Verified Buyer Reviewed by J.Pecora from Montana on Tuesday, January 24, 2017I am a professional photographer and outdoor enthusiast who recently moved to East Glacier Montana from Pennsylvania.
It is colder here in the Rockies and the snow piles up. I knew I was going to need some gear to get through the powder and after considering my needs I decided to pickup these 30" snowshoes. The larger size works great for me since I carry heavy camera gear and the larger surface area helps compensate for that added weight.
I have never worn snowshoes before and I figured out how to put these on in just a few minutes.
Hiking through the snow they stay on tight and keep me from sinking in too much.
I have had them out a few times; some in powder, some in crusty snow. They glide through powder nicely and they bite into crusty frozen snow very well making them suitable for scaling sloped terrain.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Donna from N. Idaho on Monday, February 22, 2016My boyfriend and I share this pair. We both find them difficult to secure to our feet. They are about 6 inches longer and a bit wider than our previous pair so I actually crossed them over like skis the first time I wore them and almost took a header. They are also about a pound heavier than our previous pair which is a lot of weight when considering back packing, etc. Time will tell how they hold up to wearing them x 2 outings a day over the winters. The previous pair (a different maker) held up for 3 years. Sale price was outstanding and worth the price!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Warrior Goddess from WI on Wednesday, January 20, 2016I didnt reailize snowshoe sizing is based on weight. Used them and cannot return because I tripped and scratched them up. Ordered a smaller size. great purchase for a larger person.

Question & Answer
“When I bought these they did not come with any instructions on how to put them on. What do you do with the long ends of the straps that have a snap on the end? Is there a video on how to use the bindings?
We do not have a video for this item. The snap is to put the two ends together after you tighten them. This keeps the ends from getting dragged in the snow and possibly stepped on.
“How accurate are the weight limitations? I weigh 215 but with clothes and some gear will be over the 220 mark. Is there a limit to how much you can go over? What happens to the performance when you go over.”
The 220 lb. capacity is the optimal weight. However our chart shows OK up to 260 lb. The problem when you are over the optimal weight is that you will sink deeper into the snow. This will even more evident in powder and soft snow.||http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/snowshoe-guide/
With the easy fast closing webbing bindings you should be able to adjust them enough to fit over an alpine boot.
