I hate winter and snow, but I hate not being outside even more. So I bit the bullet and bought a pair of snowshoes. I chose these because they came with poles, and I liked the look. Totally unscientific, though I did check the length weight ratio to make sure I was ordering something suitable. I looked at a couple of youtube videos on how to snowshoe and off I went. Initally I had some trouble getting one of the poles to lock and for the basket to stay locked in place. I went to the manufacturer's website and watched a video specific to this series of snowshoes and it was very helpful in resolving those issues. So far so good, I've been out with them three times in deep snow (a foot of cover?) and have unbroken fields as well as traipsed all over in the woods, doing small hills up and down.
