by cbchopsticksfromi need video on how to usethese are not very good in deep snow, i find myself sinking to my hips. once i break a trail. then its fine. but its sure hard to walk in these snow shoes when i'm sinking 3 feet into the snow.
perhaps, i'm just not using them right?
i did have to buy smaller snow boots as my arctic boots were to large for the toe area and even with smaller boots. the strap is not long enough to reach the side clip. regardless, they still stay on nice and secured.

by ChrisForNewThingsfromGreat, but not for meI bought these as I'm new to the sport and they came highly recommended by the staff in Westminster. However, I kept flicking snow where my bum would be covered. As they don't make a butt gaiter... I decided to exchange them and got the MSR Ascent and am enjoying those MUCH better!
The flicking of the snow has to do with the bindings (per what I've heard from REI)- is its independent then less flicking; if it's attached (like these) mmore flicking.

by master of nonefromIt's a keeper!These snowshoes are with me at all times while playing in the Wasatch. They are light and fit in my smaller backpack. Very easy to put on and take off when needed no matter the conditions. My micro spikes and these get me anywhere I want to go. Easy to switch back and forth between the two. So far-no limits. Fun to open up the trails with these. Feel very secure and sure while keeping 200 lbs on top of the snow. Very pleased with my purchase and that's a rare thing.
