These are my first set of snowshoes so I don't have…

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $159.99

These are my first set of snowshoes so I don't have anything to compare them to. The bindings are easy to use and comfortable. When I used these on somewhat packed snow they worked great, I was able to walk the same as I normally do and it didn't seam like I had anything but hiking boots on.

I also had a chance to use these snowshoes in deep powder when I went off the trail. With my gear I weigh around 185 lbs so I am towards the upper limit for powder but still under the 190 lb suggested powder limit. I sank into the snow more than I would have liked but was able to get around OK with the help of my trekking poles. I traced my steps back to the trail by stepping in the same places as my way into the woods I was able to walk with no problem and no further sinking into the snow.

Overall I enjoyed using these snowshoes and they would be excellent for people who stay on a trail or walk on somewhat packed snow. If you plan on using them in deep powder they still work ok but I would imagine that a longer snowshoe would be better. Bottom line, Great for trails, OK in powder, Very comfortable and Light.

I love mine. I particularly like the ease of use.

I love mine. I particularly like the ease of use. Great shoe. The only reason I don't rate it higher is something must be wrong with it.
