicated to use and also pricier. It's a modern snowshoe designed for trail use due to the size offered (22 and 25 inches, which is small), although flotation tails are offered (more on that later). I bought these because they were on clearance and I needed a trail snowshoe that could handle packed conditions (i.e. narrow trenches left by previous hikers), ice and crust. I have multiple… Full review
