by fromawesome I have taken these on 3 trips so far and am very happy. I think the first reviewer may not have been operating the bindings correctly; I find them super-easy to get on and off, secure, and quite comfortable. They havent's loosened or slipped even while scrambling up steep slopes in the Cascades. These are also one of the most affordable pairs of snowshoes that include heel lifts- nice to have if you live in a place like Seattle where all the nearby snow is in the mountains. I've worn these some on icy snow, and so far am very satisfied with the traction. I suppose the flexible plastic design is one you either love or hate; I happen to fall into the first category, as these feel much more like a natural extension of my foot than other shoes I have tried (Atlas 1225 and MSR Denali). I often forget I'm even wearing them, and because they are so flexible I generally feel less fatigue and knee pain afterward than I have with other models. Some potential cons? Well, the noise. Just like with any plastic snowshoe, it's definitely tough to carry on a conversation with your hiking partner. I suppose the durability of the flexible plastic could be an issue down the road, but so far they've been rock-solid. These also aren't designed to have enough float for deep powder, so logically they're not appropriate for people who often snowshoe in those sort of conditions, especially if they are on the higher end of the recommended weight range.
