I purchased these snowshoes and am quite happy with them. I love the collapsing poles and the quick release handle on the straps. The "claws" on the bottom work real well, even on solid ice found on all the paths in my nearby urban park A couple of improvements would be 1) instructions. Since these are geared to first time users, the lack of instructions confused me. I wasn't sure where to set my foot in the shoe, what the lift-up bar in the back of each shoe was for, and whether the very tight tip covering the metal tip on each pole would come off. I assumed it did, but took some prying with a screwdriver. The ST and Yukon websites were no help either. So I looked at YouTube demonstrations, till I knew how to put the shoes on correctly and how to assemble the poles. 2) stronger band clips. One of the band clips snapped during my first outing. I'm very careful with them now, but they could be made of sturdier plastic.
