Verified Buyer Reviewed by Denise from Wisconsin on Tuesday, January 26, 2016Recently purchased these to replace an older pair. These are much lighter and less bulky than the last pair and are easy to put on and take off with gloves on. Very happy with this purchase!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike t. from Colorado on Tuesday, December 29, 2015I have used these 3 times now. So far they work great. I weigh about 170lbs and they work just fine. The bindings are easy to get on and off and stay in place.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Brad from Utah on Wednesday, January 7, 2015First: I love that these shoes are made in USA!
Second: Binding straps are simple to use, even with gloves on at 10 degrees in powder.
Third: Steep accents including log and rock crossings were easier than expected.
Fourth: Shoes lift in the back with each step which tosses powder snow onto the backs of legs but the shoe "tails" raise above the snow and debris helping me negotiate obstacles and direction changes in the deep snow.
Fifth: Crampons are stainless steel tuff! Firmly planting my feet while ascending steep forest trails I felt the CRUNCH!! of rock under foot several times. At the car I noticed two bent crampon cleats and several scratches on the tubing frame. It took good effort to bend cleats back with my Leatherman so I can't imagine a "lighter" crampon material holding up.
Sixth: Descending steep terrain was way easier than expected and fun as each step would slide a bit before stopping. Those huge crampons are big for this reason!
Seventh: Side hills were easier than expected with firm kicks into the snow. Watch out!! I felt like I could go anywhere...Even into snow slide danger! On one short steep side hill the top layer of powder slipped two feet down slope manifesting the importance of choosing your route carefully!
Eighth: Wearing these snowshoes on the packed trail hurt my knees after a mile or so. Both my wife and I took our snowshoes off and strapped them to my hydro pack and continued our hike. Along comes a group of six people, all in smaller plastic type snowshoes. I initially thought I'd bought the wrong Snowshoes! My fears left me as soon as we left the packed trail, donned our snowshoes and headed into virgin powder at a fork in the trail. We were the first to take this trail and my 30" Snowshoes sank a good 7" into the soft snow(even deeper while climbing) under my 160 lb. weight. For virgin snow and backcountry these shoes proved to be excellent!!! If you don't plan to leave the packed trail and have to have snowshoes on your feet as part of the whole ensemble then by the small flexible plastic type shoes.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Larry from Minneapolis, MN on Thursday, December 4, 2014The snowshoes are great! Perfect for varied terrain. I am happy with my purchase.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Snowgoat from Crater Lake Oregon on Thursday, January 17, 2013First time snowshoers and pleasantly surprised. Nice product and works like a dream in all types of snow. Straps were a little long for my boots and somewhat confusing at first. An adjustable buckel design would be nice upgrade. Overall, completely satisfied and better than the cheaper imports I was looking at
Verified Buyer Reviewed by therocknrolldr from SLC, UT on Wednesday, January 16, 2013I haven't had a chance to use these snow-shoes on a major outing but it just dumped over 2 feet of that wonderfull fluffy/power snow which Utah is known for. I snowshoed around the a city park and everthing worked very well. The construction of the snow-shoes looks great.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Muddysnowshoes from Ontario, Canada on Saturday, January 12, 2013Although these are my first pair of aluminum; as far as length and width I have no trouble manouvering about in them. I was using an elongated wood & copolymer combination bear paw and could ski down any hill. The claw pattern on these Treks are perfect for going up or down hills, snow-covered rocky terrain or deep snow and ice. I weigh about 145lbs;@ 5ft. tall and only sink 5-6 inches in deep powder. No differences there compared to my wood ones. Awesome snowshoe. Would not buy any other brand except REDFEATHERS.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Wildlife Guy from Pocahontas County, West Virginia on Tuesday, January 8, 2013These snowshoes were a Christmas present from my wife. They looked great, but I was really impressed when I tried them on our crusted snow and ice-covered trails. Lightweight, feeling like there was nothing on your feet, they held back on crusted downhill snow. Also, they held a good grip on our rural ice-covered lane. The adjustments are very easy to make so they fit just fine. Looking forward to using them for hunting, winter camping, and long hikes.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Loseit from Stansbury Park Utah on Monday, January 7, 2013So far so good with these snow shoes. Seemed to do the job!! Having fun
