We just bought a couple sets after renting this exact set from our REI. My wife has tired of slipping around on cross country skis so absolutely loved the stability on many types of snow with these. The 22 inch decking was great in some compact snow we started out in. Once we got a mile down the pat... Read More

    I bought these snowshoes on the recommendation of my brother-in-law who is about my size (190 lbs) and does more snowshoeing than anyone I know. I have only used them for one long day and on crunchy snow. I think they may not be the best choice for fluff, but they worked great for semi-soft snow. They were so light I almost forgot I was wearing them. I crunched over brush, saplings, beaver dams and etc... and they stayed on all day.

    Perfect for more aggressive winter hikes, purchased after borrowing friends pair to complete some 4k's in the White mountains. I've already returned with my new MSR's in the recent snow. Conditions were considerably more powdery. I broke trail the entire way. 125 lbs not including the full pack I was carrying, used the tail attachment for this hike. Very satisfied! Excited to continue testing them.

    These are great snowshoes and have been on my list. I've rented them and was already sold on the product - just waiting on the right price. And Sierra Trading comes through WITH the float tails included in the package. Perfect. Now I just need a bag.

    Not many places these snowshoes won't get you. Amazing traction on steep terrain. Highly recommended!

    I just used these this week in the Adirondacks and 2 feet of firm snow. The majority of my 5 mile hike was on a little used snowmobile trail and I questioned whether putting the tails on or carrying them along since I knew I would be off trail at some points. I weigh 250+ lbs and decided to walk with the tails on and I was very pleased with the light weight. I have been using all sorts of snowshoes and different construction through the years and I LOVE these!! The only thing I think could use improvement is the bindings. The bindings did work well once strapped in, but I am used to some speedier binding hookups than these. The nice thing about these bindings is that they store flat, so they are compact, which is nice if you want to transport or pack these in to some location.
