Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Kristin from Colorado on Sunday, February 18, 2018At the time I purchased these, they were described as having heel lifts. I didn't see heel lifts in the pics, and chatted with an online rep regarding this because sometimes pics are inaccurate. The online rep confirmed that they had heel lifts. They arrived and did not have heel lifts. At least STP updated their description of this product since my inquiry. These are not $279 mountaineering snowshoes. No heel lifts = fatigue with hills/mountains. Crampons are poorly placed and cheap construction. The forefoot does not pivot as you walk. They are probably worth the current $79 price tag but no more, so don't think you are getting a deal. I purchased these for my father, and he hasn't used them yet but content to try them rather than return them and pay a little more or wait for end of season sales to get true mountaineering snowshoes. They get 2 stars for that and for fitting onto his size 15 boots. If they were for me, I would return them.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Northeast from Northeast on Friday, December 30, 2016Bought these for myself last year, now a second set because I like them so much. Extremely easy binding, do not need to take mittens off. Soft neoprene like material does not break like the harder plastic on most other snowshoes when it is -30F! Price is unbeatable! Excellent grip for steep hikes
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).

“Do these have a heel lift? The description says they do, but I do not see it in the picture.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. These do not have a heel lift.
“How do the bindings work? Was surprised that the shoes did not come with instructions. They are about 90% obvious, but I see 2 different ways to fasten and need clarification.”
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
“how do the bindings work? It is not clear from the picture. Is it a rachet closure? Pull strap?”
The Komperdell Mountaineer Snowshoes have pull straps
