Great Snowshoe. I weigh around 185 and with gear around 200. I bought the 30" shoes for the extra support and they work great. In the Midwest right now we have about 24"-30" of snow in the timber (most of it is all powder) where I do most of my hiking. The shoes are dropping about 6"-8" before I find bottom. Seems like a lot but without the snowshoes in would be nearly impossible to get out there.
