Komperdell Mountain snowshoe-27"

Reviewed by woodstrider from New York on Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Purchased these and they arrived yesterday, just in time for the snow-storm that hit NYC with about a foot of snow. So, I took them out to Central Park to try them out in the new powder. Out of the box they were ready to go and with only minor adjustments I had them on my boots and trekking up and down hills and across snow fields. The traction devise looked well designed so I found a slope of about 45 degrees and climbed it with confidence- no back sliding. Side-hilled without lateral slippage. I found the binding very easy to use- the straps tightened with one hand and the soft bindings will conform to any boot shape and size, though the very extremes may be hard to accommodate. No buckles to struggle with (in the past I have had ice get jammed in the buckles and there was always the concern of them breaking) and that is a big plus. I look forward to trying them out in the mountains for an extended trial. I would definitely recommend them with confidence, to anyone who wanted a pair of mountaineering snowshoes.
