Super cool snowshoes!

These are only the 2nd showshoes I have ever used, but they were by far the best. The binding is very secure and easy to adjust, the only problem I had with them was tightening down the strap on the ankle area so that my foot wouldnt slip out. I think part of the problem was the boots I was wearing. Once I got them tight enough, they stayed on for the rest of the hike. I was mostly on groomed ski trails and a little bit of back country. I found they sunk in the fresh powder up to 18". I weigh around 210, so I was approaching the weight limit, so maybe that is a normal amount. I could actually run in these on the groomed, they are so light and nimble. I love the shape of them as they keep my stride normal. I read a nice review on them from an avid snowshoer and purchased based on that. I am not disappointed.
