Good Design, Poor Quality Control

These shoes provide very good traction on difficult terrains. I was able to walk on frozen lake and deep snow, and I could climb up and down 40 degree slopes with confidence.

Maybe it was just me, but I had to frequently adjust the straps, otherwise the snowshoes would get deteached from my boots.

Komperdell have some quality control issues. During my first hour of use of this product (in Canadian Rockies), one of the crampons fell from one snowshoe and was lost. Note that the crampon was attached to the snowshoe with three screws, so I could not understand how all three screws could fail at the same time on a new item. And this is not an isolated incident. One of my Komperdell trekking pole baskets broke after merely 1-2 hours of use. The other one fall from the pole and was lost in deep snow.
