    I am a professional photographer and outdoor enthusiast who recently moved to East Glacier Montana from Pennsylvania.
    It is colder here in the Rockies and the snow piles up. I knew I was going to need some gear to get through the powder and after considering my needs I decided to pickup these 30" snowshoes. The larger size works great for me since I carry heavy camera gear and the larger surface area helps compensate for that added weight.

    I have never worn snowshoes before and I figured out how to put these on in just a few minutes.
    Hiking through the snow they stay on tight and keep me from sinking in too much.

    I have had them out a few times; some in powder, some in crusty snow. They glide through powder nicely and they bite into crusty frozen snow very well making them suitable for scaling sloped terrain.

    My boyfriend and I share this pair. We both find them difficult to secure to our feet. They are about 6 inches longer and a bit wider than our previous pair so I actually crossed them over like skis the first time I wore them and almost took a header. They are also about a pound heavier than our previous pair which is a lot of weight when considering back packing, etc. Time will tell how they hold up to wearing them x 2 outings a day over the winters. The previous pair (a different maker) held up for 3 years. Sale price was outstanding and worth the price!

    I am 5'11" and 165lbs with up to 30lbs of gear. After taking the Komperdell Alpinist Snowshoes - 30" to Rocky Mountain National Park and traveling on the Colorado River Trail for 3 miles I am sold on these. They have excellent grip in icy and uphill conditions, and I never sink further than what is to be expected. The bindings are easy to use since they're just like backpack straps. I appreciate the buttons on the loose end of the straps that keeps them from dragging in the snow. They feel very natural for me and I have no complaints.

    I purchased this pair along with a woman's set for my wife and I to use around Christmas. However, with the lack of snow thus far, I haven't been able to use them. They appear to be of high quality and I'm excited to try them.

    Couldn't wait to try these out, with the crazy winter on our farm in the foothills of the Allegheny Mts. My old snowshoes were ok in light snow, but had no grip on a crusty surface. These Komperdell allow me to get out in all conditions. I can easily trek up and down our hills and through the woods, and feel totally secure that I'm not gonna slip. They are narrow enough so the walking is easy. I love them! The bindings are quick and simple to use, and adjust to different size boots and shoes. I even strap my crocs in them to safely walk out to the hot tub! ha ha. No more cabin fever for this 62 yr old chick.

    These are great for rolling terrain, fields, & woods in deep snow. The 30" length gives you a lot of cover to keep you from sinking too deep.
    These are not the snow shoes you want for mountains or icy terrain.

    My only caution is, if you wear larger than a size 12 boot, you will not be able to get your foot in the binding. I wear a size 12 & I have to really jam in the front of my boot, and stretch the binding over my heel. This should get a little easier over time.

    The bindings are secured by one motion, which makes them very easy to put on & take off. There are no buckles or posts that you have to deal with in the cold.

    I've been out a few times since I received them, & overall I'm very happy with them. The price, especially since I took advantage of the extra discount was more than fair.
