Reviewed by BY from NY on Saturday, April 11, 2015I am extremely unsatisfied with these snowshoes and have returned them. While other brands (MSR, et al) use a metal hingle to secure your feet to the shoe, this only used the straps. Which allows the shoe to turn almost 45 degrees from your foot, either hurting you or making you sink deep into the snow. Also, the gripping metal teeth under the sole of your foot quickly accumulates ice and snow, which after only a minute or two of walking, compressed into a huge block of ice which exacerbates the sliding foot problem mentioned earlier. Used these for a 5 day hike in the lower Adirondacks. While they are probably fine for a casual stroll with very hard snow 3-5" deep, they stand no match for soft snow or anything deeper.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by reed from maine on Saturday, March 21, 2015I am quite happy with these. First pair I have owned. They seem to be a quality product. Went on a few short hikes, no problems, no complaints.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by kmrylander from Michigan on Monday, February 23, 2015These snowshoes have performed beautifully so far. I get out into the wood, blazing my own trails throughout the winter as often as possible. I've gone through 3 pairs of Costco snowshoes during the last few years.
The binding system isn't the easiest to just slip into and go, but it is fantastic. The stability of the binding once you are in the shoes is great and once your boot is in the webbing system, they are very easy to adjust and tighten. The snowshoes are wider that my previous inexpensive pair, but the extra size is a plus. Each footfall feels very stable and they track straight ahead (other brands of snowshoes I've had had allowed too much side to side movement with the binding).
This was a great purchase for me and I would highly recommend these whether you are upgrading, or just getting your first pair. I'm not sure if a smaller person would find these unwieldy or not. They are larger than the cheaper, average 25" snowshoe, but at 6'2",190 lbs. I didn't notice any difference with the added size (other than the previously mentioned benefits).
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Abuelita84010 from Utah on Monday, December 29, 2014I purchased these for a 6' tall 210# man. He found them to be comfortable & handled well both in powder & hard packed snow trails.
Reviewed by Dan from New York on Wednesday, March 12, 2014I really wanted to like these. The frame is well designed--very quick. Like the tapered design. Two major design flaws however made these a return for me: 1. Bindings--HORRIBLE. Cumbersome, difficult to put on (every time)....also doubt they will hold up over time. 2. Front crampons--very sharp and grippy, BUT their placement directly under the front of the foot with only a thin piece of flimsy pleather separating the boot (and I was wearing very good Vasque boots) ended up causing discomfort after only half an hour of use. Shame, these really could be great shoes.
Answer As a rule they do not come with instructions. Maybe this will help. They side their shoe into the front staps. Make Sure the buckle of the rear strap is to the outside of the foot. Then pull the back strap over the heel. They need to tighten the front first, then the heel. the ends of the front straps with the snap is then snapped around the ankle just so they are not flopping around.|Here are some links to videos that may help.|http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=how+to+put+on+snow+shoes&view=detail&mid=C809DDBF9EBF469B5D40C809DDBF9EBF469B5D40&first=0|http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=how+to+put+on+snow+shoes&mid=50F61BF0E5A6CF24233250F61BF0E5A6CF242332&view=detail&FORM=VIRE4
