Great snowshoes for children. There is very little to go wrong with these, and are a solid construction. They're not overly aggressive, but for what a 4 to 10 year old should…

I've had the snowshoe for five years now, but admittedly it's only had heavy use within the past year. It's been great for whatever I've thrown at it, included moderate inclin…

I got these for winter hiking, and ended up trading them in for the MSR Lightning Ascents. The snowshoe was too long, there wasn't enough traction, and the climbing bars were…

My experience with snowshoes includes climbing in the Adirondacks and hiking around snowy upper Midwest winters. These snowshoes have everything I look for in snowshoes.

I bought my girlfriend and I both a pair for Christmas last year. These are worth every penny, very well built snow shoes. The bindings are easy to manipulate with gloves on.…

These are my first pair of snowshoes and overall they are pretty good. I have put a few miles on these things so far and traction is no issue, even on icy slopes. In addition…

These have been great for me so far. I got them for a song on clearance and it was a purchase I'd make again. Haven't had any really soft stuff to try them out on, but I think…

My friend and I both bought these snowshoes and we take them everywhere! Because of the side grips, the stability is incredible and you definitely feel like you can climb up,…

About Snowshoes for Hiking and Trail Use:
Everyone should go snowshoeing at some point in their life, there is no experience quite like it. It’s also the closest I have ever come to walking on water, except for the time I went ice fishing. Snowshoes work by distributing your weight over a larger surface area, thus allowing you to safely hike across areas that have experience deep snowfalls. I bring my snowshoes with me everywhere I go, just in case there is sudden climatic shift (we’re overdue for one).
Snowshoeing is a great way for hikers and runners to stay active in the wintertime. Snowshoes are also ideal for tricking people into thinking that there is an abominable snowman on the loose, or maybe just a gigantic snowshoe hare. I miss my gigantic snowshoe hare, it was even more fun to ride him than it is to go snowshoeing, which is still pretty fun.
Snowshoes have been around for thousands of years but the advances in technology that go into making them today makes me believe that one day snowshoe technology will be so advanced that man will be able to snowshoe across the surface of Uranus.
So the moral of the story is that you don’t have giant snowshoe hare so you should probably get yourself a pair of snowshoes for going on awesome winter adventures. If you come across my gigantic hare in your journeys don’t worry he is friendly and responds to “Duchess”. Try to lure him back to me using carrots. He loves carrots.
