Good general-use snowshoe
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mountain Mama from Angel Fire, NM on Thursday, April 5, 2012
Altogether a pretty good snowshoe. Relatively lightweight and the bindings are great - secure, comfortable and easy to get in and out of and/or adjust. I did find this model a little wide - it gave me the sensation of needing to widen my stance slightly. One suggested use I read before purchasing suggested they would be useful for photographing wildlife because they were so silent. Can't agree with that. While on a solo hike on a quiet afternoon they made a pretty good clackity-clacking. And by the end of a long hike it seemed like they felt heavier than models that have the back hinges that help lift the tails. But altogether a good shoe. Won't replace a good lightweight racing snowshoe, and I'm not sure how well they would perform for serious backcountry use (I haven't tried them for that), but altogether a good all-around use snowshoe. Plus, they do look really sharp with nice graphics, and they come with a nifty carry bag. I'm happy with my purchase.
